I had difficulty connecting. Within the first five minutes she admitted she didn't know why I was referred to her due to my history and that she was hesitant to do any surgery. I was impressed that she spent the time and researched a procedure. I think because of her thoughts related to my history, she pushed more towards a procedure versus working with me to make the best decision for my health.

July 4, 2020 8:13 AM

I feel that when I was called with results that I frustrated her with questions related to the results. I understand that she did not have all the answers and I needed to do another consultation. I looked at my results in the portal and do not recall her telling me the entirety of results. I've been struggling with moving forward with my care with this provider. She is uncomfortable and I have become uncomfortable as well.

she is such a GREAT OBYGN

February 5, 2020 7:12 AM

Visit was short and impersonal.

February 4, 2020 11:04 AM

searles is the best hirer more like her

February 4, 2020 11:04 AM

definite referral to friends & family based on dr searles. this survey was too long for busy working people & needs to be shorten of u want more people to take time with survey.

January 29, 2020 8:39 AM

I waited 35 minutes to be seen. The provider spent an overall 5 minutes with me and was very short. The nurse practitioner under this provider seems very uncompassionate and did not explain procedures before doing them (I had to ask). I called the NP about pains I was feeling and was told she would give me a call from a nurse and I never received a call back.

January 29, 2020 8:39 AM

My overall experience with the providers at this office has been unpleasant. They do not seem to care about their patients and tend to rush you. The receptionists however, are always friendly and helpful.

January 27, 2020 12:14 PM

The "phone" service is awful! I must drive into the clinic to get anything corrected! No mgr. is every available!

January 23, 2020 11:36 PM

I would like to not feel rushed and like a statistic during my visits

Dr Searle was not very empathetic

May 18, 2019 7:00 PM

I felt rushed because She was late and I won't visit her again.

April 28, 2019 7:00 PM

A very considerate doctor!

March 19, 2019 7:00 PM

It was my first visit with Dr. Searles after my gynecologist retired and because the wrong schedule by the intake department. Dr. Searles did space in her schedule to accommodate my visit. She was great.

March 7, 2019 6:00 PM
