the dr talked me through options to address endometriosis. she also suggested a dr closer to my home for more convenience. she also talked about care to monitor my high bp results. I would've liked to discuss more natural options instead of surgical or prescriptions, but she didn't seem to want to talk about other options.

January 17, 2015

I really like my provider and I feel confident, comfortable and I trust that he will help me have a happy pregnancy as much as he can and he will deliver my baby safely.

December 15, 2014

Dr. Draper is a wonderful doctor and has made my experience amazing!

October 18, 2014

Both Dr.Draper and the student were very nice and I aways look formward to going in and seeing Dr.Draper. He is a great doctor and eases my worries and concerns

September 15, 2014

Dr Draper was rushed because he'd had to spend so much time at the c section so it's understandable but i felt he didn't address well what I should expect after the small procedure he did and it ended up being very painful the remainder of the day.

August 27, 2014

after going to an OB for my first pregnancy (twins) and not having my many concerns addressed, I chose to go to Dr. Draper. I have never had such amazing care from a medical professional. Dr.Draper spent over 2 hours answering all my questions and concerns. The sense of relief I felt after my visit is indescribable. I am so thankful to everyone at this office for being so kind, professional and taking the time to explain my medical situation. Such wonderful care and people!

August 04, 2014

Dr. Draper was excellent he was worth waiTing for. As a first time visit the only time I was very uncomfortable was in the waiting area.

July 10, 2014

I have complete confidence and appreciation for Dr. Draper and all of the staff I have worked with. They are genuinely concerned and involved in every question/concern that I have, big or small. I never feel confused, belittled, or passed over. I feel I can ask them anything and always receive a thorough explanation. In addition to how clear and thorough they are I am continually impressed with their genuine kind, attentive, and friendly demeanor

May 27, 2014

I live in South Carolina and could easily find a PCP here, but there is a reason I chose to schedule my appointment while visiting family in Utah. It is hard to find a clinic that is as courteous and friendly as the MFM clinic at the U.

May 08, 2014

I really like Dr. Draper. He is very good to take his time when meeting with me. He will ask me several times if I have any questions and he always makes sure I am okay before he leaves the room. I feel that he is really concerned about me and my problems.

May 06, 2014

My husband and I walked away being more than impressed with Dr. Draper and with the amount of time he spent with us. He was so positive and spent a lot of time asking questions as well and listening to our concerns.

December 14, 2013

Dr. Draper made us feel very comfortable and explained everything perfectly. We look forward to going thru this difficult pregnancy with him as our care provider.

July 29, 2013

Dr. Draper is extremely patient oriented, and was very sympathetic to my concerns about this pregnancy. I am fortunate to have him as my physician.

June 03, 2013

My husband and I both appreciate the care that Dr. Draper gives to me during pregnancy. He is really good to explain things to us, and involves me in decisions whenever possible. We would definitely recommend Dr. Draper to anyone!

March 18, 2013

Dr. Draper always takes time with me to explain any concerns or upcoming needs for me to watch for with my pregnancy. He expressed genuine concern and promised to follow up by emailing some great resources to me to help me get better control over my diet plan and to help stabilize my bg levels. He goes above and beyond my expectations and I walk away knowing that he truly cares about the health of my baby and me. I have had some great doctors in the past, but have never had a doctor that takes time out of his regular hours to ensure that I have the proper resources and understanding to better my health and provide the best opportunity for my unborn baby!

March 18, 2013

I am very pleased with our experience with Dr. Draper. He went out of his way to help us feel comfortable in every particular. He talked with us without being rushed, respected my wishes, and gave wonderful explanations. Our visit with him was a wonderful experience! The only minute area in which he might improve would be this: I wish he would be more supportive towards hypnobirthing/hypnobabies methods, as they provided a virtually completely pain-free labor for my first pregnancy. It was one of the most exhilarating experiences of my life, one that really works! I got the impression that he didn't have as much faith in those methods. But of course I could have read and judged his repsonse inaccurately. And that's really a minor concern. I would recommend his care to anyone I met!! His ability to connect with patients, work with them, his decision-making and passion in his profession, and attention to detail are fabulous, and are simply off-the-charts great!

