I don’t think I can say (before today) that my Pap smear appointment was OK. I was amazed how professional and delicate Dr Diaz was! I’m never gonna let her go LOL, coming back forever...

I was nervous going in for the first time. However, the office staff and doctor were OUTSTANDING, professional and welcoming!! Highly recommend.
I thought my visit was positive and encouraging. We discussed my test results and medications and any concerns I have. Dr. Chen is very thorough and caring, and explains everything to me, which I appreciate very much. She's a great listener, and a great doctor!
Wonderful first time experience! I only had to wait about 5 minutes until taken back for my appointment... a huge improvement from other offices I've visited! I mostly met with a member of Dr. Louis-Jacques staff who is a student and performed all my annual exams. She was incredibly friendly and willing to answer any and all questions I had without ever feeling rushed or uncomfortable. I will be back for my next appointment.
Good visit. She was late because she recalled to the labor and delivery dept at the hospital nearby
Overall great experience, they were only delayed because one nurse was out. I look forward to my next visit.
Dr Lipeles is such a friendly and kind hearted doctor. From our first impression he was energetic and caring. He listened to all of our concerns with a patient ear and he was so knowledgable when he was answering all our questions. We appreciate his open mindedness to our ways of thinking and cannot wait to build a strong patient doctor relationship.
The office was surprisingly clean, updated, and nice; I found parking on a side street right nearby. The women behind the counter were very helpful in getting me the paperwork, and getting me started. The nurse that took my weight, history, and checked me in (she also took my blood later) was extremely nice and friendly. I only wish Dr. Martinson had been half as friendly. I'm extremely nervous during annual exams and PAPs because I've never been able to get comfortable with a doctor (constantly moving) and they're very painful for me. Dr. Martinson asked standard questions, talked about my history/method of contraceptives, and we started the exam. She did use a smaller speculum when I told her that the standard one hurt too much, but she wasn't nice or patient about it. She was very brusque and more interested in getting the exam over with than making sure I was comfortable. I guess she did her job, and that's all I can ask her to do. But she was also very curt with me about getting my prescription renewed (it was, admittedly, my fault I forgot the package) and warned me to call the nurses with it ASAP because she wasn't going to be in the office for more than another hour or two. She was about 30-40 minutes late to my appointment (I was sitting in the un-airconditioned exam room in those flimsy paper things waiting.... and waiting), too. So I guess really make sure you're on time for your appointment! The nurses and atmosphere alone are worth going here, but Dr. Martinson didn't really seem to care about me as a patient. She just wanted to get in and get out. BE WARNED. This office also changed my appointment without calling me to confirm it or ask! I booked my appointment through ZocDoc and the next morning I had an email saying that my appointment time had been changed. The people at ZocDoc were very nice about it, but it wasn't their fault. The nurse (Vanessa) also made my follow-up appointment without first asking what date/time worked for me. I have a really flexible schedule so it didn't matter either time. Just be wary of that!
In general my appointment was great! But it's 2h wait and they are not responding on their calls, can't get my lab results, which is super frustrating!!!
Very corteous & made me feel at ease. Seemed to really care about my health.
