Patient Comments (9)
She seems to be knowledgble about many other conditions relating to womens health. She is a good listener and most important, gentle.
Westerville, OH |
The best ever. Takes her time and is very informative. Truly cares about all my concerns.
in Reynoldsburg, OH |
The best doctor, hands down. She is the most compassionate, caring, loving, amazing woman I have ever met. I am so thankful I found her, because she's not only a doctor to me...she's a friend. She truly cares. I can't say enough amazing things about her! ?
Very poor communication and preparedness both before and after test results. Long wait to see Dr. and then she was not prepared. Had not reviewed my case and had to find the records faxed weeks before by another doctors. Assistant did not return calls in time promised.
in Granville, OH |
I switched drs a couple times during my last pregnancy bc I just didn't feel like I was finding a good fit for my childbirth goals. In my search for a new doctor, I found Dr. B & have been very happy with my experience in her care. I ended up having a vaginal delivery 9 hrs after the hospital nurses had recommended a c-section bc she told them I needed more time. She also stood behind my birth plan 100%. I now drive from Granville for my prenatal appts, because I want to have the same experience
Bexley, OH |
She is the best - she makes me want to keep having babies! I've never felt rushed or like she's needing to get on with her day - the exact opposite actually; she spends more time with me than I'd expect from a busy doctor to address my questions, explain upcoming appointments, etc. Personable, professional and you just get the vibe that she cares about you as a patient and a person. Highly, highly recommend.
in Newark, OH |
She really made me comfortable the first time I saw her. I wasn't looking for surgery as a cure, but am I glad she made the decision much easier for me. I previously had breast cancer and was having problems with my ovaries and cycles. I would recommend anyone to see her. She took time to explain how keeping them and losing them would affect me and ultimately left the decision to me. I am two months post hysterectomy and feel like a new woman. Thank you Dr. B, you are the best!
Grove City, OH |
She is very impersonal. She is just fine if you don't have questions, but seems to get annoyed and treats you like you are wasting her time.
She is always running late and rushing through appointments. She never tells us what is going on. She just does it. Very unpersonal.
