I asked qbout getting testing for autism and she basically just told me I probably dont have it even tho she has no idea why I think I might have it and said she'd put in a referral to help me get it but was very dismissal of what I was trying to say/explain

The provider is overbooked. Every time I've seen her she's been rushed. I'm sure she's a great doctor if she just had the time to spend with her patients.

Dr. Smith was thoughtful and attentive. Thank you! (As was the nurse.) I have a high deductible insurance plan and this routine preventive visit was charged at $500. I am waiting to hear back from their billing specialist about more appropriately coding the visit.

Dr Smith is very thorough and helpful. The time I have is always a bit short, so I need to schedule appts more often so we can keep up, especially when urgent matters come along, we need to be caught up on everything else.

This was my initial visit with Dr Smith. She spent a lot of time with me. She's knowledgeable, caring, intuitive and thorough. I made an appt for my boyfriend I liked her so much. He's also new to town and needs a new physician.

This provide didn't listen to me about things I'm trying to manage my pain. She also posted in correct comments in the after visit notes in my chart that are NOT true what so ever. She stated that I am not interested in trying alternative things to try and manage my pain. That is NOT true. I had REPEATEDLY told her that I try SEVERAL different things along with taking medication. So I feel that this provider needs to correct those statements in my chart. Also I will be recording all future appointments with this provider so that this does NOT happen again.

Dr. Smith & her staff are always professional & thorough. The CMA neglected to sanitize the thermometer between patients & then put it down on a tray to be used again.

Dr. Beth always treats me with respect and empathy. If I say something is wrong, she asks questions to understand the root of the issue and never just questions my experience. She trusts her patients, and in turn it's easy to trust her as a care provider. I would recommend her to anybody!

I needed a cortisone shot in my arm due to pain from an injury. Dr refused to do the shot at this visit. Next available appointment was one month away. Why couldn't I get the injection at this visit? It does not make sense or refer me to a provider who could do it sooner. This is a broken system!

One reason I was at this appt was for covid booster. Between 2 consecutive appts I was here for over 2 hours and running late for other commitments. The booster was the last thing done after everything else was completed, after which I was told I needed to wait an additional 15 minutes obersvational period. I would have liked to see the booster given earlier so the observation period could have coincided with all the waiting I did while there, instead of at the end and making me wait even longer.

I think doctors must be so busy. I had hoped fit s follow up related to cause when I scheduled this visit. But that didn't happen and I felt Dr Smith just needed to get in and get the cortisone injections done and move on. Usually (ore-pandemic) she has more time for me to ask questions.

Dr. Smith's suggested what she thought was the medical issue for which I came to see her about, and she clearly explained why she thought this. She listened to me, answered my questions and showed a very caring nature toward me. She gave me clear instructions regarding how to take care of the issue at home. I was very pleased with the care I received from Dr. Smith.
