Dr. Best is interactive and answers all of my questions and concerns, and did the same regarding a recent hospital stay I had in March, 2018. She referred me to a surgeon as a follow up to my condition. I trust her as a physician, which I admit was not easy me following a loss of medical coverage and care of my physician of 20+ years. She has shown kindness and care beyond my greatest expectation. Had it not been for her intervention, I would not have been able to schedule and get the care I needed for a diagnostic mammogram, and for that I am grateful! This is care, concern, and commitment outside of the usual expectation of a primary care physician. Thank you Dr. Lydia Best!

In general, Dr. Best was pleasant but I felt a disconnect and like I wasn\'t fully listened to when I wanted to explain some things about my reasons for not having seen a doctor for so many years and not wanting to be on medication. I felt a little like a number and not a person.
