she had questions about prior visits with drs. in Minnesota and I had all my medical records with me on a thumb drive which give her the answers she was looking for. as far as being unfamiliar with my condition she had some helpful tips. glad I have her for a dr.

This was my first time meeting NP Barnes. She went over and above to give me information I didn\'t even ask for. My appointment was to establish care, but she wanted to make sure I had everything I needed as far as care goes for my current pregnancy by printing a list of medications safe/not safe to use (she did also remind me to check with my OBGYN too!)

I booked this location on mistake and I am so happy that I did. Melissa was absolutely amazing. It was the first time in years that I have been treated so wonderful by a doctor. She truly cared about the concerns on my anxiety and medication: something that no other doctor who was treated my anxiety has shown. She was down to earth, fun to talk to, and beyond helpful. I feel so lucky to have found Melissa and BSW. She is absolutely amazing at what she does and I look forward to my future appointments with her. Thank you, Melissa! Also, the service at the clinic was amazing. I was not even finished checking in yet and I was already being called to be scene by the nurses. I never had such a fast and effective time at the doctor. I love BSW and will suggest Melissa and this clinic to everyone that I know!
