The office is very confusing. There was 2 offices in one and no signage with the doctor's name on the window to indicate which window was the correct one to sign in, I get there and the ladies behind the deskcarried on a personal conversation for 5mins till I interrupted and asked if I was in the right and place and state my name, I wrote my name on the list and 40mins after my appointment was scheduled to begin I had noticed that women who came after me had been seen and left before me. At this point I'm annoyed. I go back to the desk and give my appointment time, the girl at the desk explains my name was accidently crossed out. another 20mins past and my name is finally called, I'm asked to fill out paperwork when I received notification that I wouldn't have to because I filled it out online and it was already sent to the physician. 5 mins past Yolande finally shows up and asks me why I'm here. I explain my symptoms but she really wasn't listening because she asked me the same questions I already answered. She had me undress, observed my issued and had no answers to any of my questions. It was apparent that she was behind/overbooked because she rushed through everything. It was here's some pills , go to the front and call us back. I'm supposed to book a follow up appointment, it will not be at this facility. Also letting someone know of copays beforehand is a good practice.

I don't recommend this doctor at all. Both experiences here have been not so great. The doctor herself is awkward and laughed at my questions, I genuinely needed answers to for clarification. Did not feel very comfortable throughout the appointment.

Dr. Hackney seems pretty busy, but is helpful and never questioned anything I told her the way that I have heard other doctors can. She was a little brusque at first, but I think that was just a function of herbeing busy, and me having more to discuss than she anticipated based in my indicated reason for coming in. The visit was quick, professional, and she was able to discuss my health concerns without making everything seem dire and out of control. Definitely recommend!

The front staff and nurses were lovely. But, I asked the doctor an honest question and after she answered, she chuckled as if it were funny I was asking her the question and I just wanted clarification. I also didn’t getchecked out how I expected to be. Overall, it was an okay visit.

I felt that Dr. Hackney was dismissive of my concerns and didn't spend very much time talking to me about my health. She seems to know the bear minimum for her job and has no interest in learning any more, not even for the sake of her patients.

If you're a virgin it is best that you see another OBGYN. She was not gentle at all, and did not use any lubricant. She was in the process of doing a Pap smear and had to stop because it wasvery painful. Afterwards, I bled for a couple of hours and still felt a lot of discomfort. I have had some experience with other gynecologists and they were all very gentle and understanding so it was not my first time.
