Ratings for Dr. Stephen R. Terry
Absolutely phenomenal doctor! He recently delivered my first baby, and I had moved across the country around 17 weeks along, not knowing what to expect out of my new obstetrician. At my first appointment, he took me into his personal office and just took some time to get to know who I was, which was nice considering I was surrounded by inviting pictures of families and babies rather than by medical instruments that are used for exams that sometimes give me nightmares. LOL! That gesture made me feel so comfortable with the change in doctor--he was so kind and friendly! I always left each appointment feeling like a million bucks, and the delivery was such a beautiful experience, thanks to Dr. Terry and his wonderful staff. And boy, does he know his stuff! I truly felt that Dr. Terry would bend over backwards for me and my husband's preferences (and he did a few times!) Cindy is a sweetheart and so helpful. She remembers things about her patients and is so kind and knowledgeable. She always made me feel validated with my questions, no matter how silly they seem now. I couldn't ask for a better place to deliver a baby!
Dr. Terry and his team have been my OBGYN through two normal pregnancies as well as one miscarriage, an ectopic pregnancy, and a ruptured cyst. He has a great bedside manner, keeps current on all the latest trends, and delivers 95% of his own patients (according to his own estimate when I asked him). This was true for us when he came in after 8 p.m. for both my deliveries even though he was not on call. Dr. Terry has called me personally just to check in even though everything in my chart indicated all was well. He will change the plan for your care based on the medical information at hand, lab results, the symptoms you describe, and his gut feeling as he feels is best for your health. He is upbeat and proactive. His nurse, Cyndee, remembers patients very well, cares about them, and keeps on top of what follow up is needed. She is a fast phone talker, but that is to be expected when she and Dr. Terry have a heavy workload. She knows her stuff and tells you what you need to know as directly as she can. Appointment times can be right on schedule or you may end up waiting for over an hour depending on whether Dr. Terry is delivering a baby or not. Typical wait time for me has been about 15 minutes. I've probably had over fifty scheduled appointments and have only had to wait for about an hour or so on three occasions. I highly recommend Dr. Terry and his team.
BEST DOCTOR OUT THERE! Dr. Terry delivered me when I was born ( and all of my siblings) and I have recently had the opportunity to deliver MY first baby with Dr. Terry. The whole process was SO scary for me and Doctor Terry was so great to help me understand what was going on, what to expect next and helped keep the feeling in my delivery room so peaceful and calm. I need doctor terry to stay around for a LONG time so that he can deliver all of my babies. Not only did he take the most gentle approach with me but he also included my husband and mom in the whole process which was very important to me. Dr. Terry was there with me through my whole birthing process, even though I know he had other clients waiting for him upstairs, it felt good to know that once it was my turn to deliver, I got his full attention all day long while I was in labor! <3 Terry and his nurse Cyndi!
My experience with Dr. Terry's staff was, unfortunately, only positive on one occasion out of 7. The nurses rarely called back within more than two days to answer my questions. I also had a few terrible experiences stemming from his nurse giving me an inaccurate diagnosis over the phone for a small complication I was having. I waited an AVERAGE of an hour for EACH appointment. I was treated with disdain when I asked if they might tentatively know when I would be seen so that I could let my babysitter know when to expect me. Dr. Terry was very kind. He seemed knowledgeable, but repeated himself quite often. I noticed that he frequently had to look at my chart to remember any pertinent information about me.
Dr. Terry is PHENOMENAL!!!! My mother see's him, my sister see's him, my sister-in-law see's him and I see him. He was my doctor when I delivered my daughter (now three) and was AMAZINGLY helpful at assuaging my fears about child birth. On the day of delivery I was having difficulty dilating and needed to deliver via C-section. Dr. Terry was fantastic and handled the situation like a PRO! You can barely even see I have a scar. Dr. Terry's professionalism and bedside manner is the best of almost any other doctor I have seen.
Dr. Terry spends so much time during an appointment answering my questions. He talks fast, but never makes me feel rushed. He delivered my first baby, a baby that took three ivfs and 7 years to create. Dr. Terry was there for my entire delivery. He turned my baby, and did not just pop in the room to catch the baby in the end as I have seen other docs do. He was working hard with me to turn and have the baby. He is great.
I am so impressed with doctor Terry--I feel like I just have to rate him. I have been through many ivf cycles to get to this little miracle (my first). I didn't have an obgyn so my fertility doc recommended him. At all of my appointments he is confident and allows me to ask any questions that I have. He is upbeat and positive and he is good at making you feel like you are in competent hands. I recently was having severe pain and I called the office and Cindy (his nurse) was amazing and kind and she quickly scheduled the necessary appointments. I had an ultrasound and and cindy AND the dr called me back. I was shocked that he took the time to personally called me to see how I was doing. He is skilled and compassionate ....the perfect combination;)
