If I could leave 0 I would. I’ve been waiting for an hour and a half for my appointment. This is not a doctors office this is herding pregnant cattle. Staff are not helpful and they tried to have me pay someone else’s copay, and take a pregnancy test after I’ve already been in and seen my baby. This place is horrible and is only worried about making money.

I wish I could leave 0 stars. I went to the ER & they informed me there was something wrong with the sac. Urged me to see a doctor ASAP. I went in & Dr. Stafford’s staff informed me that everything was great but they wanted me on pelvic rest. Less than 24 hours later I passed not only 15+ clots but also the sac and my baby. It the staff wouldn’t of rushed me out, I would’ve been able to express my concerns. Especially about the dropped heart rate. Worry more about your moms & not your money.

If I could give her 10 stars I would. Since day one of my pregnancy she was very kind and informative. Most of us dread going to our dr appts but I never did because she always made me feel so comfortable. I had a very bad experience with my first pregnancy (different dr) so I decided to give dr stafford a try and that was the BEST decision I've ever made. I do agree that her staff is very rude and seems like they hate their job BUT dr stafford has never once been rude or hateful towards me and

I was one of Dr. Staffords first patients here in Midland/Odessa. I first went to her for an annual check up. She made me feel extremely comfortable and explained everything she was doing! As soon as I learned I was pregnant I knew she would be my doctor! My pregnancy was tough but she always made me feel safe. She got to know me and my husband personally and it made us feel great! She has since delivered both my kids and tied my tubes. I'll use her always as my OB and I recommend her always!

I waited over an hour in the waiting room for an appointment I made 4 months in advance for an annual exam. I waited another 25 minutes in the exam room. Dr. Stafford rushed in directing me where she wanted me on the table. She performed the exam. I told her I needed to discuss different birth control because of my age. She responded that her office would call me to discuss it and left the room. I sincerely got 90 seconds of her time. She does not care about patients concerns.

I loved her as my OBGYN! I recommend her to any expecting mom I come across. She's a very nice doctor. She makes sure you and the baby are doing okay. She cares for her patients. I will definitely go with her again in the future!! Overall, I had a very GREAT experience with her! I have absolutely NO complaints! She's an amazing doctor!

I'm a new mom and Dr.Stafford was my choice because of hearing good things about her from her previous patients I was very happy with my care and each appointment, my delivery was scheduled to be a normal delivery but I ended up having to get a cecearean she came in and spoke to me and my family to make sure I knew what was going on. I was very scared but she was confident and it made me feel really safe I had a good delivery and I'm very happy with my cecearean cut its very well done.

Dr. Stafford has always shown to be caring, thoughtful and very attentive to her patients. She is very sweet. From day one she made me feel very comfortable. I have not had any problems scheduling an appt. The employees have greeted me in a polite and friendly manner. She takes her time to listen to any questions or concerns I have. WAITING IN THE LOBBY TOO LONG?: I see it as if you want your time to be valued while you're in the exam room, then be understanding and wait patiently for your turn
