April 24, 2016

She took the time to completely explain why I needed to use the medication in the morning rather than at night. I'll miss her if she moves on.

April 15, 2016

Kate is excellent at explaining what is going on and what my choices are. She listens to my concerns and is willing to work with me to find a solution that might not be exactly what she that at the beginning due to my travel, etc.

April 01, 2016

Kate is very competent, I have as much trust in her as MDs

March 31, 2016

Dr. Truehart listens and engages in meaningful dialogue.

March 31, 2016

Kate Trueheart is an excellent healthcare provider. I have always been impressed by her knowledge, personality and compassion. I wish your survey had a column for excellent.

March 17, 2016

The PA answered all my questions.

March 11, 2016

I was a little uncomfortable discussing my issue with a woman, but Dr. Trueheart was excellent. After all was said and done, I was glad she treated me. I don't want to see anyone else during the rest of my treatment.

March 05, 2016

I've already referred a good friend because of the excellent experience I've had.

March 01, 2016

Everything was fine

February 15, 2016

Ms. Trueheart could have discussed the side effects of the medication a little more. I don't recall her telling me and I don't know that now. I could look it up on the internet, but would have liked to talk about it at the time of my appointment.

February 08, 2016

Proveded to be very efficient and knowledgeable

January 29, 2016

As I said before, Kate was great in her understandings of my concerns, her explanations were easily understood and I felt very comfortable with the things that she explained to me.

January 29, 2016

Kate Truehart's bedside manner is second to none. All doctors could learn from her.

January 11, 2016

I have great confidence in Dr Trueheart and the way she communicated with me from the beginning was the key in why I went through this process with success.

January 11, 2016

Dr. Trueheart is amazing! She is so easy to talk with and she shows genuine concern and compassion for me. I feel like she is a trusted friend and confident that is truly concerned with getting me better. I also love her personality and how at ease she makes you feel while being treated. She's the best!

January 11, 2016

Ok

December 06, 2015

In regards to question #9: The rating "very good" is not really an adequate rating. My confidence in PA Trueheart would better be described as "extremely confident."

November 25, 2015

Had a very good experience. She made a difficult problem for me easy to talk about and address.

November 22, 2015

Ms Trueheart is very capable, helped me, and referred me to MD as I needed more help

November 18, 2015

I was pleased with the friendliness courtesy and frank discussion provided by Dr Trueheart and the PA Rick Jones

November 16, 2015

As a male dealing with a female doctor I find Dr. Trueheart friendly and easy to talk to about any problem or issue. Something I didn't have with other male doctors in the past.

October 28, 2015

Katherine was the best of all those I have had appointments with in the department. Even though she was so busy, she gave me the best information and direction I have received. She was great!

October 28, 2015

I was impressed with the professionalism and concern Kate Trueheart handle my particular problem. She was informitive and understanding.

October 22, 2015

I previously talked to a urologist at another facility that did not give me many options and did not listen to me clearly and so did not offer clear explanations to me. I am glad I waited to come to this center and Dr Trueheart.

October 11, 2015

I only wish She would spend a little more time in explaining, but refer to a General Counselor or Therapist when I'd like to know and understand more of anatomy and functions

September 28, 2015

This was a very pleasant experience to have Dr. Truehart and I would highly recommend her to my friends if they are in need of a urologist. Dr. Truehart was very kind and considerate to my needs. She explained everything in detail to me in words that were easily understandable. She has a very pleasant manner and way of putting you at ease. This visit involved a cystoscopy and she made it a very easy to manage procedure, explaining to me what the screen was showing and what action she was taking. She took the time to go over my previous CT Scan and explain that as well. I would highly recommend her and would return to her office if the need be. She also referred me to another Urologist who deals with my particular bladder problem, which I appreciated.

September 17, 2015

Grade: A or A+

August 31, 2015

Kate is one of the most caring providers I have ever known. She truly listens to my problems and works hard to solve them.

August 05, 2015

Considering the topic of discussion, I had a wonderful experience. I laughed and was placed at ease. Everything was explained and pros as well as cons were discussed. I mentioned to my Primary Care Provider that I had a great experience and that he should refer all his ED patients to this provider

July 22, 2015

I have referred several friends to Dr. Brandt and K Truehart's office, because of the personal and professional approach and demeanor. I enjoy each interaction with them. As much as I would prefer to not have to come in, I look forward to seeing K Truehart.

July 17, 2015

Dr. Trueheart put us at ease immediately and here knowledge of my history was impressive

July 10, 2015

Good

July 01, 2015

May 05, 2015

Kate Trueheart is the perfect provider. Takes time, clear explanations, cares and treats you like an equal.

April 19, 2015

I have always had a positive experience with Dr. Trueheart she is professional, knowledgeable, and easy to talk to. She takes the time to answer all my questions and makes me feel as though I am the only patient she has to see that day.

March 25, 2015

Excellent care. Very good bedside manner.

March 20, 2015

outstanding

January 19, 2015

Dr. Truehart should be commended for her care, concern and compassion for her patients. I have been a patient at several clinics throughout the United States over the course of my professional career and can honestly say that Dr. Truehart is one of the most educated and understanding medical professionals I have had the pleasure of seeing. She is truly one of a kind.

January 01, 2015

kate was very good and made me feel at easy as we talked about my problem and show me what to do

December 18, 2014

Ms Trueheart provided clear and complete explanation of my condition and the practice decisions of followed by the Urology team. She listened and responded to my concerns/questions.

October 26, 2014

I found Kate to be very informative and easy to communicate with; she explained things to me that I understood and I left the office with no doubt that she'd be there for me if I had further questions.

October 09, 2014

This was my first experience with this care provider. The experience was very good. She was both friendly and professional in every way.

September 14, 2014

Kathryn is always so friendly and helpful with information

September 12, 2014

Kate is the best. She explains, cares and demonstrates. She is genuinely concerned and interested and helpful. At the same time she doesn't mess around, waste time or fumble with the computer or tools. She is the reason why I stay with the U.

August 07, 2014

Dr. Brandt and Dr. Trueheart are invaluable assets to your organization, but the scheduling team (due to poorly timed appointments and consistent long waits in the waiting area) is enough to dissuade patients from returning.

May 08, 2014

Kate provided great advice and direction.

March 13, 2014

Great!

January 10, 2014

Although my "issue" is not completely diagnosed yet, I do feel as though I am in great hands. I have been to a few doctors about what has been going on and they really didn't put any effort into figuring it out. Kate took the time to explain what was going on, she went over options of what she thinks it might be and expressed that it is important to her that her patients are involved and comfortable in the decisions that are being made. I would recommend her to anyone!

November 13, 2013

the whole thing was very good

November 08, 2013

I was not prepared following surgery to experience periodic chills and sweats and being tired. I'm in my third week following surgery, the chills have decreased. I didn't realized I would be so tired.

June 10, 2013

I was provided excellent care.
