Dr Stokes is great and certainly listened , but the follow up was poor to say the least. She had agreed that a surgical procedure was necessary, but I was unable to get the promised letter. Her secretary kept promising to fax the letter to the surgeon, but never did the follow up. Now two months later we are still being told it is in Dr Stokes computer. The surgeon's secretary has been promised on a daily basis for the last month that the letter would be faxed. I have also been calling and getting the same answer - it will be faxed now.

Dr. Stokes treated me for Lyme disease and Babesios a few years back. She knew more about Lyme than any other doctor I met and really listened to what I had to say. She uses test results as part of the diagnostic picture, but doesn't rely on them to the exclusion of other diagnostic evidence.

I first saw Dr. Stokes in early 2012 when I was so sick with Lyme disease no other doctor could properly treat me. I was only 31 years old, very healthy and had literally woke up one day and wasn't able to walk anymore. Every doctor in the area thought I was crazy. Dr.Stokes reviewed my blood work, discovered not only did I have Lyme, but also babesia (co infection of Lyme) and psoriatic arthritis. She is very knowledgable and knows what she is talking about. She is a busy woman, but she won't steer you wrong. I am thankful that I found her.

 |  Wait time was unacceptable.  |  show details

The wait time in this office is routinely over 3 hours. Evidently the patients time is not as valuable as theirs.

I have had Lyme disease for over ten years. Most physicians prescribe a two week course of antibiotics & write you off as cured. Dr. Stokes may seem quiet & clinical in her approach, but I think she is just shy. What's important is she knows Lyme & will work around your HMOrestrictions. She called me personally when she didn't like my blood studies, offered to waive her fee & even sent me a coupon for 70% off on lab work when my insurance expired. She is a rare gem in her field.

Dr. Stokes was a no-show to my appointment and made it very difficult to reschedule. She made everything seem like an imposition and like I was waisting her time, and I was rushed through my exam. She obviously doesn't value her patients or her practice, and I will be surprised if it survives another year. I do not trust, and you shouldn't either.

She looks at you as a human, not as a medical case. Mens sana in humanum sane
