Richmond, VA |
I felt rushed and dismissed. When I asked questions for clarity I was interrupted and nothing was explained to me in detail. I will not be going back.

Knowledgeable, but I felt rushed with my questions. Staff not compassionate. Left with more questions than answers.

Pregnant with twins after having a stillbirth at 34 weeks.My whole pregnancy none of the other perinatal Dr's or even my OB seemed to think it was a big deal.they all thought it would've been okay to induce me at the normal 38-40 weeks even though that was potentially dangerous, with my history.At 35 weeks, the appointment was with Dr. H and she called my OB immediately to schedule the birth bc the situation was risky.so thankful for her decision.my twins are fine.she was the only one who cared.
She identified a heart defect in my baby quickly enough to where I was taken up for surgery asap at 31wks, he spent a month and some change in the NICU and is now 5yrs old and healthy, had he gone longer being oxygen deprived he could have been seriously brain damaged or even died. So grateful for her!

After receiving some pretty devastating test results from my OB. I contacted the Henrico Doctors office-the scheduler got me in the next day and reassured me that Dr. Head would answer all my questions. The day of my appointment Dr. Head provided an abundance of information that put us at ease. I appreciate everything this office has done for me ? from the scheduler answering the phone to the genetic counselor to Dr. Head. I will recommend this office to everyone!!

Very knowledgeable but felt as though she was very dismissive. Appointment felt rushed and impersonal. Calling to make or reschedule appointments is horrible. You can wait more than 30 minutes on hold before you even talk to anyone.
