I came in for a Medicare check-up. It was not clear ahead of time that this visit was only to check my vitals and look at tests that I might need. THe paperwork before the visit was not clear on this. Dr. Budesa took time to answer questions but had to change it to an office visit.

Dr Budesa's intern Michelle was wonderful and very thorough with her exam and questions for me. Together she and Dr Budesa put together a plan for some testing and I really appreciate all of their care and putting my mind at ease.

Dr. Budesa is the best doctor I've ever had and I would quite literally be devastated if she ever left.

The times that Dr. Budesa couldn't see me right at appointment time were because patients before me took up extra time due to health concerns. Sometimes I've taken up extra appoint time due to my health concerns.

We seem to struggle with right questions to ask. I've been after an updated MRI on my back. That's my primary complaint. For years now. I feel she doesn't always listen to me. & I hav to suggest a plan

She was prompt, efficient and knowledgeable, but came across as slightly abrupt. I mean very slightly. More like she was anxious to get to the next patient. Not enough that I would hold it against her and if I needed to see her again, I'd be perfectly ok with it.

I trust my provider completely. She is thorough and willing to take whatever time with me is necessary. I use my health and I am always pleased about the speedy reply to any questions or concerns I voice. I feel like the office staff is competent and does their job.. just think they could be a little friendlier.

I forgot to ask about bone density test I took a few months ago. Still dont know results. I do not know how to access the online help line. This is a source of frustration. I got mail paper work on my mammogram but not bone density info.

After blood tests came back, I emailed MyHealth and directed my questions to Dr Budesa, wanted to have her explain two tests that had high numbers, a nurse followed up on a call back that day and said she would tell Dr Budesa I had some questions, and I would hear back the next day. No answer from Dr Budesa and it's been 5 days. Does she not do follow up calls when a patient has questions? I'm Disappointed.

Dr. Budesa is always very attentive to what I have to say or my concerns. She is professional and understands my needs and medical history.The receptionist that assisted me that day was a bit unfriendly and doesn't even know the name of the nurse that was going to assist me. She probably was not in a good mood that early morning.

The receptionist are the best they are caring and professional . When you call the office they are so helpful and efficient. The medical assistant was new to me but I still felt very efficient. Dr. Budesa was very helpful and knowledgeable when I saw here. She really wanted to get answers for what is going on with me . I feel she is a very smart doctor and know when I have a health issue she will figure it out. I wasn't familiar with the X-ray technician but she was caring and did a good job.

I would like to have my test results. It has been 2 weeks and I have not seen them. The nurse told me she would call the next day that never happened. The receptionist said she would cancel my health per my request. I don't know if that happened.

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.
