    Dr. Royal is wonderful. She actually found the lump in my breast, I feel like she saved my life! I have been very happy with her through the years.

    The review is not about Dr. Royal, but about VPFW. My daughter saw Dr. Royal after waiting for over and hour in the waiting room we liked her, but she has since left the practice. We had a co-pay of $35 that two front desk staff "wouldn't take" when offered because they said the visit was a "well woman". Ins, paid all but the $35 but they would not schedule a follow up appt until we pay $35. Despite my ins paying over $100, they sent my bill to collection after 30 days. Not going back.

    My mom and I both switched to Dr. Royal after Dr. Rabahan retired. BIG MISTAKE! While Dr. Royal is personable and nice in the office, she absolutely lacks any follow-up. She simply left a voicemail about an abnormal pap and her nurse never returned my follow-up call. She also seems to only write birth control prescriptions for a month at a time. It is absolutely ludicrous to call and ask the nurse to refill your prescription every time. Apparently bedside manner does not translate to competence.

    My first visit with Dr. Royal was outstanding. She was so attentive and caring and so very easy to talk to - right from hello. I did have a bit of a wait... 1. she is worth every minute! 2. understanding that this type of medical care is very unpredictable. there is a good chance that at some point in time we were the one that caused the doctor to run behind. Patience and understanding. I am so pleased to find a great doctor for my care. Thank you Dr. Royal.
    I waited for over an hour to see Dr. Royal this week. This is a common theme with this office that I have overlooked before, but arriving 10 minutes early for an appointment at 10 and not being seen until 11:10 is beyond ridiculous. My care provider should value my health, but also respect my time. She's a great doctor, but this is absolutely unacceptable.
