This was a "Walk In" and I expected to be there for several hours which was not the case....my provider in this instance was very through with her examination and explanation of the prescribed treatment...I had at least 2 follow up questions regarding some interaction I was having with one of the medications and her response was quick and reassuring....excellent service and attention to my situation....high marks for her and she is an asset to the Scott and White staff.....

Duarte was an AMAZING care provider. I saw a doctor two days beforehand who didn\'t do much for problem or giving me an exact diagnosis of what I had so I was really nervous going in that this would be the same case. However she was very attentive, gave me a diagnosis right away and even sent me to the lab just to confirm it. Additionally when I freaked out about my diagnosis she reassured me by talking everything through with me and if made me feel a lot better. Plus the medicine she prescribed me worked over night. If in the future I have the opportunity to recommend her to other people I definitely will!

I felt that she should have at least ordered a test for helicobacter pylori, given that I was experiencing stomach pains. I might very well have an ulcer brewing. But all she did was tell me a different way to manage omeprazole and ranitidine. Also, I think testing for troponin and creatine phosphokinase would not have been out of line - it could have been a heart problem.
