Very pleasant experience in a beautiful, clean, colorful office with friendly staff and doctor.
Friendly office staff and quick/easy visit! I was in and out in about 30 minutes.
I love going to Nicole McClendon, she is so nice and listens to every concern I have. She takes the time and doesn't rush you out.
Fantastic. Super nice and engaged. She listened. She was kind, knowledgeable and helpful. Thank you!
I was pleased with how quickly I was seen, and with Dr. McClendon's manner and knowledge, but it has been over a month and I have heard nothing from them regarding any results to standard tests. I have called and left messages, and still haven't heard back. I have never had such an experience, and it doesn't elicit much confidence in this office's competence to take care of me and my needs. Will keep trying to get my information.
Didn't rush me, answered all questions. Great bedside manner.
Dr was very nice and easy to talk to. Made me feel extremely comfortable and at ease with the whole process.
I was very happy with my visit and Dr. McClendon. I arrived for my appointment right on time, as I had a difficult time finding the office, and was helped immediately after filling at my paper work. Once taken to the room, the doctor saw me right away. There was no down time or long waits which usually doctors have. Dr. McClendon was also professional, knowledgeable and kind. I plan on making her my primary ob-gyn.
She has been my doctor since I was about 12 years old. Which means I've been seeing her for over 10 years. I could not picture myself going to anyone else. Her locations are convenient for me between home and work which is great.
Dr. McClendon is pleasant and professional. She always remembers me and is easy to talk to. She delivered my now 2-year old son via emergency C-section. What could have been a really bad experience was as painless as possible, and my recovery was quicker than I thought it would be.
I highly recommend Dr. McClendon. She is professional and makes you feel comfortable. Despite seeing her only a few times a year, she remembers details and makes sure you don't feel like just another patient. The staff are courteous and friendly.
I am a new patient of Dr. McClendon's and after my first appointment I would highly recommend her. She spent plenty of time talking to me prior to my exam and I found her knowledgeable and approachable. I was seen promptly and all of the staff members that I interacted with were both friendly and professional.
The Dr was great, answered all of my questions and I did not feel rushed at all. Front desk was amazing, so polite and welcoming! I was seen about 10 minutes after the start of my appt time and spent maybe 5 minutes in the examination room after the nurse left and before the Dr arrived.
Dr mcClendon is a very nice person and a good doctor I highly recommend it
The staff was very nice and professional. I went in for my annual exam and was in and out of the office in 30 minutes. Dr. McClendon is very thorough - taking the time to answer questions and explaining what she was doing and why during each part of the exam. She is friendly and nonjudgmental and makes you feel at ease right away.
Her office has great customer service! As a new patient, there wasn't too much paperwork to fill out and I did not have to wait long to be seen by Dr. McClendon (this includes being seen by the nurse first). As soon as we started talking, one of Dr. McClendon's first question was if I had any questions or concerns I wanted addressed. After our discussion, she asked me again if I had any more concerns. I really thought that was very personable of her. I have yet to meet a Dr. who is willing to listen as much as she did.
I was greeted in the waiting room right at the scheduled time of my appointment, and I only waited 2 minutes in the exam room before Dr. McClendon showed up. She was very attentive and prompt, and I would definitely recommend her to future patients.
Es una excelente la Doctora muy amable y atenta. Todo el personal es excelente voy a recomendarla a dos personas mas para mi tiene un no 5 si no 10 estrellas ???????????????????????????????? muchas gracias!!..
The wait was long but I didn't mind, a woman having a baby came in and clearly that is more important that a simple exam! The kindness of the staff was a above any doctors office I have ever been to! Dr McClendon was great and easy to talk to and walked me through everything as she was doing it. Great experience.
She is wonderful! Positive informative pleasant and competent!!
Shes down to earth and personable. She will listen to you and is very helpful
Very quick - I sat in the waiting area less than 10 minutes once I finished the paperwork. Every single staff member that I had contact with was wonderful. Everyone was friendly, personable and professional and I felt at ease the whole time. Their receptionist in particular stood out to me for both her warm personality and her efficiency.
Very friendly and helpful, made me feel at ease and comfortable.
She and the rest of the staff are great!
All the staff was really friendly. I got blood drawn right there, not at an outside lab. I'd been putting off going to the doctor for a while and now I feel silly for doing so. I was in and out very quickly.
Dr. McClendon was great. Her manner was kind and reassuring. The exam was done quickly. She answered all my questions and offered up even more information than requested.
I really like Dr. McClendon. She is very patient and takes her time talking through things with you. She never makes me feel rushed and she is very diligent about her follow through. The only down side to her office is that parking can be difficult and I recommend that you give yourself an extra 30 minutes, but she is worth it.
