Verified Patient Reviews
The only doctor I’ve ever been spoken to like another person, I wasn’t belittled or spoken down to. She actually cares about her patients. Finally found someone to continue seeing.
I adored her!!! She made me feel so at ease and I get so nervous going to the doctor. She was just wonderful!!!
My doctor visit was wonderful the doctors and nurses are very friendly
Melissa was the most incredible doctor I've seen yet. She truly cared and made me feel so comfortable. If you are a woman in need of an OBGYN, I highly recommend her!
An absolutely fantastic experience across the board. I wish that I had found Dr. Counihan earlier!
I went in as a new patient and immediately I was warmly welcomed by the desk staff. When I was called back, the nurse who helped me was also very nice. Dr. Counihan was fantastic! The check up was quick and painless and she took some time answer all my questions about birth control options. These kinds of appointments can leave you feeling a little vulnerable and everyone at this office did a wonderful job of erasing apprehensions and nerves!
Dr. Couniham made me feel comfortable, answered all my questions, and the office was very efficient.
I really enjoyed the office. The staff was warm and friendly--always smiling. I also like that Dr. Counihan was very knowledgeable, and went into detail about my concerns. I feel comfortable going here which is in stark contrast to my last GYN. I also appreciate the fact that she works out of two offices, so my visits are convenient.
Dr. Counihan is great! This was my first visit to a gynecologist (long overdue) and she made me feel very comfortable and answered all my questions without judgement. I immediately texted my friends a picture of her business card and recommended they see her.
Very nice and easygoing. She made me feel comfortable.

Dr. Counihan and professional and courteous. She asked me about certain issues were going that we discussed during my previous visit which was nice. I highly recommend!
Very fast into the office, She and her staff were all extremely pleasant, and kind.
A+. It was my first time at this office, and I was running late due to elevator problems in the parking garage plus the unexpected construction on Collier. Going to the gynecologist is always stressful to begin with, but I left feeling fantastic. Dr. Counihan is wonderful! She was friendly and knowledgable, and she made the awkwardness of an annual exam feel much less horrifying. The office assistants at reception were lovely too! Check-in was simple and fast. Also, the nurse who attended me was fantastic. She was funny, warm, and was able to administer a shot without any pain, and let me tell you I am a child when it comes to needles... I was astounded by the whole experience! I felt l like I left a coffee date rather than every woman's favorite time of year... the annual checkup. THANK YOU!
Very friendly, caring, and professional.
Couldn't have asked for a better visit! The staff was friendly, and Dr. Counihan was awesome! Definately reccomending her to my friends and family in the area!
