I thought I was getting a physical but leaving the visit she had only listened to my heart and poked on my abdomen and said I was healthy and she would see me in a year. She did not ask me to point out where my concern was nor did she think I needed blood work since last done in Aug 2018. If physicals have changed, I apologize.

Sep 10, 2019
This provider almost encouraged me to stop breastfeeding, didn't wash her hands when coming into or exiting the room, diagnosed me with allergies, but then proscribes me cough syrup, you better hope my baby doesn't catch what I have because I can promise you it's not allergies. She didn't even educate me on how to keep my baby from getting sick. She really needs to work on focusing on the patient's needs and concerns. I didn't receive anything close to patient centered care.
