I told them that I had strep throat. It came back negative and she claimed I had a virus even though I had no nasal runny nose. I told her I did not believe it was viral. They did not send off for a strep culture and I had to spend $200 of my own money for this visit and then turn around and spend another $200 to be checked out by express care who did send in my culture and in fact I did have a strep throat. I had to be miserable for a week because she would not give me an anabiotic even though I knew I had it

07/22/2019
I use to hate seeing the doctor because I felt ignored or that my issues were not important to him. I only went if I really had to. When he left I ended up seeing Serena Williams and she made me feel more relaxed and not like a stupid idiot the way I'd felt before. She did a blood test and discovered my thyroid issue (that previously was never checked even though I complained of being tired all the time) and she also saw that my A/C was a little high working with her I am now doing much better and see her every six months to check on my numbers.
100

07/21/2019
My ARNP is very knowledgeable. She explains the treatment for my health problems and clarifies why and how the treatment will work. She gives good advice and helps me to avoid worries or anxieties related to my diagnosis.

She has been pivotal in me reaching my weightloss goals. I am half way to my goal and that is because Serena has been meeting with me and encouraging me to make incremental changes that are do-able. I love her and wholeheartedly recommend her as a provider!

07/14/2019
Simply put, I have no plans on seeing another provider.
100

07/02/2019
The only thing I recommend is that it would be nice to know if a provider is behind. I made an appt before work and luckily I gave myself plenty if time but the appointment started at the time that it was actually supposed to be over.

04/23/2019
My care provider is fantastic and always listens to me and my concerns and that is why I will continue to come back. However, I've had bad interactions with almost everyone else on the staff there. I've had trouble getting a clear answer from nurses about when I could schedule an appointment and accusing me of refusing to be seen. The front desk doesn't seem to care about wait times. The medical assistant I saw was less than friendly with me and didn't really seem like she cared about my health. And lastly the person who drew my blood after my appointment didn't say a word to me, just took my blood and sent me off. The wait time was really bad, I saw my provider for about 15-20 minutes (which is acceptable) but I was in the office for an hour and 15 minutes waiting for one thing or another. The wait time here needs to be cut down and customer service should be enforced with all the staff, not just the care providers.
80

04/18/2019
she is very attentive to my questions and medical needs. Serena has a great relationship with her patients and she is willing to look for answers when she doesn't have the answers. overall I am really happy with my care except she is difficult to get in to see!

I have had a reoccurring situation with shingles in which I have gone to the doctor's office to address. During the 3-4 (approx) visits to the doctor's office, Serena has always been very thorough with the inspection of the effected area and has always explained everything very well regarding a path forward to resolve the issue.
100

04/09/2019
ARNP Williams is very attentive and very thorough. She has provided supports above and beyond medicine such as doing my living will and providing supports to do it. She is thoughtful of my medical history and supportive of my physical health and emotional well-being. She has helped with saving my life when she conferenced with an infectious disease doctor & she advised that I go to the hospital to get treatment for sepsis in 2015.

11/14/2018
I absolutely love Serena--she has been my primary care doctor for at least three or four years now. If there is a health problem that arises, Serena gets me in as soon as she can, and she is genuinely concerned for my health and well-being. She always speaks to me with respect and talks to me like a human being, not like I'm some child that needs to be chastised. I can't say enough good things about Serena, she's had my back for awhile and I am so appreciative of her excellent care.
