Check in was quick and easy via kiosk. Within 5 minutes the nurse brought me to an exam room, started preliminary history and reviewed any medication changes. Shortly the doctor entered the exam room, discussed my recent lab work and how it pertained to my medical problem. We discussed my concerns and questions. A follow-up appointment and lab tests were scheduled.

This was my first visit with Dr. Denshaw. He was referred to me by my PC provider. My husband and I are elated that we found a doctor who gave us information and explanations that were clear. Dr. Denshaw took his time in answering the few questions I had. I had only a few because Dr. Denshaw covered my CKD/stage 3 moderate so very, very well. He is a teacher. He is concerned about his patients' welfare. This was demonstrated with the time he took with me--not rushed--and with his follow up phone call the next morning and wanting me to take an educator's class. What a gem!

I never feel rushed during my appointment and we discuss any questions I have. He also makes sure I have the info to contact him with any additional concerns. I highly recommend him.

Very knowledgeable & easy to talk with. I didn't feel like i was "bothering" him with my questions & i didn't feel "talked down to" like some doctors. He gave me time to ask questions & wasn't in a huge hurry. Pleasant, kind doctor who treats his patients respectfully like people who have lives.

Need to talk to people as if a child could understand I am not in the medical field and do not understand the medical terminology.

Dr. was very courteous and respectful.

This was my first visit to this provider. The staff was very welcoming and explained the necessary forms and procedures. The nurse was very courteous and efficient performing the preliminary checks and taking personal information to update my chart. There was only a short wait before the doctor came in and introduced himself. The doctor took a lot of time explaining my current medical condition and explained various ways to maintain the condition. He took time to answer our questions. A follow-up appt. was made and he suggested I meet with a nutrition nurse to explain dietary methods to regulate the condition. I was very pleased with the doctor and the interaction between us.

I have never had a bad experience......One nurse that I usually ask for or returns my calls is Jennifer and she is wonderful. Very caring and comforting and always get back to you
