Obstetrical Appointment (routine)

I love the doctors and the staff but it's not ok that we are unable to not have anyone with us. COVID-19 practices can still remain safe if masks are worn at all times still. With the vaccines coming out, people are supposedly even safer. This time should not be spent alone, and there are ways to remain CDC safe but also give patients a genuine and positive experience by allowing support individuals to attend appointments.

Dr. Cannon is so upbeat, reassuring and just amazing.

Gynecological Problem Visit

When I called to schedule an appointment, no one stated the cost of my visit and my insurance was on file. When visiting Dr. Cannon, I stated a few concerns during my visit to the nurse and Dr. Cannon. I mentioned a recurring issue and she advised the symptoms I was experiencing was due to my partner but didnt address my request for a prescription if the issue resurfaced. After leaving the room to continue to get blood drawn, they did not tell me what they were testing me for. I had to request the nurse to write down what they were testing and the nurse seemed agitated with my request. The lab tech was more helpful than the nurse. I noticed the other concerns I addressed with Dr. Cannon were not covered in testing. When I followed up regarding my other concerns, they mentioned they wanted to wait for the results to return. How can you wait for the results to return if it wasn't covered in testing? This is my 2nd time visiting this facility and for the SECOND time I felt like another number and it seemed like my concerns and questions were burdensome when speaking with Dr. Cannons nurse. With this last experience, I am considering switching my OBGYN.

Post-Partum Appointment

I really feel like Dr. Cannon truly has my best interest in mind. She is straight forward and has a great sense of humor.
