NP Susan was very busy but did not make me feel rushed. She was very helpful with my paperwork requests and I feel she is very professional and competent or I would see another medical group.

While she listed the meds she was prescribing, she didn't really discuss them. I asked because I am always concerned about possible Interactions with my xxx medication. She explained each medication carefully to alleviate my concerns.

My prescriptions were not called in the day of my visit. I had to call and request the prescription be called in the next day and even that took more work then necessary.
