Ratings for Dr. Craig N. Defreese
I have been going to Dr. Defreese for about 15 years. He and his staff are professional, polite, courteous and personable. Most of my visits have been very timely. Dr. makes his recommendations but also takes the time to listen to me and takes into consideration how I am feeling. He always answers my questions. Wonderful(I didn't say perfect)doctor and staff.
Patient, always listens to what I have to say and answers any questions, as well as asking good questions to assess my current condition. He performed surgery on me a few years ago and it went well. Much better than any other gyn I'd previously gone to.
The staff was so rude to me and acted like I was putting them out if I had a question. I never saw the doctor I only saw the Physicans Assistants who I also didn't care for. It seemed like everyone in there had zero personality and a chip on their shoulders!
I have been seeing Dr.deFreese for 12 years. I went to him when I was pregnant with my twins. I had the best experiance with him and his entire staff...from the front desk to the office manager they are all wonderful caring people that go far above and beyond making you feel like much more than a patient. i have recommended him to my best friend,mother,and sister. I just had my second surgery performed by Dr.deFreese and felt totally confident with him. I trust him totally. He is a wonderful doctor and has a wonderful staff.
The staff are very friendly and Dr. Defreese is probably the only doctor i know that doesn't rush you through a visit. I've been going there for almost 9 years and have rarely had to wait more than 10-15 min and have had two children.. The midwife Lisa Reilly delivered both of them and could not have been anymore caring . Dr defreese was also helpful in explaining the details of my surgery that he performed and any questions i had.
I have little positive to say about Dr. Defreese. A dear friend's baby was born with problems, due to a poor delivery/inadequate care by Dr. Defreese. My own experience with him was not good either. Despite the Christian literature throughout his office, I found him to act anything BUT Christianlike. I found him to be very condescending, unkempt and cruel. I take these doctor ratings seriously and this is the only doctor I have ever had to rate as "poor". I wouldn't recommend him to anyone and certainly would not let him deliver my children. I did find his office staff to be quite friendly though, and have heard great things about Amy Riley, who I believe is an RN or Nurse/Midwife.
Dr. DeFreese and Lisa Riley (his nurse mid-wife) are the most wonderful people both in the clinical relm and personable relm. They far exceeded my expectations and I have refered every pregnant friend I have EVER had to them since I became a patient there. That to me is the biggest statement that anyone can make.
