I would not recommend Dr. Hudson. She spent less than 5 minutes in the room with me and was very cold.

I have been seeing Dr. Hudson for over a year now and I think she is great. She answers all of my questions and gives me advise on any issues. The wait time is never usually long either. The only thingI wish that would change is the check in process each visit.

I love Dr. Hudson. I've been seeing her for years. Her bedside manner is exceptional, she's easy to talk to, and the visit is as comfortable as is possible for a visit of such nature.

I've been seeing Dr. Hudson for over a decade. She's a consummate professional with excellent bedside manner and who always takes her time to address any concerns one may have. I do however, despise the practice she's part of. Not onlythere are many redundancies with submitting and updating your information (it has to be done twice or more per appointment), they always try to charge me a co-pay for my annual and have threatened to cancel my appointment if I did not comply. I'm the benefits admin for my company so I'm well aware of what's covered. Apparently it's their "office policy" to charge a co-pay. I've also had an appointment canceled after arriving because I was not informed of the pre-requisites of the visit in advance. The staff is a mixed bag of incredibly rude to professional. In short - lover Dr. Hudson, highly dislike Maiden Lane Medical Practice.

Amazing. Had a bad experience with a previous dr so wasn’t looking forward to seeing another one, but this was everything I needed- sympathetic, clear, explained the what and why of my situation and walked me through the different options.

I will never forget when this doctor told me that much of the time, complaints of yeast infections are an indication of a psychological issue. I would not recommend her to anyone.

I have conflicting feelings. This is my first time with her and this place. pro - She's concise and clear with explanation. - looks like she knows what she's doing con - She's rushed. - talked over me. didn't have achance to explain all my concerns - waited 30 min to be taken vitals, after nurse taken everything, another 10-15min in waiting area before I saw her - scheduled an invasive procedure/exam and didn't give any paper work regarding preparation. Ok I get maybe its a very normal and small procedure, but I don't even know if its whole anesthesia or local only, didn't explain risk, and I didn't even get any written instructions on what to do afterwards. Can't find any notes on patient portal either besides 1 followup appointment date and time after the procedure. - the nurse isn't well trained or careful, very concerned about how or if they care about infection. The lube they used was open and put back upside down - the opening was in direct contact with desk I would maybe recommend the doctor, cuz what she says make sense. but will not recommend the facility.

I could hear the doctor standing outside my room as I waited complaining about how tired she was. When she came in, she rushed through the exam and was extremely impatient with my questions, sighing and jiggling her leg each time I asked a question.

I like Dr. Hudson, but dealing with the staff at this office is perpetually frustrating. At every visit, they try to charge me a co-pay, even though I don't have one; I have to call my insurance provider on the spot(every time!) and connect them to the office to avoid paying the charge. I've also had problems after every visit with how things going to the laboratory are coded. I'll receive a bill, call my insurance company, and be told that the tests should be covered but the doctor's office coded them incorrectly. It sometimes takes weeks of calling the office before I can get someone who can tell me how to correct this (the procedure seems to change between every visit). I will probably look for a new OB/GYN, because the hassle is just not worth it.

Dr. Hudson was on vacation today. I was not informed of that. The staff were rather flippant about it. I was able to see another doctor within a half hour so it worked out okay. Not thrilled, but will still see Dr. Hudson as she is very good.

She inserted the speculum without even warning me, which was totally unacceptable! She should have been much more gentle overall. And as I was leaving I heard her saying something pejorative about me to a nurse. Would never, ever go back.

I've been a patient of Dr. Hudson's for over a decade, and I really like her. However, I do not like the practice she works with. I have asked the front desk repeatedly not to text me, because I don't needappointment reminders, health nudges, birthday wishes, etc. from a doctor's office by text. If someone wants that, then great, but I've told them on at least three occasions that I don't. They continue to text me, even waking me up at 1:00am on my birthday with a text two years in a row. I feel like I'm in a relationship with their patient management software instead of having a true doctor/patient relationship. As much as I like Dr. Hudson, I'm considering changing doctors because of the practice.

Office staff was friendly despite the long wait. Nurse was personable. Doctor talked over me when I was explaining my concerns and then was dismissive and wouldn’t allow me the space to explain what had been happening with my health. Iknow she was running behind, but I felt like she was in a huge hurry and couldn’t really be bothered to get to know me or take me seriously. I left feeling as though I still needed to see another doctor as my concerns were not addressed.

i first scheduled an appointment with dr. hudson and was rescheduled for the following which was already an inconvenience but not a big deal. once i arrived i was told to pay a balance that i was not aware of andcaught me by surprise. i was unhappy about it but paid my dues anyways. i waited in the waiting after that for a half hour then was taken to the exam room where i wait an addition 40 minutes. apparently i was forgotten about. the doctor was quick with my appointment and didn’t seem to concerned about my visit. she prescribed me my medicine and i left. i thought i found my go to gyno :( but this was not it.

She actually seemed very present the last time I saw her. Usually she's rushing through, barely remembers me (and I've gone quite frequently to see her), and leaves without even saying goodbye or making it clear the appointment is over. Shewas better this last time. She definitely knows her stuff - she's just doesn't care to create a real connection with her patients. I guess that's just her style.

My visit was at 12:10.. I arrived at 12p and was not seen until 12:40p. When the Doctor arrived she was very short with me and it seemed rushed. She prescribed a medication but I couldn't understand what it was for,when asked she threw large medical terms my way but didn't explain thoroughly. I literally had to WebMD the medicine to understand which defeats the purpose of speaking with a dr. I spoke with the nurse about the doctor's shortness. She seemed shocked and apologized. Not the best first visit to a new office. Also, I received conflicting conflicting info. Over the phone I was told they do not put in the nexplanon birth control, yet during my visit the doctor said they do, but she doesn't do it so she had no information about the procedure. On my notes when I booked my visit, I put that I wanted more info about the nexplanon insertion/removal -_-... not very helpful.

Very efficient appointment, everything was pretty clinical and over quickly, which I like. Probably not right for you if you want a lot of emotional support and hand holding, though I'm sure if I had needed to ask more questions Dr Hudson would have taken the time to answer them.

I have been going to Dr Hudson for 10 years now. She gets right to the point and makes the appointments a breeze. She also performed a colposcopy and LEEP procedures on me and I was very confident that I wasin good hands. She is very quick and does not waste your time. I would not recommend her to someone that needs extra hand holding or emotional support from their doctor.
