appointment was unnecessary, I recieved lab results via mykchart. I was told by receptionist Dr insisted follow up before any further future Levothyroxin could be prescribed. this is medicine needed for rest of my life, made to feel I HAD to make appointment for results I already had 8 days earlier. 95% of entire appointment spent asking me questions to update my medical records, I have already answered EVERY time I have seen her before (STILL not updated) as well as trying to get me to update unwanted vaccines. $196 I had to save up for, for appointment, that I did not have to waste, on this insisted office visit.

100

04/16/2019
we usually use email to correspond not phone. Kadlec does not allow more then 15 minutes for appointments. we seniors need more time as we don't do well when rushed. doctors never use to be this hurried. to get this appointment I had to call at 7:30 AM and not always able to do so. it took three different days to get this appointment. very bad system.
100

We always talk about expectations and progress, very helpful.

100

04/01/2019
Dr Charron is great, and so is the whole team! The day I was there, the front desk staff had to deal with an irrationally angry patient who just wanted to be mad and yell at people, and the staff handled her with patience and dignity. I've been behind a front desk often enough to know it's not easy to keep your cool, and the staff member stayed calm and polite the whole time

03/30/2019
love the provider [...]
100

03/27/2019
Dr. Carro. shows concern over her patient me. She made several referral of health concerns I have. she was also concern over my mental status but I am find. I appreciate the time she gives me during my visit.
100

03/19/2019
It took months to get in now I have trouble because this doctor only works part time which is very hard on my schedule
30

03/19/2019
This was a follow up from a visit to urgent care for chest pains. the cardiologist who called me recommended I get another ekg. Dr. Charon did not do an ekg and instead told me it was likely anxiety. I felt like she automatically assumed that because my grandmother passed a month ago the chest pain I was feeling was due to anxiety or stress and didn't take it very seriously. Unless there is an emergency, I will not be returning to this practice.
100

03/19/2019
Dr. Charron gave needed advise and a plan to go forward if symptoms reoccur.

02/28/2019
Dr. Charron is always concerned and knows what to do.
100

02/26/2019
I appreciate how Dr. Charron takes the time to speak with me and not to or at me. She listens and hears what I have to say, not just as a courtesy but as it actually matters to her. I had not seen her since May 2018 and yet she made sure to ask me about things we spoke of then and anything since, not just what I was in for at the time. She makes it comfortable to visit with her so there I did not have to feel nervous or worried that I would not be cared for properly.

100

02/05/2019
Dr. Charron always listens to my concerns and she reads up on my health care before she comes into the room. She knows that I am getting shots with Dr. [...] for my hip pain and cares and ask about it. This time she only needed to see me for a renewal of my prescription and a blood test.
80

02/03/2019
Dr. Charrons' questions were were well thought out (she was prepared) and treatment recommendations seemed to be "on target" and well considered. Her staff, receptionist and nurses were clear and professional.

01/16/2019
always very receptive to what I have to say. Gives different options and explains.
40

01/14/2019
waited 40 or so minutes---wanted to rush out--did not access records/asked me "I will if you want me to"...talked down to me---what a waste of [...] time. Perhaps has the potential to be a good Dr - but this was definitely not a good impression.
100

01/02/2019
Dr. Charron is a great doctor. Knowledgeable and caring. I recommended Dr Charron to my elderly neighbor and have attended her dr appoints with Dr. Charron as well. Dr. Charron is incredibly tender with her and, even on issues she can't resolve, she explains what's happening and made suggestions for things my neighbor can do to help. Can't say enough good things about Dr. Charron.
