Dear patient,I am posting this message to let you know how sorry we are to hear of your experience at our office. Thank you so much for taking the time to write about your visit. It is through input like yours that we learn and have the opportunity to evaluate what we do, and how we do it. Firstly, I would point out that in the many years of performing ultrasounds here, this is the first time any patient has indicated any concern over having the sonographer present. This is not to say that patients do not ask the sonographer to leave, but I believe it is the first time I have heard a complaint. That being said, I believe you are correct, and it is not appropriate to expect patients to change in the presence of another person. Therefore, we are evaluating solutions to the problem. In the meantime, the team of sonographers who work here have been retrained to be considerate of patients privacy. With regards to the waiting room, we often invite our patients to leave a urine sample while they are in the waiting room, awaiting their appointment with the provider. This just saves a little time in the grand scheme of things and puts the waiting time to good use. Subsequent to the ultrasound appointment, we routinely check with the medical assistants to determine whether the Doctor is ready to bring you back, which in 90% of the time, is the case. During your appointment with the sonographer, your Doctor was finishing up with other patients and there were no free examination rooms to take you to. Typically we find our patients prefer to wait in the waiting room, rather than in the examination rooms.As to some of the terminology that is presented to you via the patient portal, we find that a great deal of the coding jargon utilized is inconclusive and misleading to patients since many of the codes and their descriptions are used for a vast array of different symptoms. We are hopeful with the introduction of ICD-10, this will improve as the new system in vastly superior in its’ ability to pinpoint diagnosis.With the advent of patients having the opportunity to review the medical record in our portal, we have found that many of our patients are confused and sometimes concerned by some of the terminology used and required by insurance companies. This process coupled with the mechanism with which the electronic medical records documents, mean that often, the language is not easy to follow. There are many aspects to proper documentation in the medical record and often we need to combine different areas of information to build the complete picture.It is unfortunate you could not have communicated your concerns directly to our office, prior to writing your blog. I believe given the opportunity to discuss this with us, you would have a much better understanding of what we do, and how much we care about every patient and their health. We are sorry to lose you as a patient but hope you are able to find a practice that is a better fit.Kind regardsBrian ThornC.E.O. FABEN

I sincerely hoped the best for my visit to Faben and was disappointed. This place felt nothing like a spa to me (it is advertised on the website as a "spa-like setting") - it seemed entirely similar to any other ob/gyn office I've ever been to except you wear a thin robe for the exam instead of the standard medical sheet. Aside from the main receptionist, the staff seemed short and hurried - the nurse wrote down my medical history on a napkin and though she said she did so in order to remember it, that seemed unprofessional at best. I had to specifically request to speak with the doctor before undressing, which I've never had to do before in a new office. Disposable exam tools were sitting out uncovered - the doctor said they didn't have to be sterile and while that may be true, I prefer my former (but out-of-state, sadly) office's practice of using individually wrapped ones. I was open with my concerns and give the doctor credit for listening and offering not to charge me. When I asked if there was anything else she could tell me about the office (hoping it would change my mind) she responded that she was not in sales. While I understand that to some extent, having taken the time to carefully look through the website, I thought she might be a little more reassuring since that is one of their selling points.

I have been going to the practice for over 20 years, and the doctors and staff are great. They are professional, caring, and provide quality care to their patients. They have helped my family with obstetrical care by delivering my children and my two nieces; and they continue to provide quality gynecological care to myself and family. They also offer many services such as sonograms, mammography, bladder health testing, hemorrhoid treatments and hormone replacement therapy. All of these services in one place to make it convenient to keep your medical care on track with such a busy life schedule. I recommend this practice for all your gynecological or obstetrical needs, although I haven't needed all their services, it is comforting to know the service is offered, should I need them in the future. I recommend this office to anyone looking for a new doctor in the Jacksonville and surrounding areas.

