What a great experience!

I was looking for a new physician online and somehow was directed to Dr. Armstrong. I had no medical issues or concerns, just wanted to have a doctor "in place" in case something was to come up. I had never just gone into a physician's office to "interview" them as a possible doctor. Dr. Armstrong turned out to be the perfect fit for me! I waited less than 5 minutes for my appointment, then she spent nearly 45 minutes with me going over my medical history, reviewing my meds, and putting all of that information into her computer for future reference. After a very short physical (blood pressure, etc), she suggested a couple of tests to obtain baseline data. Her manner was excellent! She was neither too casual nor too clinical, and she put me completely at ease. I should also add that the office staff was very friendly as well. This is the first time I have ever been welcomed to a doctor's practice! I almost can't wait to be sick!

Five Stars

I would recomend Dr. Armstrong to anyone. My children and myself have been patients of her for seven years and have found her to have an excellant bedside manner. Dr. Armstrong really cares about her patients and takes her time with them during each and every appointment. There have been times when I've needed her help after hours and have never had to wait long for her to get in touch with me after calling her answering service. This doctor is awesome!
