MEMBER: Heather Bray
PROVIDER: The Emory Clinic, Joseph Aguilar NP
CATEGORY: Atlanta Nurse Practitioners
DESCRIPTION OF WORK: "I had a concern about my thyroid function and needed a general checkup."
MEMBER COMMENTS: "This was my first experience with a nurse practitioner. I had recently moved to Atlanta and went to The Emory Clinic on Clifton Road because it was on my insurance. When I called to make an appointment, they said a doctor wasn't available for a few weeks but I could see a nurse practitioner right away.
"I saw nurse practitioner Joseph Aguilar. He was patient, attentive and listened to all my concerns. Overall, this was probably the best doctor visit I've had - and I didn't even see a doctor. If you're going for a checkup, it's perfect. Nurse practitioners don't seem to be in as big of a hurry as doctors."
