Judging by my recent experience, I'm surprised at how busy and popular this office is. Other reviewers offer a warm and fuzzy feeling about this place, but my experience was quite the opposite. The staff was confused and disorganized

I was referred to this office by a co-worker and am so grateful for the suggestion. I was already pregnant with my first child and came to find which doctor might be best for me. Wow, did I find the perfect match. I'm now pregnant with my second (and last) child and honestly get sad when I think that I'll only see everyone 1 time a year after this. They're all super friendly, all greet me by name, never do I feel rushed or have silly questions. They're just like family -which is exactly what I was looking for.

Pros: friendly and competent staff

the professional staff is great. I began with this practice in 1989 (19 years ago) when it had a different name and was owned by different doctors. I have seen the nurse practitioner for my yearly care all this time and she referred me to one of the physicians for my pregnancy and whenever I needed surgical or some other advanced intervention. As a nurse myself, I appreciate her approach and approachability. I am able to call and speak with her personally with my questions without the interference of the minimally-trained medical assistants in the office.

Unfortunately, I am forced to communicate through the medical assistants when I see one of the physicians and, in my opinion, they (who are supposed to facilitate patient-doctor communication) interfere and complicate it. They also overstep their training and education by diagnosing and giving medical advice. Some of the medical assistants occasionally call themselves "nurses" which is at the least unethical. The only nurse in the office is the nurse practitioner.

Pros: Caring, competent professional staff

Cons: Medical assistants assume too much responsibility & overstep skills
