Jennifer Krahn is always very attentive, very helpful, and always respectful. I see her more often than my PCP because Jennifer is more available because of her schedule. I prefer to see Jennifer Krahn than partner doctors of the group, or my PCP dr. [...].

She was fantastic! She took the time to engage me in conversation regarding my health issue by looking me in the eye and listening to me. I felt she did a thorough examination even giving me pointers on what I could do at home to quicken my recovery time and be more comfortable. I really appreciated the print out she gave me at the end that reviewed all we talked about. It was like having a family member there with you to remember what was discussed and all the valuable instructions.

Very pleased with services provided by provider. Only saw her once. She ordered blood tests, but that was for follow up visit next year so there was no need to call me with results yet. She was very well informed about my situation.

My visit was as a new patient so very hard to give accurate answers. I still have some unresolved issues which I hope to address on next visit. At least I am finally moving in the right direction on most things. However, when trying to call to leave message earlier this week I was on hold 20 minutes! This is great concern and may make me look again for new primary care.
