Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Beddow is the best OBGYN in San Mateo. Highly recommended!
I was scared at first visit, but she is veery kind and calm. I'm very excited that she'll be my doctor.I would recommend her to anyone! thx
It was simply pleasant. Isabell makes you feel right at home - feel lucky I found her.
it was a good one...everyone is very curtious and pleasant to deal with. Dr. and staff are very prompt did not have to wait long at all which was very surprising.
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. :-)
Very kind. She definitely has wonderful bedside manner and treats you like a person, not just another patient. I will certainly be going here again.
Dr Beddow is very nice and warm. Very professional and willing to answer any questions. Highly recommended.
She's very calm and reassuring and very patient with questions. I really liked the office staff too!
I was scared at first, but when I first saw Isabell, her warm smile and face put me at ease. Thanks.
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.
It was very good. Her assistant Jessica is great. She is professional and likes her job. It is a nice change to be in a doctor's office where the staff treats the patients well.
I love Dr. Beddow - she is professional, yet warm and friendly. I would recommend her to anyone!
Dr Beddow and her staff were respectful and empathetic.
She was awesome:)))
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!
Very good doctor. Listened to my concerns.
As usual, another great appointment with Dr. Beddow. She's extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and overall a fantastic obgyn. I can't recommend her enough!
she knows what she is doing :)
Everyone there was very friendly and took the time to greet you and say goodbye. Very professional.
Dr Beddow accepts zocdoc appointments which is great and a big relief vis a vis the regular bureaucratic nightmare. The staff was pleasant and welcoming. The clinique too. Dr Beddow was nice, professional, and sensitive. Overall great experience.
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!
she is very nice ..
Dr. Beddow combined top-notch professionalism with a wonderfully warm bedside manner. I recommend her highly.
The appointment was efficient and on time, and Dr Beddow was very friendly. I felt very comfortable with her.
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.
Professional. Personable. Great bed side manner. Cares about her patients.
I just moved to the area and was blown away by how great Dr. Beddow was - the reviews are true! She is fantastic.

Today was my first time meeting Isabell Beddow, she is super great and super awesome I would recommend her to everyone. At the end of the appointment she even gave me her number just in case I have more questions or need to get a hold of her. Staff is also very friendly.

Dr. Beddow is incredibly sweet and a great doctor. She listens to all of your concerns and doesn't make you feel like she is rushing out the room to get to another patient. I highly recommend her.
Gentle, compassionate, and highly competent. I travel from another city to see Dr. Beddow because she makes me feel comfortable and at ease. Unfortunately, not every OB-GYN out there has that ability!
I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Bedow; I found her services more than satisfactory. She takes the time to talk about your concerns and give you confidence and calm, even on those procedures that sometimes women become so tense. I really like her and the environment of her clinic.

Office was well organized. Very effective staff. less than 5 minute wait to fill out new patient forms. Doctor was great, listened, well, offered treatment options and referrals.
Dr. Beddow is the best doctor I have had, and I have been blessed with excellent doctors in my life. She is warm, encouraging, very knowledgeable and respectful. It is rare to find a doctor who trusts the patient in their own body wisdom, and trusts the body's miraculous capacity to heal itself. Each step of the way she has shared with me my options, pros and cons, and trusted my choices and relationship with my own body. I am so grateful for her expertise and her bedside manner - could not ask for more. Thank you!
: ) Some people go in to privet practice because they are gifted. Beddow is one of these, she is gifted, knowledgeable, smart, insightful. She is enjoyable to talk to, hears what your have said, and repeats it back accurately. I can go on, her staff is warm and FAST. : ) Fantastic OBGYN.
Dr Beddow is super sweet and very understanding. She actually listens to your concerns and doesn't treat you like "just another patient". I'm so glad to have found her!
She listened to everyone one of my hypochondriac-like questions with a patience and thoughtfulness that is rare these days. Dr. Beddow is non-judgmental or pushy. She diplomatically informs you of all of your options and let's you choose what you are most comfortable with.
She is very nice and professional.
She was exceptionally friendly, really easy to talk to. I felt very comfortable with her. She maintained a very professional manner throughout. Plus very helpful approachable staff. Great all round.
