I have a hard time finding doctors that I feel like listen to me. Dr. Reese and her staff are incredibly nice. Everything was explained to me and Dr. Reese didn't have to read it off a screen. She obviously knowsher stuff. I have spent a long time trying to find a good PCM but I think I finally did. My treatment plan made sense and I am very grateful for finding her.

This was my first appointment. The nurse was fantastic, and did her part quickly. It took a while for the doctor to come in (35 minutes) but once she was there - she was very engaged, genuinely interested in my wellbeingand the whole health history. She is also up to date on the latest medical publishing and pointed out several improvements I can make (that other doctors never mentioned). Overall, I am glad I went, and believe she will stay my GP for a long time.

Dr Reese answered all my questions, and spent a great deal of time with me, rather than blowing off my symptoms and tossing me some useless prescriptions. She was thorough, phenomenally personable and knowledgeable, and asked numerous questionsmost doctors haven't cared to ask regarding symptoms. I'm so glad I switched doctors. Her nurse, Cindy was lovely as well, and my labs which were performed by her, were quick and painless. Even the front office staff was helpful and quick.

I do not recommend this doctor. Her competence is questionable and she is unnecessarily rude. She is not respectful to her staff, either-- she has openly chastised them on multiple occasions when I've been there and doesn't allow them to respondwhen they have tried to explain anything. Very strange and I suggest trying someone else if you have a choice.

I thought Dr Reese, was professional but not very interested in why I had the symptoms I did. I was spacey feeling for a week, started on a new med, told that what was initially diagnosed as high blood pressure wasn't.It was very confusing. She spent 10 minutes with me, told the nurse to flush my ear and never came back. I really was hoping for something more thorough since she was the 2nd Dr I had seen with these symptoms.

Dr. Reese spent more time with me than I expected. I really appreciated her attention. She asked lots of questions and addressed all of my concerns. There were some issues with the wait. It was about an hour before she sawme. Her medical assistant called in sick, and she had a temp who came in on short notice who didn't really know what she was doing . . . I had to show her how to put the sphygmomanometer on my arm properly. And the doctor had to show her how to use the optical oxygen/heart rate sensor. I'm hoping I just caught her on a bad day, though, because I really liked her, and her receptionist was very competent.

Horrible visit. I felt unimportant. I felt rushed and as if she didn't care about any of my concerns. This was my first time meeting her and my visit with her was less than 5 minutes - very rushed. The sadpart about that is she didn't have a single patient after me. There was no one waiting and still she didn't make time to talk to me about my health concerns. Instead she rushed out without answering my health questions and told the nurse to make another follow-up appointment. Also, when they do bloodwork, thre is only one nurse in the office to give you your results and you have to wait until she is available regardless of how many days it takes to get in contact with her. The nurse was nice but the doctor was rude. I will not be back.
