Most Understand & Compassionate Doctor

After months of my health declining with my old endocrinologist, I finally decided to see Dr. Stosel and she changed my life. I finally found a doctor that actually listens to me and is compassionate about what I'm going through. She gave me so much of my life back and also gave me hope.

I had been to many doctors before Dr. Stosel. None of them were able to help me. Dr. Stosel took the time to really listen to me and was able to figure out what was going on with me. I feel so much better since I have been under her care.

Dr. Stosel has been my doctor for a year now. She is the most caring, thorough doctor I have ever had. She spends time listening to my concerns and explains everything in detail. The office is busy but the staff is always friendly and I never feel rushed. I would highly recommend. Doctor Stosel in my opinion is the very best. There is about a 20 minute wait, which is not bad compared with other offices and she apologizes and makes me feel like she values my time. Her office manager Shelley is extremely helpful.

Staff needs to be changed

I first have to say that I have a great amount of respect for Dr. Stosel. She is professional, courteous and is very thorough. For her staff, they are very slow to respond to voicemails, they don't document things correctly and really make it a challenge to book appointments. Due to the incompetence of her staff, I will no longer be going to Dr. Stosel. It is a shame because I really like Dr. Stosel. If you change your staff, I would definitely come back.
