I just was dissatisfied because information I expressed did not accurately make its way into the chart. I felt like I was not being listened to.

Reviewed on Mar 14, 2017

Unfortunately, this provider did not take the time to understand my presenting concerns, was quick to give advice that was not particularly relevant given the context, rushed the appointment, and seemed more concerned with giving information out and moving onto next patient, this provider would benefit from bedside manner/empathy training

Dr. Oberle is an excellent physician/caregiver. She made me feel that I would be getting the best care possible.
