My first visit was yesterday. The Environment was comfortable. The staff were friendly. The entire visit, wait and all, was less than an hour.
First appointment and Dr. Mccants was so very down to earth and personable yet extremely professional, thorough, and knowledgeable. Ive never went to a doctor which such great bed side manner. So glad I found her and would DEFINITELY recommend :)
Waited 40 mins before even getting called back, waited another 20 mins before seeing the doctor... Dr. McCants was good though, sweet, knowledgeable, gave me the prescriptions that I asked for no problem.
Excellent physician. Highly recommend

I love how comfortable dr.mc cants made me feel as well as her staff very friendly in would highly recommend people
Dr. McCants is definitely the best OBGYN I've seen. Been to 3 different docs in the last 3 years, and was frustrated by all of them. Waited less than 10 minutes to be shown to an exam room, and then maybe 10 more for the Dr. after the nurse left. NEVER been seen that quickly for any appt. Out in 30 minutes with a new birth control prescription consultation and felt heard, understood and reassured
Great bedside manner!! The right Dr was chosen!! The online info is greatly appreciated!!!
I LOVED her. She was very professional, yet laid back and funny. Made my visit very comfortable and gave some helpful information on different options for birth control.
she needs to not make appointments so close together
I really enjoyed my visit. The staff was very friendly even when I forgot to log my medical history. They were very helpful. I loved Dr. McCants' bedside manner. She answered all of my questions and made me feel comfortable.
Dr. McCants has been my doc for the past 5 years. She was my doc during my pregnancy and delivered my first baby and did a fantastic job! She put me at ease and said all the right things, love her!
Dr. McCants is very knowledgable about my issue and comforting by ensuring me that she has performed this surgery numerous times and that I will be okay. I felt a sense of comfort and peace when talking to her about my issue.
I cannot say enough positive things about Dr. McCants. It is rare to find a doctor who truly cares and actually listens! Not only is her bedside manner fantastic, but she is an excellent doctor. She knew research off the top of her head re. my situation and certain medicines I was on at the time. I would recommend her to anyone and have already referred her to at least 3 friends.
Absolutely Love Her!
She's the sweetest, most attentive doctor I have. I would recommend her to all of my girlfriends and female family members.
Awesome manners. Great staff. Teaching was very understandable.
Dr. McCants has a excellent bedside manner. She is patient and listens to what you have to say. She is very knowledgeable and explains options/treatments very well.

She is so easy going and she makes you feel comfortable talking with her. She's so funny too.
This was my second time coming to Dr. McCants, but she was just as pleasent, helpful, and knowledgeable as the first time around. I appreciate the time she puts in!
I love Dr. McCants, the entire office staff, and her nurse--they are great. We had to wait a while yesterday because of an emergency, but everyone was incredibly courteous and respectful of us; Dr. McCants had had a long day, but made sure that she made our visit worth the wait--she stayed and talked and answered questions patiently, enthusiastically, and with a smile on her face. So glad I've found this practice- they are great!
She is an excellent doctor. She is very informative and makes you feel really comfortable.
Dr. McCants is the most amazing doctor! She listens to all of my concerns and addresses them directly. She is very honest, full of compassion for her patients and practices with great humility! I would most certainly recommend her to others! Oh and her nurse is fabulous as well! She always has a huge smile on her face and greets everyone that comes in. You can certainly tell that they both really love what they do!
It was a great and fast as usual!!
I love Dr. McCants she is very helpful and makes the appointment go by as smooth as possible.
This was my first visit to Dr. McCants. She was very clear in her explanations and also compassionate in answering questions and understanding what I was going through medically, but also emotionally. She was very professional and made me feel comfortable from the very beginning. I will absolutely be going back to her in the future!
I love Shannon. She makes visits with her a relaxing as possible. She has excellent bedside manner and remembers each patient, even if it has been a while since she has seen them. I highly recommend her! She is WONDERFUL!
Dr. McCants is always friendly and efficient. I came in with a very painful condition and she was sympathetic as she listened and examined me. She scheduled surgery for me very quickly on a day she isn't normally in surgery. I am so glad she is my doctor!
I usually have to wait about 30 minutes when I come for an appointment, but I can always see the reason - Dr. McCants never makes the appointment feel rushed and will genuinely listen to and address any and all concerns. It's so refreshing to meet a doctor like her. I'll be trying for my first baby within the next year and will most definitely be putting it all in her capable hands!
Dr. McCants listened to ALL of my MANY concerns and visited with me for an hour about a problem with my prolactin levels. She made me feel so comfortable and answered all of my questions and gave me great advice. I highly reccomend Dr. McCants!

