There is not enough space for me to put down everything I want to say about Dr. Rees. My Urologist told me about her and he thought I would like her. She is so amazing and truly cares for her patients. Dr. Rees performed a total hysterectomy for me and I feel like a new person. I was never in any pain and had no complications. She is so knowledgeable and soft spoken and explains everything thoroughly. I absolutely love Dr. Rees and highly recommend her. She has a terrific staff that make you feel welcome. I am so glad to have Dr. Rees for my doctor. March 30, 2021 Pam Bulloch

I’m so appreciative to Dr. Rees for providing me quality care and taking the time to educate me regarding my treatment options. From the moment I entered her office, I felt welcomed and treated with respect by all staff members. Ultimately, I decided to have a hysterectomy and I am so glad that Dr. Rees was my surgeon, because the procedure went very smoothly from beginning to the end. I wish I had found Dr. Rees sooner and I highly recommend her if you would like quality care from a compassionate and respectful doctor.

Dr. Rees performed a total hysterectomy for me. I was nervous, but still confident because she is the most amazing doctor I have ever met. My surgery was unbelievable because only a couple of days later, I wondered if I had even had surgery. I had noooo issues and no pain! I did not have to use pain meds at all. Her dedication to help women is amazing. Choosing her as my doctor is one of the best things that have ever done for myself. Her bedside manner cannot be matched!

I came to Dr. Rees for a hormonal assessment, experiencing dramatic cognitive challenges that had been growing more and more debilitating, and that hobbled my productivity, created constant exhaustion and anxiety, and that mirrored many symptoms of early onset Alzheimer's. Her assessment of my hormone imbalances went well beyond the usual "you are in within range..." and instead focused on helping restore OPTIMAL levels. After only 2 months of hormone treatments (plus some additional supplements), I feel almost my old self! I am SO RELIEVED to be back in the flow of not only managing daily tasks, but actually feeling productive again...without the constant fog, anxiety I was forgetting something important, exhaustion of trying to hold thoughts in mind, etc. I am so grateful, and am looking forward to my followups and future assessments. I highly recommend this practice, especially to women approaching or in menopause.

Valentine’s Day 1995, my wife had given birth (C-Section) and was bleeding to death. Dr Rees was quickly asked to provide an opinion. She inserted herself in the care process, took the lead and saved my wife’s life. I believe God places people in your life at his choosing. Dr. Rees was our angel that day. What an impact. She saved my wife and in turn, saved mine.

If I could rate Dr. Rees and her staff more than five stars, I would. This was my first pregnancy and from my first appointment to delivery and everything in between, Dr. Rees and her staff were nothing but professional, courteous, and caring. They all went above and beyond to ensure that my needs were adquately taken care of. In short, if you're looking for top-notch service and a doctor who truly cares about you as a person and not just as another patient, I highly recommend Dr. Rees. She made my entire experience stress free and a memorable one for all of the right reasons. Most especially, her genuine compassion and bedside manner were refreshing. Dr. Rees really is a rarity when it comes to medical professionals these days.

Best BioTe doctor! I’ve had my pellets by 2 different providers in Columbus, and she is hands down the best. I appreciated her extensive experience in BioTe, after a horrible insertion with my last doctor. No bruising whatsoever! Great experience. Not to mention she didn’t go solely by “text book” when deciding my dosing and frequency, she LISTENED to me, listened to my concerns and together we achieved a dosing/frequency that I was highly satisfied with.

Dr. Rees did my surgery yesterday 11/13/2019 a partial hysterectomy to be exact and I couldn’t be happier to be in such good hands????. My husband and I as the rest of my loving family are feeling blessed for her. I never told her how scared I was of not coming out of surgery. She somehow managed to put me at ease with her soft spoken words and explanations of the surgery. I cannot forget her entire staff, I don’t remember all of their names but have been in touch with Stacy and my Nurse Practicioner Jennifer Wood . They are GREAT!! I am walking around with pain at all!! My surgical site looks great!! The only discomfort I have is from the nerve block but that is all! I definitely recommend Dr. Rees, Jennifer Wood and their entire staff. You will-love them too !!

I was just as surprised by her behavior. What you are saying may be true; if it is, there is a professional way to relay that information to patients. I was not treated in a professional way that day, and because of that, I will never go back. The individual I spoke with to set the appt knew exactly why I was coming in and was discussing it with someone else. They even asked me to get the surgery notes. I would have much rather been told on the phone that she would not see me as opposed to sitting through that appointment and having it go the way it did. Again, I had never seen that side of her before after being a patient for 14-15 years. And to critique someone’s scars; who does that? The fact that the nurse practitioner told me she was “highly insulted” confirms what I had just started to suspect at that point by her behavior.

While knowing Dr Rees for the past 14 years I find this version of the story to be highly unlikely. Also, at the time you chose to see another Surgeon and have them do your hysterectomy, that makes you that Surgeons patient. Maybe you should go see the Surgeon who operated on you and have them assess your issues. Most Surgeons will not touch other Surgeons work.
