Ratings for Dr. Laura Bea Stevens
Dr. Laura deserves five stars. No Doc-in-the-box care. My employer signed me up for medical insurance with a high deductible which means cheeper for my employer and more out of pocket expense for me on the front end. Dr. Laura's office explained all the cost alternatives. I've had to pay some cash....and some very necessary lab test, but thankful I did.... I'm still here to talk about it thanks to Dr. Stevens early diagnosis. She is the bright light in my family's healthcare.
Doctor Laura Bea isnt greedy or incompetent. I visited her years ago and was advance warned time schedule typically falls behind largely due to how much time she gives patients. That is not a bad thing. Our family was seen together which is an experience unique to her practice. She only ordered tests that were necessary as agreed. She is as near to Marcus Welby as any of us could ever get. Perhaps throwback competency, value and quality of services is not for everyone.
She is calm and respectful! She is an MD so if she can't fix something she will refer you to a specialist. Her referrals are as good as gold. She catches most things the 1st time around. Very Smart and she has been in business for more then 35 years. Wonderful Doctor. It's great to have her on my side...
I did not have a good experience at dr Stevens office and unworldly recommend her at all. She sent me for a lot of totally unnecessary tests that were totally unrelated to my original health complaint. She told me that they were all routine at that she offers them to all her patients, and didn't give me any time to ask about the tests before she started them. My insurance told me they were totally unnecessary and refused to cover them. I received a bill from Dr Stevens office for close to $4000, but managed to negotiate and pay just under $1000. I never received a detailed, itemized bill from her office, only a handwritten note with the number written at the top. Very unprofessional. I've since seen two different doctors who both agreed that Dr Stevens gave me far too many tests that were not medically indicated.
Many comments left about wait time. They are all true. The wait time to see the doctor is long, but I prefer to wait to see someone who pays close attention to your health and that can't happen in a 5 minute meeting. Perhaps all who complain would rather see a doctor who is impatient to leave for their golf date and could care less about your health. They give you a prompt 3 minute physical and do nothing. Just hope you don't contract a serious disease. This doctor saved my life by early detection of a rare cancer. Because of Dr. Stevens I am alive today. I am absolutely sure that the 3 minute physical would have missed this and my children today would only have memories of their father. So the wait? Bring your ipad and enjoy some down time, it's pretty important stuff.
I love Dr. Stevens. Unlike the previous disgruntled employee comments...Dr. Stevens is sensitive and caring. She detected my heart & Gastritis issues early-on and probably saved my life. My family has seen her regularly for 25 years. She gives us all our full turn. She is chatty and the most interesting character. She is honest and probably underpaid....or not paid at all by greedy insurance companies.
