Dr. Rodgers immediately puts one at ease. She interacts on a personal level. It is so wonderful to spend so much time in a conversation about my health and any concerns I have. I have never had a physician who engaged in a discussion versus dictating statements about my health.

The only complaint I've ever had for Dr. Rodgers is that it's sometimes hard to get in to see her. That seems to be a bit better now. Dr. Rodgers is one of the only doctors who understands my sensitivity to medications and treats me accordingly.

my experience is always good, however I have a diagnosis that physicians know very little about and don't spend much time learning about it or staying abreast of current practices. there are no specialists for this condition in the northwest and I have to rely on my PCP to help me, but I know more about the disease than my doctor. she did educate herself early on, and I trust her...but it would be helpful if you could develope a couple of physicians who could become more knowledgeable regarding this condition.
