  Overall Patient Rating - April 2020
This was a recheck and the doctor wanted to prescribe medications I have already been using. Did not know my history. I emailed a simple question to the provider and she would not answer unless I set up a virtual appointment and paid. In the end she did not even look at my skin issue nor my medical history. This could have been done in an email. No changes were made.

  Overall Patient Rating - March 2020
Dr Ochs is fantastic. Very knowledgeable and personable with patients. She always answers all my questions and asks questions herself to understand what is going on. I have seen some patient comments where they say she makes them feel rushed. Like she is always in a hurry to get out and must be overbooked. My experience all these years is that she speaks quickly and moves quickly but by no means cuts anyone off or shows she is more interested in ending the appointment then in properly talking with and treating the patient. I think listening well and providing care while being as quick as possible about it makes complete sense. Other patients need her too. I think she is absolutely outstanding in every aspect! I have to think some patients might take thing the wrong way is all.
  Overall Patient Rating - March 2020
*Dr. Ochs is very smart, but overbooked. I did not feel I could ask more questions b/c she was clearly trying to leave; I did not feel consulted, but rather told what I would do; I did not get the sense that she cared about me.
