Review of Dr. Schwartz

- in Lakeland, FL |

Dr. Schwartz is very experienced in her own field plus is also knowledgeable in other medical fields. She is concerned about her patients' overall health, not just the reason you had an appointment with her. I have complete confidence in her and am very grateful that I have finally found such a good, caring and friendly doctor.

Review of Dr. Cody


I guess everybody's mileage varies but my experience with Doctor Cody was in every way very positive. I opted for colonoscopy with no anesthetic so I was awake during the procedure. I actually got to watch the video and do Q&A with the doctor as he performed the procedure. I joked with the doctor and his staff as he did the Roto-Rooter thing. They were not only helpful but absolutely Charming from beginning to finish. And I'm a grumpy old man. By my Reckoning very nice people.

Review of Dr. Alford

-Maitland, FL |

After months of ER visits for painful, hemorrhagic ovarian cysts, I had decided to give Dr. Alford a try- what a NIGHTMARE!! Not only was he short with me (and flat-out RUDE) but he dismissed all ideas of me having endometriosis (a diagnosis that I, an RN, had spent months researching). Instead, he started me on LoLoestrin and sent me on my merrry way- which of course, didn't work. I'm now preparing for an ex-lap surgery for (you guessed it) endometriosis w/ another doctor! Stay far away!

Review of Dr. Schwartz

-Brooklyn, NY |

I LOVE Dr. Schwartz! She is so kind, helpful, and informative. I feel a very high level of trust and comfort with her that I have not ever experienced with any other gyno. I'd recommend her over and over again.

Review of Dr. Bielecki

- in Lakeland, FL |

After a few urgent care visits to Watson Clinic and being treated by several doctors, Dr. Bielecki by far is the best of all. He is very knowledgeable and professional and has treated both our emergency ailments correctly. He is a credit to the Watson Clinic Staff.

Review of Dr. Alford

- in lakeland, fl |

I have always disliked going to the gynocoligist. But when I had a problem, I knew I had to go and Dr. Alford was recommended to me. First of all, everyone at his office was friendly, gentle and kind as well as professional. Dr. Alford was so soft spoken, kind and understanding, I will never be able to thank him. He saw me thru a potentially fatal situation with knowledge, information and above all tender care. If you think there aren't any gynocoligist out there who will take the time to listen

Review of Dr. Simek

-Lakeland, FL |

My 30 year old son saw Dr.Simek today for a treadmill stress test, due to bouts of cyanosis and near syncope, accompanied by chest pains and difficulty breathing. Dr Simek was rude, commenting on my son's "baggy shorts". They were men's walking shorts from Kohl's and were belted at the waist. Any bagginess was because my son I saw underweight. Then he commented about my son's big feet (13.5) hitting the front of the treadmill, and made sure to comment on them being "name brand shoes". RUDE.
