Dr. Van Houten was very thoughtful and personable. I don't often have providers who ask me about life outside of being their patient, and she made me feel cared for by listening.

reception did not have covid friendly contactless options such as clean pens and clip boards. they asked me to fill out a mental health survey which was never addressed in the visit. the nurse did not share the results of my weight in pounds or the result of my blood pressure.
