Lori is the best PCP I've had and she always spends enough time for a careful examination and explanations.

incredibly friendly, and nice, didn't make me feel like a burden and took her time explaining things and did everything she could to make sure I was going to be taken care of.

Everyone in this office goes above and beyond! The reception staff is always very helpful and friendly. I feel Lorita is always very thorough and has one of those great personalities that put you at ease.

Lorita was very personable and professional. She answered all of my questions and reassured me when I had concerns. I was very impressed with her and the way she took care of me.

Lori is the best. I feel 100% comfortable with her and completely confident in her recommendations. She is willing to take the time to listen and problem solve to help me feel better. She is a true professional and a great representation of Mercy.

The moment the Dr came in she was not friendly. I felt attacked for making an appointment to fill a medication I needed. I brought my other meds so they could be on file as I am a new mercy employee and they didnt have any records. I was going to see if this Dr. was taking patients as it was going to take a while to get in with another but after this visit I dont know if I would go back. I never felt attacked by a provider before but I was really disappointed as people said she was a great Dr. and she may be knowledge wise as she got my needed prescriptions filled and a referral made but she made me feel more anxious than I already was and it wasnt a real good visit. We all have bad days but based off of this visit I am sorry to say it but I wouldnt recommend her to my family or friends.
