I have many health concerns and Dr. Willis's careful and competent care put my mind st ease. She has my best interests as her priority.
Dr. Willis ALWAYS spends ample time with me and allows me to think of things to ask that i may have forgotten during the visit process. She is so compassionate, caring, knowledgeable and has what it takes to make Clemmons so successful!!
I am currently looking for a Dr. I love Wake Forest. I have not been satisfied with this Dr. I have recommend her to friends that have made appointments. After several appointments these patients are not going to this Dr.
I would recommend this care provider but I know that she works a limited schedule.
She was not my primary care physician but she was so nice and took very good care of me.
The doctor prescribed a muscle relaxant and when I went to pick it up at the pharmacy was told that it required prior approval has it was a high risk medication and that the insurance company would not pay for it. I was concerned that I was not told by the doctor that this medication was high risk.
I don't know how my Dr. could be any better. she is always ready to listen and suggest new ways to help me with my many major issues.?she is prompt, caring and represents her profession well. I greatly appreciate Dr. Willis.
I had never met Dr. Willis before and it started off badly right away when she failed to even introduce herself when she walked in the door. She went immediately to the computer and said "let me pull up your file" and that was all the introduction I got. She then proceeded to ask me closed-ended questions in rapid fire, never looking up from typing on the computer. I didn't feel that I was able to convey the symptoms I was feeling or the stress that these problems had put on my life because she just didn't seem to care. She barely examined me, mentioned that she'd get some labs and then headed out the door. I did not feel like I was listened to or cared about.
the Dr. was prepared to talk about my previous treatmentgave suggestions for future care
Dr. Willis listened patiently and asked relevant questions about the medical issue that was the purpose of my visit. She took time to keep me informed about test results over the week-end which was much appreciated.
Dr Willis is an excellent provider
I do tell people about my Doctor and staff all the time, and how great they are. So glad they are there.
I have already recommended this provider to others -- who are now seeing her as their provider.
collaborative rather than a hierarchical relationship
she understands me. I'm quirky and don't want narcotics because they make me feel bad. I seek out other means to help with my pain and I feel supported.
