    How was your appointment with Dr. Follwell?

    Apr 28, 2022
    For some reason my review keep being deleted so I’ll keep posting. Dr Follwell is awesome! He is a great experienced physician and I highly recommend him. Emma was awesome, Eileen was awesome! However they have one sour apple in their group that made me want to go to another surgeon SHANNON. Very nasty attitude towards Dr Follwell patients. I’m not the only one that felt she needs to go I spoke to other patients in a group and she has been nasty to several. Shannon spoke to me as if I was a child me being a nurse for over 14 years myself I know she needs to do better! Shannon is the only person in that office that needs to go! Then I was recently told by one of Dr. Follwell previous patients that she is his wife so we are just going to pray for him such a nice talented man should not have to deal with such an attention seeking woman with a bad attitude.
