Dr. Armstrong was very sincere...Very Happy with her.

December 09, 2016

Dr. Armstrong is a wonderful and caring doctor. Very professional.

November 28, 2016

She seemed to skim over my chart rather quickly. I had to direct her to the spot where I had been advised to get a procedure repeated again this year. If I had not questioned her about it, she would have TOTALLY missed it. She did not inquire of me if I had been having any health difficulties, or if I had any questions. It seemed like a very hurried appointment.

September 30, 2016

Very good

September 19, 2016

Dr Armstrong treated me like an adult and let me have a say in what I thought might be an issue. She reassured me my problems were capable of causing my distress. She was open and concerned.

September 19, 2016

She thorough in trying solve and figure out my problem

September 17, 2016

Dr. Armstrong has a very caring and concerned attitude.

September 11, 2016

I have recommended my doctor and I will so again

August 28, 2016

I have been so impressed with Dr. Armstrong. she came highly recommended from a friend and I feel so comfortable in her care. She is great at explaining medication side effects and also seeks to understand my concerns as a patient. She develops a plan of treatment which meets my needs and encourages me to take charge of my health as an individual. She is thorough and shows genuine concern even when she has limited time. Her staff updated me on time delays and was very professional. I enjoyed the visit and I am a patient who dreads going to the Doctor. Thank you !

August 26, 2016

I would recommend Dr. Armstrong to anyone who needs a doctor who cares. My whole family is seeing Dr. Armstrong , we have great trust in her

August 25, 2016

The doctor was referred to me by my daughter and I am very pleased

August 19, 2016

If she would have spent a little more time with me I would have been able to have been able to explain why I looked the way I did.

August 16, 2016


August 16, 2016

Dr Armstrong is awesome my whole family sees her and has for years. I love her personality and she is always smiling.

August 14, 2016

very good

July 21, 2016

I am looking forward to a continued relationship with Dr Armstrong. She was interested listened I felt comfortable with her and her expression of concern

June 27, 2016

she really cares and took her time

May 30, 2016

Dr is the best

May 09, 2016

even though she was behind, and my appointment was just a follow up, she took time to answer every question and concern I had. Excellent care!

April 06, 2016

I really like coming to see Dr. Armstrong. She really takes the time to listen to concerns and explain possible alternatives.

April 05, 2016

Have recommend Dr. Armstrong to 2 people.

March 27, 2016

I like Dr Armstrong. She is always very helpful to me.

March 25, 2016

I felt really rushed this time and I don't think she took the time to hear me out. Just passed me on to other doctors and never even said if I should return or not. Didn't ask about my general health or if there was anything else I needed. I think my visit with the doctor should be the full 15 minutes or however many minutes we are allowed now, not 12 minutes to another person and 3 with out own doctor. I was very disappointed with this visit.

March 01, 2016

The best doctor I have had.

February 27, 2016

Dr. Armstrong always shows great compassion and concern to me. Like she did last time. And how she treats all her patients.

February 07, 2016

In my life span of 66 years, Dr Armstrong is the best Dr I have ever been to. She shows all the concern that a Dr could show. She is not in a hurry to get to the next patient. she won't leave your room until she knows your satisfied and understands everything she has explained to you. As far as I am concerned she should be recognized for her skills as a Dr. and as a Dr with a concern about her patients.

January 27, 2016

Dr. Armstrong had a resident with her that did most of the examining. She did a great job. Dr. Armstrong was there as a resource for the resident. She also asked me questions and did a great job explaining what she thought was going my reason for being seen. Also explaining this to the resident using it as a teaching moment, and the appropriate treatment plan.

January 26, 2016

All concerns were not taken care of

January 12, 2016


January 07, 2016

Dr. Armstrong is wonderful. The changes in my medications have helped a lot. She is very good about explaining about different medications or treatment options and allowing me to decide what I would like to try.

January 07, 2016

Dr. Armstrong worked me into a same day spot when I had strep. I greatly appreciate that she did this so I could get treated and back to work!

January 07, 2016

Dr. Armstrong is amazing. She takes the time to talk with her patients and helps them understand the reasons for the tests she is ordering and why she is ordering them. You do not feel rushed in the visit. You feel that she really cares about you and your problems.

December 14, 2015

Dr. Armstrong is fantastic!

November 27, 2015

overall great experience

November 12, 2015

I think she is a very knowledgable doctor, but she has never once gotten of the computer, looked at me and actually talked to me. She has never asked me about my symptoms, how long I have had them, or how my "migrane" is different than the ones I have had before. I would like to find a doctor who at least pretend to care about me as a person, not some information on a computer.

