Person at the front was nice. It felt like the nurse who met with me judged my sexual orientation and lookedvisibly relaxed after I said I was with a male partner. I did not enjoy being told seeing a gynecologist was part of being a woman (sex is female, but who said I identified as a woman?) or being laughed at when I asked questions that only sound silly because you are used to working in women's health. Dr. Graham (or whoever saw me) asked me why I used tobacco products...did not feel comfortable answering that since you didn't do much of anything except make me feel like my personal life was invaded some more, and did not get anywhere further with my original question. I left before I did the blood tests, because I felt incredibly sick to my stomach, but I don't think I'll be back.

Dr. Graham was great asked me very open-ended questions to understand the whole story of my problem. I only had an issue with the blood work draw, I had to be seated back in the waiting room, as I passed byI didn’t see the person busy and it took more then 10 minutes for The lab person to call me And no one else was waiting for blood work besides me as I presume ,So that was disappointing, the front desk ladies even apologized on the ladies behalf, I enjoyed their customer service, They need more lab techs that demonstrate a sense of urgency with patients when I a schedule to follow can’t wait too long. Once I got frustrated I asked her how long will it take she stayed quiet so I decided to walk out, and the ladies at the front desk offered me options to come in another day.

Dr. Graham is great! Super professional, fast, and thorough. She answered all of my questions, did the necessary tests and I was still in and out of the office 20 minutes after my appointment started. I have had doctors in thepast where it takes at least 20 minutes before the doctor is even in the room with you.

The most overlooked team member at any organization is that of the person serving in reception. Dr. Graham and her physician's assistant were superb. Of equal importance, the woman serving in your front office role was outstanding - courteous,professional and helpful. As a very new resident to VA, I am so pleased to have found this group to serve my OB/GYN medical needs.

Dr. Graham was all business and provided top notch care. As this was my first time seeing her, I was little nervous. But she quickly put me at ease with her professional demeanor. After discussing the nature of my visit, shequickly and effectively provided treatment, as well as answered my questions. The office staff were helpful and polite, which was especially appreciated since I was a new patient.

Honestly I was nervous after reading some of the reviews but Dr. Graham is exactly what I want when I go to my annual appt. It was quick and relatively painless. She was direct and to the point. There was nononsense she asked all about my current health and discussed basic side effects of my birth control that no one has told me since I have been on them. I thought she had a good bedside manner and am glad to have found a great doc so close to home. However, I will say the office is in desperate need of a face lift. The whole building reminded me of an old college campus building where the professors held office hours. But the staff was great, definitely won't hold it against them.

Wow. This is the first time and the last time i will see Dr. Graham. I walked out of the appointment feeling insulted and disrespected. Dr. Graham dismissed my primary concern for making the appointment and told me, "don't get yourselfworked up" without even doing a physical exam. This was also after i told her i have a family history, which led to complications resulting in my mother's death. I do not understand how she can conclude i am fine without even giving me an examine or asking about my symptoms? She tried to write me a new prescription for my birth control pill, when i clearly stated before that i wanted to look into different options for birth control. By this point, I concluded that she did not even want to listen to my concerns or give me appropriate medical attention. After i restated that i wanted to learn about different birth control options she rattled off a whole list as if she were telling me her grocery list. She suggested the IUD would most likely be my best option due to my concerns with my family medical history. Then told me about a form to check with my insurance to see if my insurance would cover it, and told me that i could schedule the next appointment with any of the other providers. When I went to check out at the front desk the receptionist asked which IUD I was looking into for the insurance verification form. I gave her a blank stare since the Dr. didnt even tell me there were different brands of IUDs. That's when the receptionist was kind enough to hand me the different brochures of IUDs, so i could look into them on my own time. Dr. Graham was a waste of my time and resources. Never again.

Office staff was incredibly friendly! Dr. Graham was nice and answered my questions. The appointment was very fast- which was good but I was hoping I got all the information I had wanted. The only thing I wish was a bitdifferent was I wish I could have met with the doctor and chatted for a few minutes about everything, then changed and had my exam. Just a little more comfortable in my clothes to chat! :)
