I really enjoyed the fact that I could see my gynecologist and not have the awkward silence or attention drawn to anything undesirable. We had pleasant conversation and addressed all of my health related questions and thoroughly planned for the future. I highly recommend her.

I’ve been here twice now. The second time I just went was for birth control. Although they take me immediately, The doctor barely discussed options with me. I expressed that I wasn’t sure which one I wanted and they didn’t reallydiscuss it but kind of just pushed me towards one. Nice people. Especially the desk staff. But they just don’t really take their time and discuss things with you.

Dr Gelpi was incredibly rude and so cold. I would never recommend her to anyone. She wasn't compassionate. She was judgemental it seemed and very rude and argumentative. I will never ever go back.

This place was great, short wait, kind staff. The Dr. had great bedside manner and carried on a conversation during the exam, I felt very comfortable. Physically, I felt less comfortable. She was a little rough and I left with somepain and a little concern that my IUD had been knocked out of place. If I didn't have an IUD I wouldn't really care about some soreness, but I do and I am paranoid about something happening. So for that reason alone I probably won't return.

She was quite snappy like said in previous reviews and I was asked to call back for results after a week which usually I'm told 3 days but anyways I call back and they make me feel dumb for thinking myresults would be ready by then but I explain that they're the ones that told me to call back... so they tell me they will give me a call once they are ready so now it's been a total of 3 weeks and still no call. Tried contacting the office once again & I just got a constant ring with no answer. I will not be returning

Spectacular bedside manner,great staff, great doctor. In the last, my women wellness visits have always been awkward. She lessens that awkwardness by making conversation. You're no longer thinking about the bright light up your vagina or that your legs are up in stirrups lol

She was by far the worst doctor I have encountered. I'm under 21 so I wasn't required to get a pap smear, and this doctor didn't care to actually ask me my age until I was squirming in pain on thetable. It was incredibly irresponsible of her to do and I wouldn't recommend this woman to anyone.

Dr. Gelpi was a very straight forward doctor. I came in for my annual and that's what I got - nothing more, nothing less. Her bedside manner wasn't the best, in my opinion. I was ridiculed for the first 10 minutesregarding my lack of education around IUDs, and she wasn't as gentle as I would have preferred during the actual exam.

The doctor don't even ask me if I have any questions. Which I still have a question. But my insurance cover well visit only once a year. So now I have to pay out of my packet for a different doctorvisit. The doctor was seems on hurry. So I don't think I will come back to their office. It's kind of doctors who cares about getting paid not about their patients.

Excellent facility. The staff and the doctor are amazing. There was a small wait but that is because those who schedule appts, need to be there on time. It is important for everyone to be on time. Well worth the wait!

At my appointment the doctor found out that I was using the arm implant. At first when I said the name, she had no idea what I was talking about. Once I explained it, she insulted it and talked badly aboutmy doctor who would be willing to allow me to get this form of birth control. It is the only method I have found that works well for me. Then, her assistant tried handing her lube for the manual exam and she refused it. The ordeal was extremely uncomfortable and comparing to experiences with other doctors, I feel she was way too aggressive and left me in pain for the remainder of the day. She kept trying to claim that family medical history that I stated was incorrect. She has never spoke to my family, so she had no right to tell me that the medical information I provided was wrong. Then, I never was notified of any results of the exam, so I had to assume that the results were fine. I will never use this doctor again. She is completely unprofessional and rude.
