    How was your appointment with Dr. Rudgear?

    Sep 25, 2018
    My primary care physician sent me to this practice group for further evaluation of my thyroid. Sparing all the details, I could not be more pleased than I was. In particular, nurse practitioner Leeanna Peterson was superb. Her medical assistant Susie, the front desk staff of Diane and Lori, and phlebotomist Anita were top notch. Leeanna is thorough, empathetic, available - and patiently answered my questions and concerns. Highly recommend this team! (Dr Rudgears was unavailable, it seemed.)
