Dr. Sammond is not my aunt's regular provider, but was an excellent substitute while re-establishing her PCP. For not having any background with my aunt, I thought she did an excellent job attempting to figure out the best course of action and Med changes for my aunt's current health situations.

Dr. Sammond was a breath of fresh air as compared to my previous physical exam.

One of Dr. Sammond's best attributes is that she doesn't talk down to me. It is not unusual for doctors to treat patients as if they're mentally deficient simply because they don't also have a medical degree. Dr. Sammond doesn't do that. I assume she is good at assessing each patient's level of understanding.
