Kara Beaty, PA was very concerned about my neck pain. She explained next steps and options for further consideration. She ordered an MRI and said whenever it was scheduled within the next 2 weeks that she wanted to see me same day as the procedure. She walked me out to the receptionist desk. Her caring manner and professionalism was exceptional. She saw me again on 8/17, the date of my MRI. Showed me the x-rays on the PC and explained options for continuation of care. She referre me to the pain intervention center.

While I have a complicated set of symptoms (pain, balance, spasms, etc.) it is perhaps not reasonable to incorporate all these concerns into explanations of what my tests revealed, but providing a holistic overview would be helpful. Explanations of detailed information were excellent.

I loved how Miss Kara asked multiple times if what she was telling me made sense! Not every Dr. takes into consideration that their Patient may not speak "Dr. talk" lol
