What our patients are saying
“I thought Dr. Rogers was kind communicating with me, answering all my questions and concerns. I will be looking forward seeing her again in the near future for my doctor visits.”
“Excellent care and customer service. Mrs Susan Rogers Midwife was knowledgeable very caring and gentle during my annual exam I felt very comfortable with her. I would strongly recommend to family or friends :)”
“I love the Physicians and Midwives practice. Both of my children were born with their help at Alexandria Hospital, and each time there were complications that they handled in a way that left me and the baby perfectly healthy and happy. I especially appreciated their openness to my natural childbirth birth plan. I wasn’t pushed into any medical interventions or drugs that I didn’t care for. As an older lady, they still care for me with professional, personal kindness and care. Susan Rogers is an excellent listener, and together we come up with good plans to achieve optimal health for me as I enter my post-menopause years.”
“It was one of the best medical appointments I have ever had. Sue was kind, thoughtful, and took the time to walk me through all the possibilities of the symptoms I was experiencing. She made me feel at ease and told me exactly what she was doing during the exam. You are lucky to have her on staff!”
“What a wonderful office! From start to finish everyone was very professional, knowledgeable and stress free. Susan Rogers is great; intelligent, understanding, caring and very thorough. I highly recommend.”
