Medford, OR |
I would never recommend this very cold, uncaring, and uncompassionate Dr. to anyone. He would have let me die in his parking lot after his nurse took my staples out too soon and my wound opened walking to my car. Besides the fact that he almost killed me on the operating table. Also kept telling me he didn't think I had cancer. And yet I did!

He did a surgery of mine that went well, but his bedside manner could definitely use some work. He always seems like he's in a rush and acts annoyed by patients. His staff (who had their hands in some private places at the time) second guessed my firm decisions on multiple occasions, and he did nothing about it. Unfortunately, he's one of very few options in Humboldt County.

During my pregnancy, I met with Dr. Stokes a couple of times. He was nice and gave me good advise. The midwifes are really attentive and nice too. My problem is with the office staff. These ladies need to be reminded that they are not working a register at Walmart. You are working in Health Care. Put a smile on your face once in a while. The ladies are condescending and borderline rude the majority of the time. I wholeheartedly hated checking in at this place.

Straight to the point, which I liked.

Dr Stokes did not provide an ultrasound when I was in premature labor ( I and sent me home, my water broke in the grocery store and my daughter did not survive.) I waited for hours in the hospital to deliver her but because Dr Stokes has no back up for his practice nobody came. Dr Stokes did not order any labs for aftercare and missed the fact that I had retained placenta and a low grade infection. Another OBGYN caught the infection and operated to remove the retained placenta.

My wife is Dr. Stokes' patient, and I've been with her on all her visits. I am also a physician. I am very impressed with his competence and his manner. He is thoroughly focused on her health. No, he won't waste time discussing politics, sports, or other irrelevant things, but he doesn't miss anything pertinent. He often runs late, but he's well worth the wait. We are both delighted with his care, and I recommend him without reservation.

He was unresponsive to my feelings and my appointments were less than five min! He forgot important testing I was due for a couple times and didn't remember my name after 3 appointments. He routinely forgot important milestones in my pregnancy, and skipped a pap exam when I had an infection to be re-tested for. I was given a prescription for an anti-biotic that causes birth defects! Luckily I did my own research. in the end I switched to dr nicely down the road, who was awesome!

As a woman dealing with Endometriosis having a good doctor to thoroughly discuss my concerns is very important. I had to have 2 cysts removed from my ovaries a couple of years ago and need to have ultrasounds and anuals regularly. I went to my first appointment with Dr. Stokes and waited an hour before being seen. He was in such a hurry that I didn't get a chance to ask all my questions before being rushed out the door. I would not recommend this office to anyone.
Cutten, CA |
Do not go to this doctor! The office is chaotic and unprofessional, and the doctor didn't even look at my records or paperwork. He met with me for maybe five minutes before recommending major surgery. So I got a second opinion. The new doctor thoroughly reviewed my records and discussed my questions. She told me that not only was surgery unnecessary, but that it would be detrimental. Do yourself a favor and avoid Dr. Stokes' circus of an office and assembly line surgical practice at all costs.
in Eureka, CA |
I decided to give Dr. Stokes a try a couple years ago after a verbal reference from a friend. I went to him for a simple Pap and will never go back. The office was a construction zone, when I finally saw him he hardly paid me any attention. He would ask a question, I would start to respond but he would cut me off before I could get a word out. He obviously didn't care about my concerns or questions. It was especially obvious that he wasn't listening when I asked a question and he ignored it.
Eureka, CA |
Dr. Stokes isn't for everyone but if there is anyone I would want in this county to deliver my baby with a high risk pregnancy it would be him! I personally like and respect him, but he is a busy man and I can see how that would rub some people the wrong way.
