Dr Northam was amazing. I appreciate the way she was genuinely concerned with what I have going on. It’s so hard to find doctors like that and I appreciate her time . Now the nurse on the other hand was rude and i did not like her service . I hope Dr Northam gets a new nurse then I will say it’s perfect

Dr. Northam was amazing in our visit. It was my first appointment with her and I went in for IUD removal. I’ve heard stories from people where their doctor would try to talk them out of this or downplay their concerns, but Dr. Northam was an amazing listener and validated all of my concerns. I even told my parents how great of an appointment it was. Highly recommend!

She is so patient and she makes you feel comfortable. She doesn’t rush you, she talks to you for you to understand. She is by far the best doctor I have ever encountered! If you have been to her all you can say is that you truly love her practice! She’s peaceful and knowledgeable! I’m forever grateful! Things I have went through personally she has guided me without judgement or fail.

Dr Northam is very professional and spends adequate time during each visit to reassure and council as needed. She is very caring and shows true compassion. She is the only doctor I’ve ever had that personally calls with any test results or returns calls if you have questions, doesn’t leave it to the messenger. I’m so glad that I have finally found a physician that treats me as I expect she would treat her own family member.

Dr. Northam is great! She’s very professional and very knowledgeable. She doesn’t rush the appointment and she really takes her time to answer your questions. Only negative thing I have to say is her Medical Assistant who takes you back seems as though she is not happy to be there and she does not want to communicate with you.

It was my first time ever visiting a GYN, and Dr. Northam was so kind, knowledgeable, and accommodating. She made me feel safe and understood, she answered all of my questions, and thoroughly informed me about my exam options and prescriptions before doing anything.

Dr. Northam is a wonderful doctor. In the five years I've been seeing her she has been very kind and attentive to all of my medical needs. She always answers the questions I have, and if there's an issue she'll suggest several options to correct it. She'll always go over solutions and directions for any problem. I would highly recommend her to all patients seeking an OBGYN.

Dr. Northam could have not created a more comfortable and safe environment to bring my child into the world. It is not often you come across a doctor who has the ability to professionally communicate their experience and knowledge while truly taking into consideration a patient's needs, wants and concerns. In office visits and during the delivery, I was never rushed and always made to feel like a top priority. I am forever grateful, she really is AMAZING!
