Several years ago, my daughter was having lower abdominal pain. Dr. Navarro knew right away it was her appendix. Several specialists and surgeons disagreed and sent her home. She was in agony for six weeks. Dr. Navarro referred her to one last specialist who went in laparoscopically to take a look. Lo and behold, it was her appendix, and it was ready to rupture. Thankfully for us, the surgeon removed it in time.
Dr. Seaman truly cares about each and every one of her patients. At every visit, she is attentive, listens to your concerns, and thoroughly reviews your records to update and add new information. She sits and listens, so I never feel rushed. She’s down to earth and never makes me feel nervous. I really like her as a human being.
Dr. Lettrick is steady, efficient, and caring. He always greets you warmly, listens to what you have to say, is thorough with exams, and explains what he is doing and why. Dr. Lettrick shows an interest in you as an individual, and he fosters trust in the medical profession as a whole.
Someone always answers the phone at Dr. Van Woert’s office. It’s quick and easy to get an appointment, and she is very thorough. What’s more impressive is that she even volunteered a home visit when my husband was discharged from the hospital after a lengthy stay.
For many years, Dr. Forman and his team have provided excellent primary care for my family. Since my son joined the United States Air Force, his family has moved frequently, which causes a lot of inconsistency in their health care. However, if his children or wife get sick while visiting, Dr. Forman always makes the time to see them. He’s even offered to provide health care guidance for the family no matter where in the world they live. It is so reassuring that, even though they no longer live locally, Dr. Forman and the Delmar Family Medicine team are still there for our loved ones.
Nick is always helpful and pleasant. He often works through his breaks to find information for a patient or take care of a concern they may have. He gets results when a patient calls with a concern. He remembers patients and treats them all like family. It’s great to have someone to rely on and trust, especially when it comes to health care.
My son suffers from extreme anxiety and depression. It has been very difficult to find a doctor who is understanding and who can offer the proper resources to help my child. Last year, my son was suicidal. Patrick literally saved his life. He cleared his schedule to accommodate us. He even called after the office was closed to check in and ask if there was anything more he could do. It says a lot when a clinician goes above and beyond to help your family! If it wasn’t for Patrick, I don’t know where my son would be today.
Jill remembers who her patients are, what their individual needs are, and even asks about their family members. She and I spent two years trying to figure out the cause of my sudden weight gain and finally figured out it was polycystic ovary syndrome. Additionally, when I thought my youngest child might have ADD/ADHD, she suggested I send her in for a sleep study based on new data showing that lack of sleep can cause the same symptoms. She was on it, always is, and always is a pleasure!
Several years ago, I suffered a pregnancy loss. I was in a bad place emotionally and very close to a complete breakdown. Michelle made the appointment for me the very next day and she sat with me and let me cry, and was willing to help me without pause or reservation. Her bedside manner was warm and empathetic, and her response to my crisis was appropriate and measured. I felt seen and I felt saved. She helped me develop a plan to begin to crawl out of my trauma; I owe her my life.
It’s the little things that make a big difference with Susan. She gets back to you quickly, listens to your problems, goes over your medicines, and will help you whenever you need her. She always calls back with test results or when you have a question, and she takes time to understand what your problem is.
Mary Shierley is exceptional in Castleton/Schodack. She is smart and young and is soo professional. I’m 73 and she understands seniors. She is a breath of fresh air at CCP.
