Due to what happened with the Triage nurse I was having some serious trust issues but she mostly talked me through it. It a complicated situation but I think she genuinely wants to help me get better, maybe just not sure at the moment how to do so.

Dr. Kober is fantastic in individualizing care based on the person's health and family health history, and their ongoing needs. She is caring, concerned and very knowledgeable and skilled as a provider. When she gives referrals, as at this appointment to a nutritionist, she focuses on the special needs that that particular specialist will offer her patient. [...] She has a great memory for family history, and my own health needs, which really improves the care that she delivers. And, she is clearly a kind person who cares about my, and other patients, needs. She meets the person where they are at, and helps them improve their health, while considering their attitudes about medicine and health. She is a fabulous provider.

Only hesitation in recommending my provider to others is the occasional disorganization of the office system itself, which can result in delays in scheduling or hearing back about test results, etc. Doctor Kober herself, and her nurse, are wonderful.

I was interested in hearing multiple options for treatment of the conditions I came in with. I felt that the visit rushed and when I offered one treatment option (cervical issue), it was immediately accepted and no other avenues offered.
