Katy is professional, knowledgeable, approachable, responsive.

good provider

I really like Nurse Stropnicky and Dr. [...] as well. I see both of them, depending on their availability. They are both very personable, great bedside manner.

Good experience, no improvements needed

MA- [...] was very kind and caring. Provider Katy not only saw me for my appt reason but also for some other concerns that had just happened. I did not feel rushed or ignired. She addressed all my concerns even though I knew we had a shorter appt time. I definitely appreciate the care that I received!

I had an acute illness. I called to speak with an advice nurse and was transferred to Katie. She was awesome. She pulled up my chart and asked lots of questions. She listened to my answers and arranged for me to be seen that afternoon. She examined me & ordered tests. She reassured me. I am better now, but I sure appreciate all that she did for me.

Katy was great and listened to my concerns!

always a good experience

Everything was great

It was my impression that this provider didn't know how to address my High Blood Pressure in consideration of my other health issues. It seemed that this provider did not believe the correct functioning of my home blood pressure machine because my blood pressure records were so high. [...]

Very personal care. Took time to investigate medical history to provide excellent care.

Katy was outstanding. She was extremely friendly and knowledgeable and empathetic. She smiled, was very expressive, super friendly, had an upbeat "can-do" attitude. She's much better than all the doctors I've ever seen at the clinic. She's very down to earth. I liked her a lot. I haven't met anyone else in traditional medicine as warm and friendly as her. [...]

my provider was thorough with determining what was wrong with me. answered all of my questions and was respectful and sincere with her answers and treatment

Katie RN was very thorough and treated me with the respect and kindness I do not usually receive from my MD. I would highly recommend her to my family and friends.

Very good visit with the provider (Katy). She was informative and was able to answer all my questions.

she was able to diffuse my stress, and bring a calmness to an otherwise difficult appointment well done!

I usually see Dr. [...], who is also great, and Katy takes wonderful care of me when I can't get in with Dr. Gluck. Also took my toddler to Dr. [...] recently because he was the only one available, and really liked him as well.

Katy is so kind and helpful. She works very hard to help my infected [...] even working me in to see earlier than my appt time. I can't thank her enough.

Katy was awesome. She listened and provided great advice. The care I received was great. [...]

Pleasant and caring and knowledgeable and complete

Very caring - thorough - explained things very well.

Katy was extremely informative and also very warm and friendly.

I would have preferred to see the PCP I have been seeing for the last 7 years, but the nurse did quite well.

Provider is good [...]

provider is awesome. very caring and willing to work with the patient.
