Dr. Fothergill has been my internist for almost 5 years now, thankfully. She is exceptionally: smart, knowledgeable, caring and a true partner in my health. I never feel rushed and Dr. Fothergill patiently listens and thoroughly examines what is relevant and needed without overmedicating or pushing for unnecessary procedures and/or tests - a rare gem.

I have had several complex medical problems, and Dr. Fothergill always takes the time to listen and then comes up with a comprehensive plan. I am an RN, and so I know how to assess MDs. I am very conscientious and patient focused in my practice, and I look for that in a physican.

I have been a patient, of Dr. Fothergill's, for almost *five* years. Quite simply, she is, by far, the *best* PCP i have ever had -- it's *not* even close ... I have found Dr. Fothergill to be *fully* open, to my ideas and input, re the/my course of treatment. I absolutely *cannot* recommend her highly enough -- she is *that* good! Michael K.

Totally agree with 2 other reviewers. She ignored years of recommendations and medication history from the doctor she replaced, Dr. Frances Ryan. She has refused to renew 2 of my scripts that are hormonal in nature and decreased my script for another from 90 days to 30 day refills. She refused to listen to me. I told her this costs much more money and running around. She treats her patients with a cookie cutter approach not as individuals. Love Dr. Ryan, leaving Dr. Fothergill.

I had the same experience, great at first, but - was labled as "depressed" since I told her Lyrica made me feel very weird and not like myself, and I knew that could be a side-effect of the medication. But that was it, from then on, everything was due to "depression". That said, for back pain, hot flashes, you name it - she kept trying to prescribe low-dose anti-depressants! She loves to Rx amitriptaline. Not sure what hours she keeps, but is never in, which is frustrating.
