I've had Dr. Paul as my primary doctor for years and really like her. She tells me "like it is" and understands my good points and bad and I can talk to her about anything.

Dr Paul and staff were prompt, efficient, courteous and answered all my questions. they did a great job

I love MyChart as a communication tool. I appreciate being able to see the information and ask questions. Answers come promptly. Thanks for great service

Dr. Lisa Paul always takes the time to listen to my concerns and does not hesitate to refer me to a specialist if needed.

always feel taken care of

Dr Paul is nice. I saw her for a foot issue. I was surprised that she didn't comment on my recent colonoscopy. It was my first one and she had made the referral. My colonoscopy went well, no problems, I just feel it might have been nice had she said something at all. She was focused on the reason I came in and did not ask how I was in general or if I had any other problems. I had filled out a form that listed a couple of other issues but I don't think she even read the form. She is perfectly nice but I don't feel like she has the time to form a relationship.

I LOVE My Chart!! I love having ready access to my records & test results and, In particular, I love using the message system.

I am so happy with my care provider. I am so comfortable with her. She is easy to talk to and she always responds to my questions. I like to communicate via email and she answers me right away.

Dr. Paul is the best. I never want a different dr.

An additional order for test on bloodwork already was ordered but I have yet to hear from My Chart about the results.

Provider seems aloof, as if seeing patients is an interruption.

I've been seeing Dr. Paul for a long time and love her care and compassion. She is always very thorough.

I always receive the time I need to talk or discuss my health problems with Dr Paul. She always listens to what my concerns are and asks me questions if she needs more information. I trust her judgement in my helth care.

We had a good visit. She was excited that I am on weight loss and encouraged me to keep going. My vitals were showing that I am looking good except my cholesterol. Her and I will be working on that.

She's taking time to listening to patient

Dr. Paul has been my doctor for about 18 years. The reason they I have stayed with her for so long, is because I really feel that she listens to me, and that my health care is a team effort between she and I.

Dr. Paul takes very good care of me. Very thorough, thoughtful, kind, and professional! Easy to talk with, she listens and offers great advise. Really attends to preventive care, is honest and straight forward. I trust her decisions and directions.

Overall good experience. [...]

Lisa Paul is a very nice person, who remembered me from my last visits. She is easy to talk to, and her knowledge base is very evident. I am glad to have her as my doctor.

[...] Although she was not blatantly unprofessional, I cannot describe her demeanor as professional. I was treated like my presence was an imposition. [...] Her approach and diagnosis seemed to be purely a quick fix to a problem.

[...] Lisa Paul is the worst doctor I have ever encountered. She has nearly zero people skills. [...]

I received minor surgery on removal of a cyst on my [...]. It was a time consuming procedure because of the nature of the cyst and she did a wonderful job. She was often seeing if I was comfortable and if I had questions.

This provider had the list of my health concerns that I presented when I made the appointment. Rather than going down that list, she kept asking "is there anything else?". I thought we were done, then I remembered something, and she challenged me, saying "That's why I kept asking if there was something else." This is wrong - the provider should try to cover everything listed as patient concerns, and THEN ask if there is something else. [...] I was not satisfied or happy. I'll have to address my concern at another time, with another provider, as I did not get an satisfying response this time. [...] Not a good patient experience [...].

Dr Paul does an excellent job

As this was the first time seeing this Doctor for a specific issue and I did not have expectations. She completed the needed examination and did so professionally and kindly.

I felt very rushed...even tho my concerned did get addressed.

Dr Paul has been my medical care provider for many years. She is always responsive to my health needs and questions. She fully explains the type of treatment I may need in a clear and concise manner, that I fully understand when I leave her office. Her follow up to my treatment needs, other physician referrals, and prescription refill requests could not be better. She is a very caring and attentive, as well as, understanding physician. I am fortunate to have her as my medical health provider.

I've never had a bad experience. I always enjoy my visits to Dr. Paul--it feels like coming back to see a good friend!
