Dr Coombe took the time to listen to the details and was able to target the cause of my seizures increase lately.

February 06, 2016

When the care provider is in the exam room with us, we have their total attention. They are not looking at the time and trying to rush through the exam. They take their time, explain to us what they are going to do prior to doing it and make a new appointment before we leave. Once they say we are done, we can leave the exam room and go home or wherever.

January 31, 2016

Shari is wonderful to work with. We had a great visit.

Really, no complaints at all!

November 24, 2014

If Shari had checked to see if a battery test had been done on my VNS, actually when it was, we wouldn't have set up the surgery and I probably would have a seizure in the upcoming year and not knowing why. I thought I still had a long time on my battery. Apparently not. She was very pro-active to make sure I kept not having seizures and made sure my meds kept working right.

November 17, 2014

We are extremely impressed with Sheryl Combe's knowledge and holistic concern about our son. We have never met anyone who understands his needs so well and is so pro-active about addressing all of his issues.

I need Shari Combe worked with so that she would become a more functional care provider who I can trust in along with who others can trust in as well.
