How likely are you to recommend Dr. Nance?

(Select your rating)
Kara Nance & her office staff were very nice to me during the visit. The office is nice. I didn’t have to wait long. There is a convenient optional online patient portal where you can obtain test results & even ask the doctor questions, & she is nice enough to answer them herself. To get the most out of having Dr. Nance as a doctor, it is important first that you understand what kind of doctor office this is so you can use her services to your advantage. This is a doctor who specializes in (1) calorie counseling, when being overweight is due to calorie over-consumption only, but not from hormone problems or other medical problems, & (2) diabetes management or specialized insulin level problems. They do run standard CBC & Chemistry labs & pap smears. However, this is not a primary care doctor nor a gynecology doctor. If you ask non-calorie related primary care or gynecology/women’s health questions, they will not answer those questions & instead tell you to see another doctor instead.
