Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Mixed experience. Made a disdainful joke about the anxiety I was experiencing before the surgery. Did not return messages of concern via the Sentara portal.

I cannot say enough about Dr Reed. I met he after getting horrible, scary news. I left her office with such a sense of peace. She made me feel like I was in the best hands possible and it turns out I was. She is straightforward and real. A truly gifted surgeon

Fast talker, bristles at your concerns. Argumentative, must have the last word. Period. Unaware of HRT & how they effect you pre/post-surgery. Hurried and flippant about your concerns post-surgery. She becomes offended & combative when questioned with extremely VITAL issues. She then notes it in her charts that it's your attitude, not hers, ever. DOESN'T LISTEN. VERY AUTHORITATIVE. CONDESCENDING. She is not for you if need a warm, attentive,thoughtful, kind, respectful and well mannered doctor.
