Patient Comments

    Dr Baldwin was very friendly, understanding and informative. She really connected with my daughter and made her feel like she mattered

  • Dec 22, 2019

    I had a good experience with this provider. We were seen quickly. As soon as we were putting the room which was a nice change from other practices that I've been at. The only thing that I would suggest or that I would say could use improvement was that during the ultrasound I felt like I had to ask more questions or the information that we were looking at. I would have liked to have been told more what we were looking at as in the uterus as far as baby goes have been explained things a little bit more as far as you know, what to expect and maybe have received a better image of the ultrasound as the one that we had just didn't show much of anything. I walked out of the appointment still having quite a few questions of the ultrasound time, but other than that everything was good.

  • Dec 21, 2019

    Dr Baldwin explained the procedure in great detail, gave me a chance to ask questions. Verified my plan if things didn’t go as anticipated. She ensured I would be kept comfortable and she had reviewed my previous ultrasound and procedure as well as notes from visit with Dr Jensen. She was extremely professional and reassured me she had no concerns about doing the procedure.

    Maureen is very supportive of any patients' decisions. She's attentive to visit to details and the wishes and desires of the patient. She's personable enough to actually have a, just relaxed conversation while still doing her job. She listens to patients' needs and really support them on everything. She's quite straightforward and it's very welcome from my part so I can understand what type of treatment, what course of action is necessary to be taken. She's very honest. She's knowledgeable. She's supportive, and really knows how to put a patient at ease during any type of procedures that might cause some, you know, discomfort or distress.
