I truly appreciated that she was able to fax my prescription ASAP!!

The check in nurse did my intake and told me to undress and she would be back in a minute. All the nurses and NP were talking loudly and laughing around the central desk as if having party. After 15 minutes i felt she had forgotten about me since the door was closed so I walked out in my gown and asked if she was coming back. She said the NP would be in shortly (who was also part of the gab fest) and it still took Christine another 4-5 minutes to show up. She was nice once she did but this is totally inappropriate behavior for all office staff when any patients are present. I was raised by 2 MDs and they would have fired everyone for carrying on that way!

I waited a long time to see her. I got there on time. Early actually and it was a long time before I saw her. Usually doctors will apologize for the delay when they walk in the room but she didn't even acknowledge it.

I had a phone appointment with Dr. Besel who took care of a prescription problem that could have caused a gap between receiving my refill and my medicine running out which could have cause a problem. This immediate response has made sure that the medicine will be delivered before the last of the current medicine. I appreciate her promptness of this matter.

She was very thorough, caring. patient and understanding. I would definitely recommend her to family and friends.
June 24, 2022
I was told my blood pressure was a bit high when it was checked at the start of my appointment . However , my blood pressure was not checked again before leaving the medical office , which made me concern and upset that the provider would put that fear in my mind while I'm pregnant and not check again to be sure if it was back to normal . She also gave me a verbal " to do list " before baby arrives , but no information / details on how to start or complete 2 of those tasks.

Rude front desk staff. Provider did not seem knowledgeable about my medical condition or didn't see the importance of treatment. Intake nurse was very pleasant, listened to my concerns and actually asked questions to get to know my condition better.

She was just extremely empathetic and made sure I knew what to expect and all my questions were answered

Christine has always made me feel comfortable and confident. Female exams in the past with other doctors have left me feeling vulnerable. I love her mannerisms and her knowledge. She makes me number 1 and the exam second.
