Excellent communicator. Answered all my questions in detail and discussed items that I didn't even consider. Never felt rushed- took all the time I needed very patiently. One of the best doctors I have ever visited!

My family has had several primary providers since we moved into the state in [year removed] and we've never been satisfied with them. We are extremely lucky to have found Dr. Paquette who actually genuinely cares about her patients and advocates for them.

Dr. Paquette is the BEST! I worked at Good Sam for 40 years and had several Legacy affiliated PCP's. Dr. Paquette is by far the best PVP I've had during those 40 years. I cannot say enough good things about her.

I would not recommend my doctor because I feel she has to many patients. it's hard to get in. I tell my friends I have the most amazing doctor. they ask who I say not telling you because she has to many patients and it's hard to get in. they do their best to squeeze you in if something comes up but she has to many patients. That's the only think I think is unfair to the patients. please reconsider how many patients a doctor should have and then cut out 1/3 of your numbers. would make us patients happier!!!!!

Dr. Paquette is an amazing doctor, and Legacy should be proud that she is providing top-notch care for her patients. Other doctors could absolutely learn a thing or two from her kindness, understanding, compassion, and thoroughness. Her friendly MA (Jen) also does a great job of keeping in touch if there are any concerns that crop up and is extremely efficient. (One suggestion totally unrelated to Dr. Paquette, and this is for the Legacy Bridgeport clinic in general (heck, any medical office nowadays) -- it would be great to see a bit of an overhaul to make the actual space a bit more warm, modern, inviting, and relaxing for patients and staff alike.)

I am a retired 40 year Legacy employee. Dr. Paquette is the absolute BEST PCP I have ever had!! She does back adjustments which is phenomenal. I have always thought that this would be an area that Legacy would do more advertising for. Plus she is thorough, professional and remarkably a really kind physician! You won't find any better in the Legacy Health System!!!

Dr. Paquette is hands down the best primary care physician I have ever had. She is always ready to listen to me, discusses my options and concerns with me, and is my advocate in every way. I often recommend her to friends but she is so well liked there is a long wait to get in to see her.

My appointment fell on a day of the ice storms. When I called the office to reschedule, there weren't any available appointments, but Dr Paquette rearranged her schedule to accommodate me. She is a most excellent physician. I've never had the level of care and attention of a doctor quite like I've received from Dr. Paquette.

I am [age removed] years old so I have had many doctors over the years, but Dr. Paquette is the best I have ever had in every way. She makes you feel like you are the most important person to her in the spent with her and she listens and cares. I hear so many of my friends complain about how the doctor just works on her computer and tries to rush them out as soon as possible. That is never the case with Dr. Paquette. She is amazing! I am so thankful I found her at this time of my life. The Legacy system has been a good fit for me and I think it is well run system. Thank you

Dr. Paquette is the best at what she does and I'm scheduled for the next 2 years with her. If I don't schedule that far out I could end up not seeing her for months. I think Legacy needs more like her to fill the need.

I absolutely love Dr Paquette. She is the best Dr. There in lies the problem. If I get sick, I have to go to urgent care. Sbe has me booked out 18 months for appts. in order to get me on her calendar! That's cra,y!! I'm sorry, no Dr, no matter how good, should be so booked up that you can't get in for a year and a half!!
