I like face to face visits

The nurse assistant asked when I arrived if I wanted the flu shot. I said No. When the doctor came in and asked I again said No. The doctor then became highly emotional, tears in her eyes telling me so stories of people she has known who have died from influenza. I ended up getting the flu shot because she made me feel like I had no choice in the matter that it was life or death. This made me EXTREMLEY uncomfortable. I am now looking for a new care provider that can respect my choices on vaccinations. This was unethical.

Laura has incredible professionalism, and such wonderful bedside manners/ empathy. As a woman and a runner/athlete, she just "gets it" and often knows many of my concerns before I even verbalize them. If I have a friend searching for a competent, caring PCP, I always recommend Laura.

Dr. Laura was terrific, especially since we didn't have the best video connection. she was very patient and was able to diagnose my problem fairly quickly. GREAT gal!

She was very knowledgeable and showed great compassion. She was worried about my health and even offered some advice on what to do next.
