My provider always answers my questions. I feel I can talk to her about any thing. If she can't answer it, she will find out and let me know.

I was surprised how nice and professional the building looked. The doc listened to me, and I feel we had a good conversation about what I need to ask and what she needed to tell me. She had read my records ahead of the appointment so that she was up to date on my medical issues.

Dr Budesa listens to my concerns but does not try to lecture me, respecting that I'm old enough to know my own mind.

I came in for a Medicare check-up. It was not clear ahead of time that this visit was only to check my vitals and look at tests that I might need. THe paperwork before the visit was not clear on this. Dr. Budesa took time to answer questions but had to change it to an office visit.

Dr. Budesa is the best doctor I've ever had and I would quite literally be devastated if she ever left.

The times that Dr. Budesa couldn't see me right at appointment time were because patients before me took up extra time due to health concerns. Sometimes I've taken up extra appoint time due to my health concerns.

We seem to struggle with right questions to ask. I've been after an updated MRI on my back. That's my primary complaint. For years now. I feel she doesn't always listen to me. & I hav to suggest a plan

She was prompt, efficient and knowledgeable, but came across as slightly abrupt. I mean very slightly. More like she was anxious to get to the next patient. Not enough that I would hold it against her and if I needed to see her again, I'd be perfectly ok with it.

I trust my provider completely. She is thorough and willing to take whatever time with me is necessary. I use my health and I am always pleased about the speedy reply to any questions or concerns I voice. I feel like the office staff is competent and does their job.. just think they could be a little friendlier.

I forgot to ask about bone density test I took a few months ago. Still dont know results. I do not know how to access the online help line. This is a source of frustration. I got mail paper work on my mammogram but not bone density info.

After blood tests came back, I emailed MyHealth and directed my questions to Dr Budesa, wanted to have her explain two tests that had high numbers, a nurse followed up on a call back that day and said she would tell Dr Budesa I had some questions, and I would hear back the next day. No answer from Dr Budesa and it's been 5 days. Does she not do follow up calls when a patient has questions? I'm Disappointed.

I always appreciate Dr. Budesa's advice and reassurance should I have something of concern to discuss with her. She is highly respectful, knowledgeable and professional, fundamental qualities for a caregiver.

Dr. Budesa is always very attentive to what I have to say or my concerns. She is professional and understands my needs and medical history.The receptionist that assisted me that day was a bit unfriendly and doesn't even know the name of the nurse that was going to assist me. She probably was not in a good mood that early morning.
