    I am excited about my new doctor. My experience was awesome!!
    I have never been treated with the kindness and compassion this office showed me by any other doctor I've been to. I was completely pleased when I left.
    Dr. Kermis has a great bedside manner.
    This was, hands down, one of the best experiences I've had in a doctor's office! As the sister of a physician (and a former medical secretary), I know how tough keeping a practice running smoothly can be. This should be the template for how offices should be run nationally. Kudos to you and your hospital system.????????????
    Dr. Kermis is the best doctor I have received care from. I say that particularly because she does care. I have seen many doctors and she by far has the best bedside manner and professionalism but also is very personable.
    The staff was extremely friendly and times. They actually took me in when I was actually visiting or another reason. They gave me very good recommendation and referral and I will definitely go to them again.
    This was my first visit with Dr. Kermis and I am so glad I chose her to be my new PCP.
    Dr. Kermis one o' the best doctors of ever seen... the entire experience was incredible and I've recommended her to already everybody I know. That's all I could say about her.
    Dr. Kermis and her nurse are always very helpful, kind, professional and make me feel exceptionally comfortable every time I need to go see them.
    One worker at the front desk, isn't very welcoming and always tells you to "go see the other receptionist" to get checked in, it comes across very rude and like she doesn't have the time to be bothered doing her job
    Love my doc and the staff
    Grateful that my immediate concerns were addressed without my weight being mentioned
    Dr. Kermis was nonjudgmental, efficient but still spent enough time with me, respectful, and friendly.
    Dr. Kermis was very knowledgeable, she listens. She was very patient, very kind. And she did everything that she needed to do to make sure that you know that I was safe and that I didn't have any serious health issues and she did follow up with me after I went to see a specialist and she didn't have that to do. So, I really appreciate this.
    Dr Kermis was professional, knowledgeable, energetic, and friendly. I look forward to my follow up care with her.
    Dr. Kermis was excellent. She's been the best physician that I have ever had.
    My dr and nurse were very thorough, thoughtful and the follow up was outstanding
    Dr Kermis was extremely attentive and knowledgeable. She also has an incredible bedside manner which is so so appreciated.
    Staff very friendly and courteous. Very busy place but manage it well.
    Called and got appointment same day. Fast, efficient visit.
    Good stuff
    This was the 1st time seeing Dr Kermis and I was very impressed with her knowledge and she made me feel very comfortable.
    It's been a very long time since I have seen a general physician who I felt truly wanted to hear what I had to say, and who went out of their way to let me know that they had a lot of availability for patients, and the first time I've known in a very long time, probably a decade, that if I needed to see my general physician for any illness, even if it was same-day, having that confidence and relief that I can see her was amazing, and I feel very optimistic about having Rachael Kermis as my physician from no
    Yes everybody in the Baton Rouge clinic helped me a lot and saying what I'm saying asking and doing. And there very prompt about the doctor t the front desk all the people in their helped me excellent. And i give them a ten.
    Front desk staff were slow, despite long line of waiting customers at the Registration desk. Would recommend a more efficient desk staff. I am a new patient and provided the nurse with names of my previous doctors (a specialist and PCP) in another state as well as the names of the practices they were associated with. She had written them down incorrectly despite my being clear as to the spelling (spelled names out multiple times). Nurse was not detail oriented and was not careful (careless) thus she made th
