Dr. Rockwell has been my primary care doctor for five years. She's friendly, generally knowledgable about basic hormone maintenance, and is overall a fine doctor. She's frequently out of town but I've never had a problem getting in to see one of the other doctors in the office (I especially recommend Heather Lee Holmstrom).
In my experience, she's not a great doctor if your needs go beyond the basics. I struggled with chronic pain and sleep issues for years and her advice was to "take a vacation," "sleep more," "work on the computer less," and "try acupuncture or a chiropractor." As a grad student, most of those suggestions weren't realistic for my lifestyle or budget. At our last exchange she told me she "didn't have any more suggestions" for how to help me. I sought a different PCP after that.
All the office staff are great and I've only had one negative experience with a nurse. It's important to note that this is a teaching facility, so physicians often have students with them. I was always given the option to meet with the physician privately without the student present.
