How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Kearns is absolutely amazing. She is patient, thoughtful, and thorough. I've recommended 5 friends to her, who have been really pleased as well. It's so refreshing to have a doctor that doesn't make me feel rushed!

How was your experience with the doctor?I had to wait well past my appointment time because everything seemed to be running behind. The office seemed very unorganized. When I was finally called, the doctor's assistant (or resident I think) came in, she asked me a few questions and had a very judgmental tone the whole time. When she took my blood and examined me, she didn't put gloves on at any point. They handle vials & urine cups with no gloves. Dr. Kearns had no bedside manner and was very matter of fact, also judgmental. Did not feel welcome at all.

How was your experience with the doctor?I am so happy to have found a PCP!! I have been looking for someone for years and Dr. Kearns-Stanley is exactly what I wanted in a PCP. Calming, judgement free, efficient but I didn’t feel as if I was being rushed. It was a great experience! Now just waiting for the follow up and I have no doubt she will continue to be wonderful with her treatment strategy!

How was your experience with the doctor?Great doctor - So attentive kind and gentle. It was well worth the wait - I gather this doctor often runs late but I assume that is because she takes the time to listen to her patients. Really really glad I was recommended dr Kearns. Only complain will be about the reception staff - one of the three receptionist was curt and unhelpful. It was a hot day and she refused water to me as well as a seemingly pregnant lady. I understand there is no water cooler in the office but there is no need for the curt and dismissive attitude.

How was your experience with the doctor?I chose this doctor because I desperately needed a new anti depressant and something else for anxiety because I have pretty bad social phobia. She listened to me then prescribed two medicines she thinks will work, and I'm so excited that someone finally listened to me and prescribed something specifically for anxiety instead of just pushing more anti depressants at me. She is super nice and I'm hopeful that I'll feel better soon.

How was your experience with the doctor?Have been using MK-S for around 8+ years and she is awesome. She is respectful of time, appointments typically are very close to on-time every time, she spends the amount of time you need and answers questions thoroughly. She also maintains a very well respected list of specialists to refer you to if you need a specialized follow-up. Highly recommended!

How was your experience with the doctor?It was a great experience. I was attended to as soon as i walked in, staff was friendly and efficient. I was taken in my one of the assistant doctors and all info was handled, and then the Doctor came in. She is very pleasant and if bed side manners are important to you, she is great! Going to keep her on as my GP!

Bedside manner: Unsatisfactory

How was your experience with the doctor?The wait was a bit long (35-45 mins) but honestly I didn't mind. My main concern was that the overall exam / appointment was not thorough in the slightest. I was there for an (OBGYN) annual as a new patient. I got the feeling like the doctor was not properly prepared to conduct an annual; there were tools, devices, and clutter on the main countertop (and not ones needed for a pap exam). I was not asked about any current medical concerns or medical history, which I felt should be somewhat relevant as a new patient. Plus someone almost entered the room (very literally) mid exam (FYI there are no locks on the doors), which for a female check up was quite disconcerting. To be fair, I chose to see a family doctor rather than an OBGYN, so perhaps this contributed to my experience? Although she was friendly enough, I will not be back for a second visit.

How was your experience with the doctor?Very short wait time at the office. Dr. Kearns-Stanley took my vitals herself (rather than a nurse) and was so thorough and patient in answering all my questions. She has a very calming demeanor and is great at assuaging any nerves or concerns you might have. Got me in and out of my appointment without rushing and made sure I was comfortable the entire time.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Kearns-Stanley is wonderful, makes you feel safe, and does not push you into unnecessary prescriptions or follow-up services. The only negative is that she is very popular, and the wait time is often very long (45 mins to 1.5 hours). There is very limited seating in the waiting room, so get there early and bring a drink and a book!
