Although some of Dr. Jay's interests align with mine in terms of functional medicine and looking at the bigger picture of one's health, I found it extremely unprofessional that I was not notified by her/her office before I saw her thatshe does not prescribe birth control other than condoms or diaphrams. Though the other doctor in the office does, and she offered for me to see her for the insertion, I was still very put off and feel this information is important to divulge to patients BEFORE they are seen-- I had already spent over 45 in the office. I felt that she tried to coerce me out of getting a copper IUD, and she said nothing positive it. I did learn a few things from her about the way the body works in relationship to absorbing and utilizing hormones, and some ideas for how to regulate my cycle, but I will not be going back to see her. I wanted to let people know if you are looking for BC (hormonal or not) she's not your chick. Even if you are not going for birth control, I would be aware of the fact that she does give off a judgemental vibe. I have pretty thick skin with doctors, and I still haven't been able to shake this feeling of being demeaned/judged. Front desk staff was awesome. MassHealth accepted. I rarely write reviews on these kind of websites, so know that this is because I really don't want anyone else to go through that experience without being prepared for it.

Waited too long for having had an appointment, wasn’t prepared with the right tools for a routine Pap smear, and during a vulnerable state as a patient, Dr. Jay spoke to me about her religious faith and her belief in ‘naturalfamily planning,’ attempting to stray me away from oral contraceptives which was the main reason why I was visiting her. Felt it was inappropriate behavior for her as a gynecologist and left feeling uncomfortable and judged.
