Caroline spent the majority of the time typing on the computer and not hearing what I had to say based on my past experiences with the same issue. She seemed to have her mind made up on what I needed to do rather than understanding that I do know what works and doesn't work for me when it comes to sinus infections, my body and clearing them up.

Caroline Dudley was AMAZING. I recently moved to the area and am new to this clinic. This was my first visit here. It was the BEST medical appointment I've ever experienced in my life. Each person I interacted with was kind and caring. Caroline was professional and competent, and didn't seem rushed or distracted like so many other providers I've seen in my life. She listened carefully, and then responded in a way that showed me she understood my struggle. She demonstrated real care for me and compassion for my situation. And she spoke about potential medical help for me in a way that I could understand. Also, Caroline did a fantastic job of reassuring me that she and the rest of the medical team would be here for me in the future, beyond just this one appointment. She proactively scheduled a follow-up appointment so we could revisit the plan and make sure it's working for me. I've never had a provider do that before. I walked out of there just amazed and hopeful that I could find wellness. I felt totally supported. THANK YOU, CAROLINE!

This service provider is one of the best I have ever had. The other, is the physician under which this service provider is a P.A. (I definitely wanted and recommended her to my husband, who's own Dr. retired. Thank goodness, he also has this new physician now.)

Dr. [...] is my regular doctor, she recommended Ms Dudley, and took the time to introduce her to me. I am blind [...], therefore it is important to me that I trust, and respect the providers I deal with. If I feel they are not listening, giving me good advice, explaining options, I have no problem letting them know how I feel. Dr [...] is aware of these issues and makes every effort to see I am comfortable with who she advises me to see, introducing me to them if at all possible. Because of the efforts on my behalf, I am confident, comfortable and ALWAYS pleased with the service I get at the Doctors office.
