Guthrie Patient: February 2019
I was very impressed that the provider had reviewed my records before my appt!
Guthrie Patient: February 2019
Only good experience.
Guthrie Patient: February 2019
Doctors don't appear to desire to have patient to Doctor relationship. I understand that there time is precious, but I walk away feeling like I'm being hurried. Doctors and nurses at the Williamsport Hospital treat the patient asa person and take more time with me. Unfortunately Williamsport is too far away.

very good
Guthrie Patient: January 2019
She did an excellent job and was a pleasure to work with.
Guthrie Patient: January 2019
she seemed rushed the whole time we where talking and unconcerned with my health problems. She rushed out of the room as soon as it was over. I have never experienced such disrespect. It was a complete waste of a doctors visit.
Guthrie Patient: December 2018
Dr. Riggs was wonderful. She talked to me for a very long time about a health concern I did not want to talk about, but she made it feel like a very relaxed conversation. We went through all the possibilities of treatment, and she really wants me to have what is right for me. Definitely one of the best dr visits I have had in a very long time.
Guthrie Patient: November 2018
Not sure she totally understood my issue or concern.
Guthrie Patient: November 2018
Dr. Riggs is very patient. She uses exceptional 'whole body' listening skills, never interrupts or interjects, thoughtfully considers all things said, and is able to come up or down to my 'level' of understanding. She is courteous, pleasant, concerned, and engaging. I only wish that all providers could take an example from her behaviors.

thank You
