Dr. Summers holds a 2-way conversation with me. She listens and uses language I can understand. She stays on top of my bloodwork and reminds me of routine care I need to schedule with specialists. Over the many years that she has been my primary doctor, she has earned my trust as someone who is competent, is invested in the quality of my health and will advocate for me when necessary. She has a pleasant demeanor, and I feel I can tell her anything that may bear on my needs. She's the best.

I had just been to the ER the night before my appt. definitely had some concerns about what was going on and this ws not even addressed. When I asked about a certain supplement got a rather flip answer. Felt like I was a "bother" rather than an valued patient. It took almost 12 days to get my blood work results. Was not a positive experience. Felt like my concerns were not at all important or addressed, I have been going here for a long time, referred several friends and family in the past but my past several visits have felt like I was not "heard" .
