Guthrie Patient: March 2019
she took the time to listen to me and explained her thoughts on what was going on. I did not feel rushed even with the very intense schedule they were having that day.

Leigh Ann is an excellent provider and I would like to be able to see her again. The team of her and her nurse is phenomenal. They work very well together. Very efficient and speedy but not at the cost of rushing the patients.

Rather than providing instruction for me to follow, the care provider used a commanding approach and tone of voice. It wasn't necessary as I agreeing with her throughout the appointment.
Guthrie Patient: February 2019
My rapid strep was negative but I had all the symptoms of Strep and three family members with confirmed strep. This provider initially indicated to me that she believed I had a tonsil stone. I got my tonsils out when I was 16 and she ended up looking back in my mouth. She told me that because my rapid was negative that they are highly accurate tests (which I know they are not) and did not want to prescribe me an antibiotic. I am fully understanding that we are a society that is over-medicated, but I am not someone who seeks out medical attention unless needed, and I believe that having the option of having an antibiotic when I have every sign and symptom of strep, is best practice. Additionally, she informed that the test would take 24 hours to complete and she would personally call me with the results. I called the following day, in the afternoon, and was informed the strep culture takes from 48-72 hours and they were unsure why the provider told me otherwise. I made the decision to begin the antibiotic as I was miserable. On the 3rd day, I ended up calling back to determine my results. I was positive for Strep. I had been taking the antibiotic for 3 days at this point, and was not feeling better. I asked if I was prescribed the right medication and was told I would receive a call back, and did not. Then I had to take more time to come in and see my PCP. This was a significant waste of my time. Communication is essential and should be a priority. I also believe that any provider who is going to diagnose me, should be able to recognize that I don't have tonsils in my throat, before telling me that I have a problem that could only happen with having tonsils in my throat. This instantly made me not trust her ability to care for me in an effective manner. Thank you
