I got there early because I knew there would be forms to fill out (there certainly were!) but I was done by my appointment time, which was 10 a.m. I was not taken back to a room until about 10:30, and didn't see the doctor for a while after that. That being said, Dr. Stephen is awesome -- very knowledgeable and clear in her instructions.

I have been suffering from abdominal pain for years now and this is the first time I've really felt like a doctor listened to me and was willing to do what ever needed to be done to figure out the problem and hopefully resolve it. I feel very confident trusting my care to her.

I was so impressed by Dr. Stephens that I switch from my former GI specialist. I would suggest that the ladies who answer the telephone refrain from telling lost new patients that the office is at the corner of Connecticut and Veirs Mill because it is not. Lost patients should be told that the office is on the corner of Ferrara and Veirs Mill in a medical center cluster of buildings.

Dr. Stephen is great, has a good sense of humor, and gets to the point quickly. Her staff is nice and soft spoken, however unsympathetic. When told I physically could not walk to my wallet to obtain certain information, the staff only repeated that I get that information before my appointment could be finalized via phone.

I did not think she was very friendly. Also, was not helpful in answering my questions, and felt like her answers to my questions seemed obvious. Her bedside manner was okay, but seemed like I was just any other patient. I have a very intricate case and instead of taking the time to evaluate and get to know me and my history, she right away told me to see another doctor.

She had unpleasant news to give me about possible treatments, but she was very attentive to my needs in hearing this news. She spent a surprisingly large amount of time discussing matters with me. I was very appreciative of how well she absorbed my personal medical information and how she used it. I am optimistic about the treatment option we selected.