The staff at the office has got to be the kindest staff I have ever experienced in a doctor's office. I was pleasantly surprised!! I was in for my annual pap and Dr McClendon was very kind. She came in to talk before having me change for the exam, which was lovely since asking about IUDs was easier in clothes than without. She told me whenever she was about to do something and touched tools to my leg first so I knew what kind of temperature to expect.
I am a new patient and my first experience with her was excellent. She was very attentive, listened to my concerns, and I felt she really looked out for my best interest and truly cared. Very friendly and caring. So glad I found her on here. Highly recommend her.
Dr. McClendon is kind and understanding. She did not make me feel uncomfortable or judged in any way, which was nice and put me at ease. She gave detailed explanations of contraceptive options and helped me choose one that would work best for my lifestyle. She took plenty of time with me and I never felt rushed.
She was a great doctor and made me feel very comfortable!
The office is pretty old. The equipment is not new and the space is really small. I went in for an annual exam. The nurse was nice. The exam was pretty much as expected for an annual appointment. It did seemed rushed, but she did answer all my questions and concerns. She has really good bedside manner and made me feel comfortable in an awquard situation. :-) Over all a good appointment. I hope to keep seeing them in the future.
The doctor is very professional, takes her time to get to know you and your health profile. I felt very comfortable and at ease during my visit.
Dr. McClendon was fantastic and the nurses at the practice were absolutely amazing, some of the best I have ever seen. Highly recommended!
I read a lot of great reviews of Dr. McClendon and I was really lucky to get in so quickly with her, and that she was located less than 5 miles from my house! She was very nice during her intro. She did move pretty quickly, but it was what I expected for a busy office. When I asked her a question she stopped and made sure to answer it thoroughly. The woman that checked me in at the front desk was also very nice and welcomed me as a new patient.
Everyone in the office was very friendly and welcomed me to my new "home."
Great doctor. Made me feel comfortable and safe. Very laid back and non judgmental, gave me her full attention. The staff are all warm and welcoming too!
She was awesome and informative!
Efficient and helpful with all my questions!
The walls (and doors) are a little thin. You can hear the neighbors conversations, hallway conversations all while sitting in your paper gown wondering when you will be seen. Great bedside however once in the room, very professional as well.
As always doctor Nicole is the best..
Great visit. Really happy to find such a great Doctor.
My first visit- she is very knowledgable, friendly and competent doctor! Even her nurse is excellent. Smooth visit, highly recommended for women's issues. She put me at ease right away by her experience and knowledge!
I've never been a fan of appointments like these, but this was by far the best experience I've had at one. The staff was very friendly, the wait time was next to none, and Dr. McClendon was nice, professional, and courtesy. I would definitely recommend her and Healthcare for Women to any friend.
Dr. McClendon was wonderful. She took the time to really talk to me about my concerns and talked me through every procedure. She was very caring and professional.
Dr. McClendon is a caring and professional doctor. She doesn't rush you and takes time to answer your questions. If something is out of her specialty, she is willing to point the patient in the right direction.
Dr. McClendon was very welcoming and made me feel comfortable. She took the time to answer my questions and clearly explained things to me. My appointment was made 1.5 weeks prior using zocdoc, and I received 2 confirmation emails. However, when I arrived for my appointment they had no record of it. I showed the receptionist my confirmation emails and she seemed surprised and confused because I was not in their system nor on their schedule. However, she was very accommodating, nice and apologetic about the situation. She squeezed me in as the last patient of the morning. I had to wait over an hour to finally be seen, but everyone was very nice and apologetic about it so I did not mind.
She wasn't in a hurry and easy to talk to.
She was very kind and explained everything that we would be doing in that appointment prior to the exam. She was friendly and open to questions. I would definitely recommend her!
I had an excellent experience that this office. I got lost going to the appointment and showed up 45 minutes late, but they still saw me within 10 minutes. I then needed to go get two separate ultrasounds, and the office got me appointments with radiology the same day, and in with a specialist right after to read the ultrasound reviews. The radiology department was also fast and they very nice-- in the same building with Dr. McClendon. I also then took the results back to Dr. McClendon, and she chatted with me about the results even though I didn't have an appointment. I was able to see 5 doctors in 4 hours-- everyone was so helpful and knowledgeable. One of the best Doctor offices I've ever been to-- the whole hospital was great.
She was friendly but very professional and made me feel comfortable.
Excellent bed side manner and wonderful staff overall! I would definitely recommend!
She is always really nice and asks if I have any questions or concerns. More than anything the exam is always very quick and she really comforts you as she talks you through what she's doing.
She's was very thoughtful and kind. She listened to my concerns and gave me many options without being confusing. I highly recommend her, especially for younger women who have never been to this type of doctor before.
Dr.Nicole McClendon was very friendly and knowledgeable.I highly recommend her to all women.
Great bedside manner. Friendly and attentive and really listened to me.
