.

I??ve been going to Dr. Mc Daniel off and on for the last 10 years; I??ve only gone in for routine PAP??s so I never really had a problem with her until recently (when I actually had an issue) prompting me to write this review.
First, the staff has gotten very rude and the doctor seems to have lost or forgotten the point of being in practice which is to provide quality service to her patients and not only to collect a huge paycheck. I was overcharged on my copayment even after pointing out to the receptionist the fee for an office visit. I was told that they didn??t know how much my insurance was going to cover so they will be charging the maximum. Never have I heard this before. To top that off, every time I visited the office, even for my results (which by the way she doesn??t give on the phone) I was charged the maximum fee- mind you an appointment for results last about 5 mins.
The doctor??s bedside manner can use some work as she always seems rushed and explains things in medical terms making it very difficult for you to understand your diagnosis. She also made you feel silly when you asked questions or for her to ??break it down? in laymen terms. You spend more time filling out the computerized questionnaire than you actually spend with the doctor.
Anyway, I continued to experience the same problem that prompt my initial visit after six months of seeing the doctor and decided to exercise my rights of seeking a second opinion. Dr. Mc Daniel made it a very difficult process for me to get my medical records from her in a timely manner even after explaining countless times that the records were needed to make a complete assessment of my problem. We needed to compare her finding to what was found. She made me wait 6 weeks for the report!
Poor service and terrible customer service.

I was freaked out about going to this office after reading so many awful reviews.. but I have to say, I completely disagree with all of them. I had a great experience here.

I was in and out of the office within 45 minutes, and got a one year prescription for my BC which they emailed to the pharmacy for me. The staff isn't rude; they are just professional and "business like." They are very helpful, and very efficient. Dr. McDaniel herself was very sweet, didn't rush me or my exam at all, answered all my questions, and was very informative and thorough. I thought she was fantastic.

If you're looking for a hug and a lollipop after your ob/gyn visit, then I guess this isn't the place for you.. but if you want a quick, clean, thorough exam with a very professional and efficient staff, then I definitely recommend Dr. McDaniel.

Cons: All the bad reviews.

I went to this office today and I don't really know what the other reviews are talking about. The office was very clean and painted pink with some Van Gogh prints on the walls.

The staff was ok, not super friendly but efficient. Paid the standard $30 copay and got a year's prescription for birth control.

Dr. MCDaniel was good, very professional, friendly and quick.

The only cons were waiting for about 15 minutes in the exam room.

Pros: 1 yr script, only took an hour

Cons: longish wait, staff

Dr. McDaniel is a great doctor.
Yes the office is pretty ugly, and the receptionists are extremely rude, but Dr.McDaniel is an excellent gyno, she knows what she's doing, she is clean, answers all your questions and concerns.

Took too much for my copay and wouldn't refund me when I went back with my correct information. They just take what they can get. THis place is about money, not about patient care. I wish I'd done some more research before I went there. I picked it because close to my office. I wouldn't go back if i worked on the same floor! Never had a worse experience iin my life with a "doctor". Or in a doctor's office.
No one cares to even be polite including Dr. McDaniel. this place should get MINUS STARS.

Pros: Not one thing

Cons: the doctor, the staff, the office

Sometimes you really have to read and believe the reviews. If some one takes the time to complain, believe it. Horrible staff, long wait and the place is really not clean - doctor's stuff in jars out in the open - . There were a bunch more of bad reviews (like 10!) that have been removed - I don't know why or how . They should have stayed as they were all true. This office is strictly for the $$$. Stay away!

This was the worst experience ever. Not only did I have to wait forever to see the doctor, the place was dirty and looked like it was under construction. After waiting over an hour to see the doctor she comes in barely speaks to me and gave me the worst exam I have ever had. She was extremely rough, I will leave it at that. Another problem with this place is they only give you 6 months of birth control other doctors I have gone to gave me a year. PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT GO!!!

Pros: Nothing

Cons: Long wait, dirty office, horrible doctor, and only 6 month birth control perscription

Where to start.. maybe with the small things i could've lived with..Um, they asked for my personal information, reason for visit, current medications etc in a common area while i'm sitting next to a stranger. After my bloodwork I felt lightheaded and asked for a drink of water but was told they "didn't have any". (?) Post-appt I got a call saying I needed to come in for a 10-min consultation and was reminded not to forget my $45 copay..this leads to the big problems..

..to the BIGGIES. They charged me $45 (specialist fee?) when Downtown Women's charged me $10. and most importantly: they wrote me a prescription for birth control for 5 Months only. They told my friend that the FDA was changing their guidelines and this was standard. THAT'S NOT TRUE! You have a right to get a year prescription still! They just blatantly lied to get you in there to pay for an office visit (which they overcharge you on). I got the feeling right away that they were trying to get me in for appts just to get money. I started going to Downtown Women's and hightly recommend them.

Cons: everything else ESPECIALLY their lies!

HORRIBLE experience... I repeat HORRIBLE experience...Not the cleanest...Run the other way...
I waited forever to see the doctor...I know they usually run behind..but it was way way behind and the girls at the front desk kept getting attitudes with people when they asked how much longer it would be. Then by the time I saw the doctor, she completely rushed through my exam and didn't even apologize for being so late. She was not friendly or helpful at all. Then I never heard anything from them after my exam. I had been through a horrible experience which prompted me to visit the Gyn anyway....so I was expecting my results...so I called weeks later and they were like, Oh if you haven't heard from us...then everything is okay...so Im like GREAT! Woo hoo...but then I get my results back in the mail and let me tell you they were not GREAT at all...I mean how do you send someone bad news in the mail and not even call them into your office to discuss the issue and how to take care of it? SO WRONG on so many levels! I am disgusted by the way I was treated....their service was completely UNACCEPTABLE, COMPLETELY. They will never see me again. Oh and lets add to all of this...the bills I got in the mail afterwards... Never said anything about more than copays being due -poorly run-I'm also upset at the office for not explaining to me what is and isn't covered. I mean geez.
