dr. Reidhead went the extra mile making extra effort to get me the proper care. as a new patient, with aome difficult neurological problems, I had no current neurologist in the Spokane area and she made extra effort and located a neurologist who was willing to take on my care on short notice. I am incredibly grateful to her for her help this difficult time! The support staff in the office were all exceptionally helpful, and caring .

Dr. Heather Readhead and her team are some of the best professionals I have ever seen. I just moved back to Spokane after being gone for 17 yrs and needed a new doctor. I feel so lucky that Dr. Readhead was able to take me as a patient. Everyone in her office has treated me fabulous! They really care about my health and well being. I can not say enough about this clinic!

I feel like Dr. Readhead is very knowledgeable but that her knowledge is... rigid. It is very textbook and defined and maybe lacking flexibility or personalization by patient. Overall, she was reasonably attentive and instructive.

Seeing this particular Doctor for the first time I was happily impressed. She did not act hurried, took the time to answer all questions and gave helpful advice an information. Seemed very knowledgeable and up to date.

Dr. Readhead is a VERY good doctor. She seems to genuinely care about her patients and explains things to the patient in a good manner. Sometimes doctors do not explain in laymans terms, but this is NOT the case with Dr. Readhead. This was my first time seeing her and I am happy that she is now my primary.

it was our first visit and Dr. Readhead is very knowledgeable and kind but I feel like she strongly suggests you follow her advice over respecting the rights and wishes of the patient - that is why it's only a fair chance that I would recommend this facility to others

This Doctor was arrogant and extremely rude. I would not use her for a doctor ever again. I had a sinus infection and told her so and she brushed me off as if I was some sort of simpleton that did not have her knowledge. I was told after trying to get her to listen" that perhaps I should find another doctor that better suited my needs" and this is only after I questioned her about my symptoms and her analysis. I was insulted by her treatment of me and her flat out disregard for my feelings or my opinion. The clinic would do fell to listen to the patients that are treated by her as I am sure there are others that may have been treated with this type of disdain...and lack of compassion. Not a good pick for the clinic.

Wonderful experience. I moved to this office as I was unhappy with my previous PCP and I was so happy I did.
