January 21, 2015

the care was great in removing the stints - not much information provided after that

January 20, 2015

Excellent Doctor, called back right away with lab-results, and explained everything thoroughly and showed great concern.

December 22, 2014

I always look forward to visits with Craig Ensign because he is a competent, warm and caring provider, notwithstanding his many years of seeing patients.

December 19, 2014

very friendly and explained what he was going to do

December 17, 2014

We were supposed to discuss how much the stone had grown and if it had moved since my last CT, we were also supposed to discuss my surgical options with the added complication of my rotated kidneys and my history of a PE...we didn't. Everything felt rushed and I left knowing no more than when I went in.

December 08, 2014

PA always seems in hurry. Assistant PA and nurse did a very good job

November 29, 2014

I had a positive experience when seeing Craig Ensign. I wrote about my experience with him on an earlier page.

November 29, 2014

was a good experience

November 22, 2014

provider answered all questions in a plain and friendly manner.

November 17, 2014

The care provider was earnest and attentive to my needs.

November 12, 2014

I was very pleased with my visit.

November 07, 2014

we haven't seen the results of the medication as yet.

August 19, 2014

he made up for all of it. it was a quick appnt we got right to the crux of the issue, discussed things. he too seemed to be rushing but still very caring and was glad he was taking my issue so seriously when frankly after all the runaround with the meds (not his fault) i was ready to just give up. was still impressed with his thoroughness even with the time constraints they seemed to be under.

August 12, 2014

Craig is the best provider that I've ever had! I wish he were GP so I could see him as a PCP. He's so nice and caring, and I believe that he truly wishes to help his patients. I like that he gives me options about my healthcare treatment plan and tells me what he thinks is best, yet allows me to decide what the next step is. This is the best quality about Craig. He's also very enthusiastic every time I see him and looks happy to see me every time I've seen him. I would not want to go to anyone else, he is the best!

August 11, 2014

Did not feel like I was listened to. Feel as though an irrelevant prescription was pushed on me and my concern of pain was completely disregarded. Was also told to drink less water, though I expressed that if I do not drink water, I get an infection that requires antibiotics. Never thought I'd have a Dr. tell me to drink less water.

July 26, 2014

Felt like the care provider listened to me better on this encounter than in my prior encounter.

July 22, 2014

i appreciated how instead of just saying yeah you can get off the medication and walking out, he took time to really listen to what i had to say and try to find a way to improve things for me instead of just ignoring them and letting me just deal with them. i appreciated that he took the time to research what would work for me and explain what might be going on.

July 19, 2014

doctor was very personable as was his assistant and nurse

July 01, 2014


June 24, 2014

Received excellent care .

May 19, 2014

He was very thorough in going over my condition and what can be done. It was a good experience.

May 12, 2014

Seems to me that providers in this clinic are too specialized, more interested in treating kidneys, ureters and such rather than people. Instructions for follow-up blood work at the lab were clear enough for me to get there, but instructions about and directions to x-ray were not adequate. I had to ask the lab technician about what to do/where x-ray was, got lost on my way and when I did arrive at the right place, the order wasn't in the system.

May 11, 2014

I still don't know what to expect after 2 ER visits with kidney stones and the stent. Should I have imaging to see if the stones in both kidneys are gone? I tried to ask, but I probably wasn't clear enough.

April 12, 2014

Good experience

March 26, 2014

Fortunately, this visit was an easy serious problems. Craig is easy to talk to.

March 19, 2014

Good experience, don't have much to say.

March 17, 2014

good experience

February 24, 2014

Dr. Ensign was cheerful and confident while helping me to feel comfortable about my procedure. He resolved all of my concerns with ease.

February 24, 2014


February 06, 2014

PA looked at his watch multiple times and seemed uninterested in me being there unless I was passing a kidney stone right then.

January 18, 2014

Visit did not concern chronic or acute problem - just a periodic test. Doc very relaxed and communicative.

January 17, 2014

I am very grateful for Mr. Ensign's care.

January 13, 2014

fantastic across the board, thorough and so quick to narrow things down and finally get something done that no one has found it necessary to do before right in the middle of my visit because he knew it was necessary i have never been more impressed with a dr. i appreciated his thoroughness and willingness to do whatever was necessary to finally get me an answer and really explain what things meant to me and what was going on and why at all times i felt very involved in my own care which i greatly appreciated as well as the extra time he took that no one has bothered to do before.

January 03, 2014

He read the old Dr. report. Didn't think that I needed to take the test that the Dr. had said I needed to repeat in 6 months. Referred me to a OB/GYN instead. I was really surprised. I didn't understand why he didn't do more. I thought he would at least do an ultrasound or repeat the CT scan. I wasn't sure if he had any of my medical history or not. I will not see him if I need to see a Urologist again.

January 02, 2014

the visit seemed to be a complete waste of time. No further information was transmitted either way, from patient to PA or PA to myself.

December 28, 2013

Dr. Ensign is very knowledgeable, friendly and confident. I am very assured of his diagnosis. Thank God there was nothing wring. Just me being paranoid.

