Dr. Shakerin is one of the best physicians in town. She always provides compasionate care by listening and explaining my body and any current life issues in my life. It is hard to find a physician visit where the physician discusses ME! By listening and talking she can make a more through evaluation of my current health and my preventative health needs. I feel when I leave the office we did not miss any concerning health issues. I value her opinions and medical decisions on my health.

Took the time to talk to me.

Dr. Shakerin does a fantastic job of outlining choices and making sure my concerns are addressed.
Dr. Shakarin presented and discussed results from recent Dexascan.
My husband and I were treated with respect and fully listened to. Annie isn''t the only provider I have seen throughout my OB care and I could tell that she took the time to look over some of the notes to understand what was going on before coming in to meet with us.

Dr Martinie made me feel at ease. Very informative. Very nice. I really enjoyed her
Doctor took the time to talk to me about my concerns.

Dr. Palmer was great! So down to earth and easy to talk to!
The visit was efficient, I was able to schedule the appointment at a time and location that were convenient for me, and I liked the providers I met with.
MA was a bit curt. Receptionist was welcoming.
After I left my appointment I realized that we had not talked about if I should still follow my restrictions from the surgery. I don't think that I needed to come in just to look at my little incisions. If there had been problems I would of called.
Bethany was very informative, took time to actively listen and gave good recommendations regarding supplements to take, etc.
It was easy to address all my concerns.
The doctor listened to what said. She understood that I knew my body and I knew something was wrong. She was more than willing to help me. She knew exactly how to help me, and she was even able to offer me some options for treatment. I had previously been to two other doctors, who not only would not listen when I said I knew something was wrong, but the other doctors told me I was old and fat and that's what my issues were from....
I think Dr. Sarkinen is amazing!! She answers all my questions and spends the time with me that I need.
All staff members were friendly and knowledgeable.
Even though it was a short appointment I did not feel rushed and I felt like all my questions were answered with thoughtful considerate answers

I truly appreciate Dr Martinie, she was referred to me by a friend/coworker. I'm grateful to have begun to see her. She takes the time to really listen, making your concerns and questions valuable and worth being listened to. Dr Martinie makes the time to answer questions thoroughly and shows care, I don't feel rushed through an appointment with her. I always leave her appointments well informed and at ease of what's to come next. She puts confidence in her fellow Dr's and midwifes that when it's time for baby to be delivered that they will care for you just as she would. I first saw her after miscarrying our first baby and she gave me encouragement that my body knows what to do to re-set itself and to be at ease. With the birth coming of our baby now she gives assurance and walks with us each step. Thank you Dr Martinie.
I felt like the doctor was in a hurry and didn't have time to listen. And perhaps there were patients with bigger issues than mine. I get it.
Dr. Manneh is amazing - I always love my experience at Oakdale & with her! She is very knowledgeable & always ensures the best care!
[Highly satisfied?] Yes I was. Dr. Shakerin is so awesome!!
The surgery went great. Dr. Frank was great. I felt that the post op nurses/staff were impatient with my recovery. I felt rushed to get out of the hospital.
Dr. Anna Meyer is amazing. She thoughtfully answers any questions or concerns you have and makes you feel heard and valued. She is truly a great doctor and I've had a good experience every time I've seen or talked to her.
Amber, the nurse that checked me in was friendly and courteous while asking me questions and taking my blood pressure. Dr. Martinie was thorough in discussing my history, making recommendations and completing the exam portion.

