I am so happy that we found a gem of a physician so close to home! Dr. Smith is wonderful and I can see now why she has so many glowing reviews. I was nervous about switching our family care to a new doctor but after the first visit, all my worries went out the window and I feel good and comfortable bringing my family to this clinic. We are listened to, cared for, educated, and treated well. 10/10.

Dr. Smith and all of the BSW staff were attentive and kind. Dr. Smith spent time with me as a new patient and asked probing questions and applied motivational interviewing concepts to conduct her assessment. I can\'t say enough how much I appreciated my visit as a whole.

The doctor was an hour late to my appointment. No update that doctor was running late was provided by team, no offer to reschedule. I understand things happen, but if a doctor is more than 20 minutes late, her team should be updating patients, especially when we\'re required to check in 15 minutes early. In total I was at the clinic for 2 hours, which is ridiculous

Dr. Smith is very friendly, courteous and professional. She takes the time needed to explain test results and then provides options for medications for any problems. She gives the patient a chance to help decide which medication option is best. Extremely helpful doctor.

Dr. Smith is the most compassionate and caring physician I\'ve had. She gives a thorough examination and provides a not rushed femeling that maked me feel important and not part of a patient mill. The nurse and phlebotomist were extremely patient and made their part of the visit pleasant as well. I appreciate all their hard work to provide a great primary care experience.
