Christine was excellent (along with all other staff).

January 19, 2015

Christine Packard is awesome! Her "bed side manner" is excellent. She listened and showed concern. I felt we worked out a plan together instead of her just telling me what to do. I didn't feel that she was rushed, even though she fit me into her busy schedule.

January 13, 2015


January 02, 2015

PA understood my concerns and thoroughly discussed the conditions and potential remedies.

December 30, 2014

Christine Packard was kind, explained the process and expectations when pulling out the stitches, and had helpful info regarding follow-up and possible scar revision if needed. Thank you for your help!

December 21, 2014

I appreciate the time she spent with me to answer my questions. A very down to earth professional.

December 15, 2014

The hearing test went very well and Dr Parker was up front and we were well informed

November 21, 2014

I LOVE Christine, she is always so concerned and caring and really knows her stuff. She is a rock star!

November 13, 2014

Good experience. PA Packard was gentle when cleaning my ears. I have already scheduled a routine follow-up with her.

November 03, 2014

We will come back and see the PA- she was amazing and very gentle!!!

October 30, 2014

All of the answers above, pertain to the PA--she was great.

October 23, 2014


October 02, 2014

I was very happy with care I received for this issue.

September 29, 2014

I was very glad I came and learned about my ear. They performed the tests to help me clear up my concerns.

September 08, 2014

Christine is awsome

September 05, 2014

I really liked Christine and feel much better about my issues after seeing her.

September 05, 2014

Dr Packard is an excellent professional: Knowledgeable, professional, yet personal/empathic

August 14, 2014

Christine is excellent, she explained the diagnosis and answered my questions.

July 24, 2014

I have to have an MRI, so there is still follow-up needed. Everything was clear and easy to understand. At this point, I don't have many questions.

July 05, 2014

Great doctor, staff and hospital

June 30, 2014

she was very helpful

June 25, 2014

Doctor packard was amazing i would definetly recommend her.

June 12, 2014

Christine Packard was very professional and competent. It was a total delight to have her as the one to help me with my concerns.

June 09, 2014

Appreciated her expertise and advice. I am feeling much better.

June 06, 2014

All Good....

May 31, 2014

I was impressed with the doctor and the techs that administered my exam. Very professional but had some humor as well.

May 27, 2014

Was not aware of the information from my prior visit.

May 20, 2014

I have only good things to say. Dr. Packard is one of the absolute nicest, most helpful and most informative doctor I have ever met. She let me ask all the questions I had. She informed me about different options. She did not rush me. She showed concern for my problem, and how much the feeling of deafness after an ear infections affects me, both in the sense that I feel "isolated" from the world and how difficult it makes me work at a public library where conversation is everything. She even helped me with getting a note that I could with me so that the work place needs to accommodate me regarding taking phone calls while I can't hear well. Thank you very much Dr. Packard. You did everything 100% right, and were a nice person on top of that!

April 19, 2014

My care provider was very pleasant, informative, and rates among the best I've seen.

March 16, 2014

Again, she was very nice and I could tell she did have interest in my issue, however I felt that I could've received antibiotics from any other clinic. I expected a bit more from the U of U.

March 12, 2014

Ms Packard did a very good job explaining the medical issue and getting me scheduled with Dr. Orlandi as soon as possible.

February 23, 2014

I would refer this care provider to family and friends who need an ENT. In fact, she was referred to me by a relative. The care provider was easy to talk to and took time to answer my questions and concerns. I felt like I was treated as an individual, as opposed to just a number on a long list of patients.

January 27, 2014

Christine was very professional and knowledgeable. She answered my questions well and made me feel comfortable to ask questions.

January 23, 2014

Christine Packard was an excellent provider whom I will highly recommend to anyone with a health problem.

January 12, 2014

Christine Packard was great!

January 10, 2014

Thank you for being so awesome!!!

January 06, 2014

I was very impressed with the time and attention I got. All my questions were answered. Excellent service.

January 02, 2014

very good

December 30, 2013

good help

December 13, 2013

Again Christine is compassionate and extremely understanding especially as my condition is confusing as hell to me but she's handling that just fine.

December 11, 2013

Christine was great, and I really liked the University of Utah clinic. I was very nervous going into this but she made me feel comfortable and confident

December 06, 2013


December 03, 2013

The 4 on followup was only because she didn't give me an information sheet I expected. Very minor issue.

November 26, 2013

All good.

November 18, 2013

My bad hearing makes it tough to understand a fast-talker who uses big medical words. The printed handout was helpful in the learning process. My concern is not knowing the future trajectory of hearing loss- and never going through the future steps or prevention methods.

October 14, 2013

outstanding and caring Audiologist and PA

October 08, 2013

Very well informed and easy to understand. If I could not hear she made certain to repeat with patience.

September 28, 2013

all was great

September 27, 2013

Christine Packard provided excellent care.

September 10, 2013

Christine Packard was absolutely wonderful!! She took the time to explain everything in a very understandable manner. She has an incredible "bedside manner" and I left her room feeling much better about my situation than when I arrived. I would recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone I know suffering from any ENT issue...

