Erin Ross was TOALLY AMAZING. My son is a challenge and she handled him perfectly, with obvious experience in working with people with special needs. She knew the details from his extensive medical history and also looked at the past ENT's notes prior to walking into the room, so she did her homework. So very much appreciated as doctor visits are stressful for all of us. If 5 stars are the best rating, I'd give her 6!

Erin Ross is an outstanding and highly qualified providers. She is one of the best NPs I have encountered at the CCF.

the doctor was very thorough and I did not at all feel rushed.

the provider and colleague were incredibly kind and helpful. I was suffering and frustrated and in tears from being so exasperated by my issues. the team converged and collaborated with others to help me. I was very grateful for their care and thoughtfulness and thorough nature to try to work toward a resolution.

Erin was exceptional. She clearly had read my chart and cheerfully greeted me with an acknowledgment of what I was there for. I am mediately felt like I was being cared for by a part of a team and not someone who has never seen me before even though she had never met me before. From Dr. Abelson to Dr Sindwani and his nurse practitioner and now Erin have felt very well cared for

Dr. Ross is usually on it- but this visit was different. She even used the words 'I'm not blowing you off but..." In our phone call in June, she suggested I come in for a scope since it had been 3+ years - but during the visit, she attributed my issues to allergies, referred me to yet another appt. and didn't even scope me. In fairness, I didn't ask her to - but would have expected that she would.
