I have been seeing her for 20 years and am completely baffled by what others are saying here. She is kind and caring and completely knows her stuff as well as remembers you.

Awful. The PAs and NPs are good though. She was very nasty,yelled at me, kept interrupting me when I wanted to bring up my heath concerns, and didn't address the main health issue I was there for. I'll be switching my primary care for sure.

Dr.Tota-Thurn is a very thorough clinician. She is focused and complete in her examinations. She is also a very caring and engages into your individual needs. I am so happy that she's been my primary physician for the past few years.

My concerns were completely dismissed and I felt I was treated poorly by both the PA and Dr Tota-Thurn.