I have been going to this office since 2005 for my yearly pap smears and checkup. My doc is Dr. Laubscher and she is great. I became pregnant last year (2009) and of course decided I was staying with the same practice for my prenatal care and delivery. All pregnant women are encouraged (not forced) to see all of the doctors sometime through their care simply because, as with most OBGYNs, you are not guaranteed one particular doc for your delivery. Meeting with all the docs just gets you acquainted with each of them so there are no surprises on your delivery day. Dr Wells delivered my baby 6/19/10 and he was great. I typically don't prefer male docs but he was actally my 2nd choice (next to my doc-Dr Laubscher). I will be having all of my children through this office! :)

I am a 5 year patient of this practice and the front office is staff is not the best. I have not wanted to leave because didn't want the dreaded hassle of finding a new doctor and transferring records. But I had had enough and finally found a new doctor. I had tried to reach Stephanie for days to request medical records. When she finally called me back, I was told she would check on something and get right back to me. 7 days later I am still waiting for that return phone call and yes I have left messages.

I was really nervous when my primary care doctor referred me to a male GYN for my problem. I am really glad that I followed the recommendation. I have never been treated better than how Dr. McDyer treated me. He was friendly, compassionate and sincere. He was a great listener, too. I quickly forgot why I was ever nervous. I will refer all of my friends and family to him!

Mary is an amazing doctor! She made me feel comfortable and was very personable. As you know ladies, OBGYN visits can be uncomfortable and awkward but with Mary I felt at ease. I will never go to another doctor. Always on time with her schedule and fits me in when she is over booked yet I never wait longer than 10-15 minutes and the office visits are quick and painless.

I met with Reagan Thomas ARNP today. I work in the medical field and she is by far thee sweetest person ive met. She is informative and exciting. She made my longer wait worth it. The front staff was very inviting and personable as well. The office was clean and cozy. I can't wait to go back. I will get to meet Dr. Boyd who Ive only heard good things about.

My visit was wonderful. The office is beautiful, the staff is friendly and courteous and Dr. McDyer is outstanding. He explained everything to me so that I understood what my problem was and he made sure I understood what he expected from my treatment. My wait was brief. I would recommend this office and Dr. McDyer to anyone I know.

I wouldn't have anyone else deliver my children by Dr. McDyer. He has delivered 2 of my children. He and Dr Anders are patient even with clients like me who are sensitive when it comes to OB/GYN procedures. If I were to get pregnant again or needed personal care I wouldn't hesitate to trust them with either me or my baby.
Tips & Advices
OB/GYNs learn to treat infertility as part of their standard education. OBGYNs who further their training in reproductive endocrinology and infertility are known as fertility specialists.
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a treatment where medication is used to replace hormones a woman's body does not create naturally. Women are prescribed either estrogen alone or a mix of estrogen and progesterone. The former is given to women who've had hysterectomies, while the latter is for postmenopausal women. HRT used to be a common treatment, but doctors have prescribed it less often in recent years, as concerns of negative side effects increased.
Endometriosis is a chronic condition where uterine tissue (endometrium) grows in areas outside the uterus. This can cause extreme pain, especially around menstruation and during sex. Other symptoms include infertility, chronic fatigue, and painful urination or bowel movements during menstruation. In addition, many women with endometriosis also have allergies, frequent yeast infections, or sensitivity to certain chemicals.
Morning sickness is a common pregnancy symptom that includes nausea and occasional vomiting. Despite its name, morning sickness can occur at any time of day. The exact reason for this condition isn't clear, although most believe it results from hormone changes affecting muscle contraction and relaxation in the stomach and intestines. Another theory suggests morning sickness is caused by an abundance of intestinal bacteria in pregnant woman.
OBGYNs can prescribe or perform the following types of birth control:
  • Contraceptive pills
  • Birth control shots
  • Implants
  • Diaphragms
  • Vaginal rings
  • Cervical caps
  • Intrauterine devices
  • Tubal ligation
  • Hysterectomies
Women do not need to see an OBGYN to obtain over-the-counter forms of birth control such as male condoms, female condoms, or sponges.
