I´m already recommending Dr. Phibbs to others!
This was my first visit and she made a very good impression but hasn´t had to help me with anything really yet because this was a first appointment of a wellness exam.
I felt like the doctor did not spend any time with my concerns or asking any questions about my health. Greatly disappointed. Will most likely not come back to this physician.
Dr. Fibbs was very professional but also very friendly and relaxed.
Very easy to communicate with. glad I chose her.
*Dr. Phibbs is a great physician. She is, by far, one of the BEST doctors I´ve ever had!
Dr. Phibbs is always patient with me and explains everything. She is very caring -
Only my first visit so too early to rate confidence. Very impressed with time spent answering questions. 9. Too new right now.
I find Dr. Phibbs to be smart, caring, practical and very personable. She is very interactive with me and is responsive to my occasional email questions.
This was a first visit, and I feel comfortable keeping her as my new PCP.
Dr. Phipps was terrific. First time I had seen her.
She seem condescending, ridiculed my healthcare choices, spoke negatively of alternative healthcare and I felt pressured to have an injection I chose not to and felt looked down upon by that choice. I won´t be back to see her and will tell others of my negative experience with her. She left the room after the appointment abruptly and dismissively.
Appreciate having info in writing when leaving, but wish more info was also put in writing.
1st time but excellent.
This is the 1st time I have met this care provider. It is too early for me to tell if I would recommend her. She seemed great.
She was friendly although a little rushed.
Recommended Shannon to my sister and daughter. Her practice should fill very fast.
Second time meeting Phibbs. Felt more comfortable with her...I think that I´ll keep her!
I had a very nice first meeting with Dr. Phibbs.
This was my first visit to Dr Phibbs. No frame of reference yet but first impression is good.
Wish sometime in my & my visits the dr. would listen to heart & lungs. Its been years sine my past dr. has & _____ with a new dr. I would think she would.
Dr. Phipps seemed like a nice individual but I got the impression that her focus was not on me but on the clock, making sure she got through the appt. in the allotted amount of time. Unlike my previous doctor, she did not invite questions from me and she did not follow-up with questions to things I said. To be honest I was really disappointed in the encounter, it felt so impersonal. Not sure I´ll be back to see her.
She was very nice. It was my first time seeing her.
I have just started seeing Dr. Phibbs and I am so impressed by her willingness to discuss my history, concerns and issues. I feel like she really listens to me and wants to work with me which I really appreciate.
Took extra care in providing thorough explanation of patient health questions.
I was pleasantly surprised at the length of time Dr. Phibbs took with me and helped to establish a good relationship with me as a new patient.
I understand that awarding all "5s" in any survey is suspicious, but this seriously is the first time I have had such excellent care! My physician explained things about the meds I was taking that no other physician has ever explained! The "4" was just because I was a little confused about which tests I was to take. A lot was going on at the same time, and I wasn´t listening as closely as I should have been.
Dr. Phibbs couldn´t have been more friendly and thorough during my examination. She answered every one of my questions in great detail and never rushed to ensure I completely understood. Thrilled to find such an incredible primary doctor. Thanks.
Shannon was very attentive w/me and my mom-in-law. Very educational for my 87 yr. old mom-in-law´s diabetic condition - on top of med suggestions.
This was a "meet & greet" appt. as I am a new patient. My next appointment is for my annual physical. I just moved to Bainbridge Island.
Dr. Phibbs gave me explanations of medications that I have been on for many years that no physician or pharmacist or Internet search ever uncovered. She is the best communicating physician that I have ever met.
Dr. Phibbs is outstanding, my visit was a good experience
The appointment was the most complete of all. Everything I came for was discussed, not rushed and answered. I do not trust surveys with all answers being very good or very poor, however all these are accurate.
I have had more thorough annual exams. No breast exam by doctor.
She was fantastic! She answered all of my questions, addressed all of my concerns, and extended herself generously with recommendations, etc. She was, as I say, fantastic. I would go to her any time!
