    Always good experience with Dr. Hewitt - for past 26 years!

    I found out during this visit that I had a miscarriage. Dr. Hewitt was kind in the way she delivered the news. However, I wish she'd taken time to pause the visit and let me get dressed before moving on to next steps. I needed a moment to collect my thoughts and get dressed so I wasn't sitting half naked as she described options for inducing a miscarriage. I started to feel faint and couldn't process any of the questions or info appropriately. This is good trauma-informed practice and I hope she'll implement it with all patients receiving bad news.

    Dr Hewitt listens carefully, explains things thoroughly. She always makes me feel that what I say is important to her, that we are partners in determining my health care. Not all doctors do that.

    Dr. Hewitt gave me outstanding care. She listened to my concerns and questions. Dr. Hewitt gave me advice and encouragement on how to work on several issues and how to improve my overall health. She gave me plenty of time and was thoughtful and gave me her professional opinion in a truly caring way. Dr. Hewitt is a role model for other doctors and she should be commended for her outstanding service. I am truly thankful to have her for my doctor.

    I can't say enough wonderful things about Dr. Geri... she's thorough, caring, relaxed - (yet very efficient with her time), and always answers my questions completely.