February 11, 2013

Dr. Draper went above and beyond! He thoroughly answered every question I had in detail (and I had a lot). He never once tried to rush me even though I have a feeling I was putting the schedule behind. I appreciate the followup call a few days later. I feel like Dr. Draper really truly cares about his patients! Thank you!

February 04, 2013

Although this is the worst possible situation I have ever been in, Dr. Draper and all of the staff at the University Hospital made this situation more bearable. As I said before, I have never felt so cared for by doctors and nurses. I know that we are in the best hands possible. After seeing Dr. Draper I don't know how I will possibly ever be satisfied with another doctor. You just don't find this kind of care anywhere else.

February 04, 2013

Dr. Draper was very kind, and excellent in helping to allay my worries. He was very knowledgeable and thorough.

January 07, 2013

Dr. Draper spent time with us to talk about my pregnancy and his concern with keeping my blood sugars in check and reducing the amount of insulin I would need to take. He explained to me that not only does high blood glucose increase the risk and growth of baby, but that higher doses of insulin can do that as well. My endocrinologist hasn't even taken time to explain that to me! I am very impressed with how involved Dr. Draper is with us and that he takes time to make sure we are not only getting the care we need, but that we are doing the best we can to ensure our baby's health and well-being. He is the best!! When he realizes that we really understand and care about what he is telling us, he takes our understanding to an even deeper level so that we are learning more about how to better care for our growing baby.

December 26, 2012

She should know i have high blood pressure i asked if it was safe to take fenugreek she said yes my blood pressure went crazy with meds that control it

December 03, 2012

Dr Draper took the time to explain things to us and show us around.

October 12, 2012

Dr. Draper is wonderful. He really listens to his patients, addresses their concerns, and when appropriate, makes referrals to other medical providers. He is very available. He takes ownership- when a conflict came up with my scheduled appointment time, he called me himself and let me know other options for both my ultrasound and my appointment time with him, and then gave me a direct phone number to reach him to reschedule. He is highest on my list of great providers.

October 02, 2012

Dr. Draper is top notch! I feel very comfortable discussing my concerns and worries with him and he takes the time to make sure that I understand what can happen and how we can overcome the problem should it arise. He is genuine and cares that my husband and I are comfortable with the care of our baby. I am confident that if a problem should arise, he will help us work through it.

September 10, 2012

I was extremely impressed with Dr. Draper. He was genuine in his concern and took time to talk to my husband and I, to get to know us and to begin to build a doctor/patient relationship. We are confident that he is just the doctor we need to help us through our pregnancy and do anything he can to ensure us that our baby will have the best care possible. I was uneasy when I made the appointment but he put me at ease with my decision and I left knowing that it was the right decision!

August 25, 2012

Dr. Draper was amazing, very impressed with his knowledge and the time he spent with us explaining our situation. Would recommend him to anyone! He was great!

August 21, 2012

Rita and Dr. Draper are always good to answer the questions I have, as well as discuss common topics that perhaps I hadn't realized need addressing because I was new the situation. I always feel like they are attentive, caring, and ready to make sure I am taken care of.

June 18, 2012

Dr Draper and Rita talked very candidly and thoroughly about everything. We were not rushed and I so appreciate the time they spent talking to my husband and myself. They also laid out how another potential pregnancy's care would differ.

June 12, 2012

Dr. Draper is a very competent professional and also a caring, approachable caregiver. What a great combination!

May 17, 2012

Can't express enough how lucky I feel to have Dr. Draper and his staff taking care of me again. I always feel like a priority.

May 10, 2012

Dr Draper was way awesome. Such great bed side manner courtious, personable, knowledgeable. I think overall he is one of the best out there!

May 03, 2012

Dr Draper is just wonderful and my husband and I feel very lucky to have such excellent care! Thank you for all you do!

March 15, 2012

I LOVE Dr. Draper and Sam (Midwife). I get all my questions answered and feel confident that I am receiving the best care possible. Dr. Draper and his team are the best ever!

March 15, 2012

Excellent care in every way.

February 23, 2012

Dr. Draper was very kind and I feel is going to do everything in his power to help me.

January 12, 2012

I love this office. The doctors listen to your actual needs and concerns and treat you on an individual basis
