05/29/2019
Lisa is a great provider and it very professional. Not everyone would agree with me but I think its helps providers connect with patients more if they take a few moments to just chat and get to know their patients at every visit. By developing a repoire it will cause patients to return to providers more often than they would otherwise. I got the impression her time was short and couldn't take any longer than the 5 minutes she took with me.

frustrating to be given medicines and procedures instead of addressing root cause of health issues when I've asked repeatedly.

I recently switched providers from [...] to Kadlec and was reluctant to make the switch because of the hassle. I am so happy with my choice in not only switching to Kadlec but to use the midwifery program. I cannot imagine going through the rest of my pregnancy any other way and it is exactly what I wanted for my family.

She makes me feel comfortable and calms me down when I am anxious about the pregnancy. She is very knowledgeable and keeps me updated on things to expect in the near future. I am very happy with this clinic.

Conservative in nature, however ensure to talk to the patient before jumping straight to a pelvic exam as that was not something willing to consent to and was not necessary based on the conversation we had.
80

03/05/2019
I really enjoyed Lisa and her student at my visit. They were both very nice and professional. I was and still am disappointed that my request was disregarded. the MA asked if it was ok for student to come in with Lisa, due to my history of abnormal pap's and procedures I had in the past, I wanted Lisa to be the only provider with me. A few minutes after MA left the student PA came into the room and started my appointment. I didn't want to be rude and ask her to leave as I feel that the MA should have told them of my request.
