Dr Howard-McNatt has been responsive to my needs when I am finally able to see her. Overall, this surgical experience and follow up has been unsatisfactory.
I found Dr. McNatt to be very confident and calm given the situation we were discussing.
my doctor/patient relationship with her is poor. she was not very personable but seems to have realized it and things have improved.
some of your questions don't really pertain to my one time visit (ever) to this provider & there was no medications involved. Dr. went far beyond what I expected. She was kind, courteous, personable, took her time with my medical exam and encouraged me to ask questions concerning my mammogram, my physical exam and her diagnosis/ prognosis. I was naturally anxious concerning this 1st time visit but when I left to go home I was confident in my visit, with the physician/ surgeon and the help staff. I was treated like an a person of importance, something the senior, retired community doesn't always receive.
Thank you all for being so kind and caring.
As indicated, this was an unusual situation but handled well.
Dr. McNatt was knowledgeable and courteous.
Dr McNatt is an excellent surgeon and brilliant in giving me the information I need. we are lucky to have her at Wake Forest.
I felt insecure with her explanations.
She was very helpful to me through my time of breast cancer.
*Dr. McNatt was exceptionally kind & thoughtful.
All staff were very caring, I feel extremely confident in *Dr. Howard McNatt and staff!
We had an outstanding experience for our first visit to the Cancer Center. I wouldn't have changed a thing.
Though the care provider was good and listened she did sometimes speak too quickly. I had someone to take notes for me however, had I been alone I think it would have been too much information to absorb
I was very anxious and worried about the procedure I was recommended. My doctor (and everyone at WF) walked me through everything. I left feeling relieved and ready for the surgery. I felt, at all times, in good hands.
It all was very positive, no problems, just the travel time from Lenoir to Winston
