    Dr. Reading was wonderful. She took her time, listened to my concerns, and made me feel much more at ease. However, getting an actual appointment was a nightmare and was a receptionist issue rather than a provider issue. It took my primary care doctor sending over 2 referrals, me calling the receptionists at least 4 times without anyone ever getting back to me when they said they would, getting incorrect information and having to wait over a week to even get an appointment SCHEDULED. It was an extremely frustrating and difficult process that should have been very simple.

    I was pleasantly surprised with Dr. Reading. I have heard that surgeons are difficult often. She was pleasant, kind and professional. I would love her to be my primary care physician!

    When meeting Theresa, I felt I met a new best friend. She listened to me, she explained the procedures knowing that I now have breast cancer. She is very thorough and she has called me since and is just a new best friend to me.

    I went into the office knowing that I had a hernia, and I hadn't eaten the night before. And she understood my concerns ,and she actually fit me into surgery within 2 hours. There was an anesthesiologist, and everybody was ready. And they worked on me. I came out of anesthesia great. And my problem was fixed that very same day. I so appreciate them fitting me in and getting it done that same day and listening to me and understanding that I was in pain and that I needed something done about it right away. I am just so fantastically pleased.

    The provider was wonderful, but when I called to schedule my surgery, the person that was supposed to schedule it did not return my call for about 10 days, and it was very, very frustrating, because I couldn't schedule with work or with my person that was going to help me out, so I almost called a different provider. That was frustrating.
