The nurse was very friendly and she listen to my reason for the appointment. She did not rush me gave me the time I needed. Dr Lara was very professional and put me at ease. Before we finished with our time together Dr. Lara asked is there was anything else I needed help with. I would see her again. I believe she is a PLUS to your group.

Dr. Lara Shleef very quickly exceeded my expectations. I already had a good vibe going in because I just felt comfortable there, but she is definitely a great PA. She listens with intent and hears what I have to say without judgement. I was so insecure as I am working on weight loss right now but I never felt uncomfortable or judged at all. She talked to me in "English" and already had me on a path to success with my health. I am for sure sticking with Doc Lara indefinitely!

Lara was excellent. She asked a lot of questions and I felt like she was really listening to my answers, and asking more questions to make sure she understood what I was saying. Seemed to really care and wanted to get my problem resolved. I appreciated the time and interest she seemed to have in me.

went in to have a large cyst drained and she refused. was told to take antibiotics and sent home. I got the help of my daughter and drained the cyst myself. very disappointed in this PA. hope it was a fluke that she was off her game that day.

Laura was my NP at the Maryvale location. In 5 years I never saw the doctor, just Laura. When she moved to the new location, I decided to change my location as well. She is sooooo patient and caring for all my concerns. If she leaves the Scottsdale location I will follow her to her new location. Isabel

I came in with a UTI that didn't clear up right away with the antibiotics, but did get better and resolved. It would have been good to get some idea of what to expect in how long it would take to totally go away and when to come back in if some symptoms continued and with what severity.
