    The doctor did not care about my pain at all, and she acted like I was exaggerating about my symptoms and pain.

    Dr. Thomas-Eapen is an excellent doctor. She listens to patient concerns and tries least invasive therapies first but will move through to other options as needed.

    This is not really about Dr. THOMAS-EAPEN. It was some random doctor who I guess was in training? He didn't seem to listen well.

    The doctors that saw me (an Attending and a Resident) were very calm, pleasant, and caring. In complete contrast to the nurse that checked me in, Dr. Thomas-Eapen did NOT act rushed or annoyed with me in any way. She was very calm and attentive. She made no mention of not doing the procedure I had been scheduled for. She asked me some questions and then examined the skin tags under my arm. She then informed me that her Resident (I believe is the term) would be doing the procedure and she explained how it would go. I was very happy that this doctor did not act the same way towards me that the nurse did and I have nothing but good things to say about both doctors that worked with me during this appointment. The procedure was completed successfully and I was out of their office before the 40 minutes allotted (in MyChart) were even up.

      Dr. Thomas-Eapen was wonderful. She was attentive, patient, informative, competent, efficient, and kind. She periodically checked to make sure I was okay during the procedure, explained what she was doing every step of the way, and allowed me to ask questions as she performed the procedure.

      This was an annual checkup visit. We didn't have time to discuss why I was getting more frequent migraines with aura. Was given referral to a neurologist and a prescription for a drug I used in the past. I'm not happy with the side effects of the drug, so am interested in seeing if there is something else that can be done. Am trying a very low dose of the drug to see if it helps. It's only been 4 days, and I haven't had a migraine, but it is still too soon to tell if it will work.

      Dr. Thomas-Eapen is a wise, thorough, efficient and compassionate provider. I've seen her for years and I've never once felt rushed, Ignored, Invalidated or like she doesn't care. More providers should take her lead.

      I left this this visit feeling great. The provider made me feel like a friend. She was engaged, intentional, and honest. I was comfortable as it I was in the room with my Mother. Honestly had a very good experience.

      The Provider told me that he would prescribe meds for me. I go to the pharmacy 5 hours later and, nothing had been called in for me. I explained to the physician that I had been in excruciating pain for a week. He was more concerned with whether or not I had been vaccinated which shouldn't even matter at this point.
