I was anxious going in to the appointment, but the doctor was very friendly. She really made me feel comfortable and put my mind at ease. She gave me clear explanations and expectations for everything, which I found helpful.

I had finished my visit and remembered a question I had forgotten to ask. I turned around and went back to the office. A nurse checked to see if the doctor could see me and I was ushered into the doctor's office. There I was given a couple of options on what I could do for my problem. I made a choice and was told by the doctor to call and let her know how things were going and If I wanted to change to another choice.

This was the first time at this practice & I was impressed by the caring, but friendly demeanor Dr. Harraway-Smith had towards me as a patient. She explained everything to me and explained how I would receive my results & discussed with me the best practice for scheduling my next pap & mammogram.
