17/10/13 5 4 5 5 Wonderful doctor! I was recommended to Dr. Straughn by one of my friends that is a nurse that works with her. I am so happy to have found Dr. Straughn. I have had an IUD that was put in several years ago, she eased my mind with issues that I have had questions about, she even ordered an ultrasound to rule out any displacement. No other doctor seemed to be interested in answering my concerns before. I recently had an appendectomy and have a keloid scar from the laparoscopic surgery on my stomach. I have never had a child but Dr. Straughn said that it helps I have that because if I ever have a c-section we could prevent large scars like that by injecting a steroid in the incision. She's so personable and I would recommend anyone to her. She never seems rushed and makes a normally unenjoyable doctor visit into a time that you feel like you're talking to a friend that is genuinely concerned with you and your health.

10/05/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Straughn is the best OB/GYN I have ever seen. I used her for my pregnancy and she was so thoughtful and truly concerned about me and my baby. She answered all of my questions as well as my husbands and my mothers when they would go with me to my appointments. I had a high risk pregnancy and she was excellent and the pregnancy ended up being normal because she was very cautious. She is also great when I see her for my yearly appointments. She is very thorough and if there is something that you have worries about even if it isn't gynecology, she will help you to find an answer. I would recommend her to everyone. I even drive almost 2 hours to see her and don't think twice about it.

29/06/12 5 5 5 5 I have been to several gynecologists in my life and Dr. Straughn is far and above any of them. She is personable and extremely knowledgable. She makes you feel comfortable and is gentle. She is consistently punctual and respects that your time is precious too. Her nurse is fabulous and remembers the patients. I have recommended her to friends and will continue to do so.

02/02/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Heidi is one of the best doctors I have ever been to. Both of my pregnancies ended up being high risk in the end and she went above and beyond to make sure my babies were ok and that I understood everything that was going on. She relates to me on a personal level rather than a strictly medical profession level and this makes a world of difference. When my first baby was in the NICU, she went to see him every day just to make sure he was ok. Dr. Heidi is an amazing person, doctor, and friend.

27/11/08 5 5 5 5 I originally was seeing another doctor in the practice when I asked to switch. Seeing Dr. Heidi and having Becky as a nurse has been the best things that have happened to me during my pregnancy. Dr. Heidi is AWESOME and understands what your body goes through during pregnancy. I have never been so happy to go to the doctor she is a blessing sent from heaven.

29/06/07 5 4 5 5 Dr Straughn is top notch. I work w/her on a daily basis in the hospital Labor & Delivery unit and I have been very impressed with her. Her nurse, Becky, is wonderful. I have never had to wait longer than 30 minutes for her to get back with me(most other docs it takes at least 6-8 hours at best). I would recommend her to any of my family or friends. I have been in the healthcare industry for 20+ years and have never been so impressed w/a physician both as a patient and co-worker. Dr. Straughn has a wonderful bedside manner and puts you at ease immediately. She takes the time to discuss your diagnosis and treatment plan. She is very knowledgable. You can't go wrong with Dr Strughn or her staff!!!

30/01/07 5 5 5 I feel that Dr. Heidi K. Straughn was a gift sent from heaven to me. She and her staff(Becky & Michelle)were more caring and concerned than I ever would have ever imagined they would be. I was already considered "HIGH RISK" when I went to her as a pt. Knowing this Dr. Straughn did everything in and above her power, including research and trials to help my husband & I make it through this pregnancy with a happy ending. Years ago when I was having my 1st daughter,(when Dr. Straughn was still a Resident)her shift for that rotation had come to an end, but I was still only 5-6 cm dialated. I could see that she was tired, but in spite of this she still stayed to see me through this compicated delivery of my baby girl. The fact that Dr. Straughn is the best ob/gyn ever is especially pleasing to me. No, this does not change the fact that I am still High risk now and will probably always be,But if and when I decide to try again and suceed I would not change a thing about my care or my physician
