Most of my visit were good experience with my care provider. However, there were a few time that he would quickly asked a few questions, highlight some of my e blood results, & we would shake hands and both leave within 30 minutes of my visit(s). He seem a bit in a hurry & had other things in his mind; but, I never felt that I needed anything more medical information regarding my health during those short period of visits. If I did needed additional information, he would stop talking, listen, & make recommendations.

The only bad experience has been with the receptionist. She is technically competent, but lacks warmth or empathy with clients. I have gotten this impression more than once. Everyone else seems to be both competent and empathetic.

Dr Vogt is an excellent physician and provides caring and very competent care. [...] There is invariably a lengthy wait before phone calls are answered. [...] Recently I have experienced a rather challenging prescription refill issue requiring extra efforts to persuade my insurer to cover a medication not on its formulary. Dr Vogt has responded effectively but support staff efforts might have been better coordinated in seeing things through. In fairness, I have otherwise found support staff to be supportive and professional,

Dr. Vogt has excellent bedside manner: he is professional, listens carefully and empathically, allows the time needed to answer all questions and answers thoroughly. If he is uncertain of something he says so and is willing to help find the information. He is conservative re. tests and treatments, that is, he recommends those he feels are needed but explains why it's best not to pursuie those that will be of no help addressing the problems. He works as a partner in my health care. He tells me what he thinks and what he recommends and, when possible, offers choices, presenting the pros & cons of each. I am grateful that he is my primary care provider.
