June 25, 2014

#7 I understand English very well, thank you and my provider doesn't use strictly medical terminology in talking to me.

June 25, 2014

Question # 10 I don't give recommendations unless specifically asked, which has hardly ever happened. What works for me may not be what someone else needs.

May 30, 2014

Dr. Stoesser is always so nice and thorough. She researches to answer any questions, especially about medications that other doctors have prescribed. She never rushes you or hurries, and is always willing to discuss things with you.

May 30, 2014

Excellent experience with the physician. I would love to go to her again and have her be our main physician since we are new at the clinic.

May 26, 2014

Dr Stoesser is the most caring, thorough, helpful doctor! I appreciate everything about her medical skills and her bedside manner. She is an excellent doctor!

May 23, 2014

Focus was on list of symptoms without adequate synthesis of the symptoms/medications. Do not feel that issue was addressed.

May 15, 2014

The nurse was informative about the vaccinations effects & very gentle & caring.

May 06, 2014

recommended to coworkers who have now scheduled visits.

February 13, 2014

I remember how nice everyone was but I don't remember what we talked about

February 06, 2014

The nurse provided valuable information about a new blood pressure medication that i had started using even though i had not asked for this specifically. It was good to learn of the signs i should be watching out for when using the medicine.

January 04, 2014

I think my doctor is the very best and I appreciate how thorough, smart, caring, patient and helpful she is. She is always willing to go the extra mile for me and my family

December 22, 2013

would have liked more time. Felt kind of rushed.

December 11, 2013

Dr. Stoesser is obviously very smart and an excellent doctor. She explains things thoroughly without making the patient feel like they're being spoken down to. I may have to spend some time waiting for her to come in for my appointment, but it is well worth it to see her.

October 05, 2013

Dr. Stoesser is one of the best.

October 01, 2013

I was happy

October 01, 2013

I thought I had a great doctor in Dr. McClellen and told all my friends and family that I wouldn't see anyone else since I liked her so much. But I needed to see someone quickly and unexpectedly, and this visit was also amazing. I'm starting to think that this clinic has no bad doctors.

September 02, 2013

Very good experience

July 16, 2013

Dr. Stoesser was very, very nice and welcoming. She was very thorough in the visit and I have complete confidence in her. I only wish she didn't seem so rushed at times.

July 12, 2013

Dr Stoesser is a knowledgeable, caring, thorough, excellent doctor.

July 01, 2013

Dr. Stoesser is an amazing clinician. She remembered my family and circumstances and asked about my family's growth. She listened to my issues and provided some great feedback - she related to my situation. She encouraged me to set goals and helped me do so - goals that were specific and had a time component for completion. She provided great resources for me to take advantage of (website for tracking weight loss and nutrition, nutritionist information, Well U program) and scheduled a follow up to ensure I was on track.

June 24, 2013

Friendly and professional

June 03, 2013

I always have a great experience at this clinic and I would most definitely recommend it to others.

She makes going to a doctor enjoyable

May 16, 2013

Dr. Stoesser was very friendly and listened carefully to my concerns. I am happy and relieved to have found such a good physician.

May 01, 2013

She seemed very knowledgeable about diabetes and I went away feeling like we were conquering it together. It was worth the $220 bill.

April 26, 2013

Dr. Stoesser is an amazing physician. I would recommend her to anyone. She is very professional and she cares a lot about her patients.

April 19, 2013

My care provider (and his attending) were not able to give me a definitive diagnoses, but that's okay because they ran different labs to try and figure it out.

March 18, 2013

I am very happy with Dr. Stoesser as my doctor, she is very thorough and always answers all my questions.

March 11, 2013

I couldnt be happier with my doctor

March 08, 2013

I feel she is the best docor there

February 13, 2013

Dr stoeser was very kind and thorough, as always. The intern was very kind very careful.

February 13, 2013

She was excellent even in her call back to us about the results of xray

February 08, 2013

Like I said before, I was late, but she still made time for me. I also had some questions about my pregnancy tests and insurance coverage and she made sure to help me.

January 14, 2013

We enjoy seeing Dr Stoesser

January 01, 2013

I'd choose her as my Primary Case Physician if that were an option.

December 22, 2012

Im very grateful for Dr. Stoesser

November 28, 2012

Dr Stoesser was great as always!

November 27, 2012

i was quite happy

November 26, 2012

The doctor is watching my health indicators very carefully. I particularly like the My Chart communication. It gives me a chance to review what we discussed, because sometimes I don't retain it all.

November 12, 2012

Only negative concerning this provider is difficulty in scheduling appointment times that work with my schedule

October 27, 2012

i liked the doctor very postive feelings

October 22, 2012

This was the first time I had seen Dr Stoesser, she was great!

October 15, 2012

I like her but it's incredibly difficult to get in with her. It's always at least two weeks between the time I make the call and the actual appointment.

October 15, 2012

very helpful exam and help in planning future care

October 04, 2012

Dr. Stoesser called in another attending when the lesion turned out to be deeper and different from what she had anticipated. I appreciated her getting a second opinion.

September 04, 2012

Dr Stoesser is a great doctor and I am so glad that I have been able to be seen by her. She is very knowledgable and very friendly

August 20, 2012

Dr. Stoesser is always so thorough and will research and follow thru on medications, treatment, etc.

August 07, 2012

The doctors at this clinic seem to be very hard working and sometimes overly busy. It would be nice to have a more relaxed conversation, but I realize there are other patients waiting.

June 30, 2012

She was obviously running late, so everything felt rushed

June 13, 2012

I feel sooo comfortable with her, and she doesn't make me feel like I'm rushed.

May 04, 2012

Seemed like a very good doc

March 21, 2012

Pretty good

March 10, 2012

I would recommend Dr. Stoesser to any of my friends. She's very friendly and explains my care very well.

March 09, 2012

Dr Stoesser is the best. I do not know her assistants name, but she is very good. Doctor said I have neuropathy, and while the cause hasn't been diagnosed yet, the pill she put me on has been very effective at managing the symptoms. At least I'm sleeping better even if they don't the cause yet.

March 08, 2012

Great experience.... From the from desk all the way trough my whole appointment. I was VERY nervous about my procedure & My doctor was so patient & understanding. He even let me turn in my headphones so I would be distracted from my colposcopy & would get my mind off how scared I was. Both Dr. & assistant, Holly, were amazing. They offered me juice afterwards & made sure I understood everything that was going on. I've never had a doctor I stayed with for years but I am completely confident in this one :)

March 03, 2012

At the end of, what I am sure must have been a very long week, Dr. Stoesser showed kindness, concern and professionalism. She is a great doctor!

January 28, 2012

No problems were experienced. I appreciated that the staff was able to make an appointment on the same day I called.

January 09, 2012

they give me written info about the whole visit so i dont have to worry that i will forget .
