Liz Simmons has made regular check ups pleasant and not something to dread. Even the "depression station" (getting on the scale) isn't as bad as it was at previous offices. We discuss health, weight, exercise, she actively listens and tries to offer solutions. She also follows up and makes sure to give her medical opinion on where you stand in regards to your labs. Liz is definitely a keeper!
