I went to the walk-in Clinic, as my Doctor was not in. So I expected the wait to belonger, and it was. But not unreasonably so. But the fact I had never met this Doctor before, I still feel she was quite attentive, and gave good care. Thank you

He was okay, but she did not know... know me. I had not gone to her before and my situation was difficult. So she was fine. It's just that she didn't know my problem. So I have no negative about her at all. My doctor was out.

I really liked Maria Lao, but I feel that we are always hurried to do that half hour Time period And as my doctor, I want to have time to talk things through with her.

Excellent visit - first time meeting with this provider and felt listened to and she wanted to partner with me in my journey instead of condemning me

I feel like Dr. Lao is really tackling my health issues head on. When I made the appointment with her, I was able to get in the next day which is a huge thing for me. I had called to schedule with Dr. Posthuma and the next office visit he had available was a month out. I feel like now we're going to get to the bottom of things and work on them to prevent chronic conditions from occurring.
