While I had to wait much longer than normal, it was because of extenuating circumstances with another patient that needed to see her immediately. It was not a problem for me. I appreciate the fact that she takes the time necessary to care for patients needs.

I felt that too much time was spent by the doctor talking about other cases, as well as looking up and writing information regarding my prior visits and results that I already knew about; I really needed to spend the time talking about more about my present and/or continuing issues that were new or had become worse.

Dr. Kresa-Reahl is professional and efficient. However, when I am with her I feel the pressure she is under to get me 'processed' and out so she can get to her next patient. I'm amazed at how well she handles it, but I don't believe she nor I should have to live with that kind of pressure.
