I have been working with Carmen for several years. Most recently for followup from complications resulting from ACDF surgery. Carmen worked with me through a very slow and tedious recovery. She listened, made sure I saw the specialists I needed to, and provided the support I needed throughout the last 11 months.
She is very thorough, listens to your concerns, and is very good at responding through the portal. Carmen is very knowledgeable; she cares a lot and wants to help patients get better and stay healthy.

She is knowledgeable - efficient, calm, and takes charge!
Because she LISTENS to understand accurately and explains things.
She is awesome, explains things well and she listens to me.
She's very attentive, which I appreciate very much as someone who took a long time to make a visit to a doctor's office out of disinterest in the past. She asks important questions, and I can also ask off topic questions for that visit and not be blown off. If it seems like it needs a follow-up or a specialty care visit, she also always gives me the info to make an appointment for them when needed. I was late one time by almost 20 minutes, and she was understanding of why, and still saw me - and didn't even show any disinterest or anger/frustration during that appointment. She's personally my favorite doctor I've ever visited, and I would happily recommend her to anyone.
She cares!! She’s thorough. She doesn’t rush you.

Carmen is amazung, very thorough and friendly throughout
I truly like Carmen and appreciate her as my PA. I want a female and this is the only way I can get one. She is great. My daughter will also be seeing her.
The same reasons as listed previously. She might be nice, but she is still just skimming the surface. She doesn't listen to the problems brought to her. I mean, shes a general med PA, so I cant expect much else. Everything is a referral. Just go to her to pay 2 copays. That's optum.
She was professional and genuinely interested in me and my concerns.
She was very nice and thorough
She is not certified with Tricare and could mot treat me. I was told that they found out a week prior to my appointment but I was not contacted. I wasted my time coming in.
Seemed very knowledgeable and sincere.
