There are no words that can describe how grateful we are for choosing Dr. Garvin and Kindbody; thank you so much! Kindbody is one of the most friendly and professional clinics I’ve ever visited. And, I hope we’ll be sending a little picture of a baby in a few months!
I loved that the appointment started on time, and the entire team was friendly. The space was really warm and inviting – 180 of the typical OBGYN experience. Every detail was covered, from the art and books in the waiting room to the fact that there were hangers for my clothes (I usually feel awkward about where to place them on a chair). I felt like I could ask any question and that I was taken care of!
It was an absolutely incredible experience. From the moment I walked in the door. Everyone was so warm. I’m actually looking forward to my gynecology appointment in two weeks.
This is the first time I ever felt truly comfortable, heard, respected, and cared for in a doctor’s office.
The atmosphere was very inviting and clean, the thoroughness of the front office staff and the medical staff was amazing, the doctor spent so much time answering my questions. It felt like an experience, not just a doctors visit.
Unlike most fertility clinics I’ve been to, I had a great experience at Kindbody and didn’t feel like I was just a number in a waiting room full of women.
Experienced providers, with a smarter way to care.
