Dr. Beddow has a very warm personality. It's difficult to find a doctor that you feel comfortable with on the first visit. And I'm so glad we found her. I'm very excited that she'll be my doctor during my first pregnancy. :-)

Dr. Beddow was gentle and seemed kind. However, I expected her to be more proactive about learning and addressing her patients' concerns and needs. I did have a few questions, but her answers were all very short and not very insightful. I wish she could provide more value-added services than simply meet the bare minimum. With WebMD and other similar websites around, people are now able to access abundant medical information on the Internet. What they need from a doctor is personalized/customized services that they can't get from visiting a website.

I think I found my forever Ob/gyn! BEST pap ever. In & out, fast, gentle and answered questions displaying a bedside manner I've been searching for. Would I recommend her? I already have to two people BEFORE I got home. I can't believe how much I liked this doctor! Ladies, I'd love to keep her to myself so I could secure appointments more easily, but that'd be a disservice to a doctor I found quite personable and skilled with a speculum. I'm keeping her!

The only reason I had a bit of a wait was because Dr. Beddow had just delivered twin boys. Once she was back in the office, she saw me right away and was an absolute pleasure. She has a wonderful bedside manner, very kind and attentive. Her office staff were also friendly and helpful. Thanks, Dr. Beddow, for a great experience!

Dr. Beddow was excellent, very professional. She took her time to listen and answer all my questions. Unfortunately, I wasn't as impressed from the front staff. I had to reschedule my first appointment, because I didn't have my insurance card with me. I was extremely surprised when I was told, that I couldn’t be seen unless I pay cash or have my insurance card. Also, they didn't even offer to check my benefits so I can be seen that day. As a result, I wasted half of my day and didn’t receive the care I needed.

Dr. Beddow was extremely nice and very easy to talk to; she performed my annual exam and gave me some results immediately (I've never had that experience before.) Let me know that I would receive lab results in the mail soon (I my entire life, I have received only one set of lab results via mail from a doc -- with notes), so I'd love to actually see and read the results. In summary, I found the appointment to be as pleasant as possible.
