She is engaging and you don't have to wait long once you arrive, but none of them - Dr. Aitcheson nor her medical assistants wash their hands before they touch on you or stick things in your mouth - very disgusting. Let me see you wash your hands. There's nothing wrong with clean hands, even if you have to wash them after every patient, 8 to 10 times a day. We pay you enough to deserve clean hands. Just do it.
Dr. Aitcheson has been my internist since. 1988! She is absolutely the best clinical minded, excellent rapport physician I have ever met! New patients do have to wait a few months for a new patient appointment to see her, but once established as a patient she is extremely available to. See you if an issue arises! She is very thorough and is very astute to the patients need. I became a physician assistant during my time as her patient and she is the doctor I try to emulate in my approach to the patient needs and there clinical, diagnostic and treatment needs! The person who wrote that she wasn't worth the weight or not into new patents was either having a bad day r needs to understand that the person who Dr. Aitcheson or her staff is attending to why she is on hold is every bit as important as the woman that is on phone waiting thinks she is! Very much WORTH THE WAIT! All my friends are now her patients and it is unanimous among all of us.....Best internist there is hands down!
Although highly recommended, appointment staff - after a 20 minute wait on hold- was disinterested and apparently there is no cancellation or wait list option. No appointment available for 4 months - no options, no choices, no assistance. Too bad. Don't waste time on this doctor - she evidently is content with her present annual income and doesn't need to consider other potential patients. One review mentioned a shift in support staff - apparently even current patients have noted less patient- oriented office personnel.
