Due to COVID I had to park by the three traffic cones on the west side of the clinic and call to the nurse inside. she went over the in-processing questions and then came out and escorted me to the room where Nurse Karanasos did a Hospital Discharge Follow Up. She was very thorough and was pleased with my recovery and showed true concern about my well being.

I appreciate Jennifer's factual, comfortable approach. Teenage boys don't love going to the doctor with their mom, but she makes them feel totally at ease, and they don't even realize she's doing it. She is approachable and knowledgeable. I am very picky and suspicious regarding people who interact with my kids. I would have no concern at all having them see Jennifer without me even present.

I appreciate that she speaks directly to my kids AND to me. Many providers talk only to the parent or only to the child, especially in the teenager years. Jennifer clearly cares about the whole person and my kids always comment on how much the like and appreciate her.
