Every appointment feels rushed. I don\'t think adequate amount of time is spent, we are paying for a service and 5 minutes in the room after you\'ve waited over 20 is unacceptable. I don\'t think my provider listens to personal needs when there has been a history there.

she is not my normal dr. I appreciated her fitting me in but she spent very little time with me she listened to my chest, gave me an xray and sent me on my way with no word of explanation or any other tests. when I rec\'d the xray result her comment was #hope you feel better." she did not test me for flu or give me any medicine for my cough, pain or fever and I had to beg for information from her on MyChart. the next day I went to urgent care and tested positive for the flu and pneumonia and a sinus infection. I rec\'d the proper treatment there. I have been w/S&W for many years and this was by far the worst experience I have ever had w/a doctor. She literally let a flu patient walk out of her office with "hope you feel better." It was ridiculous.

Although I\'ve only had this one visit with Dr. Suffridge, it was a very positive experience. The staff was super helpful and kind. She was able to write my referral and respectfully listened to my concerns. She also strongly encouraged use of the web portal, which I think is awesome! It was a little stressful to find a PCP after moving to the area, and I can tell I got lucky on my first shot!

Dr. Suffridge brushed off my symptoms for the second time. She made me feel as though none of what I said was actually heard. When I asked how we could move forward and if we could retest any previous labs or check anything new, she told me she wouldn\'t because she did not think they would show anything. At one point in the visit she implied I was there for "a pill to fix everything", but she doesn\'t have one. I never asked for medication, nor had medication even come up in the visit until that point. I have since followed up with a specialist and she has already checked my labs again without me asking, because the ones on file were considered old. I\'ve been battling the symptoms for at least a year and only wanted help finding out the cause of them.
