Beil of Chapel Hill had been seeing the same primary care doctor for more than 20 years when she decided it was time for convenience to trump stability. Rather than drive the miles to her former doctor’s office, she made an appointment for her annual physical with Julie Lindsey, MD, a family medicine doctor, whose office was located just minutes from Beil’s job as an operations analyst. She was immediately impressed.
“I was able to get an appointment very quickly,” Beil recalled about that initial visit last year. “I got right in on the day and time that I wanted.” Once at the office, Beil said, “the reception staff were all very nice, and I got called back almost right away. I was also really impressed by the medical assistant who took my blood pressure. She was phenomenal.”
