OB Care

A little thrown off by speed of appointments and doctors asking me if I have questions rather than providing information up front but at the same time understand this with the amount of information online that we all have access to. Nurses are all so sweet and make you feel really comfortable!

Annual Exam

Both my nurse (Shannon, I think) and Dr. Kaplan we're courteous. Made eye contact. Communicated clearly about all actions they were taking. I did not give a five star rating as Dr. Kaplan seemed cold and not her usual friendly self. I also waited after the nurse saw me for quite a while to be examined. Her care also seemed rushed and perfunctory.
