Patient Comments (5)
Ft Wayne, IN |
The dr herself is good, but I had NP that I saw as my pcp and she was not. They messed up my meds, gave poor advice, pushed unneeded meds, and screwed up the billing. Went there for 2 years since moving here after being recommended by a friend (who has also found another dr). Oh yes, and wait times are abysmal. bring a book. Actual time with pcp is negligible and you wind up explaining everything 3 times to other staff members. Visits take forever and it's ridiculous when the time isn't with dr.

Poor communication. Poor staff. One NP is not professional and broke privacy act. My trust is broken which is a shame. Major trust issues.
in Ft Wayne, IN |
I've called numerous times to set an appointment up and only receive their answering machine. I have yet to receive a call back from ANYONE at this office. It is my impression that they are never open or are closing their doors soon. ??

She is an excellent doctor. She cares about her patients. SHe takes the time to answer questions that her patients ask her. She also has a very nice personality. I really like her. I highly recommend her as a doctor for new patients.

Dr Karen Evans and Susan Cox and the rest of her staff are the best. I would recommend them any day of the week. They truly care about their patients and give the extra time if needed for a patient which sometimes causes a delay but I would rather have a Doctor do that any day of the week then to send a patient home when maybe that patient needed another 10 minutes to talk about or work out a solution! God bless them all!
