Always interested and concerned for me and my conditions. Follows up quickly if abnormal tests results come up. Very good at going over health information with me. Does not make me feel as if I am being rushed or that the computer is more important than I.

Was under her care few few years. She was tooooo busy to help me figure out my chronic inflammation. Her answer was Drugs drugs drugs. I wanted answers. Her last words to me were “ I don’t know what you want me to do for you” Never went back. She’s moody and acts as though I was a bother.

So as a middle aged woman I got lucky and was assigned to Dr Haskins. I love her! She listens and is honest. She talks politely and honestly. She doesn’t leave anything unturned and if it’s not in her scope of practice she will refer you to someone she trusts. Glad to have her on my side!

Dr. Maybee has been my pulmonologist for 4 years. Knowledgeable but if you aren’t in his drug trials he isn’t very interested. The final straw was when he rejected a prescription refill I use daily without explanation leaving me without my daily medication.
