Dr. Budesa has discussed options for my chronic back problems. She listens and gives me alternatives to deal with it. I appreciate the options as I'm really trying to avoid surgery.

Dr Budesa is one the most helpful providers I've ever seen. I've been her patient for several years and am confident in her ability to knowledgeably address my medical concerns and provide options related to managing systemic problems.

I realize the doctor was running late, but I had another issue that I wanted to be addressed first that my husband apparently didn't mention when he made the appointment because I literally couldn't talk. I was really put off when I was told she didn't have time. Seriously, I have had lyricist for six weeks and a lump on my throat I could feel that hurts. She did take the time and confirmed it's just allergies, but it just really surprised me.

This was a "wellness" visit - no important concerns - due to COVID - I'd not seen the doctor or had any relevant tests!

I had been at this clinic with a different provider before, I had switched providers because I wanted a woman in the meantime I ended up at a different clinic which did not measure up to Firwood, after much frustration with them, I'd had enough & came back to firwood because I knew what kind of exceptional care I would recieve there. I dont plan on leaving again.

I believe the lab tech that took my blood needs more training. I got a large hematoma from the blood draw. I have a big vein, so this has never happened before. She kept the tourniquet on for a long time, and kept nicking my vein while drawing blood. It was the most uncomfortable blood draw I have ever had.

Dr Budesa does not stay up on her patients or request follow up of referals she refers out. Then ask the patient/ care giver to ask the specialist she referred patient to about medications upon next visit. She is the primary care and should be organizing and doing all labs and info for her patient.

Dr Budesa knows me and my quirks. I tend to prefer a natural wholistic approach and she respects that and tries to accommodate that. Dr Budesa is personable and friendly and listens to me. Dr Budesa is very knowledgeable and current with medical issues. She always addresses my concerns and looks things up with me if she doesn't know. She always gets back to me in a timely manner if follow-up is needed. I really like having Dr Budesa as my doctor.

It was a routine checkup including blood work. I was in and out in about a half hour with all my questions answered. I had no wait time at all. I checked in, the assistant came to get me, the doctor came right in and the blood draw right away. I already have my results. I could not ask for a more positive experience.

Although I seldom need to see my PCP (Dr Budesa) she always arrives prepared (obviously she reviews my basic chart before coming into the exam room) and I truly appreciate that. She is v cautious about what prescriptions she orders and she explains why - gives me peace of mind and greater understanding.

I can rely on the Firwood Clinic staff and Dr. Budesa to be respectful and helpful during every visit and on every phone call. One point concerns your software. I have only sometimes successfully filled out the pre-appointment health update and information forms Online. When I attempted to comply with the clinics request to do so prior to this appointment I was caught in a closed loop which prevented me from using the form. When I selected "Other" on the first page and clicked Next I was looped back to that same page. There was no way to move beyond it.
