I was in severe pain due to a spinal issue. I would have liked my provider to have offered medication. The pain was severe that night after my appointment. The next day my daughter reminded me that I had taken a muscle spasm medication a few years ago which helped greatly. My daughter urged me to call the clinic back. The doctor on call ordered a refill for that same medication, which was VERY helpful. The pain is now very minor.

It was my annual exam. We discussed not doing a pelvic and didn't do one. My old ob/gyn was old school and did the whole nine yards. I forgot to ask what the recommended time periods are for a pelvic, etc. I did note when Ii read the print out that my next mammogram want suggested until 2018. That worried me as that's three years from my last one and i was always told to get then yearly. I have not contacted Dr. Smith with this question.

Dr. Smith is always very courteous, friendly & professional. She is the reason I began regular annual check-ups a few years ago after rarely seeing a doctor in the previous 60 years.

Dr. Smith is a wonderful, caring doctor. She has worked with me continually to improve my health, help me over the bad times, and still supporting me despite the odds. I feel she takes my health care issues seriously and follows up on them. I in turn feel more in charge of my health, and am never afraid to bring up concerns and or question her decisions, if I have any.

I have a disorder that isn't life threatening but has many unpleasant side effects as well as the potential to develop into serious health condition(s). I don't feel like she takes this condition serious enough nor is she thoughtful about how she treats the side effects & my potential for developing worse conditions.
