While this was my first time meeting Dr.Ukena, she made me feel extremely comfortable and showed genuine care for my health concerns. She also called me right away when my blood work results came in, which I truly appreciated. I look forward to seeing her again soon as she helps me get my health back on track!

Dr. Ukena is always professional, kind, and good at communicating what's going on with my diabetes. She is hands down the endocrinologist that I've had the best professional relationship since I was diagnosed 12 years ago. In this visit, my immediate concerns were addressed and we made some long term plans, too.

Reviewed on July 9, 2018 7:00 PM

Unfortunately offices are arranged with the doctor at the computer, back turned. Two doctors have expressed THEIR discomfort with this. Dr. Ukena twisted around to face me. In the past doctors sat, at desks, facing the patient, with record-keeping materials in front of them. Dr. Ukena did what was needed to overcome the problem.

She was a very good provider.

Reviewed on April 22, 2018 7:00 PM

I was the first appointment scheduled (8am) but was not brought back to see a provider until 8:25am, which made me late for work. the only explanation I got was that the nurse who took vitals was late, so I had to see the doctor late. Another nurse should have filled in. Set a bad tone for the appointment.

Great visit; I was given information about my choices. Lab results considered too.

I've been going to this office for many years but I used to see Dr. X, who has moved away. Dr. Ukena has been fantastic, really knowledgeable about advances in diabetes treatment as well as my history in particular, which is amazing considering I've only seen her twice. I'd really liked Dr. X and I've been so relieved that the new doctor is working out so well too. this office has also always been terrific about scheduling, prescription refills, and everything. keep up the good work!
