Dr. Prewitt and her staff have been absolutely amazing. I made a cross country move about 3 weeks ago before I started having health issues. She took my concerns to heart and made sure she led me in the right direction to get a proper diagnosis. Her and her office staff are very friendly, understanding, easy to talk to, and really care about the patient. By far the best doctor I've ever been to.

Dr. Prewitt and her assistant performed an IUD insertion for me this afternoon and it was such an easy experience -- night and day from my last IUD at a different practice. Everyone was incredibly thoughtful and took great care of me before, during, and after the procedure. I've recommended Dr. Prewitt before for routine gynecology care and would definitely recommend her to anyone considering an IUD.

Dr. Prewitt is a caring, competent, and overall high quality physician. Her approach to OBGYN is a "whole body" approach to medicine, I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a female doctor in the San Luis/ Five Cities area.

I have been extremely pleased to find Dr. Prewitt's office!! She has been on time for every appointment so far, and I have never felt rushed when I meet with her. Her staff is great!! I had Dr. Prewitt for a surgery, very pleased with the outcome. I highly recommend Dr. Prewitt!! She doesn't do OB work in her office, just gyn but that's all I need these days!
