    Excellent level of care. Dr. Hufnagel took the time to listen to my concerns, explain why she was making the decisions or recommendations that she did, and get my input into these decisions as well. Best doctor I've ever had.

      Re recommending this care provider: I did ask whether she was taking new patients because I had a recommendation, but she is not currently, so I won't be recommending this care provider but not because of any treatment complaints.

      Dr. Hufnagel listened to my "complaints" without judgement. She gave me several suggestions of how to continue my efforts to improve my overall health. She supported my efforts to date! She is an attentive and caring physician!

      It was my well visit, which the doctor didn't know. She asked me why I was in to see her. Not that big of a deal but kinda makes me wonder if she's reading my chart at all. I've intentionally lost a considerable amount of weight and she never even mentioned it. I found that concerning and kinda disappointing. Wouldn't that be something most doctors would notice? My friend and family sure have. Even with the weight loss, my blood pressure was high 140/80, I have history of having high BP. In fact, I couldn't get dental work done last year due to high BP, which resulted in a doctor visit the next day. Dr. Hufnagel saw me and her first comment was I had gained another 10 lbs from the year before. So she can read a chart I guess? This prompted me to work hard to lose not only those 10 pounds but another 20. Since I'm only 5'2" I feel like that's a significant amount to lose. I mentioned the fact that I am going 6 weeks between my periods and told her I've always being very regular. Every 28 days. She just said it sounded like the start of menopause. Yeah, that I know. The part that bothered me was she never followed up with any questions. My periods are so heavy these days I can't leave the house some days. Is this normal? I guess I should have told her but shouldn't she be asking me the questions? She's the doctor. I felt like way bother? She doesn't really care. No one asked me really any questions other than if I wanted to kill myself. Seriously? They are asked in such a blas? way I'm not sure anyone answers them honestly. How about asking me if I get frequent headaches or how menopause is going? She did ask if I got regular exercise. I told her between cleansing houses all day and walking every night I feel like I get more than most. The question/comment I got was if I cleaned Airbnb's since she is an owner of three with a fourth coming. First, I'm not a maid and secondly why would you say this to a patient? Sure must be nice to own 4 extra homes. Maybe that's why she doesn't ask any questions about my health. She's got bigger problems to worry about. I always leave her office feeling like it was a wasted trip. I don't know if I'm in good health or not. I don't know if I need to do anything different to improve my health or if I even need to. Isn't this a problem? I feel like it is.

      She was rude, ignorant, and not at all empathetic.

      She did a great job with typical, routine physical exam. However I had mild/mod (no ER or doctors visits related to it) Covid in January, no real follow up from that. I know healthcare workers are exhausted, but a little further follow up related to long Covid I think is essential. There are many things we don't know, and the only way to learn more is by talking about it. Sleep disturbances, fatigue, Continued distortion of taste and smell are all long Covid symptoms but I felt were dismissed. Also refused to do antibody testing as she felt it was "useless" and didn't mean anything. How do we know this? The only way we continue to learn is to continue to assess post-Covid patients throughly. Will I continue to see her ? Yes. I think this is an over all healthcare issue, not isolated to this visit.
