I left that appointment with a very comfortable feeling that I was being very well taken care of and in the best care possible. thank you Scott and White for having this wonderful PA on your staff.

She made me feel as if I was the only matter she had to deal with that day. She explained every detail I was curious about in very plain "layman" terms to me.

Excellent discussion of my concerns and options to address. Very clear on instructions for preparation and why the method was used. Greatly increased my confidence in the practice. The ridiculously long wait without contact had me just about abandoning use of your practice. If the appointment had gone poorly, you would never have seen me for the procedure.

Samantha also did not treat me like a number or a single issue/problem. She worked to address all of my health issues at the time of my visit even as she concentrated on my main concern.

It felt as though the provider cared about my issues and factors, but did not have the level of expertise to answer the questions that I needed answers to. The Physicians Assistant did not know some of the information that I wanted to know about. We had to make yet another appointment to see the doctor, which would be another appointment with the doctor before the scheduled procedure. I realize that the doctor's time is precious, and that you are trying to use it in the most efficient way possible, but if I have questions that only my doctor can answer, then I need to see the Doctor, not just the PA.
