Review of Dr. Galen

- in Stoneham |

Dr. Galen is very thorough and caring. She went out of her way to call me at 9pm on a Thursday night and gave me her cell phone number. I truly appreciate her and her service to her customers. It is very hard to find a doctor that cares about patients like she does.

Review of Dr. Galen

- in Boston, MA |

Dr. Galen was absolutely wonderful. I'm 31 years old and am petrified of OBGYN exams but she absolutely made my exam and colpo a breeze. She was super sweet and gentle. She was confidential and made me feel comfortable. She explained everything in great detail about what she was going to do and as she was examining me she explained each step. She never hurt me in anyway even though it is a painful procedure, she was the best at it!! I am so grateful to have found her and highly recommend her.

Review of Dr. Bettencourt

- in North Reading, MA |

When I was 15/16 yrs old I had painful periods. My mom suggested birth control, but Dr. B insisted on doing a pelvic exam first. I was a victim of childhood abuse and had never even used a tampon before. Dr. B mocked me for telling her that I was experiencing pain, and even asked me "do you do drama?" to make fun of me for being "dramatic." She painfully, traumatically examined me. I was later diagnosed with vaginismus by a much more understanding Dr.

Review of Dr. Bettencourt

-Boston, MA |

I've only seen her once, but she is definitely one of the best doctors I have ever seen (any field). Probably in my top 3 in general and #1 for OB-GYN. I do tend to worry about my health and read internet resources so I always end up having a lot of questions for the doctor. She is sharp, listens, and I felt she showed respect for my concerns without pushing anything other than what I think are 'middle of the road' approaches. Also, the front desk administrator was approachable and professional.

Review of Dr. Bettencourt

- MA |

She is pushy for certain birth control, she does not explain any details of different birth controls nor of any other issue even when you ask. She has generic phrases and responses to everything. Her exams are the most uncomfortable I've ever experienced and I've been seen before by two other gynos. She makes everything feel rushed and poorly explained. She does not listen well to your concerns or questions.

Review of Dr. Laplante

- in North Reading, MA |

This doctor is the best. She is so caring, educated, and has called me every time I call the office for a prescription refill to see how I am doing. She truly cares and is very professional. Only problem I have is when I call the office they put me on hold and forget about me. I always have to call back.

Review of Dr. Witkowski

- in Saugus, MA |

Dr. Dan has been taking care of me for 21 years. He has delivered my three girls and now they are starting to go to him. He always takes his time and let's me ask ask all the questions I need. Sometimes appointments run a little late, but I know it's because he's giving another person the extra time they need. I love that he's caring and concerned and genuinely loves his job. I do not feel like a 15 min appt when he sees me like I do with some other doctors.

Review of Dr. Witkowski

- in Melrose, MA |

He is a excellent doctor and he makes you feel he cares for you he doesn't rush through the visit but listen carefully. He has been my doctor for 10 years no complaints at all. I recommend him if you want to be treated like a human not a number.

Review of Dr. Witkowski

- in Boston, MA |

Thirteen years ago Dr. Witkowski was the doctor on call when I gave birth to my daughter at Melrose Wakefield Hospital. The whole experience was horrible. But what made it worse was Dr. Witkowski standing at my feet as I was trying to push my daughter out. He actually stood there with his arms crossed and a scowl on his face. That was my first child and I will never forget that.
