I've gone to Dr. Rader for over 20 years. I used to love going to see her and always rated her 5 stars. Things have changed. First she started using electronic medical records. She now spends more time looking at the computer than the patient. Then she hired a scribe to chart for her. This didn't help. It just brought a stranger into the room. She still spends most of her time looking at the computer and talking to the scribe. Next she sold her practice to Covenant. Now things are horrible. Covenant replaced the licensed nurses with unlicensed medical assistants. The medical assistants do not know what they are doing. The office is more focused on collecting data for the government than they are on providing quality patient care. I don't think Dr. Rader is happy either.