November 11, 2015

I have recommended Armstrong and those who I've recommend her to - love her, too.

November 01, 2015

Dr. Armstrong listened to me but didn't lay one hand on me. I would think that with a complaint like chest pain, she would listen to my heart at the very least.

October 30, 2015

After 2 minutes I knew she cared more about the computer she never left than she did about me. Today's doctors care more about inputing data into computers than they do about actually talking to and trying to help patients.

October 23, 2015


October 23, 2015

This is the first doctor that has ever showed any concern about my medical condition.

October 15, 2015

September 08, 2015

I really appreciate having Dr. Armstrong as my primary care physician. She never makes me feel rushed, and is always very thorough, compassionate and helpful. She always explains her treatment suggestions and includes me in the discussion. It's nice to have someone watching over my health that I can put my trust in.

September 01, 2015

Dr Armstrong is great. Very knowledgeable and friendly. She is easy to talk to and listens well.

July 02, 2015

Dr. Armstrong is always very courteous and kind. She knows me, and knows my health concerns, and makes me feel as if she really cares about me.

June 26, 2015

I really like that she cares about you, and doesn't rush you through

June 22, 2015

Dr. Armstrong was very polite and professional. She made the visit comfortable.

June 13, 2015

Dr. Armstrong also had a student working with her and I found him very competent and friendly. he will make a good dr. some day.

May 22, 2015

Dr. Armstrong is a very caring, competent doctor in my opinion

I truly like Dr. Armstrong. She has a very good bedside manner.

March 10, 2015

Being 65, she is the best Dr that I have ever had in my 65 years of going to Doctors.

March 07, 2015

I felt more time was necessary to explain my condition, what my medications were for & what, if any follow-up visits were required.

March 06, 2015

Dr. Armstrong is by far the BEST Dr. She is always concerned about any issues you might have and goes above and beyond what is expected. I highly recommend her.

February 27, 2015

Dr. Armstrong is great! I have referred family & friends to her.

February 25, 2015

I chose her from a huge list on the Arches website and I think I got very lucky.

February 24, 2015

January 26, 2015

Dr. Armstrong is a very caring and considerate doctor. She is very skilled and takes time to listen to her patients and show them she cares for them.

January 25, 2015

Dr. Armsrong spent the time necessary for my needs!

January 21, 2015

The treatment prescribed by Dr. Armstrong does not seam to be working in regards to the rash. The prescribed treatment for the ringworm seams to be working.

January 13, 2015

I went in to a physical with concerns about my energy levels and heart beat. My information was taken, my blood was drawn and no discussion took place about my concerns. I got the results of my blood test the the website clipboard, but im not a doctor so i dont know how to read it.

December 29, 2014

Dr. Armstrong has always treated us with respect and kindness. She has calmed my son and his fears in every way and he is always happy to see her.

December 27, 2014

Very good experience! I always recommend the U of U Healthcare to friends and people that are asking about a healthcare provider they could trust!

December 26, 2014

Crystal was very kind. She showed concern for my situation and an eagerness to help me resolve the problem. She explained why she chose the prescription she gave me, and she offered to change it if it failed to help improve my situation. I will continue to see her in the future

December 04, 2014

Dr. Armstrong is Awesome :)

December 01, 2014

Dr. Armstrong was wonderful as well as all the nursing staff and front desk staff.

November 21, 2014

I appreciated her sincere concern about my worries and the empathy she expressed to me.

November 17, 2014

She was great!

November 06, 2014

Dr. Armstrong was very pleasant and asked appropriate questions for my concerns.

October 30, 2014

explained things nicely and helped me know what the tests that were done would help find answers to.

October 23, 2014

Dr. Armstrong is an excellent physician. She is able to take time with the patients and fully discuss any conditions that are brought up with her.

October 03, 2014

I was concerned about finding a new doctor after being without insurance for so long but Dr. Armstrong was understanding and very approachable.

September 28, 2014

Dr Armstrong was great...she should be at the Greenwood Clinic all the time.

September 23, 2014

Love Dr. Armstrong!

September 11, 2014

Didn't discuss my medications, even though I am on multiple prescriptions. Did not know that she had ordered further treatment for me; I had to ask the nurse who came to draw my blood.