September 03, 2013

Very professional care giver, knowledgeable

August 13, 2013

No issues

August 07, 2013

Christine Packard is an excellent clinician. More importantly she truly cares for each of her patients and their needs. Please let her boss know that I trust and value her recommendations and the care that she provides. She is simply one of the very best providers that I have had at the U!

August 02, 2013

She didn't consider all the associated symptoms provided and treat me like ...Really this is nothing.. and after finishing pain killer she gave me, my pain and symptoms are back.

July 30, 2013

Left message for cat scan results, never called back.

July 24, 2013


July 19, 2013

Christine did a great job diagnosing my TMJ and was helpful in explaining my options.

July 15, 2013

Provider was not sure if I had an ear infection (reason I came in was to find out if I had an ear infection), because of lack of experience seeing inside my ear. Recommended using ear drops.

July 01, 2013

have no problems with the help I recieved

May 22, 2013

Very nice and took time to talk with me and explain things.

May 17, 2013

Everything went well.

May 13, 2013

Christine is great!

May 06, 2013

I felt very comfortable with Christine Packard. She was very professional and helpful, but also very friendly.

May 06, 2013

Christine Packer is excellent. She listened to my situation and gave an assessment.

April 26, 2013

even at your 1515 west 21st so clinic everyone is great The Doctors treat you soooo nice and the don't hurry you up! never felt like I was taking to long!!

April 26, 2013

The whole experience was very positive and she really helped in setting my fears to rest and easing my mind. It was especially helpful to be able to see the area that required treatment with the scope!

April 17, 2013

Christine Packard was really helpful. It was so good to know what was going on. I was grateful for a plan of treatment.

April 09, 2013

This has been an issue I have put off for a long time. Even though its a simple runny nose, its been very bothersome to me for years. The PA was very knowledgeable and talked with me about many different treatment options.

April 05, 2013

CHristine Packard was great. SHe listened to everything I had to say and gave me explanations about things that she could. She also told about the different options and how she thought it would be best for me to proceed over the next month or so.

April 01, 2013

DR. Packard is a very good doctor.

April 01, 2013

Christine Packard (PA) was excellent and answered all my questions. Great provider!

March 18, 2013

Ms. Packard was very thorough and helpful in describing each step in the process. She does a great job.

March 12, 2013

I felt that Ms. Packard didn't ask enough questions about my condition. It turns out that there was some information that would have been helpful to know, but which she didn't ask about. I didn't know to volunteer the information, because I didn't know it was relevant. I saw my regular doctor three days later, and she said there was no evidence of an ear infection, and that the prescription of Ciprofloxacin was unnecessary.

March 04, 2013

I felt that I was dismissed with no solution to my problem other than nose spray. I still have fullness in my left ear, left side of my throat and the only resolution was some relief in my left nostril.

March 04, 2013

Everything was very good.

February 25, 2013

Can't say enough how much I appreciate the whole team and their efforts to address and care for me in an urgent situation.

February 08, 2013

At first the information did not meet my needs, but once I started asking more complex questions, Christine started providing more information. She addressed my concerns and helped me feel comfortable with the POA.

February 05, 2013

Christine was amazing. I felt like I left with a lot of information, insight, and that helped me feel comfortable.

January 30, 2013

I had a great experience and have already referred one person to your clinic

January 28, 2013

Christine made sure everthing she told me I understood. She answered all my question and she called me to make sure I was doing ok. WOW!!

January 21, 2013


December 31, 2012

The physician assistant was very thorough, easy to talk to, listened to all of my questions, explored several different potential causes of my issues, offered several solutions and I felt that she really did care about the follow up appointment and treatment. I wasn't just another face in the clinic, I felt like she really did want to see me resolve my issue.

December 27, 2012

Everything was explained well. I felt cared for, not rushed, and confident that my care was important to my care provider.

December 27, 2012

I was seen for a chronic condition and have seen many different physicians and have never received such a thorough examination as I did with Christine Packard.

December 26, 2012

Christine Packard is excellent and professional.

December 12, 2012

Spent a lot of time with me and was personable. I am very impressed with my visit. I have a minor complaint however, the provider did not really go over the medications (risks, side effects, etc). I also had a more pressing concern - when I looked at my medical records later there were several things that did not happen that were in the notes. Perhaps the provider needs to take notes or dictate immediatly following the visit so that it is as accurate as possible. This concerns me greatly as that is now a part of my medical record history. They were not major enough for me to throw a fit but enough to want to see my records each time and to be concerned about my care for the future. I feel unable to discuss this issue with the provdier directly as I am concerned it will irritate and impact the quality of my care with the provider in the future.

November 12, 2012

PA, Christine Packard shows genuine concern for her patients. The follow up was remarkable. I really felt like there was sincere interest in my getting well.

November 07, 2012

Wonderful all the way around!

October 16, 2012

She spent a great amount of time dealing with a difficult issue that was going on in my ear. I was very appreciative of it and liked her very much.
