Dr. Eardley responded to main reason I was in to see her. My sheet I had just filled out in the waiting room did not have all three issues I wanted to talk to her about. I brought up the 2nd issue, which she promptly addressed. However, I forgot the 3rd issue & did not see her review the sheet I filled out. Can't see a need for this sheet before going in to see the dr.

This was a follow-up appointment after my visit to the ER [...] I saw Dr. Eardley, and she was very helpful.

Things moved along efficiently. Once my ear condition was diagnosed by Dr. Eardley she had an assistant come in and remove the wax build-up which only took a few minutes and was not painful at all.

08/28/2016
I came in for a pregnancy test and ask for guidance, as well as get started with the clinic as a new patient. I felt like this doctor didn't listen to my concerns, was in a hurry to move on , and was generally unhelpful. she seemed like she wanted to be anywhere else but there and it made me question her judgement and dedication to the point that I will not see her again.

she needs to see beyond what someone looks like in the outside.

08/09/2016
She was very efficient and knowledgeable. While the time went fast, I did not feel rushed. Dr. Eardley took care of what I needed prioritized and helped set me up for the rest with referrals and directions. She also reiterated my "homework" instructions at the end of the appointment. I am very happy with her and all of her reviews were great.

08/08/2016
Not terribly warm and welcoming on this meet and greet appointment, however, provider took it upon herself to obtain records from [...] about questions I had concerning past test results. This really impressed me. I think this doctor is going to work out well for me. I am frustrated however that there seems to be no easy way for me to get my medical records sent to Providence except for 'paper records,' which means someone will have to input them all into your system. Why not accept digital records? And why is it so difficult with getting records from [...]

the questionaire you fill out when you arrive about your concerns for the day is somewhat off putting when it suggests you may not be able to cover all areas and might have to schedule another appointment. It makes you feel like the schedule is more important than your health.

Dianne Eardley, M.D. has been my PCP for many years, and is responsive when needed. She is thorough, knowledgeable, and follows through well. She goes out of her way when there might be a crisis - for example, when I was dx. with breast cancer, she called me herself to give me the information and her guidance. I also have a number of specialist physicians, and each is so specialized that the care sometimes feels fragmented. E.G. I have bone issues, chronic pain etc. - and no one quite connects all the pieces smoothly. Dr. E assumes this role where she can, but sometimes the issues are too specialized. [...]

My appointment was scheduled for 10:00. I arrived at 9:40 and walked right up to the registration window that was available. The clerk seemed to take longer than usual signing me in. When she finished, I sat in the waiting area about 30 minutes before being called in by Dr. Eardley's nurse. As she was weighing and measuring me, she commented that we would need to hurry. I then said "I see you're running behind today." and her comment to me was "No,you are late. Your appointment was at 10:00." I am always punctual and when I explained to her that I had checked in at about 9:40 and had been in the waiting area for at least 30 minutes, she was obviously frustrated with the registration desk as they had not informed Dr. Eardley's office that I was there. I asked her to explain to Dr. Eardley that I had arrived on time which she did. My actual time with Dr. Eardley was great as usual.

I have been a patient of Dr. Eardley's for years and she is the absolute BEST! She is knowledgeable, thoughtful, kind and I trust her implicitly!
