September 03, 2021
I wish I would've been able to do a teledoc appointment instead. I paid $40 just to be seen for 5 minutes for a refill prescription.
September 03, 2021
From the MA's to the NP I was more than satisfied with their attention to me and my daughter. This was my first time at PIH and they made me feel welcomed and at home. I will most definitely come back when I am pregnant for them to care of me and my little ones.

Doctor was very attentive and professional

Besel is so caring and nice, which makes the appointments less stressful.

I came in on an "emergency"- I'm in my first trimester and was spotting. She listened to my concerns, didn't tell me my ideas that were incorrect were crazy- just nicely explained what actually happened, made me feel comfortable, and was enthusiastic when my baby was active on the ultrasound. Professional but very understanding and sympathetic to my concerns.

Keep up the Good Customer Service!

I started seeing the Dr's in the women's center last year and am so glad I left my last OB. They have great doctors here and I'm always able to get an appointment when I need.

Dr Besel is great she listens to you, she spends time with you, she's very thrall! Makes you feel completely comfortable

Doctor visit was great. Christine Besel saw me right away and addressed my concerns and let me know what the next steps were. Office visit was great. However going to get labs done was another store. Waited more than 45 minutes to get my labs drawn at the MOB office. System of registration seems ineffective and waste of time as others are there for complex procedure.

Christine is awesome and sympathetic to my concerns. Very sweet, knowledgeable, and helpful. She brought a smile to my face just talking to her because of positive personality. Enjoyed the visit.

This provider was excellent and very gentle and had a wonderful bedside manner.
July 23, 2021
She was very compassionate and understanding, and helped me by thinking ahead so I wouldn't have to make another appointment should another issue arise from the medication I needed.
July 14, 2021
She was very professional while being warm and kind. She addressed all my issues. She listen to all my concerns with no judgment. We discussed all my options and came up with a plan that I was comfortable with.
July 12, 2021

June 24, 2021
Thank you so much. It helped me a lot to be able to come in on short notice. Great experiences with this wonderful office.
June 18, 2021
She never came back to see if I had any additional questions or concerns. She spent less than 5 minutes and an office assistant/nurse came to give me some paperwork. I felt I only paid a co payment/charged my insurance to get sent somewhere else without any other information. Where to get my results etc.
June 18, 2021
Courteous and patient, Dr. Besel was extremely informative with my questions and made me feel Comfortable.

June 04, 2021
Always have a great experience.
May 27, 2021
I really appreciated how they got me in so fast, and he talked to me very politely. The whole office atmosphere. There is much nicer than the atmospher at the doctor's office, but at the hospital, They were much Kinder and much more at ease. My doctor's office at the hospital is very uptight, and I don't like going in there, so I was very happy. Thank you very much.
May 14, 2021

I really liked the doctor that attended to me, as equally the other people that were with me.

March 23, 2021
Felt that the office staff were insensitive and lacked creating a safe environment for patients.
March 23, 2021
I love the Doctors there as well as the staff in the back of the office but the front office is the worst to deal with. They are so rude and do not give me a comfortable experience ever. I know I am not the only one who thinks this as well.
March 22, 2021
Great bedside manners. Felt comfortable with asking questions.
March 22, 2021
She was efficient while ensuring that she explained the process of my care thoroughly. She was kind and respectful of my questions and responded to each one thoughtfully. Having never met with me as a patient before, she was intentional about taking time before the implant to engage with me and ensure I was informed and ready.

Nurse Besel is amazing, I could never get same day appointments woth my doctor so she is a great alternative, now I always try her first as getting to see a doctor always seems months away, for women's health sometimes we need immediate assistance.
October 02, 2020
Christine is very professional, she answered all my questions and I feel like she's not rushing to get you out. I love coming to get my yearly wellness checkups with her, she's very patient and gentle.

Friendly staff.
September 29, 2020
Christine Besel is knowledgeable, caring, interested in my well-being and has a kind demeanor. I genuinely feels she cares and takes the time to answer and provide examples as evidence for my questions. This may be why I had to wait longer than usual and if that is the case, it's okay.
