Great Doctor

Dr. Hulst has been my doctor for over 10 years and I have had nothing but pleasant experiences with her and her staff. She answers questions promptly and is always able to get us right in. I feel like we get excellent care and referrals when needed.

Glorified Midwife

I have been seeing Lynda for approximately 6 years. If she reads this, and I hope she does, I second the motion to the review entitled READ THIS! She might even think I wrote that one, which I did not. The last 3 times I have been to see her she was aloof and acted very irritated with me. I am not sure if it is the drug she prescribed which I cannot take due to it side effects, or because I tried to talk to her about feeling rushed through every office visit. It is pretty obvious she does not want me for a patient anymore after my final visit 3 days ago. I talked to the nurse about a referral to a proctologist for a suspected bleeding hemorrhoid. The nurse assured me Lynda could check for this. Wrong! She walked in the room, barely said 2 words to me other than "I am not a proctologist or a gastroenterologist. I am a GP." I apologized, and said I did not know she did not do rectal exams. I continued to explain my symptoms since being on the 1,500 mg of Amoxicillin, which I should not have been prescribed, and was stupid enough to take, due to a history of ulcerative colitis. I presume I was not getting on with the show fast enough, because I went to lay on my back so I could then roll to my side, when she very impatiently directed me to lay on my side. I guess she did her best with the exam, considering the condition my lower colon is now in. She then referred me to a gastroenterologist, said I could get dressed, and walked out. DONE!

Please Read!!

Would NOT recommend this doctor to anyone, especially someone who takes their health care seriously! I have been a patient there for over 4 years and have not left once feeling as if I got the care I needed. First impressions don't always last...Time to get into see her can be difficult but its like that at a lot of places. Main problems are her beside manor and lack of communication. Seems she cant wait to leave the room as soon as she arrives. At most she spent less then five mins with me, then leaves having to track a nurse down to answer questions. Quick to push off patients on to specialists with out trying to figure it out herself. Does not listen to questions being asked let alone listening at all to anything. I have been left waiting in rooms while she " forgot" she had a patient. Received wrong diagnoses, within the last few months I have to see many other doctors due to the lack of care. Sounds all negative but people need to know what they are getting themselves into. I m usually not one to complain but I leave this place feeling like ive been blown off and disregarded.

seek a different medical practice - too many errors

Terrible experience with the entire staff for this practice. If you call them on a Thursday with a major concern you will not get a call back until the following Monday. This is very discouraging when dealing with medical issues. This happened twice in one month. Also, the notes kept by the staff are frequently riddled with errors. Everything from the wrong dosage of medicine to the last time you spoke with the Dr or anyone on the staff. Sometimes after a 3 day wait period two different nurses would call me and act like they had no clue the other one had just called. No organization. They seem to be confused as to how to use their own computer system and frequently apologize for it. I would not trust myself or any of my immediate family / friends to this practice. Not professional.
