I am not an easy grader, and I did not give the "5/Very Good" scores lightly. I have some high standards/quality experiences to compare them to and Jenny Hatch and her assistant Matt are the best I've experienced. Given the choice, I would not go anywhere else.

November 06, 2016

Jenny was great.

October 18, 2016

Jenny is awesome. Listened, and heard, my concerns. Answered my questions with straightforward answers. Explained things on my level and was very thorough in immediate and long term explanations of my condition. I felt she cared about me.

October 05, 2016

Have always been made to feel as though I was the "only" patient under care.

August 09, 2016

jenny made a follow up call a few days later to see how I was doing

July 29, 2016

Jenny Hatch is an excellent provider. She speaks clearly and directly regarding the medical conditions of the patient.

July 01, 2016

Could not have been better. Thank you.

July 01, 2016

Jenny Hatch provides excellent care. She is concerned, supportive and really takes the time to explain the condition, the medications, and the options for my health problem.

The survey speaks for Ms Hatch. She is compassionate, attentive, competent, and provides excellent, comprehensive care.

November 08, 2015

we love jenny she is the best.

November 03, 2015

Dr Hatch has always been kind, caring, and shows the utmost concern for my health and well being. She takes the time to answer any questions I or my spouse might have and provides pamphlets or additional information that might help me better understand my condition. The only concern I have is that due to insurance being difficult pre-approving a scheduled scan before my appointment with Doctor Hatch the scan was canceled before reviewing some lab results. The lab results were not viewed when they were immediately available and the scan was cancelled that had to be rescheduled after the results had been reviewed. If they had been viewed in the morning I might have been able to keep my appointment for the scan instead of canceling it and then rescheduling it for another day. But Dr Hatch was very apologetic and even went as far as calling me herself later to inform me that there would be no complications with insurance regarding the rescheduled appointment to get the scan.

November 01, 2015

I love Jenny. She's the best physician I have ever had

October 14, 2015

Jenny Hatch and her staff provide knowledge, experience, committment and compassion defying superlatives.

October 05, 2015

My experience with Jenny Hatch couldn't have been better.

October 03, 2015

We had a good discussion about my medications. I haven't been taking my vit.E and I don't know why which she reminded me why I am suppose to take them for my liver. I am back on them faithfully. She ordered a bone density scan which I plan to have done next week. She made me feel like I was top priority and she had all the time in the world for me. You don't get that feeling very often from providers in this day in age anymore. She is a very impressive lady and we really just clicked!

September 11, 2015

Simply could not say enough positive things.

September 01, 2015

Jenny Hatch treated me as a whole person meaning she took in and empathized with my other significant illnesses. She was very informative and I feel like I learned a lot from the visit. She was also frank about things I needed to work on. lastly she was kind and understanding.

August 27, 2015

Jenny took a lot of time to discuss treatment options and I felt as though she is truly vested in a positive outcome

May 08, 2015

I would like some feedback from the care provider on the results of a test taken the following day.

May 08, 2015

Please don't let Jenny leave there. She is a great asset to the hospital and the liver clinic. When she was on maternity leave I had a different PA. She was knowledge but she was not Jenny. My wife and I could not wait for Jenny to return.

Felt distant and left out with decisions on this visit.

September 21, 2014

I wish all my doctors were like your staff of people.

She has a great personality and good skills and knowledge in understanding your symptoms and interpreting them to you.

April 18, 2014
