I had to use on- call with Dr. Baxley when I awoke with sharp stabbing pain in my left breastbone area. She talked me through differential diagnosis to rule out heart attack. She encouraged me to take aspirin, use ice/heat and see if that improves. If not, I was to call 911 or go to ED. It turned out I had severe gas pains in my rib cage.

I had dropped off a stool sample for diagnosis on a Friday. Dr. Baxley called me at 6:00 pm on Saturday with the diagnosis. I have Clostridium Difficile. Dr. Baxley informed me that she would call in the antibiotic I needed when the pharmacy opened the nest morning. I called the pharmacy and was informed they did not have the needed drug and insurance would not cover it. I called Dr. Baxley's office immediately. This was a Sunday morning. Dr. Baxley answered right away and we discussed our options. Dr. Baxley had her assistant come in early the next day to try and get the medication approved. Insurance would not cover. Dr. Baxley called in a different prescription that was covered. Dr. Baxley has been our primary care doctor for over 30 years. We were among her first patients. We love her.
