I am an out of town patient and email Dr. Archer when I have flare ups or concerns. she responds to each email through my chart and even calls when symptoms are bad. most providers do not do this. she's been treating me since January and I have never had a doctor like her. so thankful and lucky to have her as my provider - any patient would be
