Guthrie Patient: December 2018
in rush because of being behind scheduleI feel provider does not know me
Guthrie Patient: November 2018
Dr. Mols is one of my best providers. I very much like coming to see her, she does not give off negative vibes if things are not perfect. She is support, a good coach. I have told many people about how good she is. I am not hesitant to keep my appointments even if my diabetes behaviors have not been good. She is a wonderful doctor and person!!!!! Do not ever let her go.
Guthrie Patient: November 2018
I feel Dr. Mols is very knowledgeable and knows her job...I have difficulty understanding her because of her language/accent...that is not her fault, it is my problem. I am thankful she is figuring out why I feel so horrible at my young age.
Guthrie Patient: October 2018
Dr. Mols is very good and very personable with patients.
Guthrie Patient: October 2018
Dr. Mols is an extremely kind, thorough and knowledgeable doctor. Would highly recommend her. - Have a lot of confidence in her.
Guthrie Patient: October 2018
I felt Dr. Mols is an excellent doctor who is very thorough, a good listener, and caring towards her patients.
Guthrie Patient: October 2018
I was upset about the length of time I had to wait to be called back...for a 10:20 am appointment..it was AFTER 11am the staff were Friendly & Kind...However Dr didn't get in room until 11:30 ish, she was CLEARLY not 'prepared' for my appointment...had my records in a pile she sat down shuffling through them for about 5 minutes (mumbling she didn't have time for this & she had 2 other pts waiting) So I stopped her by gently putting my hand on the papers & then just explained 'why' I was there ....for her 'Expertise' & Opinion she did answer a few important questions I had but I'm really not sure yet how I feel about this appointment She ordered blood work & said she would decide on a plan from that...Currently I'm awaiting results ....She was kind but rather 'disorganized' which I thought was not ok since I waited MONTHS to see her I expected her to have been better versed on my 'health issues' This was CLEARLY NOT THE CASE @ all....So I am not quite sure how I feel about it....Confused, Hurt, & disappointed...not sure if I will continue my care here yet ...
Guthrie Patient: September 2018
She was very knowledgeable about my situation and full of answers.
Guthrie Patient: September 2018
She is one of the smartest and most caring practitioners combined I have ever had.
Guthrie Patient: September 2018
she was amazing I went in very confused by the way my situation was dealt with by physicians in the past and Dr.Mols really went through my history and current tests with me and explain to me how we would be moving forward to gather more information to understand what was going on. She listened to my concerned and made sure of my feelings about the way we will proceed. I really appreciate how she did not take the easy quick way out but truly trying to get all the information she needs to make a proper diagnosis.
