I felt like the doctor paid more attention to her computer than me and did not take any of my questions or concerns seriously. I called the office two days in a row because bleeding had started at five months, and was told I come in for a fetal heartbeat if that "made me feel better". Was told to go home and rest. I lost my baby two days later. I felt this was extremely negligent as nothing was done to help prevent this loss.

I'd give a 4star but I've never had so many issues with a gyno office. First the 2 receptionist checking you in are rude & just constantly mad looking. 1 time when I was waiting to get called in I actually heard them talking bad about another client when they left. Their answering phone service NEVER picks up. So if you need to cancel or reschedule forget it. Her nurses are quick, short and cold. No compassion whats so ever. Dr.W her self is nice &caring but does not remember anything.

I made my initial appointment with her and had to wait almost 3 months to get in. She was definitely worth the wait! She's a great combination of personable and professional, and always made me feel very at ease during my appointments with her. She always made sure all my questions were answered and took the time to listen to me. The CNA's and nurses in the office are also really great! The practice is large, so you'll wait a while, but she's a great physician. A+

Dr. Wotherspoon has impressed me from the beginning. The first day I was scheduled to see her, the staff informed me she left for a delivery and I would have to wait (which happens with an OB). I waited for about 45 min, when the staff asked if I would see the NP. I did, and she was great. but as I was getting in my car I rec'd a call from Dr. Wotherspoon herself asking that I come back as she would like to meet me and apologized several times for the wait. Shows character and compassion.
