Not informative. Barely examined or listened to me. Went in for a UTI asked about possible Kidney stone, and was not even remotely interested.

Exceptional. I called and made an appointment and was offered a number of options including the same day, the next day or later. My provider listened carefully to my concerns, asked appropriate questions to clarify the question/issue, responded with respect and immediate action. She is articulate, sensitive, knowledgeable and has an excellent demeaner that responded/connected with my own style/personality. She has ALWAYS taken my medical concerns seriously and reacts with proper information, tests and, if needed, referrals.
