I was looking for a new PCP and wasn't real sure about a woman since all my previous docs were men. I can honestly state that Timberly is a very, very pleasant surprise. She listened carefully to my comments regarding my health. She asked good questions that prompted information I had forgotten or did not consider. All my concerns about "gender" went out the window. Although she is a 'newbie', I was impressed by her credentials and her patience with me. I walked into the appointment apprehensive about finding a "good" PCP and left with a smile on my face knowing I had found a gem.
Reyna, the nurse who worked with me, was wonderful. Very, very friendly and attentive. I would expect her to be exceptional with patients who have worrisome symptoms.
