Verified Patient Reviews
Dr Stephen was so nice and efficient. The doctor I usually see has stopped doing exams so I decided to see her associate Dr Stephen..She did a complete health history and reviewed any medications and supplements I’m taking. . I didn’t have to wait long either. She also suggested some healthier tips to me so as to avoid me taking unnecessary meds....I highly recommend her and her staff!
Incredibly helpful! She was fast, straightforward, and reassuring. Her staff was super friendly and nice. Plus I was in and out in 45 minutes! I'm so glad I found her!
She's direct and fast in her examination (which is very well appreciated!)
Offices are easy to get to by public transit. Professional and clean offices
Dr. Stephen’s is very thorough, easy to talk to about sometimes difficult subjects, professional yet approachable, I would highly recommend her. She knows her stuff!
Had an IUD placement and a pap smear. Both procedures were much quicker than I expected, and she walked me through it. She's really great and I would highly recommend her!
I was REALLY nervous about today’s appointment. The doctor couldn’t have been nicer. When I was in pain during my Pap she had the nurse stand by me and hold my hand. It truly made all the difference. I was in and out in under an hour which was great too.
Dr. Stephen's is efficient, and to the point, but she does not have the best bedside manner. I think she could try to be a little bit warmer in this area. Otherwise, everything else in the appointment went smoothly.
She is teriffic. Friendly and professional.
I definitely recommend Dr. Stephen and her team to other patients! They are so friendly and helpful! I was really nervous to go to a doctor which I don't know. And you also get an appointment soon.
Jacqueline is empathetic yet highly pragmatic. She listened to my concerns with patience and understanding and was able to give me exactly what I needed. Their computers were down the day I came in due to some external factors but she was able to work around it and see me immediately anyway. I highly recommend her.
I was worried that she would not remember me because I am a new patient. She was kind.
Dr. Stephen gave a careful examination and made time to answer my questions. I was a new patient, and very grateful for how everyone in the office made me feel welcome. And it's a major plus that there's an ultrasound lab right in this same group. It turned out we needed to use this feature, and when you're nervous about a result it's so much better to have the facility right there. We did the imaging, discussed the results (happily, not scary!) and I was still on my way after half an hour. Really great practice!
Dr. Stephen has a wonderful way of interacting with her patients. She is quiet, thoughtful, warm, and empathetic even though because of our considerable age differences, I doubt she has ever personally experienced the symptoms that brought me to her office today. Her assistant, Letitia, is also very knowledgeable and caring and great at setting a relaxed and congenial atmosphere. Dr. Stephen has been my doctor for a few years. She is proactive and quick to detect and diagnose incipient problems before I was even aware of them. For that I am very grateful. I highly recommend her and her practice to anyone looking for a caring, competent gynecologist.
I am new to Boston and went in for an annual exam. She was very thorough and addressed all of my concerns. Her assistant was great too! There are so many Dr.s to choose from. I am glad that I chose her :)
i really like Dr Stephen. My only issue with her is that I have had to call more than once to get a call back on an issue that needs to be addressed.
I have previously seen Dr Jackson. I liked Dr Stephen a lot.
Dr. Stephen was very accommodating and kind. She took the time to get to know me and was very professional and warm.
Thorough, knowledgable, great bedside manner. Highly recommend Dr. Stephen!
Dr Stephen is very natural and has a very pleasing personality.
Rushed through service. Front desk was rude. While I was getting checked, a rat ran through.
Dr. Stephen's was professional and thorough in her exam, however she did not have the best bedside manner. As a new patient and first time receiving a pap smear, I was hoping for a little more warmth. She was very curt, and did not handle the nature of the exam and questions in a sensitive manner. Her assistant however was amazing! I can't remember her name, but she did a great job.
Dr. Stephen is the best OB-GYN I have ever had the pleasure of seeing. She is warm, kind, nonjudgmental, and knowledgeable. It was the least painful pelvic exam that I have ever had. The office staff was lovely, very helpful and professional. They also have OB-GYN ultrasound services onsite and all of their imaging studies are performed by radiologists instead of ultrasound technicians. The radiologist who performed my exam was kind, experienced, and professional and he answered all of my questions. I definitely intend to see Dr. Stephen again!
She was very professional and compassionate. I felt comfortable with her care.
I had a gynecological issue while traveling to Boston. Dr. Stephen was able to see me right away and thankfully resolved this issue. Her bedside manner was great and she genuinely seemed to care for my well-being.
