I arrived early and was immediately taken back to the examination room. The nurse-practitioner (April Donovan) met with me very quickly. She was concerned, and very helpful and did not rush me in any way. She asked relevant and detailed questions as to my condition. She answered all of my questions thoroughly. She is a consummate professional and a very valuable asset to this practice.

The NP was reviewing my record to see if we could further reduce my Omeprazole needs. She performed a checkup and how the past year has gone and answered my questions. Very professional NP and helpful in determining to further reduce my needs for meds.

April was fine but I prefer to see the doctor. Dr. Bassel is overbooked and it takes at least 5 months to get an appointment with her. I had an endoscopy late October. Dr. Bassel told me to schedule a follow-up appointment in 4 months. at that time, I was told that late April was the first appointment available.
