Since I am not high risk it seemed my problems and questions weren't a big deal. This is my first pregnancy and I really have no idea what to expect.

November 11, 2013

He helped me with my main problem but did not stay for me to ask my other questions.

September 29, 2013

The doctor took the time to talk about everything that concerned me about my situation. He spent the time listening to my questions and concerns and made sure I was satisfied with answers and how we would move forward with my situation before the visit ended.

Dr Branch was great! He took time to thoroughly explain any risks of my conditions. He seemed passionate about his work. He took time to look at my specific circumstances to come up with a plan to go forward. He answered all my questions honestly and didn't sugar coat the answers.

February 25, 2013

I really appreciate the time he took with us to talk things through. I did not feel rushed or that he didn't care. I have been in and out of doctors offices for the past 5 yrs and Dr. Branch was the best at making me feel like it will be okay and he would help me if I got pregnant.

perinatologist did an amazing job coming up with a plan. He was very knowledgeable, personable, and informative and considered an asset to your team!

July 13, 2012

Even though we were there after a successful pregnancy for a consultation regarding a future pregnancy, I was very impressed with the amount of attention we received and the thoughtfulness with which our questions were answered. While I felt like we were

June 27, 2012

Dr. Branch was very much to the point without waffling around, which is what I was looking for. I don't really dig the fake sympathy, I just want the facts, so that was great. He obviously knows a whole heck of a lot about the subject, and even though I understood it, it was a bit fast.

June 25, 2012

Dr. Branch was fantastic! He was very direct without being rude or condescending. I'm sure that I probably made him late for a meeting but he took the time to answer all of my questions, explain everything in detail and make sure that I understood everything that he said. The visit with him was motivating.

May 15, 2012

physician took ample time to discuss past issues and bring sense to the current situation.

April 24, 2012

Dr. Branch is very effective about communicating all information needed and answering any questions I have. The staff need to learn to not fear bad news. I am a patient that wants any and all information. During my ultrasound the technician did not talk or explain anything and it felt as if she were afraid of my reactions to what was or was not being seen.

April 10, 2012

I've seen Dr. Branch before I have complete confidence in him and his abilities. He was very kind to let me know that I could come in any time I was concerned.

We were amazed by the amout of time the doctor spent with us.
