Omg, I love Sarah Orchard. She is attentive, engaged, wrote down a couple questions I had, and I know I'll hear about future appointments for mammogram and MRI, updated me on my colonoscopy - 2026, so I can keep that info in mind, and help arrange dates for shots, and was pleased that I feel so good! She's so compassionate and straight with me. I will see Dr Sarah Hill, in January. And am pleased to work with her as well. Again compassionate, listens to my concern, and engaged in making sure I stay healthy!!!
