      Most of the specific tests wouldn't work on the instrument because my hands and body were too cold to register : oxygen level ,temperature, , blood pressure etc. She identified the problem quickly and waited until oI warmed up

      Ginny took her time and answered my every question. She inquired about my health concerns, and pain level. She was not rushed and even brought in her student to listen to my A-fib heartbeat to educate and train her charge. Friendly, warm, and so professional.

      Kudos to the medical student Hunter! He took his time, kept asking if I had any other concerns and even asked me what I wanted to do about a particular topic. When Dr Gottschalk came in he had clearly accurately briefed her, they had read some other visit notes, and we were able to talk through the issues pretty quickly and move to next steps. Dr. Gottschalk was great as always and the quick follow up on MyChart after labs was fantastic!

      Doctor Gottschalk is excellent and I trust her more than I trust Ukhc to retain her. Had much excellent care from PAs and MDs alike, but Ukhc wears them down.

      I was having a seriously bad day which basically blocked Dr. Gottschalk from connecting with me. She's an outstanding physician! I was causing the communication difficulty.
