dr Ziegler was knowledgeable and kind. she explained everything thoroughly and went out of her way to ensure my daughter was comfortable.
Michelle Ziegler was fantastic with my daughter( and myself). She was compassionate(especially given the embarrassing nature of our visit), attentive and made us feel that there was nothing else that mattered while she was with us. She did not rush us at all. I can't say enough wonderful things about her.
This provider was very thorough and was knowledgeable about the condition my daughter suffers from.
Ms. Ziegler made both my daughter & I feel very comfortable from the moment we walked in the door.
The whole facility was thoughtfully designed and well laid out. The provider spent as much time with us as we needed. I was caught off guard by the requirement to check-in at the kiosk first- it was not obvious and the process was cumbersome and poorly worded. The button to proceed was not consistent from screen to screen, and I never knew when I was done checking in.
This was our first visit with Michelle since Dr.Dhar left, so we were a little anxious about the change. But Michelle was so great with both my daughter and I and genuinely cares about her patients.
We really only saw Michelle Ziegler at the end of my child's appointment as she was training another Physician's Assistant at the time. When we did see her she seemed very knowledgeable and concerned.
Dr was perfect for my daughter first gyno appt
Michelle was very thorough and understanding. She treated my daughter with kindness and respect. She was able to comment on all aspects of my daughter's care since she was very thorough in looking at her records.
Friendly, intelligent, approachable!
Dr. Cooper is the best!!
The doctor was fantastic. My daughter loved her and felt comfortable - that is half the battle! We had trouble filling our script and the office is currently helping us with a different medication
Dr was very informative and friendly
My care provider was very respectful and helpful. She listened to any questions I had and did her best to answer them in a way that I understood well.
Everyone is very kind at this facility. My daughter has a disability and the staff talk to both my daughter and me (her mother). I like that we are both included in the conversations.
Dr Ziegler is wonderful. She is kind, caring, knowledgeable, understanding. Can't ask for a better Dr!!
my child felt very positive about the doctor she saw. she commented after the appointment about how kind she was and how helpful she seemed.
The waiting time to see the doctor/PA was very long, 45minute wait.
First time at this office with this provider the nurse was very friendly and nice and the provider also was very friendly and helpful.

Michelle was awesome she showed us compassion and respect I would highly recommend her
My daughter and I had a wonderful visit, and the doctor was caring and thorough with the details and explanations. She explained information in terms that my daughter could understand, and she listened to my daughter's questions. Extremely pleased.
She was very nice and I felt very comfortable sharing everything with her, even the uncomfortable topics.
Dr. Ziegler was so wonderful with my daughter and sensitive to the fact that she'd never been to the gynecologist before. she also explained things to her in a way she could relate. we will definitely return for another visit with this Dr.
The provider was wonderful in that she had firsthand experience and knowledge regarding the questions we asked. She provided treatment options very quickly.
