The receptionists kind of made me feel like they didn’t care or had something better to do, weren’t rude or anything just very little eye contact and were laughing with each other. The doctor however was very nice, efficient and answered my questions.

The staff was very unprofessional. I schedule a same day appointment for a routine well woman exam but the system mark me as an established patient going in for an acUte issue and when I explained to her what Isaid to schedule the appointment it was very rude and even handed me a paper so I knew the difference between a preventative visit and a six. I thought that was uncalled for and definitely.

Overall, I felt like I was just an appointment they needed to clear and not a person. They weren't particularly rude, just very short. This is my first pregnancy so I guess I was expecting the nurses and doctor to bemore detailed, let me ask questions, and maybe even seem slightly happy for me. Contrarily, they went through the motions and gave me some very basic information, then told me they would recommend me to another doctor at the end of my first trimester because they don't see patients after their first trimester. I was really confused! I will say they were very quick and she has lots of available appointments.

This was my 1st time here. I work in the downtown area so the location was perfect. Check in was a breeze,since I did ny paperwork online Dr. Schlotterer was great,she was informative and took the time to learn my history.I've already referred someone there. Oh & making an appointment was so easy. I went on zocdoc & saw she had an opening in less than 2 days! My old Dr's office couldn't get me for 2 weeks. I'm transferring my records over to Dr. Schlotterer's office.

I was the only patient in the waiting room and it took 20 min for me to get called back. The doctor also stated when she walked in that she was sick and would try not to get me sick. Sheseemed very interested in getting in and out and not talking about my concerns. I hope I don't get sick.

Although I? made the appointment with Dr. Mary Schlotterer, I? was seen by a PA who was shadowed by Dr. Schlotterer. Very minimal exam, I? felt like it was just an in and out visit just to say the PA didan exam. I? would not recommend this doctor, or go back there again myself.

Personally my experience wasn't terrible but it was a bit odd. I didn't feel that the office was very organized. I didn't fill out my medical history myself, instead I answered the questions aloud to the medical assistant. She wasn't properlytrained on how to ask the questions so luckily a nurse practitioner happened to come in to listen and help her out. I felt like a practice patient and it was a little uncomfortable. When the questionnaire was over I was given my gown to change into and I was barely about to change when the Dr. barely knocked and then barged in as I was asking for another minute. She quickly closed the door again and once I was given a fair moment to change the Dr. came in again with her nurse practitioner student who ended up conducting the exam (which I wasn't told until it was happening). I just wish that I would have had some warning as to who would be examining me but again, I felt like a practice specimen without any warning. Lastly, she took off before asking me if I had any questions (which I did). Wasn't the best experience I've had, I would research before coming here.

The doctor was good - didn't really have any answers for me which I can understand. The nurse was terrible. She wasn't personable at all. She wasn't listening to me. She asked the same questions multiple times and talked over mewhen I was answering her questions. She was starting to piss me off. I did not get her name.

I booked an appointment towards the end of the year, while I understand the nature of benefits and the busy nature of the season, a patient should not arrive before your office manager, or the doctor. I sat outside of theiroffice waiting for their team to show up, because it was so late into the year I didn't complain. However, upon entering into the clinic and meeting her staff I was not impressed. I felt rushed out the door from the moment I arrived, there was lack of information & guidance from the doctor. But worst of all she actually said "pap smears are only necessary if you are having intercourse with men". Unbelieveable! Do your research and stay away.

She didn't have any replacement Implanon and removed it from my arm before confirming she had no replacement. Left two huuuge scars, and doubted me when I said that I could feel everything. Also, I keep getting obnoxious emails from the"skin tightening" or general aesthetics side of her office. I didn't want to unsubscribe because I plan to have future visits but I just bit the bullet and decided I need a new OBGYN.

Mary Schlotterer was awesome and the front office was good. I got in in less than 30 minutes and she's very knowledgeable about her subject, however the only downside is the office is in a pretty bad area that I didn'tfeel extremely safe in outside, but other than that I'd say 5 stars.

I had been a patient of Doctor Schlotterer for over 7 years. When her Ahwatukee office closed, I thought the drive was too far and decided to find a new doctor. 4 years. And I never found a doctor half asgood or confident as Doctor Schlotterer! I decided for Christmas, I was going to give myself, my doctor back-- it seriously felt like coming home! If you are searching for a competent, confident doctor who helps you take your health into your own hands-- look no further!

She was great! All of the other comments that people have left about her being nice and educating her patients are true. My only complaint is that they didn't look at the information that I filled out through Zoc Doc, sobe prepared to answer all of the same questions over again. Or, it might be easier if you just print out your own copy of the questions to have them on hand (if you can).

The wait was pretty long, especially considering I came early and was the first appointment after they closed for lunch. However I had plenty of time, so that wasn't overly concerning to me. When I arrived (about 15 minutes prior tomy appointment), the office was dark and the doors were locked, so I thought they may have booked me when they were closed. Then I called their number and the message machine said they were closed for lunch, so I waited. I would recommend putting up a sign at lunch time because I almost left. The person at the front desk was a little cold, but I don't think that is very unusual for a doctor's office. She got my insurance confirmed so that is all that mattered to me there! The intake person who weighed me, took my vitals, etc. was fine. She didn't really seem to interested in what we were doing but overall I have no complaints. I was happy with the doctor. My previous gyno I felt did not ask enough questions of me or try to get to know the 'whole' me. I felt like Dr. Schlotterer did ask the appropriate questions and I don't feel like she was just asking me questions off a questionnaire. She also was very informative and kind whenever I asked questions. I will see her again.

The individuals working at the front desk insisted that I pay a very large deductible that my insurance 'wasn't going to cover.' Come to find out, my insurance covered 90% of what they charged me and when I called them toask about a refund (with my insurance explanation of benefits in hand), they REFUSED and told me I wouldn't have had to pay the large fee during my visit if it was already paid for by my insurance. It's very frustrating to know I have good insurance and to be a fresh-out-of-college adult just trying to get good sexual healthcare and to be so obviously taken advantage of. They are a gynecologist office, yes, but they're also a med spa and push those products heavily to the point of making patients uncomfortable. Point blank: they care more about money than comfortable and comprehensive healthcare.
