Referred by doctor due to serious shift in my thyroid values. Hoisingtons 1st available appointment was in 7 months. Ridiculous. I'll find someone ony own

Top notch

Dr Kara is a very caring and friendly Doctor. She spends a great amount of time with you, and listens to you. I would recommend her to anyone.

Good Doctor but bad office experience

Don't be late to your appointment or they will try to make you reschedule. I had to wait months to get an appointment and then when I was a little late arriving they wanted to reschedule. I told them not to bother I'll use another doctor. The office staff did not seem to care that she lost a patient over being a little late. She is a good doctor but not worth that kind of hassle, especially when I have waited long periods of time in the past to see her.

receptionist extremely rude and abrupt.

I called to ask for appointmen, as soon as I asked if Dr. was taking new patients she said, " no," as I began to ask another question I realized she had hung up on me, without a goodbye, thank you for calling, nothing. Almost glad Dr. Hoisington isn't taking patients if this is how they are treated.
