RICHLAND, WA |
Dr. Ahlstrom has a wonderful manner, very personable. She seems to be very caring of her patients, and driven to discover the cause of a complaint. She caught something on my CT scan that slipped past other providers, and I have a great degree of trust in her ability.
in Valley, WA |
I liked her demeanor and attitude. I liked how she explained thoroughly my condition to me. I liked how she noticed something unusual about me that she said would bring tobmy PCP's attention as something that he should check on.