I love Oakdale- they are professional and personal!
I never felt rushed and felt like she was listening.
All of the customer service staff were extremely helpful as well as my provider. I was new to the office and OBGYN in general, so I was a little nervous going in, but everyone made me feel so comfortable.
Dr. Shakerin was very thorough and explained things very clearly.
Arrived a bit early and was taken to the exam room early. Very shortly thereafter Dr. Palmer came in to see me. His history-taking and subsequent exam were thorough, efficient, and complete. I actually walked out of the exam room 5 minutes after my scheduled appointment time! Much appreciated so that I could get back to work!
They took me on time and Dr. Shakerin was wonderful. She's never in a hurry and always ready to answer any and all questions.
It was what I expected from an ob-gyn appointment for questions about fertility MD seemed knowledgeable and friendly.
Dr. Mcevoy provides great care. I choose to travel 20 miles to this location just to be treated her versus going to the clinic less than a mile down the road.
Everyone was so friendly and efficient
Megan is always easy going and made me feel comfortable throughout all my appointments! On the post partum appt she showed interest in my new life and made sure I was all healed.
Dr. Shakerin is knowledgeable and takes time to listen.
I've been having ongoing issues and my primary provider recommended a procedure and referred me here. She listened to my concerns and asked a lot of questions. She didn't agree with my primary provider's plan and explained why. She did recommend a couple of other options. We started one plan, which is the simplest and most cost effective (per my preference). If it doesn't work, we have a back up plan. I feel much better about my situation now.
Appointment was on time, customer services was good. Can't think of anything that could have gone better.
Good bedside manner. She was able to answer all of my questions or concerns. I never felt rushed.
I love Dr. McEvoy and she always listens to me and my concerns.
I felt Dr. Martinie took the time I expect during an office visit.

Everyone was very nice and I felt like they spent time with me and I mattered as a patient.

I was seen in a timely manner. The doctors and nurses were nice and friendly. Dr. Lafond answered all my questions and made sure I understood everything we talked about.
Little or no wait time. Friendly staff. Knowledgeable doctor who listened and made me feel like she cared about my needs.
Taryn is takes her time to listen and understands my concerns/needs. She goes above to make sure her clients receive the best care.
Dr. Manneh is one of the most caring, thorough, attentive providers I've have the privilege of working with. Even though it was an easy office visit to change my RX, she made me feel very heard and confident in her recommendation. It's always a pleasure to see Dr. Manneh!
Explained my procedure very well that I could understand and explained in detail what would take place from before and after surgery.
Dr. Manneh ALWAYS goes above and beyond. I have seen her for five years and she has continually listened to any concerns I have about fertility and my health.
I have never not had a good experience at Oakdale. All employees are very professional and very nice. It's a great feeling to know that they care and are willing to listen.
Very nice staff. Checking to NA to MD.
[Highly satisfied] Cuz Annie is as awesome as she was with my first pregnancy.
I was seen in a timely manner, all of my questions and concerns were addressed. Kelly Ihry was friendly and reassuring as usual.
While I did get to be seen by Dr. Ihry, the doctor I preferred (Dr. Meyer) was unavailable. I also felt like she was not used to handling a patient with disabilities and came off as condescending during my visit (which I'm sure was not her intention). The test results on the portal were vague and did not thoroughly explain why they were negative and or why I still needed clotrimazole. Lastly, I could not accurately apply the cream using the 1 applicator that was provided with it due to my disability, therefore I can only use the cream topically.I also had to sign up for AthenaHealth to receive updates, and it's portal has been quite slow for me. However, she did answer most of my questions and did make an attempt to give a treatment option, just not the right method.
Jennifer is very accommodating to every need I had and actually listen to my issues. She does the best she can to make sure we are healthy and happy!
All my questions were addressed
Pleasant office setting, friendly staff.
Kelly is so great! She actually cares about her patients. She asks questions and she listens to the answers.
I always feel heard, supported and that all my questions are answered. Dr. McEvoy always makes me feel comfortable and confident in my pregnancy.
Dr. Harris is so great. She explains everything she's doing, why and what to expect afterward. She answers all of my questions and doesn't make me feel like she's rushing to get to the next patient.
Charet listened to all of my concerns and provided a good plan for helping me to get better. She has 20 years of experience in dealing with women with pelvic floor dysfunction. I will have a follow-up appointment with her in the office in person in a week or two.
I love the staff at Oakdale OBGYN!
I loved Dr. Manneh! She was super informative and caring.

She answers all my questions and is always so nice and patient.
Charet has helped me so much. I've noticed improvement even in just two sessions.
Got me in quickly, provider and nurse very nice.
Dr. Zhang was clear and concise in her communication about what I was referred to her for. When I left she gave me several brochures and in reading them she had informed me of some of the information during the visit. I felt understood when I answered her questions. The other staff was polite and I felt respected.
Pleasant environment, very short wait... Friendly staff.
Dr. Manneh has an excellent bedside manner.

