Dr. Phibbs is personable, approachable and timely in responding to portal questions.
  Overall Patient Rating - May 2019
I really appreciate Dr. Phibbs and her ability to relate medical info clearly so that I can understand it. Also, she is very caring while being very professional. Best primary care physician I've had in a long time.
  Overall Patient Rating - May 2019
I'm thrilled to have found *Dr. Phibbs. I appreciate her explanation, discussing the nature of my condition, types of medication, options, including me in ALL discussions.
  Overall Patient Rating - May 2019
I had extra concerns other than those I scheduled my appointment for and Dr. Phibbs addressed them too.
  Overall Patient Rating - May 2019
I don't feel as if Dr. Phibbs wants to get to know me so she can treat me holistically.
  Overall Patient Rating - May 2019
*Dr. Phibbs was entirely unfriendly, dismissive of me, and shamed me for taking a medication (prescribed by *Dr. Mostov) that she would "never prescribe in the military," etc. She was unprofessional: insulting *Dr. Mostov's integrity and capability as a doctor, while shaming me for taking a medication that has helped me a lot, I've taken as prescribed, and has never been a problem.
  Overall Patient Rating - April 2019
I have recommended *Dr. Phibbs to 2 of my friends & they have also been very happy with her.
  Overall Patient Rating - April 2019
I understand she has many patients, but waiting in pain for over 3 weeks to see her was hard. Also, I understand we all have bad days, but I felt as though I was being talked down to, and my words were not taken seriously. Still to this date, I am in pain. It's hard to sleep, and the only relief I've been offered is physical therapy, which I will be setting up today.

Dr S Phibbs is an asset. she has a wonderful patient relationship which is important to me. through, and aware of my needs as a patient
  Overall Patient Rating - February 2019
My physicals for the past two years have been hands off and I feel as if she is bored and and shrugs off my concerns. I am NOT a chronic visitor and try not to complain.

Not my regular provider but perfectly fine
  Overall Patient Rating - January 2019
A very poor exoerience. Dr. Phibbs has zero people skills. She lacked meaningful information on menopause symptoms. she scoffed at the treatment I inquired about. when I pointed out that the treatment was exactly what was prescribed by other medical providers she stated that those providers must not practice in evidence based medicine. ( The provider is a long time VM doctor). I waited a long time for this appointment as I needed to establish a new provider as I had been gone from the area for a little over a year and my long time primary provider had retired during my absence (Dr. Leatham was amazing). I wanted a woman doctor. Dr. Phibbs stated she would reach out to her OB/Gyn colleagues and get back to me. I never heard from her.
  Overall Patient Rating - January 2019
Wonderful to meet *Dr. Phibbs. She stayed with me long enough to answer/review all of my questions.
  Overall Patient Rating - January 2019
I like her clarity.
  Overall Patient Rating - January 2019
Dr.Phibbs has always been very involved with any concerns and is a very personable doctor I would recommend her to anyone and their families it has taken a long time to find a doctor that keeps it real with you and gives you straight answers with many options she's really there for her patients.
