There was a lot of conversation and information but it did not stay focused on me. She was very opinionated and spoke about my daughter's care for longer than I felt was appropriate at my annual health check up. She was very informative about my health and explained the testing well. I just felt that the conversation related to my daughter's care was inappropriate. There was also a specific conversation regarding the lab and my insurance but my tests were still sent to the wrong place.

*Elaine L. gave me the 'best-yet' explanation for when/why muscle relaxers should be taken to minimize recovery time and avoid re-injury.

Once again I have complete trust in what Elaine Lawrence says. She asks questions and listens respectfully to my answers. She gives me plenty of time to explain. I have seen her for other health concerns in the past and she is one of the best, in my opinion.

When I called to make an appointment, my GP.. did not have any open appointments, so I asked to see Elaine because I've seen her before & she is extremely competent. The receptionist said they didn't have any appointments available until the following Monday (I called the previous Wednesday). So I made an appt for that Monday. During the afternoon on the Wednesday that I called for an appointment, I started feeling really bad so called to talk with Dr. Reutten's nurse. She also told me that Elaine had open appointments Thursday so I didn't have to wait until a Monday appointment. So , apparently, the receptionist did not give me the correct information regarding available appointments. I shared this information with Elain when I saw her that Thursday. Not sure what the problem was but hopefully it will be resolved.
