What our patients are saying!

As a long-time patient, I am accustomed to and grateful for years of excellent clinical care plus appropriate and respectful treatment by staff at General Internal Medicine…. in at least 22 years, I have never had a bad experience. Other medical practices can learn much from GIMG.

Came here for checkup / blood tests and had a great experience.  Rachel Spiotto (PA-C) and Lisa (nurse) were very competent, helpful and friendly.  Appointment was right on time with no waiting.  Online portal to view test results works great.  Thank you!

The first hour of the morning (between 0800-0900), you can call in and actually TALK to your doctor […]. I love this. No more playing phone tag with your doc to try to get lab results that they need to talk to you about.

Support staff at front desk is absolutely the best I have seen in 20 years of doctor visits. The sight alone of an Olga or a Juliet is enough to make me feel better, regardless of the complaint du jour. There is something healing about just seeing their smiling faces.  I hope they are given the proper credit for making a difference in the quality of a doctor visit.
This heartening experience is followed through with an invariably enlightening and encouraging experience with Dr Jenkins and Francine. I am fortunate to have found this practice 15 years ago.

I like that my prescriptions can be sent electronically to my pharmacy, and am pleased with everything.

I have gone to this Dr.’s office on a few different occasions including a visit yesterday as well as today. I met with Kimberly Callaway who was absolutely AMAZING – kind, professional, informative, and she saw me right on time. I was tested for strep and the flu – both of which came back negative. She knew there was an underlying factor that kept my fever so high (including a bad cough), so she ordered a chest x-ray… low and behold, I have pneumonia! She has followed up with me, and I’m going back in a few weeks to check my progress. The women at the front desk were very friendly as well. I assume it’s not easy being around sick people all day, but the women there were kind and professional. I can’t rave enough about Kimberly!
