I did not like the experience. It seemed like a money business rather than patient care. I could only discuss 3 health problems and schedule another follow-up appointment to address remaining issues. Every single recommendation provided by doctor was address with a product or treatment - no lifestyle or diet changes were recommended. I would not recommend because I prefer doctors who take their time addressing my problems, ask questions to identify other causes of my problems or provide more holistic care.

I saw Dr Polder for the first time last week, and was very impressed. She listened well to my concerns and prescribed treatments that are already beginning to work. She has a kind and compassionate manner, and I was not made to feel uncomfortable about being uninsured. Her office staff are professional and pleasant also.

The doctor was attentive and professional. However, at check out the receptionist told me that "maybe" they would not accept my insurance. That was a big disappointment. I chose this facility based on the fact that they had listed my insurance company. Also, they should not wait until I saw the doctor to let me know.

My consult with Dr.Kristel was better than expected. She addressed all of my concerns above and beyond. I even walked away with samples to hold me over till I get my prescription. They also informed on rebates I get for my orders. Best of all they weren't product pushy. Going back in a few months.
