I had a procedure done here about a year ago and considering how nervous I was and how scary the whole ordeal was for me I found the staff extremely helpful, supportive and comfortiing thoroughout the process. I therefore decided to come back as a regular patient for gynecology services. BIG MISTAKE. HUGE! Although they were great when I was in an emergency situation, this office is TERRIBLE at dealing with regular patients.

If you make an appointment, expect to wait 1.5 to 2.5 hours to be seen by a doctor. The first time I cam in for my annual I was called in at my appointed time and asked to pee in a cup. I turned in my sample and then was made to wait 30min. I was then called for bloodwork. Then another 30 min wait. Then I got called into a room to undress and sit on the exam table. Another 30 min wait with my legs in a stirrup. Finally my nurse came in to do a pap smear and it was over in about 2 minutes. There was no breast exam (like all my other doctors have always done), no manual pelvic exam (where they press down on your belly to feel your ovaries and make sure all seems normal). She literally took the sample and removed her gloves to leave. She didn't ask if I had any concerns or questions and I had to stop her as she was leaving to actually get some personalized attention since I DID have concerns I wanted to discuss and address with a doctor. She didnt really seem to have any useful info for me and I found myself going home to google my questions. That's just ridiculous.

The next time I came in on a Saturday to get my bloodwork results which they won't give you any other way than in person and was told I'd have to wait the usual 1.5 hours. Seriously? for results? That takes literally 2 minutes. What the hell? Well weekends clearly are not a good time for them since I waited 2.5 hours just to speak to a doc for literally 2 minutes about my test results. The whole time I was waiting all the other girls sitting next to me were complaining loudly about the wait and RIGHTLY SO!!!

I applaud their care when it comes to dealing with difficult situations such as a pregnancy termination but they are not at all equiped to handle regular office visits. Needless to say that I will NOT be returning EVER! Steer clear if what you want is a reliable and helpful gynecologist.

I knew that I could not have a child when I found out I was pregnant because of health concerns. For the same reason I could not find a doctor or clinic that would see me - until I found Parkmed.

Parkmed was recommened by several doctors and they were right. The doctors took excellent care of me and the staff was warm, friendly and helpful. I am so greatful that I could be taken care of and know that I would be OK.

I never wanted to have an abortion. I am sure everyone says that, but when I was faced with this difficult choice I am glad Parkmed and their awesome staff were there for me.

I found them on line at Parkmed.com. The website helped me think about all the options now availible. When I finally called the staff was smart and kind. They really understand.

My doctor was also really understanding and made me feel that even though I was sad I would definately be ok. My health was definately their primary concern.

I am so greatful and could not recommend them highly enough!

I was so relieved when I finally found Parkmed Physicians. I was extremely upset when I found out I was pregnant and knew that I needed an abortion. My private GYN recommened Parkmed and I am so glad she did. Their website (parkmed.com) was very infnrmative and helped me feel like I had all the information to decide what sort of abortion I wanted.

The staff when I called and when I came in treated me like a person, not a number, even though it was busy. They made me feel like my health was their primary concern.

If I ever have to advise a friend in this sort of situation I will send them to Parkmed.
