Horrible waste of time by
I have never in my life walked into such a rude, NON persona,l clinic feeling office before in my life. The first time I went they went over my medical history, which seemed like a waste of time as this could have been done along with something else, like the blood work or physical. My second appointment was for my lab work, it was a day after it had snowed, but at this point the roads were fine, and since there answering machine said nothing about them being closed nor did I receive a phone call I showed up for my appointment. Other patients of theirs had also shown up for their appointments, but no one was in the office, door was locked and the lights were off. Several of us were sitting in the parking lot waiting. My third appointment was to meet Dr. Reese and have my physical. I was there early for my appt. as I work in the medical field and I know how important it is to be on time. I waited and waited and waited, until finally there was a sign put on the window an hour after my appointment time that said Dr. Reese is running behind. I found this very unpersonalized, I understand the nature of their profession they will run late, but to be so cold about it bothers me. Once the nurse took me back into the exam room she slammed my chart down and asked me if I had an attitude today. I explained how all my appointments have gone and I found it unpersonalized and uncaring, so she told me if I didn't like it to go somewhere else. So that is what I did. Going to that office was a waste of time from day 1 with no regard for my time or feelings at all.
Dr. Reese was wonderful by

I seen Dr. Reese for all of my appts. She is an excellent doctor who really cares what you have to say. She always was very nice and has a bubbly personality, which was great to have in the delivery room. I have and will continue to keep recommending her to others.
not sure what to think/ switched Dr's in the same office by

Dr. Sharma, started out ok, but changed up on me after I started having problems that she didn't really treat the right way....so I changed to Dr. Wade and now I am in the process of getting to know what she is all about, so far she has only said one thing that I don't really like that pertains to my health. In the process of waiting for test results and then we will see. I read so much negativity on these blogs, kinda makes you wonder if any doctor is safe.

I have to say I am disappointed with this practice. I have been seeing D. Sharma for a couple years now. She was great and understanding at first. She took care of my first surgery. In the months to come the pain I originally went in for came back and was worse. I asked for another exploratory surgery to relieve the pains and was denied and was told to take meds that I have already been on and new it didn't work. Then another suggestion of a med called Lupron. I did my research of this med and I no it's not for me. I'm in a ton of pain ,now I have to go to another practice to have things taken care of. I don't think I would recommend this practice.
HALF ARE GOOD HALF I DONT RECOMMEND by
DR WADE AND THE MIDWIFE WERE NOT FOR ME ACTED LIKE THEY DIDNT CARE AND "IT WAS A DEAL WITH IT" THING. I AM A PATIENT OF DR SHARMA AND DIDNT APPRECIATE HER COMMENTS THROUGH MY PREG. BUT AFTERWARDS SHE WAS GREAT. I LOVE DR REESE SHE IS VERY UNDERSTANDING AND DOES NOT JUDGE YOU.
Wasn't impressed. by

Dr. Wade was not the best option for me. "Deal with it" is her motto. I felt she lacked in the area of developing a relationship with the patient. She treated me as if I were another # and didn't seem to care.
MOVED AWAY AND NOW I'M RETURNING! by
I have to say I disagree with the younger reviewer. I went to this practice when I was 20 and I had no problems with the Doctors or staff. They were very accommodating to me if I was going to be late, yes, they asked where I was but that was to find out if I would make it there within the 15 minute increment, if not they would reschedule me for another time. Karen Nguyen was my midwife and she was great. Even though I only saw her one time during my pregnancy she was the one to deliver my daughter but she was attentive and caring.
Great Practice for Women by
Happy Mom -
This practice is amazing!! The ladies really care about you and take the time to get to know you. I've been seeing Karen Nguyen for a few years now and she is the best always taking the time to talk during your appointments. I never feel I have to wait too long, just normal wait time for doctor's appointments. I also have to disagree with the young reviewer and have always had a pleasant experience with the office staff. I was running late for an OB appointment and called in and they were perfectly nice and have never had a problem when needing to reschedule appointments, they always worked with me.
DR. REESE IS GREAT! THE STAFF IS WONDERFUL! THEY CARE ABOUT YOU! THEY CARE ABOUT YOUR BABY! by
I don't agree with the previous reviewer at all. I have always found the entire staff at Blue Ridge to be welcoming and professional. I have been going here since 2003 and Dr. Reese was my doctor through both of my high risk pregnancies. She is always very thorough and caring. Throughout both pregnancies, if I had even the smallest question, I knew I could call and they would help. Usually my questions would be answered by a nurse, but if they didn't know, they would consult with my Dr. and get back to me. Yes, when you're pregnant, especially high risk, they are adamant that you take care of yourself and "follow their advice," but that is because they are concerned about the well-being of you and your unborn child. My only complaint is that sometimes your appointment gets canceled or you have to wait even with a appointment, but that's usually because an emergency may have come up or the Dr. may have gotten called in for a delivery. But, that's their job and they do it well!
HEARTLESS PLEASE DON'T GO!!!!! by
THAT CHICK U KNOW!! -
DO NOT GO HERE!! Most awful place ever. I agree, doctors were better than the office staff. I was going to be 5 mins late for an appt and i called them to let them know. the person i was talking to asked where i was!(like thats any of her business!) i told her i was at the hospital,about 5 mins away(my mom was at a breast cancer appt) DRIVING mins, btw! she suggested i walk,mind you i am 6 months pregnant in HOT AUGUST ! she then continued to yell at me because i wouldn't walk and basically i was a piece of crap! i cried and my mom gave her hell! lolalso, i think they discriminated against me because i was only 16 at the time.they were not personal at all. i had gestational diabetes and somehow,ultimately, got kicked out and am never allowed back there because i didn't "follow their rules" ??? yeah they're a-holes.. PLEASE! Anybody thinking of going there,DON'T! Especially if you are young, they will discriminate. ps-have seen all the drs there, they need to go back to school! i w
