    I am very sensitive to side effects with medications. I know which medicines have the fewest side effects for me and that was ignored in this visit.

      Primary purpose of my visit was to establish a primary care physician, since my Dr. Mary Meek retired from Ky Clinic So. Since I also retired, I was informed I could no longer be seen there. I didn't feel as tho Dr. Voogt gave me an opportunity to build rapport, but rather looked to her Resident (Amanda) to administer answers and proposed care. Residents leave. I'm not happy with the way this went. I will be contacting UHC/Medicare to meet yet another potential primary care physician going forward.

      The doctor listened to the APRN about what I had told her, the doctor could have done what she did with me over the phone or in the parking lot.

      Loved that she listened to my concerns, addressing each one individually and giving solutions or plans of action available at this time to handle the problem. Awesome job.

      Most of the time was spent with a medical student. The doctor didn't even look down my throat.

      For once I finally saw a provider who listened to my concerns and did not simply push them off as nothing or simply say it was due to my weight or mental health. She showed interest in my concerns and was compassionate when I visibly showed how the results of MRI worried me in a personal level. She did not dismiss my worries as other have but reassured me that we would rule out all possible diagnosis to help find the correct treatment for my health concerns. She treated me as a human- not just another chart.
