One of those Doctors that will tell you what you should do without really listening. In her mind, she is the "Doctor" and you are the "patient" and you need to adhere to what she tells you without questioning. If you don't, you will spend the visit politely but tensley arguing. Not a good fit for a person that sees the Doctor/patient relationship as peer to peer.
I was impressed. As a former hospital administrator, I've observed a variety of physicians. She's exceptional. Thorough exam, excellent listening skills. Great written instructions. But the most unusual thing? She called on a Sunday night to see how I was doing with my nasty respiratory infection. This goes above and beyond in my opinion. This entire practice (PV Family Medicine) is rock solid. Love the excellent nurse practitioner, Lindsey Teel, RN, also.
I have seen Dr. Coulombe for the past five years. Very professional and thorough. Takes time to explain procedures and answer questions.
she is a friendly person
I have been seeing Dr. Coulombe since shortly after the birth of my son 18 years ago. While no doctor, nor person for that matter is perfect, Dr. Coulombe has always been there when I have needed him. He treats you with respect and does not discount your concerns like some providers who have become jaded. His practice has always been professional and prompt with any matters I may have had. I am an employee of a large oncology group and previously worked for a large hospital based groups.
I have had Dr paul coulombe for yrs I think 20 yrs , he is a amazing Dr and he has always helped me with my health issues very professional I wont know what I am gonna do when he retires it will be sad and confusing for me hes one of the best doctors out there thank you to my health insurance to for sending me to him :)
Excellent knowledgeable considerate Doctor.
Dr. Johnson is a friendly and through Doctor. Thanks to that he found a serious, life threatening condition, which I have had taken care of. I highly recommend.
Because of insurance changes, I've had many PCPs over the years. Dr. Katz is the most caring physician in the city. He takes as much time with you as you need. He makes you feel as if you're his only patient. Other doctors act so hurried, they aren't fully present, and they don't listen. Not so with Dr. Katz.
Dr. Past was very thorough and very personable. She talked to me and asked many intelligent questions. She found out, thru specific tests, what my problem was. I trust her very much.
Lindsay takes the time to talk with her patients instead of trying to get to her next appointment as soon as possible, like I've felt with other Drs.
I had almost given up on being a patient at Paradise Valley Family Medicine, but when my old doc left and I had an appointment w/ Dr. Paar, it renewed my faith. Dr. Paar is professional, caring, and empathic. I have had doctors in the past that treat you like cattle - in and out, little detail or concern for your maladies. Fortunately for both Dr. Paar and my own self care, I have gotten myself to an excellent place with my physical and mental health.
My case was somewhat complicated by Dr. Paar was patient and thorough in diagnosing the true cause. I appreciated how she called that evening to see how I was doing.
All my appointments with Dr. Paar have been both professional, and relaxing. Dr. Paar has made me feel comfortable, and at rest when having seen her for my medical needs. She is very well informed, and when needed has kept me up to date with my physicals, and medical needs. Dr. Paar has a very relaxed demeanor, yet shows professionalism when addressing my medical questions. I would highly recommend Dr. Paar as a physician.
Dr. Paar was wonderful in diagnosing my recent pneumonia that was misdiagnosed at a urgent care. She took her time and was very thorough with my care and follow up care. I've never had a Dr. or doctors office have such a human touch before. I fully trust Dr. Paar with my care and would recommend her to anyone I know. Thank you so much Dr. Paar!
