I was so impressed with Dr. Phillips - in addition to a very caring bedside manner, he was clearly very knowledgeable and thorough while he patiently and thoughtfully answered all questions. The appointment did not seemed rushed, I did not waitlong at any time point. The pelvic exam was not uncomfortable. The staff up front and the nurse (whose name I forget, I apologize) was warm and caring and was also clearly very knowledgeable. Making the appointment was so easy and I very much appreciated the reminders and the ability to fill out medical history online ahead of time. Wonderful, wonderful doctor and office. Thank you.

He and his staff are astounding! Quite personable and very easy to talk to. No issues about my partner or our 2 year old toddler being in the room. Answered all of our questions and was very, very insistent on callingif I or my partner becomes concerned about anything. So far, I cannot say enough positive things about this man or staff!!

I had a great experience seeing Dr. Phillips for the first time. The entire staff was very friendly. I waited about 10 minutes and was called back. My entire annual plus new patient exam too about 30-45 minutes. He made mefeel very comfortable and answered a ton of questions I had but didn't even ask. So glad I was referred to him by a friend. He's great.

Dr. Phillips was fantastic! I have had terrible luck with OBGYN doctors in the past, and he totally put my mind at ease. They took a little longer than desired to call me back to the room, but that's anywhere yougo. He was very thorough in explaining things to me. And I will definitely be sticking with him!

The practice is located within the St. David's women's center and Dr. Phillips gives patients a code for free up close parking (a small, but appreciated, thing)! The office staff were friendly and efficient, and I got called to go backbefore I had time to pick a magazine. Even the wait in the exam room was less than 5 minutes! I care about the nurses and office staff as much as the doctor, and everyone here was great. My nurse was relaxed, witty, and informative. I was able to schedule a follow up for 2 business days later, so no long turn around time or waiting weeks to get back in! As for Dr. Phillips, he was very thorough when discussing my treatment and I never felt rushed. He had excellent bedside manner and made me feel at ease throughout the exam.

I have had very experiences with pap smears in the past, but Dr. Phillips was very reassuring and had the exam done in less than 10 minutes. I will definitely be returning when needed.
