Was a patient for over 13 yrs - would have said "Love, Love, Love" in the past, but NO MORE! Learned 2 months ago she closed the practice and didn't inform all of her patients (last saw her 11/2015 and practiceclosed 3/2016). No excuse for not notifying patients! So now, where are all of my medical records from all of those years??? I have requested copies of my medical records 2 times now - the hospital Dr. Woolridge was associated with tracked her down after I called them and she gave them a PO Box for the medical record request. Have to presume this is not an ethical process for a doctor...

Being a new patient I did not expect to be seen quickly. It was helpful filling out the numerous medical history forms ahead of time, available through ZocDoc. Dr. Vanessa Woolridge is personable as well as professional. Together we discussedmy gynecological concerns and she explained her diagnosis and conclusions very clearly, using diagrams on the walls of the room to help me understand my problems and the proposed solutions.
