Everything is very slow. Appointments are not open, once at the hospital I have to wait for over an hour past my scheduled time for the doctor to come in, [...] and after I get sent to do [...] tests and I call to follow up about the results, no one calls back or follows up.

Dr. Denise Maner is an exceptional Dr. She has all of the knowledge needed, but not everyone has the ability to make a patient feel safe about opening up about sensitive health issues. She makes a patient feel protected. She is a good listener and adviser. She is not judgmental and is always encouraging. She truly wants us all to thrive. We are not just a number to her. She goes above and beyond to make sure our care is excellent. She makes every minute with her feel like she was born to be a Dr., not like others who make you feel like they can't wait to finish the day and get out of there. I can't imagine having comfort with any other DR the way I have with her.
