Everyone has been amazing from the receptionists to my doctor, the assistants and lab tech's. Only downfall is the current change in requesting lab tests etc. I had to come back a second time to have a lab test done that should have been done the 1st time around. Which ended up being the main reason I came in the first time around. Frustered as I was I understand their are kinks in using a new system.

Kim and I talked about a different provider for Dermatology and she made a note to send a referral to new dermatology provider but when I got word that a referral had been made it was to the previous office I didn't want to use! I think it was the staff that was not understanding or reading her notes. Any way I'm still waiting to get this resolved [...]

only downside was when I called the first two times to establish care, I was told to call back 3 weeks later and the. told again there were no openings and to call in 3 weeks. the next day my mom was able to call and get me a first appointment.

Frustrated that I have to initiate getting a referral to find the basis of my pain. After having an ultrasound and in the report it gave a result that findings were associated with lupus, and yet there was no discussion and pursuing a treatment for it, other than a repeat ultrasound in 6 months.

Kim Newell takes a special interest in her patients, and she really cares. For example, she remembers my background and keeps up-to-date, she truly listens, and she doesn't just "guess" at what may be the issue, but she does all she to get to the bottom of it. I feel comfortable with her and trust that she always has my best interest in mind.
