She was so good at explaining everything to me and helping me pick a Doctor that I feel confident with.

She was more worried about my insurance & legalities than my condition.

It was a pleasant experience compared to other Healthcare providers

Great experience. I felt like the doctor / nurse gave genuine feedback to me and will be very helpful in finding the source of my back pain.

Ms. Carrissa showed compassion and genuine care towards my problems, I'm so thankful that I talked to her, she greatly helped me with my problems.

The PA was friendly, competent and professional.

Reviewed on Oct 6, 2023

The provider rushed through the visit and wasn't addressing my concerns!!

Reviewed on Sep 12, 2023

Very rude. She didn't even greet me. Suggested my back injury (3 discs narrowing with herniations in all, sciatica, etc.) of 7+ years was mental because I have anxiety disorders. Didn't thoroughly read the MRI results.

Reviewed on Aug 9, 2023

Was not definitive in her explianation ----- vague - answers oblique --- never made a strong point ---

Reviewed on Jul 28, 2023

Carissa was fantastic. I could not have asked or expected a better visit with her! I look forward to continuing my care with her in the future and would definitely recommend her to friends and family. She was a genuine pleasure to talk with.

Reviewed on Jul 7, 2023

Carissa showed exceptional empathy throughout out appointment, and she went above and beyond to troubleshoot the situation when I wasn't able to get the meds I needed

Reviewed on Jun 16, 2023

The experience was good because she explained the back issue well and more in depth than I had heard previously. It was also easy to understand.
