I would like to give Dr. Bristow a raving review. He is my Superstar! I'm alive today because of his immense wisdom and incredible knowledge in treating ovarian cancer (8 yr survivor - stage 3C). Dr. Bristow is extra special because he also has a terrific bedside manner, unlike many other gynecological surgeons. I'm so grateful that my sister did a lot of research beforehand and found him. He's the best! I'm in good hands!

It's almost impossible to get a response from the dr. The residents return calls and your lucky if you get any call back at all. Every time you do get a call back it's from a different resident and it's as if they just saw your case for the first time. He has a bed side manner as good as a box of rocks. He makes it obvious he could care less and when you ask him questions it's like he's being put out. Your only a number and nothing more at this office.

Dr. Bristow was is an excellent doctor. I highly recommend him. He is extremely knowledgable, kind, thoughtful, listens carefully, is good/patient at explaining things, and is clearly an expert in ovarian cancer (see NYTimes article that explains the research he did). I had surgery with him 2 weeks ago. He removed a 10cm fluid filled ovarian cyst and another 4cm chocolate cyst. He also confirmed I have endometriosis which I always suspected since my mom had it.

Had no bedside manner. Maybe a great surgeon, but i mostly saw his interns at office. Operated and i never saw him before or afterwards. Had interns visit after surgery. Had bleeding and didn't help. I had to go see my obygn to get cauterized.
