I have been pleased.

I have had to wait for extended periods during many of my visits. Doc should allow more time between visits and/or should not schedule early visits if she needs to spend more time at the hospital.

Dr. Gist has continuously provided open, honest. care. if I have questions, she takes the time necessary to explain, so I understand, what's going on and why. whenever I'm in the hospital, she always visits. Not many doctors do that anymore I've been told. Whenever she decides to move on, I will be devastated!
