The only thing, I could say, is that I wished she would have pushed me to get my heart and lungs checked, since I only have an annual checkup about my health. Also, I wanted to talk about something personal, but felt having a resident midwife in the room with us, I felt a little uncomfortable to share what I needed to. I'm all for this educational aspect to one's education, but I didn't get what I needed to out of the apt and don't have time for another.UofU Patient August 28, 2015
Susannah Cohen was very kind and helpful.UofU Patient July 19, 2015
Susanna was the best women's health care provider I've ever seen. This was my first time seeing a midwife and I chose to because a couple of friends have told me how much they prefer them over traditional OB/GYNs. Susanna did not disappoint. She spent a significant amount of time with me and was very thorough and courteous. I felt comfortable throughout the entire appointment, which doesn't always happen during an annual exam.UofU Patient April 20, 2015
The midwives in BirthCare HealthCare are the best care providers I have ever experienced. They are so kind and patient. They are knowledgable and thorough. I trusts them 100% with my physical and mental health.UofU Patient April 03, 2015
She kept trying to push birth control on me.UofU Patient February 03, 2015
My favorite thing about Susanna, besides having total confidence in her as a professional, is the kind of questions she asks. She is wonderful and does such a nice job listening and making me feel heard.UofU Patient October 27, 2014
Susanna is really fantastic. I had some concerns that, statistically, probably aren't that much of a concern, but she still took the time to research the problem thoroughly and come up with a plan for how I should proceed.
