Patient Experiences

August 06, 2021
I am a new patient. I switched to Dr. Rushton because my previous Dr. just seemed on overload of patients. Looks like Dr. R will have a very full and busy schedule but I totally appreciated having her asking and listening during my meeting with her.

Tamara, Dr. Rushton's nurse is very kind and helpful and always followed up with me.

After living and attending what we thought were the best providers in several different states, we now are convinced that Asante in general and the physicians in particular, are indeed the best ever. Professional, compassionate and at times good fun to be with, Asante is our favorite and we extoll your quality to friends and family.

Dr. Rushton was outstanding. It was my first appointment with her and she took time to get to know me from a medical standpoint and personal standpoint as well. She listened to my questions and did not seem to be in a hurry to get me out of the exam room. I was impressed with her knowledge and ability to make sure I understood. Impressed with Dr. Rushton!!

I saw Michele Rushton as a new patient last week. I made the appointment about 4 months ago. I was very impressed with her knowledge of my history and of services/suggestions/additional items from which I could benefit. For example, I asked her about being sleepy during the day and she mentioned a different kind of sleep apnea that I could discuss with my sleep apnea doctor which might solve the problem.
