She was incredible, I was nervous about going to see her just because it was my second trip to the gyno but she is incredible. She explained things in a way that put me at ease, and didn't belittle any of my concerns.

Dr. Stephen is absolutely amazing and definitely cares about her patients. She called me the day after a very sensitive appointment to check on me, and seemed like she truly cared how I was feeling the next time I saw her.She’s a great listener, explains things well, and makes me feel as comfortable as possible. I would definitely recommend Dr. Stephen to any woman.

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’thave 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!

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.

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 itwouldn'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.

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 shewas able to work around it and see me immediately anyway. I highly recommend her.

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 labright 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 broughtme 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.

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 andprofessional. 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!
