Jodi has been my Primary for years. Today she facilitated an appointment with a cardio physician since my old one had moved away. I'm very pleased with Jodi and her recommendation.

Provider did not address my ankle pain, no x-ray done, just an ultrasound

Dr Houghton was phenomenal. However, she told me I needed to get supplies for a 24 hour urine sample collection and was told to go to office 275 for said supplies. When I got there, the person flat out refused to look up my information and instead claimed I needed a blood draw, which I did not and did not schedule time for in my day. My provider told me I just needed to pick up stuff for an at home urine sample. The woman at the desk at 275 closed the door before even speaking with me and when I attempted to go back to fix her mistake, the office was closed for the day. I went back to my doctor's office, as I live far away and was understandably upset that the people in a medical office would not take the time to read the paper given to me by my doctor and that meant I now would have to take ANOTHER day off work just to come pick up cups to urinate In. When back at houghton's office, the staff at the front would not listen to me and again, did not even read the paper given to me by their very own office and claimed I had to do testing my doctor did not order for me and it was my fault for not scheduling the test (which I had been told to do 20 minutes prior by my doctor and was told I could do on my own time, at home. Not scheduled.) and continually cut off by the employees while I tried explaining the situation. They then called to a lab who said they could get me in, which I walked to the lab and was once again told I'd have to wait and that I needed to take another test that was not ordered for me and the receptionist did not even take the time to look up my file on their computer. As much as I enjoy seeing Dr Houghton, my overall experience at peace health was extremely disappointing and I've never felt like a healthcare office cared less about helping their patients and it makes me weary to want to schedule my labs and continue to see my provider there if this is what's going to happen when I'm simply trying to follow my doctor's orders.

I talk a lot and I don't think the provider likes this. I don't think she likes me. She does solves my problems, though. She once said, a year ago, "Is there anything else you want to talk about? Don't think too hard." That stuck with me. I know I have a lot to say at each appt., but still. I suppose I could find another dr.

Thankful I was able to get a same day appointment with Jodi. I needed help immediately and received the care I needed. Unfortunately, I can't remember the assistant who was with her, but she was most helpful and attentive as she understood my situation and conveyed the information to Jodi. Grateful for the both of them.

Jodi always listens and responds to my questions or comments. I trust her decisions and really like her. She is very patient oriented. I 'm glad that she's 30 years younger than me. Hopefully she won't retire before I don't need her anymore.

poor bedside manner and shaming regarding my weight stating that my edema and shortness of breath is weight related. I only saw her because [removed] was on vacation and I will never see her again. in fact, she is the same individual who misdiagnosed my husband as having vitamin deficiency as opposed to MS. I did not know it at the time and if I had would have waited until [removed] returned.

She was caring, thorough, knowledgeable, and as usual followed up immediately in myChart with requested information and test results after verbally going over them. She also asked before I left if anything else was of concern/need today.

I called about a UTI. Immediately I was given an appointment with Ms Houghton. When I checked in the front office immediately took a urine sample, then I saw the Provider, discussed what was going on, she read the fast results, provided a prescription and I was on my way. Stellar experience.

this is the first time I have been seen that day when I called with an immediate concern. before I've been referred to urgent care. I so appreciate being seen as I have just had a hip replacement and was concerned about a potential infection. thank you.

I thought she covered everything concerning my health very well. I especially was pleased when she said I need another DEX scan to see if the Evista medication was working and explained why. That is something I thought was very important to me that she picked up on.
