Guthrie Patient: January 2019
Carla, the NP, is excellent. She listens to me and gives me full attention.
Guthrie Patient: January 2019
NP Akerelrea is an outstanding cardiological nurse, and I do appreciate her attention. I have learnt that her peers at Guthrie have a high regard for her diligence and thoroughness andis much admired by them. She is very gracious when treating me, and I have her as my first defense for my heart problems. She is my back up for Dr. Patrick Tchou, from the Cleveland Clinic. Up to now, they have agreed on everything in my treatment. If my confidence in her as provider is only Fair, it is because Dr Tchou is who I am relying on -- not because NP Akerelrea has given me any bad advice. I don't give VG mark unless it is exceedingly outstanding.
Guthrie Patient: December 2018
Carla always takes the time necessary to be sure I understand. Her visits are very thorough.
Guthrie Patient: November 2018
all good
Guthrie Patient: October 2018
I wa a given a bunch of literature regarding high BP - this occasion was the first time my Bp has never been high- it was not even discussed in our appointment- I read about it when I got home! I think this should have been discussed along with everything else.
Guthrie Patient: October 2018
Good.
Guthrie Patient: September 2018
