Fast and efficient check in and short wait (somewhere between right away and 15 mins. Friendly and proficient nurse to getme set up and short wait for Dr Paulsel. He took time to ask questions, listened to my answers and asked follow up questions as necessary. I didn't feel rushed or not cared about. He's straight forward which I liked and personably too (to the extent you can be for our first visit together). He checked all the things I'd expect too.

Dr. Paulsel was great! But the administrative staff at the front desk is the worst. I received a call from the front desk the day before my appointment confirming my appointment and asking if I could come in early 8:45 instead of 9:00. I agreed. The morning of the appointment I received a text from them saying to come to the appointment at 9:00. I arrived and the front desk worker was rude and scolded me for not making my 8:45 appointment....... yes I am confused as well. Real quality people you have working the desk there.

Dr. Paulsel saw me at the appointment time, his nurse had already taken blood and my vitals before that. He was thorough in questioning my current health and medications, but understanding rather than challenging.

Dr. Paulsel is best described as thorough. He took his time in establishing me as a new patient and we through my history very well. He also seems like taking a holistic approach and didnt rush to fill me up with medication. Rather, he suggested we try lifestyle changes first and use meds as a second option.

I showed up early for my appointment, and the nurse got the "preliminaries" (vital signs; blood draw, etc.) done right away. Dr. P was a few minutes after the appointment time, but well within expectations. As usual, Dr. P addressed my concerns and suggestions compassionately and authoritatively, deferring to my wishes whenever practical.

This was my first visit to Dr. Paulsel. I chose him because my insurance changed, once again. I think he is through, experienced, asks pertinent questions, and knows what he is doing. He didn't seem to be in a rush, but covered a lot of ground. I plan on staying with him.
