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.
