Best Dr. in the house. Have been using Dr. Phillips for about 20 yrs and really have a trust in his practice. He has treated me fairly and in the upmost fashion. He is the "Pro" in his profession. He also is surrounded by great nurses, especially Dana Purnam. Besides being beautiful and is a RN, she is friendly, treats her patients with a caring thought and makes every visit a delightful one. Greenview needs more nurses like her.

I was at my worst with high sugar. I did make a scene in the lobby, and apologized for my actions. However, I had seen DR for years and this was out of character for me. I simply wanted a scripted for a glucose box. Dr was out and they gave me a heard time until they just gave me one? Why not give me one to begin with and charge my insurance? I didn't curse or be vulgar just wanted help. Did I get a phone call checking up on me? Nope instead they sent a letter saying I need to see another dr.
