WOW, I have a new favorite doctor. This was my first office visit with Dr. Gefter. She is super thorough, also very personable. It is probably the most comprehensive exam I've ever had. She asked about physical health, mental/emotional health,work/life balance, total health (not just blood tests, lab work). Caution - I was not aware that her office was in the Erlanger hospital building, so parking is a headache and I needed to plan more time to get there, park, go up garage elevator, walk thru building, go up another elevator, etc. Also the appointment was much longer than I expected (2.5 hours total with lab work), which is great from a quality of care perspective, but not so great if you need to be somewhere afterwards (as I did). This is probably just because it was my first appointment there as a new patient. The nurse doing blood work could be a good bit more gentle. I've affectionately nicknamed her "the Jabber." She also put stretchy blue tape all the way around my arm instead of a bandaid?! Dr. Gefter is WONDERFUL!!!
