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.

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.
