Couldn't be improved upon. From the moment I enter the office I am not only treated with warmth and courtesy but also a very professional attitude that gives me confidence in everything that is done during my appointment. (and on the phone and through the patient portal as well)

Dr. Ken Stevens is clearly knowledgeable, double board certified, and appears to be keenly interested in the physical facts related to his patients' health. He appears to be quite busy, which could be interpreted to be disinterest in his patients, but he seems to nice for that to be true. As a result of visits, a patient should feel very confident in his diagnoses and recommended treatments. However, the personal, emotional component that is an important element of a patient's health care is largely ignored in the typical appointment, and communication in lay terms is difficult to elicit from Dr. Stevens. This is particularly important as it relates to Life Style choices which are significant for patients to alter to improve health. More time spent on ensuring patient understanding, with empathy, and investigation into social/psychological reasons for patient behavior would result in superior results for both doctor and patient.

My experience with Dr. Stevens and his Team has been absolutely fantastic. I am always treated with respect and kindness. His office is very profession and friendly. My appointments always start in a timely manner. Both Dr. Stevens and his Team make me feel like a person, not just a "patient".

I am following up on my previous review from May 18, 2019. Highway robbery! Even though I have disputed my bill from the start and have RELUCTANTLY been making payments, they sent my bill to collections - of course, right when I am trying to refinance my house. I was making payments on the over $600 they charged me for tests I did not ask for or want. I went in to get my right leg checked for claudication and arterial stenosis was not addressed until the appointment was over and I asked if I had it. It is what I asked for when I made the appointment, but the tested me for everything under the sun and not the thing I went in there for - until I asked at the end. Then I got an outrageous bill. I was never given any information or findings of the expensive studies they performed against my will. They would not work with me on the bill, so I was making payments. After 3 they sent my account to collections. They would not budge on the charges for studies I did not ask for. Don't go!!!

Have been coming to Dr. Stevens office for years. Out of multiple doctors he was the first to diagnose the correct symptoms and come up with a comprehensive plan to get me well again. During the entire time, his staff, from the receptionist to the nurses to the managers and book keepers have all been friendly and courteous during the entire time. I have gotten to know them all very well and we have a light conversation experience every time. I have seen quite a few come and go, but they all have been so wonderful to be around and are genuinely concerned about my well being. Some of them have harder names to remember and pronounce than others, especially Marisol, took me forever to get her name right. Would highly recommend Dr. Stevens and his courteous staff to anyone who needs his type of care.
