Nothing But Awesome
Kayla has been one of my primary care providers through a couple of surgeries. She's been amazing at all of my pre and post-procedure appointments. She's been very thorough with information and has a gentle and deft touch when she goes hands-on.

Kayla is very knowledgeable and personable. She is very detail-oriented and possesses outstanding interpersonal skills. Kayla answers all questions very thoroughly and makes sure you understand what is going on. I feel safe under Kayla's care. Kayla should be an instructor, as she thoroughly explains everything very methodically and very clearly for post-op care. Kayla is a very compassionate and caring person. She has on outstanding work ethic and extremely professional. Kayla is the type of person you want to build an organization around, a pillar of competency, strength, and communication.

Kayla is very knowledgeable, thorough, and professional; beyond that, however, she is also quite personable, engaging, and caring, displaying true empathy and understanding for her patients. She makes sure that all my questions are answered and that I understand everything she is saying or explaining. I look forward to and enjoy my visits with her. I recommend her very highly.

I can't say enough good things about my experience with Kayla! She is gentle, knowledgeable, affirming, thoughtful, and reassuring. She also goes out of her way to learn how to improve her practice - something that I've never experienced before. I've been getting lidocaine injections from her prior to marathon electrolysis sessions (to prepare for bottom surgery). The first time we did them, we hadn't yet figured out the right mixture for the anesthetic, or the best technique for where to inject it (this varies from person to person). I ended up being more sensitive than I wanted for the electrolysis. She called me to check in, and asked how it went and I told her that I hadn't been numbed enough. She immediately reached out to my eletrolysist to get more information. The result was a new approach the next time I came in, with genuinely wonderful results! It is so rare to have a doctor who does this level of research, and is open to changing their practice in response!

Kayla is literally the sweetest, most thorough and thoughtful healthcare provider I've ever had. She listens and genuinely cares, and teaches you about what she is doing and why so you really understand. I was really scared after my surgery because I had a complication but she made me feel really safe and informed.

Kayla is one, if not the best, PA I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. She was incredibly helpful throughout the entirety of my pre and post surgery experience. She has an outstanding professional demeanor and is very effective at cultivating trust and rapport with patients. In short, Kayla is the definition of an amazing and well rounded allied health professional.
