I did not care for this particular doctor. I thought I would try a provider closer to my home, however I would not see him again. I felt uncomfortable and judged. He made me nervous for some reason. He spoke to me as if I had absolutely no knowledge of how bodies or medications worked. He asked me what I would like to do about my medications, and then insisted I immediately stop one, and add several others. (With absolutely no medical history of any kind.) Never asked for my previous medical records or history. I also mentioned I thought I may have had an infection, he told me to go to my dermatologist again and ask her. He made it seem like he actually wanted my input, however that was not the case at all. I found him extremely condescending and almost arrogant. I\'ll be returning to my previous doctor this week, even with the drive.

I couldn\'t be happier with how this location performs time and time again. From the beginning of my experience, the receptionist answered the phone as promptly as can be expected and genuinely tried to fit me in as quickly as possible. Once in the office, I had to update my insurance, and she was very helpful with my questions on the paperwork to do so as well. After a brief period, I went back to be seen by a nurse, a practicing medical student, and Dr. Gaertner. Prior to being seen by the student, I was asked if it was okay for him to ask me a few questions so he could practice his interviewing skills. I appreciated that I had some say in how I was treated. I have been to other teaching hospitals where this was not the case, and this was a pleasant change. Through every step of the care process, the nurse, student and Dr. Gaertner were very efficient with their questions and examinations without seeming cold or uninterested. Finally, after Dr. Gaertner made his diagnosis, he asked me if I had a preference in antibiotic prior to prescribing one. I appreciated this, as I have had varying results with some of the commonly prescribed antibiotics in the past. Once I concluded my appointment, the receptionist was once again very proactive and helpful, asking politely if I needed to schedule another appointment. I have always had excellent service at this location l, and I have been nothing but impressed with both the attitude of and level of care provided by the staff here. Also, I cannot overstate how much I appreciate being involved in my own care. In short, this location has met or exceeded my expectations on every occasion, and I will not hesitate to return or to recommend it to friends and family.
