My biggest regret is trusting Dr. Konkol with any part of my pregnancy. She gives poor prenatal care, does not answer any questions you bring to her or if she does answer them, it is not with out an eye roll and sigh. There is not enough space to in depth explain how horrible she is, but please do NOT use Dr. Konkol if you want to receive proper prenatal care or be treated like a decent human.

She has helped my through 2 pregnancies and here we are again and i am only comfortable going to her for care. She may be quick but she was always professional and answered every question. She even offered advice on careing for stretch marks. (Which i didnt take and should have lol) she is straight and to the point. I am excited to see my baby for the first time and im excited that she will be there every step of the way.

I love Dr Konkol! I have been going to her for 15+ years and have never had a problem. She inquires on any issues I'm having, asks how I'm doing & is very straight forward. She is the best Dr I have ever had.

It's been 2 years since I had my baby and saw here, and I'm STILL disgusted by how awful she was! She made fun of clients calling in with questions, screamed at her receptionist in the lobby, spent about 2 minutes with me total, asked my husband if he even cared when he didn't hear her ask a question, the list goes on and on. She is awful, and thank god this wasn't my first baby or I would have been devastated with the birthing process. Run far away from her!!

Dr. Konkol is so brash. And I don't mean she has a dry sense of humor, because I have a dry sense of humor. She hurries through appointments, she doesn't listen to concerns. She let me live with a recurrent yeast infection for 2 years. I switched doctors and low and behold, he put me on a medication to treat the infection and I haven't had an issue since. Her staff is rude. The waiting times are atrocious. She also basically shamed me for having a third pregnancy. I wouldn't take my dog to her.

Dr. Konkol's is rude. Her whole staff is rude. They have a rude theme going on. She told me whe was going to bill me extra when I asked her for a test. Her assistant said "You don't show up in months and just pop in here asking for tests". She had me on clomid for over a year and she is not a fertility specialist. I wish I had had more knowledge about infertility. I trusted my doctor, don't we all? Unprofessional and careless. I changed doctors.

Dr. Konkol is very knowledgeable but very brass and rushes through appointments. I believe she treats her OB patients with more care than her annual GYN patients.

I spent longer in waiting room than in my actual appointment. She is rude, referring to her patients as a herd of cattle. She offered no advice, shared no knowledge, and acted as though expressing my concerns & needing answers to my questions was no more than a nuisance. My daughter ended up being born with a life threatening liver disease, was hospitalized for the first 8 months of her life, and is awaiting liver transplant. Her response? "I'm surprised she didn't just die." Stay away from her

I would give Dr. Konkol negative stars if the site allowed me. Very cold and distant and made me very uncomfortable. Laughed at me in front of her staff for calling to tell her my concerns during my pregnancy when I was going into labor 5 weeks early. Told me I might as well just go to the hospital because she had to go there anyway then left me waiting while crowning to gab with other doctors about her daughters wedding. She only let me push 3 times total before cutting me without concent!
