I for one really appreciate a receptionist who greets me with a warm smile and makes me feel welcomed! And adds in maybe just a little small talk before getting down to business!

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.

Team and receptionists always efficient, friendly, and professional.

This is the best care I have ever received. Dr. Budesa has taken great care of me for over a decade now. We were one of her first patient's when she joined Firewood. Her assistant Megan is professional, personable with a great sense of humor. The ladies at the reception are all wonderful.

I have been so pleased with the attentive care I've consistently received from both, Dr Budesa and her team. Dr B has an obvious willingness to listen to her patient, explain what's not understood, order proper tests when needed, always helps get my prescriptions processed in a timely fashion - we communicate mostly online for such matters and my requests are promptly fulfilled. I do recommend this practice and Dr B to friends for all of the above reasons and more.
