Lisa Garcia was great. I am hoping to use the midwife program and see her through the remainder of my pregnancy. I received excellent care.

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.

Lisa is always so good to answer all of my questions, and to see if I have any more. She does a great job at not only letting me know what is needed, but why it is needed as well. She gives her patients very personal and kind and knowledgeable care. I recommend her whenever I get the chance. I can't say enough good things about her! She delivered my other son, and made the delivery experience so personal and incredible.

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.

Every visit that I have had at this clinic have been very good. The receptionists are kind and helpful. I always feel welcomed when I come into the waiting room. Lisa Garcia is a great provider. 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.

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.

Lisa Garcia was accompanied by a student nurse practitioner named [...]. I strongly recommend hiring [...] once she completes her schooling.

Both Lisa and [...] were very knowledgeable and understanding regarding the emotional and physical affects of menopause.
