This was my first time seeing Brooke and I really liked her. I would want to see her again.

Brooke Taylor has been seeing me for year and I just love her! It makes me forget I am having an annual when we got to visiting.

my car broke down in the parking lot and I had my two small children with me. The doctor insisted on accompanying me with another member of her staff, to assist me with my car. it was an incredibly kind and generous gesture!

the last appointment felt rushed

It'd be nice if the time I was told to arrive before my appointment was more reflective of the time I needed to be there. My letter said show up 30 minutes before the appointment when in actuality I spent 28 minutes doing nothing in the lobby because they didn't need me there that early.

she didn't know anything about me or read my medical records and didn't do the same test previous drs did the last two years

I saw Brook because my regular nurse practitioner is out on medical leave. I was disappointed and a little anxious at not being able to connect with my regular NP but was so pleasantly surprised with my visit with Brooke, she had good comments & suggestions for current care/meds and when I spoke w/her about another main health concern she really listened with acknowledgement she understood and also recommended another Rheumatologist. I was very pleased with her care and glad it turned out.

I didn't see my nurse practitioner until 4:15 and my appointment was at 3:30. Additionally the nurse came in right before I was to see the NP and told me to drink glucose to do a blood draw an hour later without asking if that worked with my schedule. It just felt like they were behind and something got lost in translation. That being said everyone as always was so helpful and kind. I love the service you provide.

provider was very impersonal and seemed disconnected from appt. walked in room without reviewing my medical record, did not even know that I had called after hour helpline two days prior and was still having symptoms. did not spend even 10 minutes in the room. when I tried to bring up the helpline call it was passed over as if I was talking to a wall. already had my avs printed prior to me coming in the room, showing whatever I was going to say in the appt was useless. quickly ran through need for pediatrician and classes (less than 2 minutes) and didn't take time to discuss options or importance of classes. would not see this provider again.

Dr. Taylor managed to be a great blend of efficient and caring. She listened carefully to my questions and concerns and provided helpful information and referrals. I appreciated her attitude.

I would say the most disappointing part of my visit was my PAP came up abnormal and instead of talking to my provider I spoke to the MA which I understand is usual protocol. But I found the approach of the MA lacking empathy and was using medical terms way above my understanding. I wish news of having have to have a biopsy for possible cancerous cells was delivered by someone who could simplify the information and have empathy.

Brooke is so nice, listens well. Feel well taken care of.

Very good overall experience. I'm glad to be under such good care.

The Nurse Practitioner Brooke Taylor, was an excellent service provider. It took some time for us to warm up to her and she to us, but we now have a warm relationship. She asked to see our baby, when he comes out and that was a very thoughtful gesture of genuine care and interest she displayed. We/I am very pleased with her and the relationship we shared with her as our nurse practitioner.

Attentive & a good provider. Takes time to explain things.

wait for preventive appt is too long

The medical professional was very polite and respectful. would've liked to talk more in depth.

Very patient, addressed all concerns, clearly explained possible health issues. Recommended proper follow up.

Brooke Taylor is familiar with my medical history and remembers prior visits, which is helpful to continued care.

this was my first prenatal appointment. my blood test result and pap results came on after more than a week and no staff from the providers office followed up on the results. nurse practitioner did not give time to ask her questions. I hope my future appointments will be much better at this office.

Waited over a half hour from my set appointment in the room and she did not have, or seemed to not have, my current medical history.

Love Brooke - She's a trusted advisor. Great health care provider!!

excellent rapport!

Brooke studied my file very carefully before our visit. she is very knowledgeable about my history and my needs. I feel she is kind, warm and easily approachable. I will always visit her for future needs.

Great care and interaction

My provider is professional I sent me for tests immediately.

She was lovely. She did not use judgment about my lifestyle. She was very knowledgable in her field.