She was great! Very helpful and answered all my questions!
Dr. McCants makes one feel very comfortable.
Dr McCants was the on call OB GYN when I went into labor with my second son, and I was trying for a VBAC. I was very nervous that she wouldn't be supportive of my VBAC and would encourage me to have a C-section, especially since my progress was kind of slow. But I had no reason for concern. Dr McCants knew exactly what interventions to recommend to help speed up my labor just enough to get me the VBAC I so desperately wanted. I've had two office appointments following my delievery with Dr McCants and just really love her laid back, friendly personality.She really is a wonderful doctor and I highly recommend her! I wish she had been my OB throughout my pregnancy too because I really can't say the same for the doctor in the practice I saw during that time.
I absolutely love her. She has helped me through many an awkward situation. Making me feel completely normal, and reassuring me it wasn't me. Our bodies do what they want, and she knows that better than any other OBGYN I've ever seen.
This was my first time with Dr. McCants she was very professional and nice and very helpful with all my questions. She made me feel very comfortable and her nurse was very sweet and they both helped me out with anything that I needed. I very much recommend her for anybody looking for a new OBGYN! She was definitely my best experience and will continue to go there for any check ups or future pregnancies.
Dr. McCants was informative and professional. She was also very friendly and easy to talk to. I enjoyed my visit. I was there less than an hour and the staff was just as friendly as Dr. McCants.
I was so pleased with Dr. McCants today since Dr. Joseph retired and Dr. Matthews is no longer with the practice and I needed to be established with a new doctor. Dr. McCants was warm, friendly, very attentive, and I just loved her instantly. She was sensitive to the fact that I missed my former ob/gyn and assured me that she had no plans on retiring anytime soon. She was wonderful and I look forward attending any future visits with her. -R.W.
Very personable, very accomodating. She takes the time to make certain her patients are comfortable & well-informed. Always very friendly. I love Dr. McCants as my gyno!
Great doctor! Makes you feel very comfortable. & doesn't make you feel like just a number but a person! I would highly recommend others to her.
Dr. McCants was very friendly and personable. I liked her bed-side manner as much as I liked Dr. Norwood's. I am thrilled she is my new doctor!
I've been seeing Dr McCants for about 3 years now and she has been the best doctor that I have ever visited. So many doctors now are ready to push you out of the office and not really help you. She is the best, she takes her time to listen and help you the best that way that she can. I love her, best doctor I've ever had!!
Outstanding! She took care of me with the birth of my first child and is a joy to visit. I have recommended her to all of my friends.
It was very comfortable, she was very friendly and answered all my questions.

Dr McCants is an amazing Dr. She is very friendly and answered all of my questions. She never leaves me walking out of the office wondering about anything and her staff and nurses are just as caring. I love this office and would recommend her to any and everyone!
She's pretty great!
Dr. McCants is the perfect dr for me. I'm so glad I found her and can't say enough about how wonderful she is. She is not judge mental, she listens and respects my choices, and she doesn't make me feel like an idiot for anything I might ask or need.
McCants is great! She always takes extra time to talk with me and very honest about everything going on! I also never have to wait more than 10 minutes to be called back to see her....
She is a wonderful person inside and out. I would recommend her to anyone.
She was great!!! I loved her. The desk clerk had no personality.
I loved my visit! The staff was very professional and personable. Dr. McCants showed interest in my history and made absolutely sure that no abnormal symptoms were missed. My wait was about 25 minutes, but the quality of service and importance showed to the patient makes the wait worth it.
She is always amazing. I feel like we've been friends a long time. I'd give her 10 stars. Attentive, smart, caring. And puts me at ease immediately.
Phenomenal! I highly recommend her. I consistently look forward to and enjoy my numerous prenatal visits.
She's always very thorough and takes the time to listen. Love her ?
I HIGHLY recommend Dr. McCants. She has such a laid back demeanor and a wonderful bedside presence. She is very professional and I NEVER have to wait long to see her. I started seeing Dr. McCants at the beginning of my 2nd pregnancy. I am now 4 weeks out from delivery and I wish that she had been my Dr for my first child as well. I highly recommend you make an appointment to see her!! I have already referred several friends and family members to her.
Dr. McCants is great! She listens to any questions or concerns and never makes you feel rushed or like your just another patient. It may sound odd, but it's almost like visiting a girlfriend as opposed to the typical awfulness associated with typical OB/GYN appointments.
She is really nice and makes sure to address all your needs! Definately would recommend her!
Dr. McCants is the best doctor I have ever been to, all specialties included. She is incredibly friendly and caring: at the beginning of every appointment, she asks about how life is going and how things are in general. She is genuinely interested in her patients as people, which does wonders for putting someone at ease. She is also incredibly knowledgable, but is also able to discuss subjects in a manner easy for anyone to understand. I would recommend her to everyone!
Spectacular. Probably the best doctor I've ever gone to. I have some issues which can make treatment awkward but she worked around them wonderfully without even making me feel like I was causing problems.
I absolutely love not only Dr. McCants but her nurse and office personal. They treat you like you are their only patient and they take the time to answer any questions or concerns. I highly recommend Dr. McCants.

Dr. McCants is amazing! She is very calm, great listener and incredibly laid back. She also has 3 small children of her own, so she is very relatable and down to earth. She doesn't give you so much information that you are on overload... and she is super patient during every appointment. She never acts like she is in a rush to get you out the door. I have already referred 3 of my friends to her and they all love her too. I am in the middle of my 2nd pregnancy right now and plan for Dr. McCants to be my doctor from here on out! I feel lucky to have found her.
Love her! She explains everything so clearly and is open and honest with us on everything.
FYI, at the time of this review, I haven't delivered my baby yet. Dr. McCants is fantastic. My prenatal visits have been professional, yet fun and enlightening. Dr. McCants makes you feel like a friend in a relaxed environment. You won't feel rushed or devalued in any way. She has three kids of her own - her third is only a few months old - so she understands what her patients are going through from both a clinical and personal perspective. Can't say enough! Love her! Her staff is fantastic too - Erin is a sweetheart as well as the sonographer and additional nursing staff.
I really like Dr. McCants. She was very personable and explained everything she was doing during my procedure. She also explained what we would do next if needed. I am happy to have found such a great new gynecologist!

I always hate going to see the OB-GYN, and especially in a new city with a new doctor but she was so awesome. She didn't make things awkward and had me out of there in no time. Takes an interest in who you are, but not overly done. She was great!
Very professional and personable.
The front desk told me she might be running late because she had to deliver a baby. However, I had to wait less than 10 minutes and was still done with the appointment within 45 minutes of arriving.
