This was my first visit with this provider because my other provider left. I wanted to establish care but I also came in with chest pain, which I told her about. She dismissed it as a reaction to a steroid injection I received days prior but I felt she should have listened to my heart or done an EKG. I ended up having to go to an urgent care four days later because I still had chest pain and they did an EKG. I am going to find another provider because she also ordered blood work and there are abnormalities that I feel should be taken seriously and she is not.

Before I left the office, I did ask the nurse since was my one year check up before I left the room. I said to the nurse I noticed that one of my prescriptions was not on that check out sheet she said call the pharmacy and they will contact them for a refill. The problem was is the Reefe feel the original prescription for my one medicine was from a doctor in Arizona, so I had to call back the office to let them know that this needed to be a prescription through them. This was a hassle for me because it took time to find out from the pharmacy that I had to have this done through the doctor when I could've did this in the office before I left, they would've been more helpful for me so if they would look over the prescriptions and make sure that the doctor is taking care of all of my prescriptions that I need in the future, this would be helpful. Thank you.

Had a good visit. Ms Paul had obviously reviewed my records and she asked for my feedback on my health issues. She was very respectful, articulate and efficient. The only issue I have was how long it took to get this appointment to get in to see Ms Paul after having to transition from Dr Abney. Support and admin staff were all great also.

I think of a wellness check as the same as a physical. After I left I thought, she did not check my breasts for lumps, listen to my heart, check my ears and while it may or may not be necessary do a pelvic I guess I am wondering why these things did not happen.

I have only been going to Melissa Paul as my PCP for about 2 years. We are learning how to work with each other and I am encouraged with how we are progressing. As a result of this visit, she referred me to a clinical pharmacist within her internal medicine group due to the complexity of the medications that I take for treatment of cancer. The referral to the clinic pharmacist was an excellent call by Melissa Paul.

I expressed medicalConcerns, she tried to get me to take a medication I wasn't comfortable with, I said how about if you give me a Referal to a specialist for a second opinion she said no I'm not allowed to do that unless you take this medication for 30 days. Which is lie, my insurance doesn't require a Referal anyway. She just didn't like that I wanted a second opinion from a specialist. I wanted to find out what was wrong with me not take a pill to cover it up and ignore the issue for 30 days then she said ok well then o can't work with you anymore then fired me as a patient. She did the same thing with someone I'm a poa for where she insisted it was one problem we siad no it's not that and we found a specialist and they figured out the problem and gave the RIGHT prescription. We tried to tell her it was not the issue she thought it was because but she didn't listen. Normally she's great but not all clients are just there to take a pill and cover up issues. Some patients like myself want to get to the root of the issue before they start trying a bunch of different pills

I am newer to this office. I haven't yet developed a report with my provider. She's intelligent and personable but I often feel like I'm inconveniencing her, I'm rushing her. And sometimes It seems she focuses on one thing I say and misses the heart of my need. I really like that she's well rounded and I can get all my health care needs basically covered in one office.

I come back to see Dr Paul because I feel very comfortable with her. She always listens to me and answers all my questions. Dr Paul lets me know if we need to change my medicine and why. I have told friends who are looking for a new dr about Dr Paul and will continue to do so. The receptionist lets me know If there Is any information that has been changed and explains everything to me. They get me check in, in a timely manner.

Why have people sign endless extra cost waivers? This is frankly alarming (my first thought was why am I being asked to sign a waiver for a service I know should be covered? I had to call insurance from the waiting room just to verify office staff didn't know something I didn't about my coverage - which was not the case), and patient liability for costs not covered by insurance is already included in the COR. I was asked to sign 2 different waivers AND the COR for this visit.

Ms. Paul is a very good listener. So important! I knew I was heard when discussing a problem of continuing joint inflammation in multiple areas that is keeping me from being safe (falls & ongoing risk), daily pain which is worse in the wee hours of the morning, and having trouble with some of my ADL's. I have been very discouraged and even despondent for this much pain. Ms. Paul identified two medications I take that can contribute to this as well as cognitive issues. We agreed I would stop those 2 meds and come back in 2 weeks to check in with her. In the 1st week, I was seeing appreciable reduction in my pain. I walked into my P.T.'s office for my appointment 6 days into this 2 week period and she could tell I was doing better by the way I walked in the door! I feel so lucky that I made the choice to go to Ms. Paul after my previous internist left the practice 7 months ago. She's just terrific!