August 30, 2014

I always recommend your stall to friends and family

July 21, 2014

Best Dr I have ever been to. Just love her

July 19, 2014

Dr Armstrong was great as always. she addressed all of my concerns.

July 07, 2014

came in very frustrated due to the fact the other dr had not taken my personal circumstances into consideration and basically lumped me into their general rule, while this dr was good i dont really appreciate being given statistics explaining why they didnt give me something in the first place, i am not a statistic i am a person and i know my body, i think this would be helpful for all doctors to repeat before seeing a patient, i love this clinic and its doctor and i hope these experiences were isolated incidents.

June 26, 2014

I feel that she is a very good doctor and I would recommend her. She is kind and compassionate and I am very happy with her as my doctor.

June 24, 2014

Dr. Armstrong is great. I like that she encourages me to research before doing testing.

June 20, 2014

Dr. Armstrong is an Excellent Provider! She ALWAYS addresses all of my concern's!

June 09, 2014

June 08, 2014

Dr Armstrong actually asked if I wanted something checked or not

June 06, 2014

I had never met Dr. Armstrong before. She was amazing for my appointment.

May 13, 2014

As always she is great and know her patients. She has been my provider for years and I will continue to have her.

May 10, 2014

I believe very much in drawer. Armstrong, she is very kind and understanding, takes the time to answer all questions or concerns

I truly feel we are working together to give me the best possible health. I have recommended her already and will continue to recommend her to anyone looking for a doctor.

May 21, 2013

Dr. Armstrong is a great doctor. She took great care of me.

March 22, 2013

Again, I felt like I was just a number, and pushed thru this appointment. I didn't get to asked all my questions because there just wasn't a chance to do so. This appointment was for a full physical and I feel like I came in and went out the door just that quick. Not happy if that is what a full physical is about.

March 12, 2013

Dr. Armstrong was amazing, very reseptive to my questions and concerns and very helpful. Best doctor I have seen since I was 13. I would recommend her to every friend or family member that needed a doctor.

December 24, 2012

because of how well she did she is now my 3 day old daughter's pediatrician

Dr. Armstrong is the epitome of a family doctor. She genuinely listened to my concerns & explained to me in layman's terms what her course of treatment would be. She was thorough, proficient & efficient. I have changed both my wife & my health issues to h

June 25, 2012

Dr. Armstrong took plenty of time addressing concerns and seemed genuinely interested in creating a treatment plan that would work.

June 08, 2012

The doctor was very attentive to me & my medical history. She genuinely demonstrated a desire to get to know my issues in her limited time. She was very knowledgeable about my current medications & eased my concerns about taking opiates for pain. I have decide that she is the right doctor for me & have scheduled all of my future appointments i.e. physical, lab work etc. with her as my new family physician.

June 05, 2012

Crystal was great about explaining what she thought I might have and the course of treatment. I could tell of her concern as to not wanting to take any chances because of some of the other medical issues I have.

April 10, 2012

She was a very nice doctor but had no interest in listening to what I was trying to tell her. I have not seen a PCP in a very long time and had many concerns, she also never asked me if I was current on my asthma medications, or asked me what medications I take in the first place. She seemed very interested in getting out of the room.

April 10, 2012

Good job

March 24, 2012

As you can see I really like Dr. Armstrong and I would recommend her to a friend or family member.

March 20, 2012

Would have liked more information on what to expect from the medication - ie., after finishing the z-pac when should I expect to be feeling better - when will I stop coughing? If my cough continues what is my next step ... another appointment or more medication?

March 20, 2012

I love having Dr. Armstrong for my doctor.

March 15, 2012

I really like my doctor

February 23, 2012

most excellent!

February 10, 2012

I think Crystal Armstrong is one of the best doctors ever. She takes time to tell me the pro's and con's of each medication that she puts me on. She doesn't cave to what I think I want or what I think I need, she gives me what SHE considers is my best option to be healthy and mentally well. She never talks down to me, she never belittles me for not understanding something, and she is very genuinely concerned about my well being. She's very easy to talk to and she listens to my concerns. Something few doctors do these days. Over all I am very happy with Crystal and think she is a wonderful doctor.

February 02, 2012

Crystal Armstong is Amazing ~ I love being able to come and see her, she is always ontime with her appointments and goes through everything with me!!

January 24, 2012

Dr. Armstrong is an excellent care giver. I feel well taken care of whenever I see her.

January 19, 2012

Very satisfied with every appointment.

January 12, 2012

Needs to brush up on her Celiac knowledge, that would make me a lot more comfortable.