Doctor Frank had such a good bedside manner and made sure to ask about how I was doing prior to the procedure. She answered all my questions and told me every step she took along the way so that I felt comfortable.
Kim is so knowledgeable, helps you with where you are at, and is so supportive. I finally found someone who understands my struggles. An A+ provider!
Friendly doctor. Took her time answering my questions. Made me feel relaxed.
Charet is very good at explaining everything. She doesn't just tell you what to do - she includes the why.
The way Sarah presented herself regarding my personal situation regarding my pregnancy left me feeling very uneasy. She shared with me how high risk I am for having a still birth because of my BMI. I have had a really healthy pregnancy and yes, I appreciate knowing all the possibilities that are good and bad... she presented this situation very insensitive.
I was extremely satisfied with Dr. Shakerin. The only negative was that I had to wait 30 minutes to get called in to my appointment.
Kim was patient, caring, truly interested in my needs and how I can be successful on this journey.
Dr. McEvoy is very personable and has a good bedside manner, making it very easy to talk to her about everything. This isn't always the case with doctors. She really listens to her patients and you know she really cares about your health. Even when the news may not be the news you want to hear, you really respect her advice and opinion.
I would say 5 Highly Satisfied but was disappointed to learn they closed the facility on 81 in Crystal. So the closest location now is Maple Grove. But I will follow Dr Shannon Harris wherever she goes. She is great at her job. I feel very comfortable with her. She is patient, always listens, is able to answer all of my questions and concerns, I never feel rushed.
All my questions were answered, didn't feel rushed. Appointment started on time.
Sarah made me feel good about myself and didn't make me worry about anything. She answered my questions and made me feel safe.
Quick to be seen, very kind midwife and ultrasound technician, comfortable atmosphere.
DR Martini was very helpful and explained everything and took her time with me
Quick check in and quick to see doctor
Dr. McEvoy is genuinely interested in me as a person, listens and is very personable. I feel very comfortable with her.
on time appointment, didn't feel rushed, Bethany is so personable and takes the time to get to know you. She is so knowledgeable and truly cares.
The process was clear- they got me in right away, and Dr. Frank was helpful, professional and kind.
I love everything about the care I receive at Oakdale! All the staff is super friendly & eager to help/answer any questions I have. Bri is amazing! So kind & attentive. Every time I visit I feel like they remember me & are up to date on what's going on with me, as well as always wanting to know anything new. I always leaving feeling so glad I stumbled upon Oakdale randomly.
Our provider, Dr. McEvoy provided top level care and OBGYN expertise to my entire pregnancy from 12 weeks to postpartum. She enabled me and my family to make the most informed decisions in my pregnancy, labor and post-partum care resulting in a healthy pregnancy and baby girl!
Front desk staff was lovely, Dr. Shakerin listened to my experiences and spent time hearing my problems and coming up with solutions.
My problem was listened to, evaluated, and test was run. I did have an infection, which a treatment plan was given and followed.
My Dr. made me feel very comfortable and safe. She welcomed my questions and was very relational.
The staff was very friendly and professional.
She listened to me and was so friendly.
Dr Martini takes the time that is needed to feel you are heard and well taken care of.
Thorough, easy to talk to, everything was explained well.
Absolutely love Dr. McEvoy! If I could have her as my doctor for everything I would. She is caring, compassionate, smart, and truly rakes a patient first approach! I fully trust her decisions, diagnosing, and recommendations! Even my husband thought highly of her when he encountered her during a D&C procedure.
Kelly made me feel comfortable and answered all the questions and concerns I had. I didn't have to wait long before I was called in.
Dr. Harris went the extra step to follow her instincts and had me get an extra ultrasound- which found some fluid in the baby that we wouldn't have seen. Also, while I was processing the hard information she had the nurses come into the room to draw blood instead of sending me to the blood drawing section of the office.
Cheerful staff, nice facility.
As the mom, I just want to see my daughter out of pain and back to functioning in school and with extracurriculars (riding horse). I know a step by step approach is important--it just feels so slow.