December 20, 2013

both PAs were delightful and very informed on the medical questions I had.

December 19, 2013

Craig is a great fellow and very professional!

December 16, 2013

thank you

November 25, 2013

Ensign was spot on. Great PA. Knowledgible, efficient, listens and he answers questions asked.

October 21, 2013

the hole experience was outstanding

October 18, 2013

I wish the care provider would give me a game plan of possible cae options that might be taken pending the results of the next 2 months of doing the prescribed care activities. I would like to know wht the future possibilities are.

October 09, 2013


October 07, 2013

No complaints. Very professional and able.

September 09, 2013

Craig Ensign is very good at what he does. Its an uncomfortable situation at best, but it sure helps when you have confidence in the provider.

September 04, 2013

Great !

August 22, 2013

Dr. Southwick is very knowledgable and easy to talk to about my problem. Would recommend him to others and already have... The hospital was awesome!!

August 05, 2013

I asked a few questions and he instructed me to go online and research the pros and cons of the procedure (vasectomy) I plan on having. He seemed rushed and didn't seem to want to spend much time with me. He explained very little and all of the information with which I left was obtained through my questions rather than him offering any degree of consultation.

July 19, 2013

Although recording high blood pressure for the third visit in a row, the Dr said I should see my primary health Dr, rather than dealing with it on the spot. Siloed approach! Also I went for a PSA follow-up, on the Dr's advice, and the crew thought it was for something else!

July 15, 2013

Craig Ensign provided excellent care...responsive, concerned, knowledgeable.

July 08, 2013

He said he would call me with the results of a CT he ordered, but never did. I assume that meant everything was all right.

June 25, 2013

Craig Ensign was friendly and reassuring. His approach to my symptoms was systematic and thorough. Craig was good at explaining the possible causes for my symptoms and did the proper tests to identify the cause. He made my two visits relaxed and informative and again was very reassuring.

June 24, 2013

Craig Ensign and his staff are superb!!!

June 17, 2013

I felt dismissed in this appointment. Craig focused on a single concern and the other issues were either hardly addressed or no concern was shown. For instance, I discussed my pain with the provider and the response I got was that sometimes pain is associated with my operation. It felt like there was no discussion about fixing the issue. I feel like I have to just live with the issue. Also, I was told about extreme treatment options without any investigation. It was unsettling.

June 17, 2013

Craig Ensign is an outstanding medical professional with superlative communication skills

June 04, 2013

Craig was excellent.

June 04, 2013

Craig Ensign is superb, and I am very grateful for his fine professional attention.

June 04, 2013

Answered all questions completely and kindly.

May 14, 2013

I was relieved that he addressed my main concern, but Iâ¿¿m still experiencing the same about of pain I have been for the past month.

April 17, 2013

As of this date, still have not recievied test results. I expected the results on my chart by now. Craig Ensign needs to follow through with this.

April 16, 2013

Craig was extremely helpful and explained things and helped me realize my situation could be controlled

April 02, 2013

Excellent experience!

March 13, 2013

Very good

March 04, 2013

Good Experience

February 26, 2013

There seemed to be a preconceived model about my condition and very little variance was given consideration.

February 25, 2013

Dr. Ensign acted like he didn't know I had two CAT scans. Never read a CAT scan report. Also told him of pains and lumps but was never looked at.

February 04, 2013

I will definitely return.

December 18, 2012

Craig Ensign is professional and empathic. Highly knowledgeable. Excellent listener and communicator.

December 17, 2012

very good

December 14, 2012

Craig Ensign was great. Took time to answer questions and make sure I had them all answered. Showed caring, was gentle, and very pleasant. I would recommend him to others.

November 27, 2012

great visit!

November 21, 2012

Good experience.

November 19, 2012

He isn't sure what is wrong and it's making me loose hope that we can cure what is wrong with me.

November 05, 2012


October 08, 2012

Craig is very friendly and helpful. I just hope my physical well being continues to be easy to deal with. So far, no complications.

August 10, 2012

Just Wonderful!

July 07, 2012

Outstanding overall

June 30, 2012

I really liked the PA, he seemed confident and knowledgeable. I only hoped he would explain some things more in detail, such as the medication and follow-up care. I had only a little confusion on it.

June 26, 2012

6/20/12 I was terrified but thanks to the calming attitude and professional demeanor Mr. Ensign, my fears slowly diminished.

June 11, 2012


May 11, 2012

Excellent service, friendly and informative in language I could understand

April 26, 2012

Craig Ensign was excellent in every respect.

April 19, 2012

Have had the same issue for a couple months now, seemed like he didn't listen to me and was just ready to give me med's again.

February 02, 2012

The care provider went out of his way to explain why he was doing what he was doing.

February 02, 2012

I only wish the doctor would listen to me.

January 05, 2012

Overall I am satisfied with the service I received. My only piece of advice would be to spend more time listening and getting in depth. He rushed to a conclusion with little information. (He said he believes I had Kidney Stones, but I have no pain of any kind). I just wish he would have spent more time evaluating and testing, before jumping to a conclusion.
