Our Carolina Care Highlight this week recognizes Dr. Karen Kimel-Scott from the Department of Medicine, Division of General Medicine and Clinical Epidemiology.
Here’s what one of Dr. Kimel-Scott’s patients had to say:
“This provider (Kimmel-Scott) was recommended by a friend/coworker of mine, and I am so grateful I acted on the recommendation. Dr. Kimmel-Scott is knowledgeable, patient, kind & understands how important it is for me to feel confident in my care. She listened to my concerns, without judgement, and respected some decisions and choices I wanted to make. She challenged me appropriately, but offered guidance or redirection when needed. This was the first provider experience in my adult life where I felt like my health & care [were] a conversation between Dr & Patient, not the typical one-way communication. I left feeling valued, helped, and my needs were met. I highly recommend Dr. Kimmel-Scott to anyone looking for a new PCP, especially those who may be afraid of healthcare or skeptics of the healthcare system.”
