Review for Dr. Knox

Dr. DeVries has been my OB doc for about 20 years. He has always been courteous, professional, and informative. He takes time to answer my questions even if I have a long list for him. He remains my primary physician, even though I am way past childbearing age.

Review for Dr. DeVries

Expert advice- in this case it wasn’t for surgery like I expected. I respect a surgeon who doesn’t jump to surgery too quickly.

Review for Dr. Clare

Out side of my appointment being late. Dr. Clare explained what was going on and made suggestions to get a better idea of what was going on. I liked that he asked me questions on what type of treatment I wanted and then we discussed what the best option was.
