She spent a good amount of time with me, answered all of my questions and made sure I understood what was going on, anytime I have used MyHealth to email her questions she has gotten back to me within 24 hours. She was also very prompt in getting my test results to me. She is kind and very caring.

I have had nothing but the best care with Shanelle O'Dell. It's when she is not there and Dr. [...] or [...] try to follow up, and are not in tune with my health, because I see Shanelle for everything, I feel more comfortable with her and she knows alot about me and my health. I think it starts at the front end when I call, and the health secretaries have to message the providers. What I tell them on the phone sometimes is not correct because of all the back and forth messaging. If one person can follow up with the message instead of 2-3 dofferent health secretaries, then the accurate patient information will get to the correct person.

Health care is a balance of humanity and science. The more tests and machines are used in the examination process the less humanity is involved. This health care provider (O'dell) adds depth to the side of humanity. She listens well and communicates with me. She is my personal connection to this program. I'm happy to have her as my provider.

Shanelle O'Dell is a very patient, and caring provider. Willing to listen to your questions and concerns. Most important she is willing to have me part of the discussion on a plan for my health care regarding my type 2 diabetes and work that plan, even if it includes alternative medicine. I respect that more than you know.