Dr. McClendon is an awsome doctor. She was easy to talk to and very knowledgeable.
Nicole was very friendly, informative, and comforting.
Dr. McClendon was so informative and understanding. I was so nervous (I hate the feeling of sitting in a Doctor's office), but under the circumstances, she made me feel quite comfortable. I will definitely see her regularly!
Everyone was very professional and friendly. It was a quick appointment so I did not have that much interaction. But overall I thought Dr McClendon was great and so was her staff. Highly recommend. :)
I have been with this practice for 20+years, but this was my first appointment with Dr. McClendon. I felt very comfortable with her, and confident in her experience.
Dr. McClendon was amazing, it's been a couple years since I have made a GYN appointment. She had wonderful bedside manor and made me feel right at ease. She didn't rush me and was genuinely interested in my well being. She was very nice and made sure I was comfortable every step if the appointment. I highly recommend Dr McClendon!
Wonderful visit with Nicole - will definitely be seeing her from now on. The staff was warm and friendly, and called me by my first name (something my GP doesn't even do). She sat down and talked with me first about everything that was going on, and did a full work up. I never felt like she was rushing me out the door.
She was pleasant, friendly and helpful. I liked her (bedside manner)
Fantastic! She was very friendly and fast. I strongly recommend her to women of all ages
I thought she was friendly and responsive to my questions.
Dr. McClendon is always wonderful, caring, thorough and professional.
I thought she was a very thorough doctor and I will continue to use her.
Very professional and had time to listen to my questions and concerns.Best exam i have ever had from any OBGY. I will recommend her to all my friends.
She is very profecional know her since 2008 and is the best.
I enjoyed having Dr. McClendon as my OB, she was pleasant and had a great bedside manner. She answered all my questions and was accommodating in any way possible. She made me feel like a priority. I highly recommend.
My only complaint is that the office does not have an answering machine or voicemail service so that I can leave a message. It does not even have call waiting. Every time I call there to set up an appointment, ask a question or make changes, I get a busy signal...it's impossible to do anything over the phone there. You have to do appts online.
I saw her twice. Wait time was long. And visits were too short; I could not ask all my questions and I did not hear all the comments on my tests results. Also, I had an impression she wants me to do more tests and procedures when, according to other specialists, it's not necessary.
She is very professional and knowledgable. I would recommend her to a friend.
Nicole was very friendly and professional. I've tried a few doctors on the area and have been unsatisfied. I definitely plan to stick with Nicole for awhile. There was a bit of a wait but that may have been due to processing, etc since it was my first visit. When all was said and done, I was out of there in a little over an hour and a half. Leave a little extra time for parking and finding the office since the hospital is pretty large.
The front desk needs to be more professional, They had me wait almost a hour to see the docter. They never let her know I was there. I thought my appointment went ok. This was my first visit so I will see how it is for a few more visits.
Dr McClendon was one of the best doctors I've ever been to. She was friendly and took time to answer all of my questions. I highly recommend her!
Dr. McClendon took time talk with me and made me feel comfortable during my annual exam. I would highly recommend her.
Very friendly, down to earth person who answered all of my questions and made me feel good about being at the office. Also, the staff were very helpful and efficient in answering questions and getting me seen.
Dr. McClendon has a great bedside manner. She has a very calming presence and is straightforward, articulate and nice. Going to the obgyn is never anyone's favorite activity but Dr. McClendon will make your experience a positive one.
she was great explained thoroughly all my concerns and questions.
She's great...very professional and knowledgable
I was very happy with the time and care shown to me. Dr. Mclendon is very special and I'm blessed to have met her thus far!
Dr. McClendon was great! Very comforting and easy to talk to. However, the office staff were not very helpful and made me call my insurance company to figure out my copay.
She is very professional but has a way of making you feel very comfortable in her office. She does a great job at listening and helping you out.
She spent a lot of time answering my questions, providing education, and learning about me and my health history. I did not feel rushed and was comforted by her calm and kind demeanor.
The Doctor was wonderful and I would recommend her. Front desk staff was significantly less than wonderful....
I really liked Dr. Nicole McClendon, she made me feel comfortable, and explained everything very clearly. However, her nurse that wieghed, took my blood pressure, and brought me to the room was very quick, rude, and not professional. The nurse walked in on me while I was changing and told me to look the other way, and also bumped into me on my way out without apologizing. I don't know who she was but she needs a serious sitdown. I would definately go back because DR. Nicole McClendon was GREAT, but I would inquire about a different nurse next time. The nurse is apart of a very small portion of the general exam anyway.
I love her, she's great! She's really sweet and caring, she answers all your questions and tries to find the best solution for your problem.
The office staff was busy but efficient, and Dr McClendon was straightforward and pleasant. I had a quick, painless experience!
