The office staff is rude, insensitive, & irresponsible and canât be trusted with my life or the life of my baby. I had heard so many good reviews about Dr. Graham I decided to schedule an appointment when my husband and I decided to start trying for a baby. I called to schedule a preconception appt. The receptionist seemed clueless. I guess not a lot of people do that? It was scheduled 3 months out (seems typical for a new patient). My husband and I conceived first try & called to change my appt. They kept my original date as I would be 9wks. At my appt I was taken back for an ultrasound and told by the tech my baby died a few weeks earlier. Then I got to see Dr. Graham. She has a great personality and explains things well. I was then sent to a tech to have my blood drawn for blood type as I wasnât sure what it was. If it was negative I was told Iâd need a shot to prevent future complications. I had never received a call with the results so I assumed it was positive. A year later I saw a fertility specialist as I had been trying to get pregnant again with no success. They requested records from Dr. Grahamâs office and I learned from them that my blood type test was never completed by the lab. Why couldnât they call me? I could have redone the test? I waited in agony for the results to come back from the fertility dr and luckily my blood type is positive. I called Dr. Grahamâs office to find out what happened to my lab work & they said it had been sent to the lab in the wrong tube & the lab wouldnât test it. The nurse I spoke with said it didnât matter anyway as I needed the shot within 72 hours. Then she said it didnât matter as I had a missed miscarriage not a regular miscarriage. If it didnât matter why did Dr. Graham have me do the test in the first place? Why did she tell me I would need a shot if I was negative? I felt like she was just making up excuses. There is no excuse for a mistake like that. Dr. Graham might be a decent doctor, but I would never recommend anyone to her office because of mistakes like this. Mistakes like this can cost lives.
Dr. Graham is amazing. She just delivered my first baby and if I were to for some reason move away before having more children, i would move back just to have her as my doctor. She made me feel at ease the entire time and I appreciate the number of ultrasounds that I had. Her staff is amazing and very helpful at returning calls and answering questions promptly. She truly loves what she does and I recommend her to anyone that asks for an OB/GYN. My labor did not go as I had hoped and just before pushing I was a bit of a mess. When she walked in the room my entire demeanor changed. She was absolutely incredible during my delivery, I really felt like she was there just for me, totally focused on me and my baby. She's the best!
I've called three times over the course of my being a patient. Once was for clarification of breast ultrasound results, twice was request for prescriptions. I was never got a response. She seems to be a great doctor, but her practice is too large and her office is too busy to take care of all of her patients. I'm not a new mother, I'm not even pregnant, so I'm not calling with a million silly questions. I've called with legitimate things and was never responded to. Regretfully, I've decided to find a new doctor.
My OBGYN of many years closed her practice and left town and I had no idea. I was in search of a new OBGYN and visited Dr. Graham. It took about a month to get in. I explained to her my history and the syptoms I was having and told her between her and my other physicians I need one of them to help me figure out what is going on. I ended up taking a hormonal saliva test but not until 6 weeks later after calling the office twice and then being told I have to call and pay for it first and given the company's information. I did not get upset until I got the results and was denied making a follow up appointment about my test results. I was told the nurse would call me and it's probably soemthing that could be handled over the phone. I expressed my extreme frustrations and need to find out what I can do or need to do to have a better well being. I have not heard back. Dr.'s are supposed to be there for you in your time of need and I needed her to help and with the incompetency of the staff and then the disregard of my need to see her has forced me to find another Dr. I only had one experience and can't imagine if I continued my care there what else I might experience.
