This visit was routine prenatal care. The experience was overall positive.

I was the first patient at 8am and the Nurse Practioner was 20 minutes late. I had the same issue with her last year but thought it was a fluke. I am expected to be at work on time. I would hope her supervisor has the same expectations of her.

The receptionists and Brooke Taylor NP were some of the nicest, most helpful people I've ever met in the medical world. I felt totally comfortable throughout the entire process and recommended St Vincent's women's clinic to a friend as result of this experience.

Have been looking for a professional for gynecology and have tried several. Brooke was amazing.

I had a medical condition that was not fully explained I was simply told that if another test came back positive in a year we would address the issue then. I understood that the illness is something common among both male and female adults but even though I tried to ask several clarifying questions I don't feel like they were addressed properly. In the end I simply went home and googled the condition to learn more about it.

I've always had a great experience at Providence Women's Health Center, and Brooke Taylor has always been wonderful.

Brooke helped me answer all of my questions and saved me time - I was able to cancel a follow up appointment because she was able to address all of my needs in the first appointment.

This was my first appointment with Brooke; I usually see Dr. [...]. I was impressed that she knew about my medical history before she came in the room to see me and that she asked about conditions I currently have. Very personable and knowledgeable.

Wait time glitch of over 45 minutes.

She was very easy to talk to.

When I schedule my annual appointment with my Gyn, Dr. [...], I was told her schedule was full and I was pushed off on to seeing a NP. At my appointment, I checked in on time, was supposed to be 1st appointment of the morning. I was taken back to the exam room, after vitals checked & med list verified I was left in the cold exam room wearing only a gown over 35 minutes before the provider arrived. The provider told me the MA forgot to notify her I was roomed & ready.(this is no acceptable) The provider's exam & discussion all totaled 7 minutes, which is not satisfactory for any kind of office exam. The provider's responses to my concerns about my hormone levels associated with fatigue and osteoporosis left me feeling she was uninterested-she offered no concern or interjection. Thankfully, my PCP recently noticed in my records that my Gyn provider has never checked my hormone levels, so this has already been done. With Dr. [...] cutting back her schedule, and the experience I recently had with this NP, I'm not confident I will be returning to this clinic. I've always been very happy and very well cared for by Dr. [...].

Brook has an excellent bedside manner and is extremely competent.

Timely, thorough, pleasant.

[...] the MA was wonderful and so warm and friendly and I cannot say enough wonderful things about Brooke. Always a wonderful experience. I feel I receive excellent care.

I had a very good experience after finding the women's health center but that facility is just enormous. I would have appreciated a smaller office that had only one or two clinics in it.

Both the nurse and the med student shadowing Dr. Taylor were lovely. Both put effort into putting me at ease during a potentially stressful situation (a pelvic exam is never an easy or comfortable thing). Dr. Taylor, on the other hand, was condescending, did not listen to my questions, made no effort to control her facial expression as it flashed irritation when I did ask questions, and generally treated me like a nuisance. It was extremely off-putting and upsetting. I take my sexual health seriously, and to be treated as though I am wasting her time or don't know what I'm talking about (when in fact I have a good deal of education on this topic) was offensive and distressing. I can not even imagine the sorts of experiences she is providing to women who know less about their bodies and their medical needs. Under no circumstances will I see her again for any of my healthcare needs. More than half of her job is addressing patient needs and concerns. If she is either not equipped or interested in doing so, she should not be seeing patients.

She is a wonderful provider, I enjoy coming in for my visits with her. Very frank conversations and open dialog about my issues.

i feel I have a good rapport with Brooke. She listens and gives me good suggestions for my issues.

I found the provider to be kind, yet somewhat unprofessional. I did not feel like she took the time to understand my chart and my personal situation. Her response to one of my serious questions was not respectful- she laughed and answered, "well, yeah." She was nice, but a little too relaxed for my personal taste in medical professionals.

Brooke is great but waiting for almost an hour for my appt was extremely frustrating

nothing bad.

Always look forward to seeing Brooke. My daughter likes her, too.

Brooke was great - very attentive to my needs. I had a trip coming up and she worked me in for a proc so it didn't interfere. She was personable and seemed genuinely interested in getting to know me. As a new patient, it is always nice to walk away feeling comfortable with your provider and grateful for the care you received :)

Brooke was great at making me feel at ease during and after my exam. She's thorough and very easy to talk with.

NP did not have good "bedside" manner. She was abrupt and unprofessional with the medical questions/concerns that I had.

Brooke was amazing. she really listened and was quick to help get things moving to help me. I would highly recommend and definitely will continue to see her.

I didn't see the bad for my provider .My provider is respectful is kind and I love here .

Test results for my pap were sent via your portal but they're difficult to understand. I didn't get a phone nor have I received a letter yet [...] although it was noted in my file has having been requested [...]. Timing might need to be evaluated as to when test results are added to my file. Or more clear language that all is fine.

Brooke has always provided the best possible care. She goes above and beyond to make sure all bases are covered. She is prompt, personable and trustworthy. She by FAR has been my favorite physician I've ever encountered. You have a special person working for you there Providence.

I thought she was incredibly relaxed, maybe too much? Didn't have on a doctor's coat or anything, was wearing a sweatshirt, so didn't instill me with as much confidence on my first visit. However, skill set seemed great and I felt more comfortable after the first appointment.

I felt instant rapport w/ her & appreciated her understanding my marital situation without judgment. Excellent patient advocate. I was properly counselled for future safety.

This was my first time seeing Brooke and I really liked her. I would want to see her again.

Brooke Taylor has been seeing me for year and I just love her! It makes me forget I am having an annual when we got to visiting.

my car broke down in the parking lot and I had my two small children with me. The doctor insisted on accompanying me with another member of her staff, to assist me with my car. it was an incredibly kind and generous gesture!

the last appointment felt rushed

It'd be nice if the time I was told to arrive before my appointment was more reflective of the time I needed to be there. My letter said show up 30 minutes before the appointment when in actuality I spent 28 minutes doing nothing in the lobby because they didn't need me there that early.

she didn't know anything about me or read my medical records and didn't do the same test previous drs did the last two years

I saw Brook because my regular nurse practitioner is out on medical leave. I was disappointed and a little anxious at not being able to connect with my regular NP but was so pleasantly surprised with my visit with Brooke, she had good comments & suggestions for current care/meds and when I spoke w/her about another main health concern she really listened with acknowledgement she understood and also recommended another Rheumatologist. I was very pleased with her care and glad it turned out.

I didn't see my nurse practitioner until 4:15 and my appointment was at 3:30. Additionally the nurse came in right before I was to see the NP and told me to drink glucose to do a blood draw an hour later without asking if that worked with my schedule. It just felt like they were behind and something got lost in translation. That being said everyone as always was so helpful and kind. I love the service you provide.

provider was very impersonal and seemed disconnected from appt. walked in room without reviewing my medical record, did not even know that I had called after hour helpline two days prior and was still having symptoms. did not spend even 10 minutes in the room. when I tried to bring up the helpline call it was passed over as if I was talking to a wall. already had my avs printed prior to me coming in the room, showing whatever I was going to say in the appt was useless. quickly ran through need for pediatrician and classes (less than 2 minutes) and didn't take time to discuss options or importance of classes. would not see this provider again.
