    The provider was great. The MA who roomed me only took my blood pressure no other vitals and took 6 pounds of what the scale said which I thought was odd so I looked and that was my weight last time. Just was a little weird to me.

    This was a follow up appointment after a new med was prescribed. It was a good appointment but beyond that, Dr. Rugge arranged for me to talk to someone there in a mental health area as I had a few questions regarding services available. I was pleased with the information I received from a very professional young woman.
