“Laura is awesome! Not only is she knowledgeable and extremely proficient in her expertise as an NP, she probes to ensure understanding, clarify information, and confirm agreement. She is thorough, sensitive, friendly, and, she forgets NOTHING from past visits. I see no reason to ever see anyone but Laura when I have a skin problem. I’d check with her before I’d check with a doctor. She’s passionate about her work…you have a gem in her as your employee.”
