I have seen this MD 3 times every year she orders my Mamos and is one of the best Drs. I have ever seen,

As a health care professional myself, I was very disappointed with this visit. This was my first visit with this doctor and she did not bother to build any rapport with me or get to know me at all. After asking a question about my results, she went on to explain how I don't have to worry about understanding the medical verbiage in my results because that was her job. She went on to say how she went to medical school for 8 years and training for 4 years in order to interpret results such as mine. I thought that was an unnecessary comment. After saying goodbye to me, I heard the doctor telling someone at the desk outside of my room that it was her job to interpret the medical verbiage and not my job. I found that to be extremely rude and unprofessional to complain to someone else about the private discussion she had just had with me, especially while I was still there in my room getting dressed. She made me feel degraded and belittled for asking a simple question regarding my health concern. I walked out of the visit feeling extremely upset. I will be looking for another doctor and I would never recommend this doctor to anyone I know.

Dr Biester was a great listener, she really cared and was excellent at explaining things to me. I have a feeling she was running late bc she does take her time meeting with clients, which I support :)
