Rating Feedback for Dr. Chofay (1656930)

The rating:
'Dr. Chofay seems very knowledgeable and is always willing to refer to another provider if she needs more/specialized information and patient needs more specialized care. She orders lab tests and diagnostic procedures prudently. Other MD's in office willing and qualified to cover her patients when she is not available. She occasionally seems to dominate office visit with her speak, but perhaps it is her way of offering the patient as much info as possible. Patient needs to be assertive and confirm that MD understands patient concerns. VERY personable with great 'bedside manner'. She truly does allow patient to actively participate in her medical care. Office staff/front desk personnel need to practice their "people skills" (especially when office is very busy) ... and most of all, be cognizant of patient confidentiality!! Remember HIPPA?'

I completely agree!! Love Dr. Chofay, but there is one particular very friendly, yet very loud long term front desk associate (we all know who she is!) who needs to be cognizant of privacy and the importance of confidentiality. She announces aloud the reason for your visit and recaps personal information such as home address and health insurance information. Uncomfortable and inappropriate!
