Patient Reviews (2)
I scheduled my first gynecological visit with Dr. Soares and within an hour of leaving her office I was searching for a new doctor. The office was overall unfriendly and caused me to feel confused and rushed. The check-in was difficult to find and the staff gave me no instructions. Dr. Soares spoke to me in a harsh tone and I felt as though she did not want to hear my questions. She actually told me to look up answers to my questions online! I was not comfortable and I will not be returning.

I am new to the area and had to rely on reviews to select a Doctor. I was incredibly upset with my visit. Dr. Soares was gruff and short with me. I went in for a routine physical and was unable to discuss any of my concerns with her due to her lack of bed-side manner. It's a very personal visit and I do not expect much, however a bit of sensitivity is important. Rather than inquiring about my concerns she argued with every bit of info I gave her. I will never return and do not recommend her.
