my appointment was scheduled for 0940. waited a bit for MA to take me back to room. Then waited til 1035 to see provider. I feel at this time of the day the provider should not be that far behind I am an easy patient . maybe took 10 minutes of her time suggestion: you have notes on patient charts if they are "easy" and schedule them accordingly. and the "talkers" can be scheduled normal simple fix to a problem that no one can seem to fix.

I talked with my provider about an incident that happened on the phone when I called because I ran out of my blood pressure medicine and the girl on the phone wouldn't listen and she just kept telling me they have 48 hrs to respond. Which didn't help my situation for needed medicine. I told my provider about this and apologized and told me that should have never happen and she was very sincere.

Since I started seeing Mary Beth Swihart she has gotten on the ball and done more for me then my previous provider in the last 3 years that has retired.

I am happy with my initial visit as well as for my wife who has had several appointments with Mary who was quick to follow up with us on tests and imaging.
 

03/19/2019
After the nurse checked my vitals, I waited 50 minutes for the provider to come in. when she came in and I told her that I had to leave for work in a few minutes, she said I needed to reschedule and that she was doing me a favor! I took the 7am appointment so that I wouldn't have to get a sub for my students, not realizing that I would wIt nearly an hour. I can't get a sub in a few minutes notice, but apparently teaching isn't important like the provider, since she is just doing me a favor . So my health issue and blood pressure were not addressed at all. Reluctant to reschedule. Would rather see someone who values my health and doesn't feel like they are doing me a favor.

it was my first appointment, as i am seeking a new PCP. Mary was thorough, confident and ordered many lab tests partly by my asking. i thought there would be cholesterol panel also, but ill address it next. Mary refereed me to 3 other facilities feeling confident they were my best source for treatment. I appreciate this. i feel we will get along fine.

I was looking for a provider so this was my first visit. She faced me, talked, & listened respectfully. I never felt rushed, but I knew she was spending a lot of time with me. I appreciate her attentiveness & thorough explanations. I emailed through the KChart access for further clarification & got her reply which was also (non-emergency) very thorough. It was done in a timely manner. [...]

Mary Swihart spent an hour with me, but never made me feel like she was rushing me. She seemed genuinely concerned about listening to my medical issues and trying to help resolve them. She truly listened to what I had to say, which is the first time this has ever happened with a physician. Most Doctors usually think they know better than the patient, not accepting the fact that one knows their own body better than anyone.

She misread my chart. My allergies are pollens, dust, lawn mildew, ect. She thought I had dust mites in my mattress and mildew on my walls (very demeaning toward me). She was wrong. I was too shocked to respond.
