Dr. "P" always takes time to greet me with a big smile, listens to my issue and then thoroughly checks out the issue and give me options if there are any. My wife & I consider her the top doctor in the Clinic we are always happy to visit with. She cares! She is a problem solver.

My doctor was running behind for the first time in my experience with Scott and White Dermatology. it was so unusual to wait yet I understand with the extra precautions and unforeseen needs of other patients. I know that I would get the same consideration if I needed additional attention. I love and appreciate my doctor, her staff and this health care.

I was most pleased that I was seen ( finslly) & I could not ask for anyone more through & seemingly interestef in my concerns. I felt so comfortable with her...and that is not easily the case. The highest compliment I can give to any one & especially to a doctor is that I trust her and felt very comfortable. I sincerely hope that she continues to ne thst person. I say this only because I saw one of your women cardiologist & I liked her also but second visit & computer generated dialogue revealed a not so interested doctor.My judgement says this competent doctor is as wonderful as she appeared first visit.
