Dr Oliphant is Excellent! I have been going to him for 27 years and have NEVER had a bad experience! He has done two surgery's on me and I have had a great and easy recovery on both. He listens to my concerns and always keeps me calm when something isn't right with my body. His staff is of excellence as well. I hope he never retires!??

Dr. Oliphant is by far the best doc I’ve ever been to! He delivered my daughter years ago and I really just love this man!! He is kind, gentle, knowledgeable, experienced, and always listens to my concerns and provides thorough examinations and consultations. I wish I could go to him for every ache and pain... I’ve never felt so comfortable with a doctor before. I don’t know what I’ll do when he retires!!! I highly recommend him to everyone looking for a OB/GYN.

I have been going to dr. Oliphant for years he's the best doctor I've ever gone through he takes time to talk to you before and after the examination I would recommend him to anyone !

Dr. Oliphant is obviously experienced, but may be burnt out. He rescheduled 2 appointments in 4 months, did not take the time to answer my questions, respect my wishes, or work with me. He laughed at me when I said that I wanted a natural birth and told me to ask the girls upfront about birthing classes. On my first appointment, the scheduling woman suggested we waited a long time to start trying! (I am 32!) I switched providers at 26 weeks. Bad experience all around.
