    To concerned with "checking all the boxes" off the list of questions instead of listening to patient concerns. Doesn't return patient's with questions phone calls - pawns it off on nurse. If I wanted to speak with the nurse I would have requested to speak with the nurse. When I call to speak with my PCP I expect a return phone call from the doctor.

    She has been my PCP for many years. Recently she marked that I have Stage 3 CKD (Chronic Kidney Disease) on my online chart. I found this a quite a surprise, since I have just visited her the previous month and she had NOT mentioned it! She responded that she told me in a "round about sort of way"! Since then I have found a new PCP who assures me my kidneys are fine! She is adequate at giving out a pill for an infection-but that is about all! If you need a REAL DOCTOR, she is not the one!
