I had a very bad experience with a doctor several years ago I asked a few people who would be a good doctor to go to, a friend suggested Dr. Alvina Driscoll, and I have been with her ever since. She is kind compassionate takes time to listen and has helped me in so many ways. I truly can't say enough good things about her as a Doctor and a person. I feel so fortunate to have herfor my doctor I highly recommend her to everyone!

I can not trust her. Second full-term (and healthy) pregnancy with her she stripped my membranes before my due date without asking. Extremely painful and violating. I tried to change ob before 2nd pregnancy and was denied by staff, that should have been a sign. Completed last appointment (follow-up) and went back to a local GP. If I go back to that office (depends on which receptionist/staff member you get if it's a pleasant experience) I will refuse to return to her care

I've been seeing Dr Driscoll for over 10 years now and as a young woman it's always scary to know if you're being given the right advise and who to trust. I would trust her with my life and have. She's always so caring and considerate and is excellent at explaining any procedure I'd need. She feels more like family and I actually look for reasons to go see her. Who knew I'd actually enjoy going to the Dr. But she makes it a great and painless experience. She's amazing.

Dr. Driscoll went above and beyond her call of duty. She noticed a mole on my back during my annual exam and referred me to a dermatologist. It was cancer. My surgeon said "Dr. Driscoll probably saved your life"

I have been a patient of Dr. Driscoll's since 1997. She has helped me with birth control options before starting a family, family planning and care/birth of 3 children, general female health and most recently a hysterectomy and bladder sling. I recommend Dr. Driscoll to anyone looking for a physician that listens to patient concerns, has professional manners, friendly and warm conversation, highly skilled and practiced and considers all health options before taking drastic measures. BEST DR!

Dr Driscoll was absolutely awful to me as a patient. Because there isn't enough room here for the whole story, I just say she was mean, and her actions caused my daughter to have to spend a week in the NICU due to an infection. I give her one star because the system won't let me give her zero. Not only do I not recommend her, but I would suggest going to a different ob practice altogether.
