Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I visited Dr. Sholes for OBGYN all throughout my pregnancy. I don’t know exactly what that two star review was talking about, but usually the office staff will contact you if there is a mix up with schedules and they’ll apologize profusely. Hasn’t happened to me but I’ve heard them talk in the office while I’d be waiting to be called in the back. You also get text notifications two, three days in advanced to confirm your appointment. Anyways, great gynecologist! I’d highly recommend him due to great, friendly staff and how at ease they put you while in the office. They will refer you to other doctors when needed to make sure everything is going well within your pregnancy, which is a great thing because I’d rather be safe than sorry. I’ve never left upset, and they make you feel like a valued man patient even though they are so many women. Great experience and I will be using Dr. Sholes in the future!

I came to Dr sholes around 11 weeks pregnant after having a terrible experience at another OB, and from the moment I walked in the door I had nothing but an amazing pregnancy. The girls in the front office are the absolute best, and Dr. Sholes is the most caring and informative doctor I’ve ever met. I will never stop recommending you to all of my friends, THANK YOU for being an amazing OB!

Dr. Sholes and his entire team were absolutely wonderful throughout everything! With this being my first pregnancy, I didn’t really know what to expect, but Dr. Sholes and everyone there made me feel at ease and comfortable the whole 9 months! Could not be happier with the service I was provided and the care me and my sweet girl received at The Sholes Center for Women’s Health!

Amazing. I have been dealing with horrible periods for years and he was the kindest dr ever. He listened to my concerns and if I was not comfortable with something we didn't do it. I have never felt more comfortable with a dr as I have him, and this is a dr who works with lady bits all day ??. The staff is so kind. Especially at the surgical center. Those ladies there are the best of the best!

Dr Shoals and his whole team makes me feel comfortable there. They know me when I come in which makes me feel good about who I’m talking to about my body, and even when I wasn't sure if something was serious or not they still made sure to take me in and see me. I love knowing that I have Dr Shoals as my OBGYN because I know I will get the best treatment.

THE BEST! I absolutely love this office. They have made my whole women's health experience literally flawless. From general care to my first pregnancy, every person has been so nice and so informative. Dr. Sholes is amazing. He is a wonderful balance between professional and personal. He took his time to explain everything and answer all this first time mamma's questions. And during the delivery process, he was so encouraging. You can tell that he truly loves what he what he does!

I LOVE Dr. Sholes and his team and HIGHLY recommend him! I’ve seen Dr. Sholes for years but recently had the best experience with my first pregnancy! Dr. Sholes always made sure I was comfortable, took his time to answer all of my questions, was very thorough, and provided the best care for me and my baby. He is a wonderful, caring, and very knowledgeable doctor. I couldn’t have asked for better! His staff are also AMAZING, they are always smiling and so kind and helpful! I love them all!!!

Dr. Sholes is professional, kind and caring. I’ve never met another doctor with such a peaceful bedside manner. He delivered my first daughter and I look forward to having him deliver our second one! The office staff is always courteous and knowledgeable.

I had the best experience with Dr. Sholes and his caring staff than I have had with any other doctor in Athens. It was my first appointment with him after having to look for a new Gyn to replace my favorite doctor who finally retired. I am so pleased and will be telling anyone who needs a professional and caring doc about my experience. Thank you Dr. Sholes and Heather, you are appreciated. Cherry Haughton

If you don't love your gynecologist, or if you're new in town, switch to Dr Sholes. This is the first time I can say I actually enjoyed my visit to my gynecologist. I'm retired and new to the area. I based my selection upon the great reviews of this physician and his office. I was not disappointed. Young, professional office, happy staff, unrushed consultation, immaculate uncluttered examining rooms... Very pleasant experience. I highly recommend.
