Nurse practitioner provides thorough checkup

Some member reports on Angie's List leave us wondering if there's more to the story. Others, like this one, include lots of details. When you submit a review, be sure to include the particulars so other members know why to hire or steer clear of a health provider.

MEMBER: Heather Bray
PROVIDER: The Emory Clinic, Joseph Aguilar NP
CATEGORY: Atlanta Nurse Practitioners

"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."
