Dr Phelan is excellent. She listens, makes sure she understands what you are telling her and sticks with you to figure things out. She knows me and my medical history and verifies her info. When I am in the examining room with her I never feel rushed. She makes me feel like I am her most important patient. She brings a joy to her job as does her staff!

I wish my doctor's nurse was a little less talkative. A little unprofessional.

I am getting older and have more problems that are age-related. Dr. Phelan has been my MD for 30+ years. She knows my history and is always right on top of everything.
