this was a referral from my regular doctor to look at a lesion on my neck and to check it for cancer I felt that the two month wait for referral of this nature was way out of normal for something that could potentially become very serious in this amount of time.

My symptoms that generated this appointment were not present during the visit. I do believe that she gave me the best course of treatment for the condition she saw.

neither good nor bad; just not very impressive. I was referred to her about a split in the nails of my thumbs. She took a quick look at my fingers and said the ripples in my thumb nails were the cause of continual damage to my cuticles, and that the splits were somehow related to that damage. However, she could not explain why I have always had the ripples, but only just now had the splitting in those nails. Having no explanation for the reason of our visit, and not seeming interested in looking into it further, she suggested I may be irritating my cuticles in my sleep. However, it seems very unlikely that I have had such a life-long habit and not known about it. My impression is that she was simply stuck for an explanation.

I felt that, due to my age, an assumption was just made that I had 'Senile Purpura'. Even though I explained that the blood blisters on my chest came on without any 'bumping' [they're in the middle, upper part of the front of my chest]. When I stated that I bruised easily, the bruising stayed for a very long time, and that cuts were slow to heal, she ordered a platelet blood test. It came back abnormal. Her office phoned and told me that she wanted me to see a Hemotologist/Oncologist. That was about two weeks ago. [...]

This was my first visit with a Kadlec provider and staff. My whole experience was exceptionally pleasant; from check in with the receptionist, the assistance was so pleasant and professional. Dr. Kathleen Ledwick was phenomenal. She was courteous, explained my medical condition in full detail and made me feel like I was her most important patient of the day. At 58 years old I can say I have never enjoyed a doctors visit more than I did that visit. Kadlec is fortunate to have the receptionist, my doctors assistant and Dr. Ledweck on staff. I'm sure they are fortunate to be working for Kadlec as well. I was so impressed I made a doctors appointment for my Dad prior to leaving. Please give a big "THANK-YOU" to Dr. Ledwick and staff on my behalf.

I liked the doctor but I felt like she didn't look to closely at what I was there for. For a dermatologist I would've expected for them to use the big light for better view and take skin or scalp text. none of that was done. also she gave me a medication that isn't covered by insurance and said it was similar to the medicine my regular doctor gives me but with a steroid. so how is that possible?

I felt somewhat processed. I went to the appointment with a concern about skin cancer. The nurse did describe my actual conditions and did not dismiss my concerns, but the appointment was brief. I am hopeful that time saved on my visit was spent with patients who actually have concerning conditions.

Kathleen Ledwick expland any concerns that I had with my issues and provided recommendations.
