So happy I picked Kathleen as my PCP. I like her demeanor and knowledge and she pays attention to me instead of the computer.

Kathleen is wonderful. I was very apprehensive about seeing a new provider as mine just retired. Kathleen immmediatly made me feel at ease, and was great with my 5 year old son who tagged along.

The provider I saw was very friendly and took the time to make sure what I needed for nursing school was ordered and paperwork filled out properly.

Thorough, engaging and willing to discuss needs, questions and care options as they relate to me personally. Also welling to listen/support my reasons/decisions for doing or not doing certain health care actions and provide feedback and options.

This provider was new to me as my previous practitioner retired, so even though I was a little nervous about it, I was totally comfortable in a matter of minutes. I found her not only to be courteous and friendly, but also very thorough, addressing all issues I had and informing me of what I needed to know all along.

I LOVE KATHLEEN!! She´s straightforward, she really cares about what she´s doing. On my second visit she gave me a hug! She makes me be accountable for myself and that´s something I need but she never makes me feel bad if I´ve goofed up :) I can´t say enough - if she ever leaves I´m following her.
