I appreciate the referral to another provider. However the My Chart note told me that I had [...] without any further explanation and no phone call. Of course, to read this was alarming and so some follow up call or further explanation would have been appreciated. Overall though, this provider is excellent and tries hard to be thoughtful and thorough.

Dr. Summers seems very efficient, but still listens to me. Even if I don't display typical symptoms (i.e. - when I had blood clot) she ordered the test - not all drs. listen to people like this.

12/01/2015
Dr. Summers has always listened to what I have to say and provided good advice and medical care. I am involved in medical work myself and know how stressful it can be, but she is always respectful and does not make me feel that she is rushed. I have always had a good experience with Dr. Summers and I cannot say that about all of the physicians that I have seen.
