I arrived early for my appointment but didn't have to wait more than a few minutes. I can't say I ever "enjoy" my annual exams, but when the last thing the doctor says makes me laugh, that's as good as it gets.

Office staff is friendly. I was taken into the exam room quickly, but waited over 30 minutes to see the doctor. Though i think she has a good handle on medical treatment, she could be a bit nicer... Comes across as cold and unfriendly.

She inserted an IUD which was the most painful thing I ever felt. She left the room saying she would get a nurse to check to make sure it was in the right place because of the pain I was in. I laid there for awhile and finally when she came back she told me to get dressed. I said that the nurse hadn't been by to check yet and she said "Well, I've got other patients so . . " I ended up leaving without a nurse checking and the experience was so painful I didn't want anyone or anything near me for a month. And I'm a pretty pain tolerant person who plays a lot of sports. This was a terrible experience. She said to come back to her as soon as I was pregnant but there's NO WAY I'm going back to her. I'll find someone else.

Relatively quick and few questions asked (Both a good and a bad thing). No introductions or handshaking feels like a bad start to an appointment with a new doctor. Not sure I'll be back. Everyone else in the office was fantastic!

She was very unfriendly. She was focused on a problem that I told her was being addressed by another doctor. She changed my medication based on one test and offered very little information about potential side effects. I got to the office 45 min early and was seen right away, and when I left there was no onesie the waiting room. Despite that, she seemed rushed and was literally walking out the door as she was telling me that she couldn't speak to the side effects of my current medication compared to what she was recommending.

HORRIBLE! I went in for a routine appointment and specifically asked that a procedure (pap smear) not be performed. I told the nurse this multiple times. I was going to find a doctor I trust to do it, because Dr. Cutting is notoriously rough and makes me very uncomfortable. I only went to this office because I needed an appointment to get more birth control last minute, and surprise, surprise, they always have availability. I haven't been sexually active for quite some time and was absolutely adamant about forgoing the pap. As I'm about to lay down I tell Dr. Cutting AGAIN not to do it and she says she won't. 15 minutes of pain later she tosses me a sanitary napkin and confirms that she did exactly what I told her not to. As a woman when I say no, that means NO. I bled for 12 hours! When I voiced my outrage they didn't care one ounce. I left crying and humiliated. This experience makes me understand why woman avoid going to the OB/GYN, ultimately putting their health at risk. I put aside my first poor experience with this place and it only got worse. Heed the bad reviews and stay away!!!

Overall, my experience at the clinic was very good - the receptionist and the nurse were attentive and warm. Dr. Cutting came in, asked if I was here for an annual pap smear, did the procedure, and left. She didn't introduce herself or ask my name. She didn't ask if I had any questions or concerns, and she probably spent all of 3 minutes in the room with me. I may try to switch to another doctor within the same clinic.

Everyone in the office was nice and the Dr was knowledgeable. This was the first time in 15 years I had a pelvic exam, pap smear without screaming in pain from the position you have to get into due to me herniated disc. Well done! I won't avoid appointments any more.

I've been in and out of this practice 4 times in the past month for a UTI. While it's not the end of the world as far as medical issues go, it is frustrating and uncomfortable. After seeing a few nice PAs and nurses for my first 3 visits, this week I saw Dr. Cutting. Everything people say about her terrible bedside manner is true. She was very abrupt, dismissive and spent fewer than 10 minutes with me. I don't think I finished a single one of my sentences as I spoke with her-- she cut me off each time and could not have appeared less interested in my medical issue. I will not schedule an appointment with her again.

Overall the visit and examination went okay but the pap smear test was very rough and very uncomfortable to the point that I had bleeding discharge all day still on-going and my anus also bled quite a bit. This is my 3rd similar visit with Physicians & Midwives and I've had dozens of pap tests in my life but this is the first time that I had bleeding and discomforting pain in my lower abdomen. I hope other patients won't experience this.

I felt like I was treated more like a medical chart than a patient. I tried to ask questions about alternate options and was cut off and just felt like I wasn't treated as a person with feelings or emotions who might be hurt by being called obese within seconds of walking in the door. I won't be returning.
