25 min wait, but understandable, providers are very busy. When it was my turn to be seen I felt the doctor gave me her complete time and attention. All my questions were answered and followed up planned for my medical needs. It was an excellent visit. All medical and office staff were professional, courteous, and seemed very competent.

Even though I waited more than 15 minutes for my appt, I was informed that there was an unexpected hold-up, and that the MD would be with me as soon as possible, which I believe she was.The reason my prescription med was not discussed in the last 3 months is because there was no need for me to contact the health care team in the last 3 months.

Was hesitant to come in, because my issue seemed insignificant, but Dr Root asked many questions and never minimized my concerns. This is the kind of healthcare women need--to be listened to, treated with caring and respect, and validated. Thank you!

Dr Root was extremely attentive and very compassionate. She knew my symptoms and she knew what I had and explained in detail how to take care of myself when I got home. It was viral so there was no prescription to be given. She printed everything out and explained it to me one by one. I felt very at ease with her.

Dr. Root has been my doctor for the past 10 years. I couldn't be more pleased and grateful for her knowledge, expertise and kindness. She is meticulous, thorough and very patient. This is actually the first time I have made an appointment for anything other than a routine visit. I was definitely concerned and uncomfortable. Dr. Root addressed all my concerns, came up with a plan and arranged for follow-up. I left feeling better and, as ever, delighted that she Is in charge of my medical care.

Dr. Root, her assistants and the office staff offer excellent service - caring and informative. I was a little concerned she didn't follow up on my having a bone density test. If I had a worse memory (which will likely happen) I might not have brought it up at a follow-up, virtual meeting we had.

My experience with this office has always been excellent and even better in the last couple of years. Wait time to get from the waiting room to see doctor and time spent waiting in her operatory have both been greatly reduced. I feel the scheduling is much more realistic. Dr. Root always makes time to hear all I have to say and she's answers everything thoughtfully. If she doesn't know the answer she and says she will find out. She always makes sure I know what is expected for me to do and the portal has all the info before I get home. Everyone in the office always seems to be at ease, respectful and friendly. Why do I like and respect her so much? She is kind, warm, compassionate, caring and VERY smart. My husband didn't know why I went across town to see a dr and one time needed to come with me to one of my appointments. When we left, he said I see why you want to continue with Dr. Root and you definitely should.

I was granted a slot for a cancellation, which I greatly appreciated. Unfortunately, the PA let it be known the cancelled appointment should not have been filled. That was not information which should have been shared. And more importantly, Dr. Root is not an easy person to get an appointment with, but she is the best, so worth any wait, so if there is an unexpected cancellation, the PA should not be irritated about the appointment being filled. That being said, everyone has a bad day, so I do measure her care based on one unfortunate experience.
