caring provider

My health care provider, Thaina C. Moravia is one of two of the best medical persons I hve ever had. She is always one-on-one and lessons to my questions regarding any question I may ask. I am 75 years old and am now experiencing "changes" tomy physical life style. Her medical staff, including the front desk are supportive regarding forwarding my quesitons to her nurse(s). Both nurses and office personal forward my questions to her and she replys back to them with two days, or sooner if needed. I am so very fortunate to hve both medical insurance and a medical care provider as Thaina C. Moravia

Thaina was delightful. She spent time and I felt an almost immediate report. I am happy I switched to the senior clinic.

This senior clinic is exceptionally friendly, courteous and very helpful. All of the stay is fantastic. Thaina is very knowledgeable and if she does not know something goes the extra mile to find out.

[...] Tania and staff are great. It's my favorite clinic.

It's all good; she knows her stuff real good --- feel lucky to have her

Thaina Moravia is the BEST primary doctor I have ever had and I have full faith in her to do what is best for me. I have referred at least 1 other person to her that has a scheduled appointment.

This appointment was to establish care with Thaina Moravia at Kennewick Senior Clinic as my previous primary care physician had moved out to the area. This visited seemed to establish a good relationship with this provider. She was responsive to my concerns and made me feel good about this change.

I found Thaina Moravia most attentive and helpful to my good health care.

This office has been the most difficult that I have dealt with [...]

I like her. Problem with clinic in general getting routine prescriptions in adequate quantities.

Thaina was very understanding. She listened and provided helpful treatment options for my issues.

I needed to see someone who could issue my prescriptions. It took so long to get in I was without my diabetes meds for a week, that was taken care of immediately. My previous dr. closed his office.

The visit was to discuss my persistent cold-like symptoms. Upon examination, she diagnosed a sinus infection, prescribed a z-pack antibiotic, and within 48 hours the symptoms I been experiencing for the previous three weeks were gone.

Excellent service as always

On time, took time to explain everything. Called back to go over blood work that she ordered.

I could not be more pleased and have recommended her to several.

Thaina is an excellent health care provider

Thaina showed great interest in my health and answered all questions. She is excellent.

Thaina is the best provider! I always leave the office feeling cared for, listened to and knowing the plan of action for my health.

in general, i am very pleased with our doctor.

Time waited before I saw dr. was almost an hour pass my appointment time.

I text on my K-chart. She answered or called quickly.

it went well, anxiety meds still waiting for though. got the lorazepam still waiting for other meds for anxiety ?

All my experience. I feel comfortable with my provider Thaina C. Moravia, I feel that I can trust her with any issues, health care concerns, feeling conversations what ever it may be the situation will be handed to her best ability. I trust she will and is taking very good care of my health.

Thaina Morovia is the BEST primary doctor I have ever had!!! She listens to me, understands my fears and is very compassionate and always wants the best for me. In times (like now) when good doctors are hard to come by, she is a diamond in the ruff! I wish I had seen her 15 yrs ago! I recommend her to anyone who is looking for a good doctor. Older people especially have a hard time finding a doctor who really listens and works WITH you! We (my husband is also a patient) as long as we possibly can!


Dr. is very thorough and very good, like her lots!

It is very difficult to get in to see Ms. Moravia. I had to see other care providers twice since my first visit.

Thaina is wonderful we are blessed to have her.

We were very frustrated with this appt. It was an establish patient visit and although the provider did fine during the appt., we had NO contact after. She sent my mom to [...] to get blood work. When we got the results I noticed that there were several issues; high blood sugar, UTI and ecoli. Eventually, we did get an antibiotic and she took it. I emailed the provider with questions but did not get a response. [...]

Easy to talk to, informative, answered my questions, aware of my past medical history through my K-chart

I have really appreciated having Thania as my primary care giver. I value her as a friend and trust her suggestions. she treats me with respect and values my input. sorry to be moving to Portland. told her I would love to take her with me.

Thaina is a wonderful person and doctor. This was our first visit with her and we are looking forward to discussing results of upcoming blood tests. WE ARE VERY HAPPY WITH HER!

Excellent provider and staff...

I just do not get a response to my phone calls in a timely manner.

Thaina is the best!!!

1.This is an excellent provider and office. The gliches I have experienced are: 1. unable to schedule visit within a time that was given by provider(and this was for a change in dose of medication in a timed manner to allow starting new med, and a referal to out-of-town specialist), 2. does not have a smooth follow-through for calls, did not get return calls, calls did not get to provider. this was a new, and increasingly getting worse medical issue (that would not or could not effectively be taken care of at an urgent care setting). [...]

very courteous, very knowledgeable and helped me to get the ongoing care I need.

It went very well. This was our initial visit to establish her as our new provider. Thaina was our choice to replace Dr. [...] who left the practice.

This is new provider for me and I was very happy to have found her.

She is always so kind and gentle, I have referred several friends and family members to her

this was my first visit with Thiana, and I was favorably impressed by her preparation, knowledge and willingness to help.

She is a new provider for me [...]. She seems caring & thorough, very knowledgeable and personable.

this was the first visit to this office and I was very happy with everything that happened and have no problems with the care given

The only complaint I have is the long wait to get into the examining room and the very long wait from the time the assistant completed her portion until we got to see Thaina.

She was real good and I liked her a lot.

I really liked her. She was thorough and complete.

[...] the only thing that I have found to be frustrating is being able to contact the doctor and get a timely response. I have to leave a message with the receptionist who then passes it on to someone else who then is supposed to get the attention of the doctor and then call me back. I have found I am the one who has to call back repeatedly until I finally get an answer. Sometimes this can take days. [...] This after care communication is seriously lacking. I do not feel that the protocol of the office for contacting the doctor and getting a prompt answer is working. It places the burden on me to chase them down and also can jeopardize my father's health. [...]

she was very pleasant. It was my initial time with her as my previous provider is not practicing any more. She was very thourogh and I felt very comfortable talking with her. I will definitely continue to see her.

[...] this doctor was a bit distracted, and very overworked. Visit was a bit impersonal, but not her fault. She didn't yet have my records.


had to wait too long in the exam room.
