I have been a physician Assistant for 20 years. I have seen and worked with a multitude of physicians over many years and Dr. Vinton is clearly one of the most apathetic. I was there for a physician exam and for heart palpations. She listen to my lungs through 3 layers of clothes and moved the stethoscope before I had a chance to breath in. She looked at my throat from 4 feet away with no light and listen to my heart for 2 seconds. This was not a physical exam. She was obviously just trying to meet some of the bullet points for charging purposes. She asked me only two questions about my current problem and then referred be to a Cardiologist. I told her I thought my thyroid medication dose might be too high and even when the labs came back that it was, all she did was refer me to an Endocrinologist. The last time I saw her it was a similar experience .. I will be finding another primary care provider. I my experience , she has no business seeing patients.

She was very kind but when asked a question she wanted to put it off till our next visit. I also felt that some of the information she gave on nutrition wasn't evidenced based. First impression wasn't great but I'm still planning on seeing her again.
