Dr. Loughney paid attention in all details aí had to share, and believe me, there were a lot. She explained me everything and asked for additional exams. What I liked most was when she in person returned me with the lab results. This is unique and I really appreciate that.

Dr Loughney spent more time with me than any other physician I’ve seen in the area. When I told her I wasn’t good with giving blood, she stayed with me the entire time and did her best to keep me distracted. Overall, a good experience and would recommend her to others.

I was a patience of Dr. Loughneys a few years ago and when she left i was devastated. I was so happy to see her back in my network I could've cried. Dr. Loughney listens, she communicates in a way that lets me know she understands and that she wants whats best for me and my health. She is very attentive and makes you feel like you are the only thing that matters during your appointment time with her. She is definitely God send. Thank you so much for being such an awesome dr.

I had such a good experience at Dr. Loughney's office. I did have to wait almost 30 minutes to be seen, but everyone from the doctor to her medical assistant to the phlebotomist made me feel comfortable and well taken care of. Dr. Loughney was thorough and personable. Would definitely visit her again.

This was my first appointment with Dr. Loughney. She was very attentive, took notes while I talked, addressed all my questions thoroughly, and really seemed to listen. She actually spent all the time necessary for a thorough appointment (as opposed to most doctors that limit their visits to 10-15 min) and did not seem in a rush. She seemed very knowledgeable and trustworthy.

This was one of the best drs I have ever seen. In the age of shuffling patients out the door as fast as possible, I was examined in the office for about an hour. Dr Loughney was able to answer questions that no other dr had been able to answer and was very thorough in her analysis and examination.

I thought Dr. Loughney was fantastic. Really personable and very caring. She was running a bit late and her receptionist came out to let me know and gave me a choice to wait or reschedule. In the end she was only slightly later than my schedules time.

I have seen her twice and both times she was exceptional. She seems to really care about her patients and takes the time to listen to everything that's going on. I wish they accepted my insurance but she does not advise her patients to take unnecessary tests.

She was great and so attentive. Everything was really efficient since blood work could be done in the office. I was paying out of pocket because she was not in network for my insurance, and she was cognizant of that and tried to limit the tests done to what was necessary so that I wasn’t hit with a huge bill. Definitely will go back.

I got there a couple of minutes late and they took me back so fast I filled out paperwork after the appointment. Dr. Loughney was amazing - both competent and confident, but also warm and easy to talk to. She's going to monitor my thyroid throughout pregnancy and I couldn't be happier to have her on my team.
