I really enjoy having Dr. Draper as my OBGYN he has been very helpful during all three of my pregnancies and has been really helpful with helping me to decide what would be good and safe for me and my babies

January 25, 2017

Dr Draper is an amazing and thoughtful Doctor. It is always a good experience with him!

December 05, 2016

provider gave us the time we need to ask questions.

September 01, 2016

I can't say enough good about Dr Draper. He has been so supportive and helpful throughout my entire pregnancy. I trust him completely and know he has my best interest (and the health of my baby) in mind. When I had concerns he never brushed them off but took time outside of my appointments to research and consider the things I had questioned. He was always available to help and I will be forever grateful he was my doctor for this pregnancy. Anyone in need of a high risk doctor would be in good hands with Dr Draper.

August 30, 2016

Dr. Draper is a wonderful doctor. He has always taken time with my husband and I to answer our questions and explain things well to us.

August 17, 2016

I would have an easier time recommending him if he wait times weren't so bad. But he's a good doctor and I know that so he is worth the wait to me, but maybe not for others.

August 13, 2016

Dr.Draper has taken wonderful care of me over the course of this pregnancy. The staff has been very friendly and professional as well.

May 30, 2016

Dr Draper was very caring and helpful. we didn't have the news we wanted during the visit but him and the ultrasound tech Susan made it bearable because they were so kind and caring.

April 30, 2016

Dr. Draper was friendly and attentive. He didn't make the appointment feel at all rushed and listened attentively to my questions. Overall, I had a notably positive experience at this appointment.

March 14, 2016

Dr. Draper was amazing! Took the time to explain all of my potential risks and calmed a lot of my anxiety about having a baby.

March 07, 2016

Dr. Draper was professional, compassionate and extremely knowledgeable. He took the time to answer everyone of my questions, described each test with great detail, provided information and explanations for everything. I felt very comfortable with Dr. Draper. I would highly recommend him to anyone in my situation. He and his staff were wonderful as were the ladies at the MFM center across the hall. I am extremely impressed with the care I received.

February 29, 2016

I was very impressed with the amount of time Dr. Draper sat down and discussed my care with me. He listened and answered all of our questions. I trust Dr. Draper because I know he really cares about his patients.

January 09, 2016

Dr. Draper was great to talk to about my high risk pregnancy! He is the second high-risk doctor that I have seen and he was definitely more informative about my options and my risks.

November 10, 2015

These ratings & comments are for both the NST nursing staff and the Emergency OB Services nursing staff, both of whom helped us last week when the baby was having a few unexplained decels. Such great staff who have been so attentive and answered every question we had! Thank you!

November 09, 2015

I have been very grateful for the interest in me and my baby and the patience in explaining anything I might have trouble understanding. I am grateful and humbled by the amount of time I am given when going over explanations and instructions. I think Dr. Draper is marvelous!

October 08, 2015

Dr. Mike Draper and his all of his nurse practitioners have been extremely helpful whenever I have had questions or concerns. They have gone out of their way to return a call promptly and express their concern for my health & comfort.

May 10, 2015

usually he is great, but it was a busy day.

April 27, 2015

Dr Draper and Rita are amazing!

April 11, 2015

Dr. Draper and Rita are awesome. I am grateful to have had them take care of me through my pregnancy.

January 26, 2015

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

Excellent care in every way.

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!

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
