He is very tolerant of dealing with ad-hoc questions and issues outside the scope of the appointment, and very efficient and informative.

Not only would I refer this MD to other but I have. The only draw back to this provider is the back office staff on check out. If I need to get an appointment I usually message through mychart and schedule or talk with a PSR that I like to deal with.

look I had a pleasant experience but what I scheduled the appointment for wasn't addressed the sa me day. I told the receptionist when I scheduled the appointment what I needed, they should have sent me to a specialist first instead of wasting my time. .

Due to subfreezing weather, lots of ice, etc. the provider was running about 10-15 minutes behind schedule. Staff came to the waiting area to explain this. It was not a real long delay [...]

Dr Stoddard was originally my sons Doctor. I liked him so much that I started seeing him. I've never had a Doctor that showed more care and compassion. We are so lucky to have Dr Stoddard as our Doctor. [...]

Dr. Stoddard and his staff were wonderful. He was scheduling over a month out, and the receptionist I spoke with was able to follow up to get me an earlier appointment. Everyone was courteous and friendly while we were there and Dr. Stoddard put us at ease after a slew of challenging experiences with other doctors. He exceeded our expectations and we couldn't be happier with his care.

08/09/2016
I didn't mind that I had to wait past my appointment time. I figure that's because the doctor is paying attention to someone who needs him. All I care about is that he pay attention to me when I need him, and I feel that Dr. Stoddard is definitely a doctor who will do this. I am happy to wait my turn. I was really sad when Dr. [...] left his practice, but I am quite pleased with Dr. Stoddard as his replacement. I feel very fortunate.

This was a first patient visit with this doc. He didn't ask any of the questions I thought he should have and he was way to shy and obtuse about asking questions about sex related issues. He didn't do any follow up on my urgent care visits. He didn't seem to have any records.

06/12/2016
Dr. Stoddard is excellent at his job.
100

06/08/2016
I have always had good experience upon check in with the front desk gal. [...] I have ease of access to my issues. It took some time to get into my provider due to the fullness of their schedule. However, I also know if I need urgent care I can go there for those needs and make follow up appointments with my provider later.

06/07/2016
this was my first visit with Dr. stop dared to establish primary care and I,was very pleased with the appointment .

06/07/2016
Very kind, explained my questions, was not in a hurry. The doctor called on a Sunday to go over my lab results, never had that happen to me, also scheduled more test to be run, very concerned.

06/03/2016
Dr. Stoddard never reads my file. I have been w/Prov for many years, and have had excellent care. Dr. Stoddard just does the minimal required and will not help me mentally or physically with plan. he seems to think [...] is a cure all. He "plays it safe" as a physician. I am not the only patient upset.

05/30/2016
The doctor listened and provided answers and suggestions and asked the right questions.

05/28/2016
Doctor Stoddard is the best doctor that I have gone to and I have seen a lot of doctors. When he wants me do something he doesn't say "do this, do that" he asks politely " What do you think about this new thing/change? Would you like to do it?". If something were to really wrong in a lab test he gets in tough with me right away. He has called me on nights and weekends with important info.

I can't tell you how much I appreciated Dr. Stoddard this month. His nurse was very quick to fit me in as I was dealing with some very intense anxiety. He was so gentle and patient as I explained the reasons for my anxiety. He helped me think about what type of treatment would be most beneficial and connected me with a local advocate for specialized assistance. He called after business hours to check on me and make sure I had the right number for the local help. I have bragged about him to everyone. We feel so blessed to have him as our family's doctor.

He did not look at I'm over weight and if I lose 5 pounds he always tell what good job I'm doing.

Dr. Stoddard is a very caring and compassionate Physician who seems to truly care for his patients. One never feels like just a number who must be rushed thru an appointment.

04/12/2016
I thought Dr. Stoddard was very personable and easy to talk to. He didn't seem to be in a hurry at all, though I know he is very busy. I really appreciated that. It was my first visit with him, and I sure hope he can be my doctor for years. I know I will enjoy working with him and feel safe with him, able to express myself and have an active part in my health care.

Dr. Stoddard is outstanding. I always feel he hears me and works to involve me in my own treatment. Every Dr. should strive to be like him. I also love the office personnel. I feel fortunate to be a patient of this office.

03/29/2016
Office staff was not very helpful with scheduling. I asked about the possibility of being put on a call list if there was any available appointment. I was told that I had to schedule an appointment first, so we proceeded with that. The first opening was a month out, so I scheduled it and then the receptionist promptly hung up without adding me to a call list.

This was our first visit with Dr. Stoddard after Dr. [...] moved to urgent care. Dr. Stoddard was prepared, cared about what we were doing, listened well, and answered all the questions we had.

Dr Stoddard has THE BEST bed side manner. He responded immediately upon my sudden hospital admission and checked on me 2 more times over the 24 hours I was there. He also delivered my daughter on his one afternoon off rather than passing it off to the doctor on call. Then came in the next day [...] and made my discharge as quick and efficient as possible. When I was having a hard time in my personal life he personally called to give me some not so great results. After delivering the results and knowing I was having a hard time emotionally, his nurse [...] followed up with 2 phone calls to check on me later that week. I really appreciate him and his team.

02/09/2016
I feel Dr. Stoddard is a very good Dr. a real asset to ST. Marys

02/09/2016
Dr. Stoddard took the initiative to order the pathology report from [...] when I had a [...] biopsy to confirm what the actual outcome was. I always believe it was cancer and he report back to me that it was pre-cancer. I appreciated finally understanding this result which he handled in a very responsive manner.