Specialists I have been sent to have still not diagnosed and offered any solutions to problems related to structural changes from a high pressure ischemic event that cause issues with proper drainage from my head at night. Because multiple specialist doctors have not followed up with proper testing to provide a diagnosis, my primary care doctor treats me as if the symptoms, which continue to leave me in a very bad cognitive condition after sleeping for 3-4 hours, are not real. The more comments I have in my medical record, which is shared with all medical providers, the less likely I am able to get a specialist doctor to give my condition any attention.

She was very rushed although I was on time for my appointment. When the appointment was made I said It was for an assisted living form and a referral. She hurriedly completed the form. She refused to talk about the referral saying if she gave it she would have to follow it and she is not my regular doctor, but I can't get into my regular doctor until September.

Prior to my appointment, I received an electronic questionnaire regarding my health and concerns. I answered it completely and thoroughly. When I met with Melissa the questions she addressed seemed to have nothing to do with the questions I had addressed in the survey. In the survey, I had mentioned shortness of breath. Melissa didn't bring that up. I mentioned my alcohol consumption, and I will be receiving a call about outpatient treatment. I mentioned I thought I might have an ulcer because my stomach hurt. She concurred that if I was taking Meloxicam and drinking alcohol it was likely that I had an ulcer. No recommendations were given. There were other concerns that I brought up on my electronic check-in form that weren't addressed. It makes me wonder what was the point of my completing this form. Additionally, I was given another form to complete in the office that I didn't finish before I was called back to the examination room. I told her that, and she said I could finish it while I was waiting for Melissa in the exam room. She took them with her after she'd taken my vitals, etc. There is no way I could have completed the forms. I wonder what purpose these serve besides busy work for the patient if no one reads them? I know I was scheduled for a longer than regular visit, but 10 of the 40 minutes was taken up by the assistant. This is the first time I have been beyond disappointed with Legacy Salmon Creek, and I really do hope that someone reads and acts upon my concerns. At this appointment, I really did feel like I was "on the clock", and the primary concern of Legacy Salmon Creek is keeping all appointments on time.

I am concerned with information that gets put on my medical history that is not true i.e., vertigo, blood clot, and pre-diabetic. I have never had vertigo and never have had a blood clot. Where is this fabricated information coming from. I have addressed with Melissa and expect that it should be off my chart. I should know better than anyone what medical issues that I have.

The provider was short, curt, and invalidating. It was a negative experience. She did not seem interested in what I had to say. Her approach to my concerns was either dismissive ("that's to be expected") or very cut and dry ("you need to see someone else for that"). When I attempted to communicate my experience to the provider by MyChart, she disagreed with my synopsis, took no accountability, gave a passive aggressive non-apology ("sorry you felt that way"), and maintained a stance of invalidation. I will not be returning and will not recommend this provider to others.

I told the doctor I was having a flutter feeling in my throat and knowing I have bad anxiety she said it could be irregular heart beat so that made my anxiety go throw the roof, yes then the nurse did a ekg took it to the doctor and instead of the doctor coming back in to tell me it was good the nurse just came in and said your good to go, for me it would have made me feel better if the doctor would have done that. I know they get busy but it would be nice to take alil more time.

Melissa Paul and the office team provide excellent care in a timely fashion, which is not as common as it used to be.

My husband and I had trouble securing a doctor when we moved to Ridgefield 3 years ago. We were accepted by Melissa Paul's office as new patients and have only seen her since. We feel we have had good advice under her care.

Melissa is very kind and knowledgeable. She was clear in instructions and in treatment plan. I would recommend her to any friend.

I wish I felt less like a perfunctory check-in that could have been done by telephone! It was a waste of my time and hers to be there in person for no more information than came out of the appointment. It cost her ten minutes. It cost me three hours for pick up and delivery times. I also wish I felt the least bit of interest in my person and my life to know who I am and try to relate on a friendly basis. She is too business-like for me to relate to as a person I would trust to help me heal. I don't really connect, although I have no complaint about her competency as she points me to specialists. Not all the solutions are drugs, and if there were more interest in me as a person, she might have a different take on what is the best care for me.

This provider let me know that if I feel an urgent need to see her that I could message her and she could she mee sooner than my scheduled appointment based on need/acuity. That was helpful Information to know.