I went to Dr. Stephen's office to get an IUD placed today. It was so painful, but Dr. Stephen and her staff were SO friendly and understanding, even calling to check up on me—I couldn't have asked for a better doctor to see and I can't recommend her enough!
She's so caring and really wants her patients to feel comfortable. Highly recommend, esp for newbies
She was wonderful! Definitely recommend her as an ob-gyn! Very thorough, professional, and organized.
It went great.
Had to come to get a procedure done that I was nervous about. She called a few nights before to make sure I didn't have any questions about my procedure. Dr Stephen and her staff were incredibly professional and personable.
Dr. Stephen is a blend of an extremely knowledgeable expert and a caring and warm person. She makes time to call back the patients who call with something pressing and doesn't rush you, either on the phone or in visits. Bring all your questions because you will find she's got the answers. It takes a bit of time to get to know her, but once you do, you will discover an interesting and delightful person.
would recommend anyone to Dr. Stephen! :o)
She and the rest of her staff are absolutely wonderful and do a great job of making you feel comfortable.
Very happy with her
This doctor is professional, operative and friendly. I recommend her for to women who take care of their health.
Dr. Stephen was great! I came in get tested for STIs after only having a checkup for that recently at another doctor's office. She was incredibly kind and understanding reg. my situation and assured me that the billing would work out.
I visited Dr. Stephen to have an IUD placed. She and her assistants were extremely comforting, kind and understanding. It was painful but they walked me through every step of the way and made sure I was alright. I was in and out in under 30 minutes!
I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Stephen to anyone. She takes the time to listen and is completely thorough. So glad she's my doctor.
Friendly and knowledgeable but the appointment was a bit rushed. I filled out a bunch of paperwork beforehand (online) and then had to answer many of the same questions again when I arrived. Doctor was on time.
Best experience with a medical professional that I have had in quite some time.
Very good, very personable, very professional.
Dr. Stephen is kind, compassionate and has a wonderful staff.
Dr. Stephen was kind, thorough, and helpful. I'm so happy that I've found her
I couldn't find the office right away. I called while in the vicinity and the desk manager came out and waved me down. There was no wait time and I found Dr.Stephen to be very warm, thorough and kind. I will be going back for a follow up BC procedure and feel very comfortable in her care.
Consummate professionals. Warm, engaging, friendly, efficient, generous. Why go anywhere else?
My first annual with dr Jackie, went well. She asked a lot of questions. Very gentle with examination , through , quick, and I felt comfortable to ask her some questions. Personable, interested with what I was asking.
She was polite and generous. Me and my wife visited the doctor for gyn checkup.
A bit tricky to find the office. Not the cleanest or nicest looking place once if it there. Could definitely use a facelift to spruce it up and feel more comfortable. The doctor was very kind, took a few minutes to ask questions before the exam. Exam overall was quick and to the point, she explained every step she was doing.
I'm going to be brutally honest in this review and say that I had a pretty bad experience at this office. I was scheduled to have an IUD put in about a year ago with Dr. Stephen. The doctor said it wouldn't hurt at all: "it's just going to feel like a cramp", she said. Unfortunately, no one in the office prepared me for what that pain was going to be like, which was the worst I have experienced in my life. I have never had children, and, despite this, I was not advised to take any kind of pain relief medication. I was not offered to have the procedure done during my period, and I was not offered any comfort from the doctor or her staff. My boyfriend held my hand during my screams, and I was shaking for a good hour after the appointment. The Dr. Stephen was unable to have the IUD inserted because this pain was so unbearable. I was so terrified I decided not to go back. It took me a while to seek another OBGYN who would take the time to actually give me good options for IUD insertion, explain to me why I had nothing to worry about, and give me the confidence to come back. But let this serve as a warning for young women who are seeking a new doctor. It seemed to me as if Dr. Jacqueline's patients are mostly older women as I did not see a single woman younger than the age of forty in the waiting room. It was apparent that the doctor has lost touch or does not have much experience with young women who are looking for an altogether much different kind of professional who doesn't make a procedure like this scarier than it already is.
Very thoughtful, respectful, and well-informed on benefits and risks of my treatment.
The office is a bit tough to find (it's tucked back into a condo complex) but once there it was comfortable and nice. Everyone was lovely and the Dr. Stephen was efficient but listened very well, made me very comfortable and gave me plenty of time for questions. I highly recommend her!
She definitely took her time seeing me and made sure i didnt have any questions. Made sure she got to know me as well. Her staff were awesome as well.
I really appreciate that she takes the time to explain what's going on in more detail
I was very satisfied with my visit with Dr. Stephen, her care, and professionalism.
