I love Dr Prestwood. I've had numerous primary care physicians, seeking one that listens and doesn't just wrote a script or send you out to get another opinion. She cares about me as a person and patient, takes her time getting to know me and my medical background, very open minded on treatments...more

She listens to what you have to say concerning any personal medical concern or question you may have. You know that you are being treated as patient and not just another number.
