Once I got to the doctor, I loved her. She listened and was respectful, polite, enthusiastic, sympathetic, confident, and eager to find the cause of my distress. I received multiple apologies for the extended wait to get in to the exam room.

I was extremely grateful for how wonderful the drs at this clinic are. It seems that you guys really cared about me as a patient and are really concerned about my well being. It’s rare to find drs that are concernedabout connecting with you on a personal level and they did just that. There wasn’t one bad attitude in the entire clinic and you can tell every employee enjoys what they do and they have a great leader.

In the room I had to wait 1hr before the doctor came in. I called the office and I was put on hold for over 20 minutes. Bad customer service by the receptionist. They called a prescription into the wrong Pharmacy.

I have been seeing Dr. Asamoah for almost a year now. She is very patient, a great listener, and expresses true empathy. Although the wait is often fairly long, I know she gives each patient her full attention and the timethey deserve. She is very knowledgeable and thoroughly explains everything. I have referred her in the past and will continue to do so.

When she came in to see me I could tell she was really rushed. It did not seem like she had taken been able to take the time to read the charts to remember why I was there but aswe talked she seemed to be able to recall what the issues were. She seems to be a very competent doctor to me (this was only my 2nd visit). When I came out of the exam room there were at least 10 people in the waiting room. How could she have that many appointments if each one takes 30 minutes or even 15. I think she is way way too busy and needs to get a 2nd or even a 3rd doctor in that office with her. Being busy like that is good. That means she is a good doctor and lots of people want to see her. But if she is too busy to take time to really do her job then she has gone beyond the mark of bed side manner.

My visit with Dr. Asamoah was excellent. The purpose of the visit was a followup to a procedure done in the hospital. She has the lab results, explained what they meant, and then we developed a plan for continued care basedon the lab results. I was very satisfied with the manner in which she presented the information and the results of the visit. I would recommend her without reservation.

This is was first appointment with Dr Asamoah. The office staff was very nice. They were very accommodating and patient with me. Dr. Asamoah was very nice and I did not feel rushed during my appointment. She listened to everything Ihad to say and I felt relaxed with her. I will be having some test to determine what is going on but I feel confident she can help me. I waited about 30 mins before I actually saw her but after my experience with her it is understandable. I felt like she heard me and I really appreciated that very much. It takes a little time to listen to a patients concerns.

I went to see the Dr. Asamoah. After waiting for a while, she came to see me and asked me what I was there for. She forgot she would do a surgical procedure for me. Then she told me she wasnot prepared to do it, as she only does it in the morning. Then she sent me away and charged me a huge amount.
