Dr. Raffinan is is a great primary care doctor. I went in for my annual physical expecting what I usually get—more time with the nurse than the doctor, focus on the lab results over everything else, and a throw-away "How have you been feeling?" Instead, Dr. Raffinan really took the time to go through each aspect of my physical and mental health. I didn't feel rushed (it helps that he never seems to be running behind In his schedule, so I'm always seen exactly on time). He was also very good at leading the discussion and drawing out answers from me, rather than assuming I could info-dump my entire year's health in one sentence. Another nice detail was that the majority of the time I got to keep my clothes on, and I only had to switch to the silly gown at the end for the actual physical exam. So I wasn't distracted by the self-consciousness of wearing a paper potato sack. Sometimes doctors are great for certain people or populations, but not for others. As a mid- to late-twenties queer white female with mental health issues, I felt comfortable with Dr. Raffinan. I never felt judged or looked down on. As for the support staff, the receptionists seemed a little distracted, but it was the end of the day before a holiday, and they were overall very nice. The nurse was polite, if a little less overtly friendly. I didn't mind, though, since she was very respectful when I admitted I have issues with needles. She immediately asked if I wanted to lie down and helped me position so that she could draw from my left arm (beds are always set up to draw from your right). And she didn't try to "distract me" by chatting, which I find more anxiety provoking than silence. The one downside to my visit was that the office doesn't have a private restroom—they share with the other tenants of the floor—so you have to walk down the entire length of the building and through the office waiting room with your urine sample. However, all in all, this was probably the best annual physical I've ever experienced.
