Honestly disappointed in this doctor & her staff. My husband and I found out were expecting our first child and we were very nervous. We made an appointment but had to wait 2 hours. After finally meeting the doctor she did a quick check up and sent us on our way, she didn’t really make me feel less nervous. I unfortunately miscarried and dr summers didn’t even feel the need to call me to tell me herself, she had her office manager do it on the phone. Very rude & dishearting. Worst experience.

My 1st appointment. It was a great experience from the initial phone call to book an appointment. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, the wait was short and Dr Summers is friendly, knowledgeable and up to date on new guidelines, treatments and therapies regarding women’s health issues. She also listens to you and wants your input.

Dr. Summers is a class act. She is super knowledgeable and the time she spent with me going over everything was outstanding. You just don’t find doctors these days with the compassion she has nor do you find any that take the time to really listen. Love her!

Dr. Summers is the first doctor I felt comfortable to ask ANY questions. She warm, patient, welcoming and very detail in her examination of my body. I am 64 years old. I wished I have found her earlier on in my life.

Horrible experience. Dr. Summers is the most condescending and and uncaring doctor I’ve ever met. She made me so upset that I cried today. I went to her with a few problems and I’m so stressed, and instead of trying to let me know the other doctor would help me better, she scoffed and talked to me like I was lying to her. Saying “mmmmhmmm” 4 times. She’s also made my pregnant sister cry as well because she was having contractions and Dr. Summers said she was being “dramatic”.

Dr. Summers is both a wonderful physician and person and I am privileged to have been referred to her 12 year ago. I have the utmost confidence in her knowledge and experience. Dr. Summers is very thorough in her examination and takes time to thoroughly discuss your questions. She has always been proactive discussing with me what I can anticipate as I age. I leave an appointment knowing I am well informed about my health and what to expect. I have recommended Dr. Summers on many occasions.

Dr. Summers had been my doctor for almost 30 years. She is always professional and personal. She listens and makes good recommendations and observations. Even though she also delivers babies I rarely have a wait. Her staff is also helpful and professional.

I completely recommend Dr Summer for the care of you and your baby. Sometimes she can seem a lit bit rough but that's because she's always straight when telling things which is something valuable to me. Her and her staff were always helpful to me and very nice. She made me feel confident trough the whole process :)
