[...] Dr PAAUW is A-1.
With this provider, and clinic staff, my health care needs have been taken care of with excellence.
My primary physician has been *Doug Paauw for the past 30 years. He is absolutely WONDERFUL & attentive. He is so busy that it sometimes takes longer than I like to get an appointment but when I need to reach him he is always available by email. He is OUTSTANDING!
Nothing needed improvement. Visit was everything I'd hoped it would be. If the "provider" didn't ask me about something it's because he knows my medical history and doesn't have to ask. If there's something I needed addressed, I would bring it up. He welcomes my questions and listens carefully.
Dr Paauw is a valuable doctor. He makes you feel important & gives you his utmost attention.
*Dr. Doug Paauw is always helpful, understanding & knowledgeable. I can always depend on him for excellent care.
