A terrible physician with a horrible bedside manner. Very dismissive and condescending. She flat out lied stating the only time she wasn’t at one of her deliveries, was when she was out of town. Come to find out from the L&D nurse WHILE I WAS AT THE HOSPITAL IN LABOR, she only delivers her patients when she is on call and refuses to come in for any other deliveries. She didn’t even see me for half of my appointments, I only saw the nurses. She completely mismanaged my pregnancy which resulted it severe complications for both myself and my son. My son ended up being macrosomic at 10lbs 9oz, with hypoglycemia and torticollis as a result of my undiagnosed gestational diabetes. At my 40 week appt, I only saw the nurse, I ended up going to L&D triage at 40 weeks and 5 days with severe pre-eclampsia. The on call doctor delivered me and treated my PP hemorrhage. Graham never even saw me in the hospital or followed up post delivery. Horrible doctor. My son and I are lucky to be alive.

I was very unhappy with my prenatal care & I feel it cost my pregnancy. She dismissed my concerns about my age being 35+, my chronic PCOS, the fact I had a large Subchorionic bleed which absolutely needs to be labeled high risk yet I was told there would be NO monitoring of it & that It doesnt pose risks which was ultimately WRONG & any simple research of this condition shows that it is a great concern to the fate of a pregnancy. I also questioned decisions made during my care such as being given an unsafe drug for an infection & after research & a warning by my pharmacist that it can result miscarriage in 1st trim I didn’t use it.Every time she would tell me something that I knew was not correct I would fact check her& I found that she was giving me bad info.The worst blow was when she told me “you have ZERO risk of miscarriage at 8 weeks!”despite baby measuring almost a week behind consistently and low heart rate. Baby died 2 days later and I felt lied to and extremely misinformed.

Dr. Graham was right there holding my hand through one of the hardest thing I ever went through, having my baby pass away in utero and giving birth to him in my 2nd trimester. She was there to comfort, answer any questions and shared our pain. I felt throughout that I was in the best hands.

I am a patient of Dr Graham. I tried to get my daughter who is a minor an appointment because it makes sense to take her where I go. They refused to see her since she is not taking new patients. I asked why the website says "now accepting new patients" The reply was they only want new pregnant people. So they are only about the money. Not a Dr I will see anymore.

Hands down, best OBGYN. She is calm, cool, and confident in her practice. Which is just what I needed for my pregnancy and delivery. Her personality is very easy to get along with. I couldnt imagine having my babies with anyone else. Highly recommend her!

Dr. Graham is wonderful! She saw me from the beginning of my pregnancy and was there at delivery. She truly loves her job and is awesome in the delivery room! When it was time to birth, she gave us instructions and communicated well. My husband and I knew what was happening. She and her nursing staff are very personable and take time to answer questions. Doctor Graham supported my wishes for an unmediated, natural birth. I am blessed to have her as my physician.

I am a local surgeon in Destin & work at Sacred Heart Hospital. My wife has had 2 babies with Dr. Graham in the last 4 years & I could not be more impressed with Dr. Graham. She is extremely compassionate as well as calm & extremely skilled under pressure which is exactly what you need in your OB. I have worked at some of the top medical centers in the Southeast & US & feel Dr. Graham is one of the best MDs in any field that I’ve ever worked with. I couldn’t recommend her more highly! Thank you!

Dr Graham was on call when my daughter realized her prescription had not been filled from a visit with the nurse practitioner. Her response to me was “did she just realize it wasn’t filled?” Clearly on a Saturday I was disturbing her time off. She was rude and argumentative. I would never recommend anyone to her based on that experience. I told her how rude she was being and she kept arguing. Never experienced that with a physician before.

I've had 3 children under the care of Dr. Graham in the last 4 years. I drive an hour and a half to receive medical care from her. I have received top professional care from her staff and office as well. You can't go wrong. She is a straight shooting, common sense practicing physician. 5 stars any day.

After miscarriage I had my blood drawn for blood type. I never received a call with results so I assumed it was + A yr later I found out from other Dr that my blood type test was never completed. Why couldn’t they call me? They said it was sent to the lab in wrong tube. Nurse said it ‘didn’t matter’ If it didn’t matter why did Dr. Graham have me test? Why tell me I needed a shot if I was -? She was making up excuses. There is no excuse for a mistake like that. Mistakes like this can cost lives.

If you can't be seen Mon-Thur from 8 am to 11 am then this is not your place, Dr. Graham only see's patients during that time according to her staff. Now halfway through my pregnancy I will be switching doctors because I cannot keep accommodating to her schedule. Also, of my 4 appointments scheduled with her I have only seen her twice and the rest I have seen a nurse. She does not spend more than 10 mins in the room with you during your appointments and the staff is less than friendly.

Dr Graham and her staff are very hard to reach, and do not return phone calls. I had numerous fibroids and was told there was nothing wrong, even after seeing them on an ultrasound. Her nurse told me to take an advil! 2 other doctors told me immediately that I needed a hysterectomy, due to the size of the largest fibroid, the number of intra-uterine fibroids and my pain level. I suffered for 3 years needlessly. Dr. Graham should not be practicing medicine.

Unfortunately, I would not recommend Dr. Graham to anyone who desires a natural/unmedicated birth. Neither my baby nor I had any health concerns during labor (no blood pressure issues, positioning issues for the baby, fever, etc.), but Dr. Graham put a startling amount of unneeded pressure on me to start pitocin (when I was 7-8 cm dilated). When I asked her for her rationale, she couldn't give me anything. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Graham to anyone who would like a more medicated birth.
