Phase II Center for Women's Health Reviews
Dr Angela Jones really heard me and offered great advice.
I had a fantastic experience at this office. The staff are friendly and professional. Dr. Jones is thorough, approachable and knowledgeable. I felt seen and heard.
I saw Julie Jones after losing my former doctor in the pandemic. Julie is great! Great sense of humor and very kind, but extremely thorough and helpful. She reviewed my labs in detail with me - I've never had a doctor do that. She is treating my perimenopause with compassion and care. Love her! Office staff are all great as well, very kind and helpful.
Dr Graul is incredible. She listened to all my concerns and needs and made it happen. I had been looking for a doctor for almost 10 years to do a hysterectomy and she is the first to say yes. It was the best decision. Recovery was a breeze. I didn’t take any major pain killers other than ibuprofen after day 3 and was back to work full time after 1 week. Highly recommend Dr Graul!
Angela is very knowledgeable professional and friendly. I’m so glad I found her!
