I went for my annual checkup. My weight was up but more concerning was my blood pressure was elevated. Dr. Ovella knew of the stress I have been experiencing for the past few years and had my blood pressure retested at the end of the appointment and a week later. The later checks on my blood pressure put me back into the upper normal range. She is very thorough and thoughtful in her examination. I have recommended and she now takes care of my immediate family.

Dr. Ovella is the perfect doctor for me. I have a few different issues besides a regular cold or flu. She listens very well and works with me to find the right medication or referral. I would recommend her all of my friends.

I have been seeing Dr. Ovella for 15 years. I've been very pleased with her care. She takes the time to listen to her patients and willing to go along (most of the time) with the patient's requests. I am moving next week and I hate that I'll have to find another doctor when I've been so comfortable with her and her staff.

I have been a patient of Dr. Ovella for years. She is very thorough. And when I leave her office, I feel confident that I do not have anything to worry about. The thing I like the most about Lakeview Primary is that I never wait long in the waiting room or the examination room. I would definitely recommend Dr. Ovella.

Dr. Susan Ovela it's one of the most professional Physicians I've ever encounter. Very thorough and very kind. I am so sorry that she decided not to see my husband and myself as a patient anymore. I have run out of medication and my husband was extremely nervousreceptionist was very rude and by that point my husband was angry. the nurse find out they call back and maybe my husband was firm with her and they decided not to see us anymore. he wanted to apologize to Angela but she never called

I have used this office for several years and have always been pleased. Appointments are generally on time and if not, an explanation is given. I waited a few minutes longer my last visit but the staff had explained she was running a little behind on a patient and it wouldn't be long. I was only delayed 10-15 min. I feel she explains things well, lets me have options and input into my care with choices when available.

I think what I like most about Dr. Ovella is that I never feel like she is rushing me to get to another patient. She sits there and explains everything to me until she knows that I fully understand. Another thing that is important for me is that if I have an emergency they always work me in. If they can't work me in with Dr. Ovella, they let me see the nurse practitioner. She is extremely competent and I feel very secure and having her treat me.

I have used Dr. Susan Ovella, MD, as my primary physician for several years. During this time she has seen me for both routine and annual exams but also serious illness. When I was diagnosed with a brain tumor she personally contacted me to follow-up and guide me through difficult decisions. She has always been professional but also exhibits true care and concern for her patients. It gives me, my spouse and family great comfort to know a person of her character and dedication is caring for us.
