I have numerous health issues and due to insurance I had to find a new physician. The new doctor was Dr. Southard, she is the most awesome and caring doctor I have ever had. She takes time, she answers all questions, she is truly concerned with her patients. I HIGHLY recommend her as your family practice doctor with no reservations!! I had to move out of state and cried at my last appointment. Do not hesitate to choose her as your primary care physician, you will not regret it!!

I see Dr. Southard for general checkups, physicals, and wellness. She has a remarkably kind and empathetic demeanor and is very understanding. When I'm in for a routine physical, she is always encouraging, whether my health worries are minor or serious. For general practice, I would highly recommend Dr. Southard to anyone.
