Office Visit / Follow-up

I was satisfied with my experience because I felt heard. Any concerns I had were met with simple, easy solutions; and were communicated to me effectively.

OB Centering

She as well as the other staff are always so kind and answer any questions and concerns I may have. I highly recommend her!

Post-Partum Appointment

My appointment was at 3pm. I was there on time. I was not seen by the provider until 4:45pm. I was finished with my appointment by 5 o clock. I was lectured about contraception and why I had not tied my tubes. Some of the medical assisting staff was rude and just clearly in a rush to go home. If you don’t want to help people please don’t work in healthcare. It’s that simple.

Routine Pregnancy / Prenatal Appointment

I was disappointed in the amount of wait time I experienced. I purposely chose appointments first thing in the morning to avoid delays, etc which I understand happen due to emergencies, etc. However, this did not seem to be the cause of my delays. After being called back around 8:10 I was sent back to the waiting room once after my urine sample and again after my blood pressure, weight, etc were taken. I then waited for a total of 35 minutes. After finally being taken back to my room, I passed the provider who was seeing me for my appointment. Her desk was right next to my room. After the nurse used the Doppler, she said the provider would be right in. I was hearing a lot of chit chat outside of my room, after waiting 15 minutes, I had to use the restroom. My provider was chatting with others in the hallway in what seemed like casual conversation while I’m sitting in the room waiting. I then asked if I would be seen shortly because I had a work meeting. After using the restroom, she came in about 5 minutes later. Again, I understand if there are delays due to emergencies etc but when it’s just because of casual conversation after I’ve already been waiting for 50 minutes that is inconsiderate.

Routine Pregnancy / Prenatal Appointment

All of the staff are very friendly and helpful. I feel listened to with any problems and am given solutions with no hassle.

Office Visit / Follow-up

Doctor's and staff are very professional and helpful. Centering pregnancy is very helpful in overcoming challenges that come with pregnancy and has been very educational and comforting.

Gynecological Exams

Gynecological Problem Visit

It felt very rushed, even though I waited 45 min to be seen. I had questions I’d wanted to ask, but didn’t get an opportunity. I was also expecting a Pap smear because I’m overdue and declined it at my first OB appointment. I was told it would be performed at this appointment, but when I asked about it I was told they didn’t need to do it now. I don’t think my healed stitches were examined either, it would have been nice to have an official okay on their healing. Overall I’m sure I’m fine. She checked my cervix was closed and uterus was back down to normal size, and prescribed my birth control. But I did have other minor questions, like why is my libido gone and what I can do about that. And are my stitches okay? And can I take my prenatals for breastfeeding alongside my birth control pills? It was rushed.

Lab Work

I have never had a complaint about this ob. Everyone there is super sweet & always answer every question you have!

Gynecological Ultrasound / Sonogram

The wait time is never long, I recently experienced a miscarriage and this was my first appointment for my new pregnancy, everyone took their time to be gentle with me. I would really love to give a shout out to the sonographer with the blonde curly hair, she was the one who had to tell me about my miscarriage and when I came back and was nervous this time she was so understanding, calm, explained everything to me that was going on on the screen, made sure I was comfortable, and that really makes a difference, she has a great heart.

Gynecological Ultrasound / Sonogram

Every concern I had was mentioned and well discussed, from baby talk to personal issues. I was in the office to see my usual doctor but he was unavailable when I arrived so she made sure I was comfortable seeing her before stepping in. Very cordial, very professional, and helpful!

Annual Well Woman Exam

Always highly satisfied when seeing Tara Mitchell. She listens, cares and talks through any issues or problems.

Mammogram

Highly professional and personal at the same time. Been seeing Tara for years and always return. She has kept me as a patient as she changed over to other types of appointments which makes me feel special and cared for with consistency of knowing my history. Awesome doctor. Also, Elizabeth too is a fine mammogram specialist. I appreciate Carteret Ob/Gyn allowing me to schedule both appointments back to back since I live out of town.

Pap Smear

Annual Well Woman Exam

I hate when my providers doesn't go the extra mile for me when I'm expressing a concern to them. Is it that hard to order more blood work or get extra testing. It's not like it's coming out of your pocket. Just a reminder that's we have insurance. I rather have a peace of mind about my health than my provider doing the bare minimum for me.

Routine Pregnancy / Prenatal Appointment

The provider rushed while she was in the room, she was very rude and refused to answer any questions or concerns

IUD Insertion / Removal

Because Tara was so sweet and helpful through the whole thing
