A rare find these days!

Dr Babbitt is knowledgeable and I am very impressed with the amount of time she spent with me explaining the whys, the hows and the history of the field of medicine that pertains to me. After having been laughed at by two prior doctors, it has been a blessing to have found her and a relief to know that I can finally get the help I need to improve the quality of my life!

Dr. Babbitt is thoughtful and listens. She brings the patient into a partnership with their care. I have chronic health issues that are not always obvious. We discuss them and she runs tests she believes to be useful in decision making. We discuss the range of possibilities in a way that helps me understand what might be happening without scaring me into worry. When what is happening is not clear, she moves immediately to rule out any high-risk health problems. When no serious problems are found, she works through low-risk treatments to identify potential explanations for my symptoms. She is very careful about when to refer to specialist. I appreciate her kind aggressiveness in respecting my health issues. I have had other doctors who ignored symptoms that could have been treated early but were left until their cause was painfully clear because the disorder had advanced. Because she takes time with each patient her punctuality starts off fine early but the wait can be long.

Horrible practice!

Beware of Juniper Springs Medical Center and their practice of raking their patients over the coals. You will be required to sign a "contract" which they will not provide you a copy of and will charge you a no show fee if you attempt to reschedule according to their "contract". It is an awful facility with snotty personnel.

Horrible office staff

After three attempts to reschedule an appointment they continue to charge me for a missed appointment. The office staff is absolutely horrible. Be prepared for a battle if you dare attempt to change an appointment. Absolutely the worst office staff I've run across in a medical facility.
