Dr. Chizek is a gem. Plain and simple. A good listener, kind and above all, thorough and professional in her approach.

I think the doctor is knowledgeable. However during my in person visit she didn't address any concern I mentioned, even though she seemed to have heard me. This time she paid me more attention. She prescribed iron tablets, called Slow FE, to me by mistake. That's why I reached out to her in the first place. I didn't pick up the prescription because I suspected it wasn't for me and I was right. Please make sure I don't get billed for the prescription or any consultation fee related to the prescription.

I felt this time it went well. The doctor heard all my questions and went through everything with me. I like video visits because it's a lot easier. But I felt the instructions could be better. Plus it didn't work right away and I had to exit and re-enter.

I don't think she was paying attention to me. As I was describing my concerns and potential causes, she nodded along but gave no comment. She proceeded to do the normal well check and dismissed me. I am certain she forgot about my concerns. She didn't ask any questions or make any suggestions.
