She's a poor listener and very rude to patients.
in Eureka, CA |
She's an awful doctor. I saw her once but that was more than enough. She's incredibly rude, lacking in empathy, sloppy, and doesn't listen. The rest of the staff are lovely and I feel sorry for them having to work with such a disagreeable person. Please do yourself a favor and see someone else! This doctor obviously only sees dollar signs. You aren't a person to her, just a paycheck.

I have been a long term patient of Dr Stokes. I have always found her to be professional and a very skilled practitioner. She is attentive when I have a health problem, and the staff has always been helpful. This is a busy practice and sometimes routine care appointments are scheduled out several months, but when I have needed to get in with an urgent problem, I have always been treated promptly.
in McKinleyville, CA |
Office terribly understaffed. Took 4 months to be seen. No longer doing procedures at hospital closest to me. Waited another 6 weeks to see if doctor would be willing to perform colonoscopy at closer hospital before I had my doctor refer me elsewhere.
