Checking in was amazing. I got to write my information on a tablet which was quick and convenient and the people working in the office are so sweet. Unfortunately this doctor was not. I told her nurse my symptoms when she asked me why I came in and jot them all down. That was fine she was very nice. However when when the doctor was about to come in she half opened the door and I guess she was speaking to her nurse and said "I don't know this girl, I'm not treating her for that." Somewhere along those lines. I guess she thought I wouldn't be able to hear her. She sat down without any small talk to get to know me and didn't ask me too many questions and the explained that she didn't believe I was experiencing the symptoms I explained to the nurse in a very rude way. Without specifying the reason why I came in was because I had five different doctors tell me I needed a surgery and my insurance changed so I needed to find a new ENT that took my insurance to do it. She explained that she wasn't going to do the surgery, told me I didn't have the problem that five doctors told me I had and gave me medication for a problem that I know I don't have in all of five minutes. I traveled 30 miles for this appointment because no one else takes my insurance and I feel like I definitely wasted my time. She was really terrible for the short interaction I had with her. I felt foolish for even coming in and made me feel worse then any doctor I've ever been to in my entire life. I understand a doctor not wanting to do a surgery but she didn't have to make me feel stupid. I'm just shocked that I was dismissed so quickly. I'm going to another doctor tomorrow who will hopefully listen to me.

Dr. Wakefield is amazing. On a very busy day, she made a point to spend as much time with me as I needed, and answered all of my questions thoroughly and directly. She even went out of her way to explain a few things in more depth to reassure me and make sure I was fully informed about my own health. I really appreciate that. She is clearly a formidable person and medical professional with a lot of knowledge and experience, and I felt right away that I could trust her and that my health was in safe hands. Highly recommend!

I have seen this doctor twice for ear complications, I love the practice that she has and the technology she has in place making it easy to make an appointment, fill out paper work, all make for an easy and quick appointment. Wish other practices would employ this technology in their offices as they are stuck in the past! As for her patient, doctor relationship I have nothing but good things to say and she will be my doctor of preference going forward for ENT issues. Thank you Doc, and kudos to your use of technology!!

My appointment was scheduled for 9:00 am. I arrived at 8:50 am to complete paperwork and was finished by 9:00. Two patients arrived after me for 9:10 and 9:20 appointments. They were brought in to see the doctor before me, and at 9:25, I was still sitting in the waiting room. The front desk apologized for the assistant's mistake. I had to reschedule my appointment because I had to go to work. I returned at 1:00 pm the same day and was seen on time. Dr. Wakefield was great. She also apologized for what happened in the morning.
