I felt very heard and listened to. She went through all the options and we came up with a solution.

Dr. Stehly thoroughly explained everything she was doing and was going to do. She also explained the anatomy and how things worked. It was very eye opening to hear it and also made me feel more in tune with my care and over all health. She genuinely cares about her patients and you can tell that 100%!! I highly recommend her to all. Especially to women who are scared about new lady procedures or checkups. She definitely makes you feel at ease and comforted.

Felt alittle rushed. She had a solution from looking at nurses notes. Didn't ask me what the problem was I was having. Just came in with a solution. Nice to have a solution but I would have liked to discuss it with her. Maybe there was another option
