I was there for a skin check and then he did mole removal.
I liked that I was able to get in quickly and he was very nice and down to earth and explained everything he was doing as he did it. He had an intern with him and asked my permission to have him in the room while he was checking over my skin.
Office visit for re-check on adult acne and rosacea.
Fast, friendly check-in. Less than 5 minute wait in the comfortable waiting area before the nurse took me back to a room to review my health history. Was only in room for approximately 5 minutes before provider came in to visit with me about the ongoing treatment of my acne and rosacea. After a thorough discussion of how my issues had been between my visits, the provider did a thorough visual check of the skin on my face and check (problem areas). We discussed treatment options and labs that I would need. Overall, a friendly visit with excellent education on my treatment and issues.
This appointment was for my annual physical. I have been seeing Dr. Klindworth at the Community Health Center for 2 years, ever since I moved to the area. I chose her at random just because she looked friendly in her picture and she was certainly true to form. Dr. Klindworth is very down to earth. She communicates very well and I knew from the first visit that I had found my family’s new physician. Dr. Klindworth keeps things moving at a good pace so I always have my questions ready so I don’t forget something before she leaves. She is willing to listen, take suggestions from me about what I want for my health, but is very intelligent and knowledgable and will always make sure I get the right tests and treatment for my needs.
When I arrived for my appointment I was greeted by the staff with a smile as usual. I waited no more than 10 minutes in the waiting room and was called back by the nurse, again with a smile and a hello. Once in the room, the nurse took my vital signs, asked me the appropriate questions and gave me a gown and instructions about how much to disrobe. I waited for about 5 minutes to see the doctor.
Dr. Klindworth came in to see me with a purpose in her step as she always does. She asked me questions as she pulled up my file on the computer. She didn’t just ask me health questions. Dr. K asks me about my son and my life aside from my health. She cares about me as a whole person. She did my physical exam, including heart, lungs, PAP, breast exam, etc. She is always very professional and helps me maintain my modesty. When doing my PAP and pelvic exam she tells me what she is doing each step of the way and is as gentle and quick as she can be. I really appreciate how she does things. Since she is a woman she is the only one in the room, but if I asked I could have a second person in there with me. I just don’t choose to do that.
Afterward, she left and I got dressed. The nurse came in and gave me my referral appointments to the acne skin care specialists Dr. Klindworth and I had discussed, and I was on my way. She sent me letters with my lab results very promptly.
