this far into my pregnancy I should have weekly appointments. yet I'm still coming in every 4 weeks?! I only have 6 weeks left to go till delivery! I haven't had all the shots I need and I feel they didn't do a lot of tests that my old Dr. in Vancouver would have already done! Its like hood river isn't as educated. which scares me.

I value Dr. Adsit's calm and thoughtful manner. She listens carefully, shows kindness, respect and concern and appears very knowledgeable. I appreciate that she has personally called with test results when these were of particular concern.

Dr Adsit listened to me with sensitivity.the staff only uses my first name when I'm being called in to my visit. I appreciate this privacy. The only thing I can say is the rest room is in the waiting room,

I really like Dr. Grissom

My 1st time seeing this provider. I was initially disappointed that I had to find a new doctor and "start over" so to speak. But I was quite comfortable with Dr. Adsit and found her to be very patient, good listener, helpful. I will continue to see her for all my gynecological care needs.

Dr. Adsit exhibits a caring, calm demeanor and explains things thoroughly. I feel lucky to have her as one of my physicians.

Dr. Adsit and her medical assistant were both very respectful and attentive. They addressed my needs and made me feel listened to. I appreciated that the assistant asked me personal questions about domestic violence. I am not a victim of domestic violence, but I am very grateful that your staff address this issue in a routine manner to assist patients. It is very important! Thank you.

They were able to IM the dietitian and get me in that same day for an appointment. It was very easy and helpful!

Dr. Adsit was friendly & professional. At the end of my appointment, I asked her a question about a diagnosis that was not OBGYN related. She listened, researched, & was able to correctly diagnose my symptoms & prescribed the correct medication. I have seen 2 other doctors for the same symptoms. but they weren't able to help.

Dr. Adsit takes her time and listens well. She is kind and seems genuinely interested in me as her patient. I appreciate the great care she gave me.

Completely satisfied with my care provider!

Very good at diagnosing and helping with medical problems. Very compassionate and feel very confident about medical advice.

dr ADsit made it comfortable to deal with a very personal problem - she is gentle but firm

She's very polite always washes her hands listens to my complaints or what's going good. I actually enjoy this Doctor & all personnel.

live this team of providers at the women's clinic ! Also the nurse [...] is very compassionate and enjoy her.

I appreciated Dr. Adsit taking the time to answer all of my questions in detail and not rushing me at all.

[...] my only complaint was that there was. 6 weeks between calling for appt and availability for apptI really appreciated that dr Adsit called with my results- even before I expected them !

This was my first appt. with this doctor. I feel she listened to me which is a step up from how I have felt in the past. We shall see.
