Short wait time. Office and clinical staff are friendly. The physician took time to answer my questions.

Post-Partum Appointment

Jessie is fantastic and knows her stuff. Super knowledgeable and answers all my wild and weird questions. The body goes through some crazy changes during and after pregnancy and I'm so grateful for her and the ENTIRE TEAM at TP4W. Everyone has been so friendly and kind during my entire time as a patient there and I couldn't recommend it enough to our friends and family. I wish Jessie could be my primary care doctor! Ha!

Mammogram

Yes the entire staff was friendly and the doctor was very personable

Dr Freeman is very caring and professional.

Follow-up Visit (Problem / Complication)

Dr Goodrich very professional, courteous, efficient, I could go on and on about her. She is wonderful. Staff is too

Virtual Visit / Telemedicine

Because I was late and he was nice to me. I did feel a little rushed thru visit and forgot to ask some questions.

Annual Well Woman Exam

Dr. Motyka is the only doctor I don't dread seeing. She spends more time with me than my primary care doctor and covers more areas of my health than my primary care doctor too. She is an out-of-the box thinker and her office is soothing instead of anxiety producing. I have been going to her for years now, from her previous offices in Raleigh, then Carrboro and now Chapel Hill, and it is totally worth the drive and the expense (she doesn't participate in Medicare).

OB Care

I always have a good experience with Dr. Almquist. She always takes the time to go over any concerns that I may have.

Annual Well Woman Exam

Monica is great. I just think she needs to spend a little more time with me. She always seems rushed to move on to next patient

STI Testing / Treatment

Amanda was terrific. Very genuine, compassionate and knowledgeable. She made me feel comfortable and took the time necessary to talk through options.

Breast Exam

Dr.Heinemann is great! I’ve been seeing her for years. She is quick, identifies the issue, lays next steps and suggests what she’s going to do and why. They know their stuff and involve newer technology which is amazing as the health industry evolves. Would recommend her for women health needs and will be seeing her for years to come!

Mammogram

Dr. Roberts was very attentive and took her time to discuss all health related topics. She is a good listener which is very important in healthcare.

Annual Well Woman Exam

Short waiting time, friendly and thorough care
