I saw Dr. Stewart for an annual physical and I loved her nurse and her dog! However, my visit with Dr. Stewart herself was less fantastic. She is super sweet and very friendly, however she is very forgetful. I was askedthe same questions multiple times, and every time she did not realize she had already asked me and heard the same answer. She also checked my ears, eyes, and throat twice. It just did not seem like she was in the right state of mind to be providing medical care. Any issue I brought up (headaches, GI issues, attention issues), rather than providing medicinal advice she told me exercising would fix the issue. I will definitely continue looking for a PCP.

Dr Stewart and all staff were great. Professional yet relaxed and welcoming. The care was excellent. I felt that they really care about each individual patient. I was in the office a long time, as they paid attention to all details.Maybe not ideal if you are in a hurry.

She was wonderful! She makes a point of ensuring that she addresses any issue that you might have. Unfortunately, I was mostly there for a required physical but if anyone is looking for a physician who is willing to take thetime to address any concerns you might have, Dr. Stewart is a wonderful place to start!

Barbara was kind until she asked a question regarding my sexual orientation. She's lucky I didn't file malpractice for the way she handled the rest of our appointment.

Overall I thought the Doctor was wonderful, experienced and knowledgeable. My overall experience was not good. If you are in a rush, this may not be the right place for you. I came to the doctor on my lunch break. Iwas seen right away, but I opted to be seen with a medical student first. This is a mistake if you are pressed for time. 45 minutes of my appointment was getting information they could have gotten from my previous doctor. I don't think this is the right fit for me, since I do not have a lot of time. That being said, I really liked the doctor, I personally cannot spend 1.5 hours to get a physical exam.

I waited in the exam room for over 45 minutes after already having my appointment rescheduled because she was running late on the day I was originally supposed to have the appointment. The assistant took my vitals incorrectly and that doctorhad to re-do them in order to get accurate readings. I was supposed to go in for a check-up and I was there for over 2 hours.
