She was rude, didn't want to answer my questions, and made me feel uncomfortable. She had no bedside manner or compassion for my needs. I have changed doctors and very glad I did since I now receive better care and treatment.

I saw her a few times for obstetrics. She was very condescending and hateful toward my questions and concerns. I refused to see her again, even if she was the only doctor available. There was no professionalism demonstrated at all.

Dr Abby Smith has been my physician for many years. She is very thorough, is great at explaining any concerns she may have, answers questions that I ask and makes me aware of how much she cares. I have faith in her abilities and trust her because I know that she has my best interest at heart. I am thankful that she and her staff are reachable and quick to respond when necessary. My experience with them is most professional.
