This was my second visit with Dr. Stanley. During the 1st visit she was very rude & short considering it was my first visit. Second visit she was a little more pleasant.

She can definitely have a little more patience, real quick with her response, and somewhat condescending.

Both Providers (my PCP - Dr. X & Dr. A. H. Stanley are excellent providers. I'm very inquisitive & have questions about my health status & both make me feel extremely comfortable asking & getting & understanding my situation. It's almost like talking to a (smart & knowledge) friend who is very concerned about you - no rushing (time concerns are on me not them for the next scheduled person!) THANK YOU! To them both.
