Dr O is the best. He is so thoughtful and easy going. He is going to be retiring soon and I don't know what I will do!! He delivered both of my babies and I cannot tell you a single bad thing about him.

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 ! I have been going to him for so long even though he sees me once a year he really knows who I am and talk to my concerns he's the one that diagnose my breast cancer 17 years ago which means I'm still here he's the best gynecologist I've ever had my previous one retired I had to go to someone else and he is the bes

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.
