Has her own agenda. Frivolous testing, makes you schedule an appointment for EVERYTHING, even receiving test results. Refuses to have nurse give results over the phone. I called and wanted to change my birth control after being on it 6 months. She made me schedule an appointment, told me to "suck it up" that my medicine made me feel bad, and refused to change it until my next physical. Finding a new Doctor was the best decision I EVER MADE. This woman is LOONEY!!

Dr. Chism is very thorough. She caught a problem with my lab work that was done at a previous doctor's office that was overlooked.

Rude. Demeaning. Requested me to make another appointment for a second question I had during an initial appointment. Argumentative over symptoms I mentioned and said couldn't be true. She told me at my age I needed to write things down because I didn't remember where I had lab work done once. Requested to change doctors.
