I have seen Dr. Childs for several years. During my appointments she has always been courteous and nice. I initially started seeing her to get a second opinion, and her opinion on my symptoms was the right one. Her office staff is courteous and helpful.

I went to see Dr.Childs when I wanted to get started on birth control, along with every other review my doctor was extremely rude. Now right before I went in my mother told me they would be asking me very personal questions, and boy was she right! She also told me to answer the questions with 100% honesty which so did the doctor, so there for I did. With some of the answers being answered with my honesty my doctor made some very rude remarks which would never happen in an OBGYN appointment

had to be the most rude doctor i've ever been to. i left their in tears and sat in the parking lot crying after leaving there. Dr. Childs was extremely arrogant and after crying to her telling her my fears if my medical condition got worse, she completely disregarded it and made things sound worse for me. she barely explained anything to me and at one point said "so what do you want me to do about it" after telling her my symptoms. never going there again.

Had a family emergency on the day of ny appointment. Called an canceled at 830 am. Got a bill 3 months later for $25. Will never go back. Money is more important than people to this clinic.
