Loved the no wait time to enter the exam room. Swiftness of how everything went except the lab. I sat for almost 20 mins. Before going in.

There is a feeling of needing to hurry the visit. Makes you feel like you are part of an assembly line.

  Oct 11, 2023
I have been a patient of Dr Budesa's since [date removed] and to date, she's been the most effective and efficient primary care experience ever - I trust her insight and guidance and think she stands apart from other doctors in that she actually HEARS and responds to my concerns - I've never felt my concerns are dismissed by her as in other past experiences I've had with providers. I recommend her to my friends whenever I have the opportunity because of the consistent, long-term, positive experience I've had with this practice and Dr. Budesa. I never feel judged by this professional as I've unfortunately felt by other doctors in the past.

  Oct 11, 2023
Very good thank you and god bless

  Oct 3, 2023
I never fully understand what I'm told about changes, referrals, etc., etc. There are times when I don't think she truly understands or believes what I say. She is a very nice person and helpful in some situations, but I've been disappointed in the last two appointments with no helpful information.

  Sep 26, 2023
Team and receptionists always efficient, friendly, and professional.
