I've had many doctors in my lifetime. This young lady is "Top shelf"! Learned, attentive, engaging, proactive, thorough, compassionate, wise. If you are fortunate enough to have a provider such as her or her as your provider count your blessings.

Dr. Secrest is one of the best doctors I have ever gone to. She is attentive and thorough. She actually listens to what you tell her and does not try to prescribe a pill and push you out of the office. She schedules necessary test and helps you to decide the best course of action. When you return...more

Takes time listen to what's wrong, rather than assume what's wrong. I have doctors at Emory and I like her better than some of them! I've recommended Dr. Secrest to a LOT of my friends and family! And will continue to do so!

Dr. Secrest was amazing. I usually leave a doctors office disgruntled after any visit. Not with her. She was very friendly and caring. For once a doctor that treats me like an educated adult instead of a toddler who knows nothing.
