in Dayton, OH |
Most horrible experience ever with this doctor. I saw her for OB care and she literally spent less than 2 minutes with me. I even tried asking her questions and tried expressing my concerns with my health and she blew me off and walked out of the room. She is rude and I will never see her again! I left her office in tears!

I'm not sure I've ever had a worse experience with a doctor. She asked if I had any questions, let me ask ONE, gave me a brief negative answer, and then started her exam within less than 2 minutes of walking into the room. She didn't ask about or give me the opportunity to ask about my current medication or whether I wanted to stick with it. The actual exam went horribly and she left immediately after. She said she'd send my Rx to the pharmacy (I assume she meant my current one) and walked out.

Dr. Harlan is the most amazing doctor I have ever had. I have been with her for 12 years. I am due to have my first baby in April and I am so happy that she is my doctor. I would not want to be with anyone else or trust anyone else. She is more than just a doctor, she is a friend. I will always recommend Dr. Harlan!!

New Lebanon, OH |
I had to have an emergency D&C and Dr. Harlan was the one to perform the procedure. It was a very scary and emotional situation for me. Dr Harlan came into the Emergency Room, explained the procedure and stood by my side in the operating room. She answered all my questions and made me feel safe. I knew I was in good hands and I felt at ease that everything would be ok. I would highly recommend her to any of my family and friends.

In spite of all the health issues that I had in 2015 Dr. Harlan was there to offer her professional expertise. I had the Givenchy robotic hystrectomy and it has changed my life with my husband family &friends for the good...I must say that this was my first true experience with an (ob-gyn) and Lifestage I am very satisfied..she displays all the qualities of a true professional and the office staff very professional and private along with being a listening ear and empathetic. Highly recommended!

My sister had an emergency and we met Dr. Harlan in the ER in the early morning hours. She was extremely compassionate and caring. She spent time with us explaining the situation and putting our minds at ease. I would highly recommend her for any of your OB/GYN needs.

I have been seeing Dr. Harlan for the past 20 years. She takes the time to know me personally and always considers what is in the best interest for my health and well-being. Even though I moved away from the area 5 1/2 years ago I continue to drive over an hour to see Dr. Harlan, because the relationship that we have built is more important to me than convenience. I was even lucky enough to have her deliver my daughter almost 9 years ago. I would highly recommend Dr. Harlan!
in Dayton, OH |
I love Dr. Harlan. I have been with this practice since I was 15, and I am now 37. She always gives good advice and treats me well. I would recommend Dr. Harlan for future patients!
in Brookville, OH |
Due to insurance coverage I had to find a new physician which can be scary in itself. From day one Dr. Harlan was friendly and compassionate. She took the time to address all of my questions and concerns. I needed to have a procedure and felt completely confident with Dr. Harlan. She fully explained the risks, pros and cons of having a procedure. Her gentle nature made me feel at ease. Her bedside manner shows her patients how much she cares for them. I would 100% recommend Dr. Harlan.
