I go to SW Medical....they have officdes all over the valley, they are ALWAYS prompt and polite and very effecient and the Doctors are willing to spend as much time as YOU need.....

Yesterday i went to my Neuroligist for a followup to some brain surgery....I overestimate traffic and ended up being 40 minutes early....I didnt even sit down before they called me back....I can't say enough good about them.

For a GP in Henderson I'd only go to Joe Johnson. Only reason I don't is I live in the NW now, and have found a great Dr. here, Dr. Michaels, who saved my life. As a plus, she's beautiful too. BTW, had I stayed at SW Med I'd be dead now. They were totally neglecting a life threatening condition. Chain store medicine is only interested in your insurance.

Our plan is Cigna; many of the primary care physicians listed in the Cigna website are taking patients but there is a catch. It seems many of them have switched to "concierge practice." Basically, they won't take me as a patient unless I pay them $1500.00 per year extra (not covered by insurance) for which I get a physical and faster access to the Dr.

This is a glimpse into the future - the USA doesn't have enough MDs, and the situation isn't going to get better any time soon.

Wow, this doctor gets consistently GREAT reviews. I've had a horrible time finding a good doctor in this area. If the insurance situation is good, I'm going to give him a try. I've been to 2 GPs since I moved here and I didn't trust either of them. You have to be able to trust an MD.

Once again, Buzz...thanks for some great information.

well the last doctor i saw was a GI doctor....

but she was AWESOME!!!!! I get to the doctors office. a small wait to fill out papers. and then i was wooshed right into the room.

So she asked what the matter was and i told her and she listened i mean really listened... (long story short i ended up needing my gallbladder removed it was full of gallstones) but i am telling you she was fantastic...

Not that i really want to see her ever again... (i cant stand hospitals) but she was fantastic I highly recommend her. i dont think i have ever felt comfortable with a doctor before.
