I have medical anxiety because a previous health organization dismissed my diseased galbladder as being "in my head" until it became a medical emergency. Linda knows how to give it to me straight to calm me down. She keeps me grounded without mocking me for being worried. She is the perfect provider for a person like me, and I appreciate her immensely.

May 2016
Linda is personable but to the point. She is very efficient and I like her a lot.

I am just weeks from 84 and with 23 years active duty in the military. So if I tell Linda very friendly & courtesy. Then that´s the way it is. Wonder young lady.

November 2015
Exceptionally pleased with the care and resolution of my medical problem (migraines) that I´ve been dealing with for quite a while. First visit with this care provider (who specializes in migraines) and my issues were taken care of and seem to now be resolved!!

November 2015
Would have liked to know what dose of the medication was being given and had input on it.
