WakeMed Patient - February 2020

Dr. Daw''s nurse (Ruth?) always responds to phone calls quickly and fully.

WakeMed Patient - February 2020

Attentiveness and personalization of communication and care.Dr Daw has always - done his homework - coming into the visit having reviewed my history and knowing me before he walks in the room. I highly value this compared to Physicians who seem to be reading the chart on the way in the door.

WakeMed Patient - February 2020

The entire visit was excellent, from the greeting at the front desk, to the time with the nurse, and then with Dr. Daw.

WakeMed Patient - February 2020

Dr. Daw is always outstanding.
