This was my first visit with her and I'm not sure I'd see her again. Very reliant on the computer to tell her what to do. Didn't spend any time getting to know me as a person. She was nice enough but I think I'd like a more seasoned provider

Philander seemed nice enough but I really like my previous Dr Vasiloff (she was just booked too far out). Today's visit felt like they were just going through the motions and not really seeing me as a person and getting to know me. Dr. Vasiloff tends to take time to ask a lot of questions and educate.

Dr. Philander was very nice but there were several issues with the visit. My medical records for that visit had some mistakes - there was a diagnosis for a condition I do not have nor did we discuss, the documented weight was off by 20 pounds from the in-office measurement - which is not particularly problematic except that I was counseled by Dr. Philander to exercise more but I am considered underweight and have been told in the past to limit exercise. Tests were not completed on the blood sample I gave and I have to return to give another sample, which was only even discussed because I noticed the test lingering on my \to do\" list
