Dr. Dykes acted rushed during every appointment & was incredibly rude each time.
Patient | July 3, 2017

Would like to have been listened to more often while sharing concerns and recent medical history involving serious sickness.
Patient | June 21, 2017

Great doctor! She delivered both of my children. I have gone to her for over 20 years, and would not want to see anyone else.
Patient | May 22, 2017

Dr. Dykes is a very knowledgeable physician; however her interactions with the patient and family came off as very rude!
Patient | May 20, 2017

She's an excellent OB, she just talks very fast. If she could slow down just a bit would be better.
Patient | April 28, 2017

I have been seeing Dr. Dykes for over 7 years. She is very straight forward and an honest person. I can talk to her about anything. She is the best! Also this past several years, I drive about an hour to see her. That's how comfortable I am with her.

terrible experience
Patient | January 30, 2017

Dr. Dykes delivered my 23 year old son. I've been seeing her since then.
Patient | December 27, 2016

She pushed her beliefs & agenda on me. She did not seem to respect my opinions about what to do with my body.
Patient | December 10, 2016

The best!
Patient | November 21, 2016

unfriendly. rude. condescending.
Patient | October 17, 2016

Last yr.'s check up disappointing too. This recent visit was her 2nd and least chance.
Patient | October 10, 2016

Sometimes difficult to understand due to medical terms.
Patient | September 28, 2016

De. Dykes is very personable - asks questions about my personal life/situation that shows she remembers me form past visits. Very collaboartive in terms of making health care decisions (e.g. meds). She always knows the more current guidelines and recommendation
Patient | August 30, 2016

The provider was very passionate about recessive genetic testing. I said 'no' 4 times during her pitch and I left the appointment feeling a little uncomfortable about how things went.
Patient | August 18, 2016

This was my first experience w/this provider and she was very knowledgeable/helpful. She answered all questions I had.
Patient | August 10, 2016

I have been seeing Doctor dykes since I was 17 years old -- during my annual exams, she has always been helpful and very pleasant. However, I recently seen her to diagnose a problem that I have been having. She belittled all of my concerns, made snide marks about me calling the clinic prior to my appointment to ask questions, made rude remaks when I answered her 'what did you have for lunch' question, and kept asking me conflicting questions and would then become upset when I didn't know how to answer. She was short, smart and irritable. Then, when she preformed my pelvic exam, she put in the speculum and WALKED OFF to look at her calendar and ask questions that I had already answered. I don't care who you are -- no one wants that thing LEFT inside of them. Once the exam was finished, she rudely pointed me towards the exit and that was that. When you looke Doctor dykes up online, she has terrible reviews -- now, I understand them. Zero patience. Zero care. Zero bedside manner. I will not be going back to the Franklin women's center.

Loved Dr. Dykes!
Patient | August 4, 2016

She asked if we were trying to get pregnant after I had just seen her for a visit 3 months earlier about possible infertility. And I told her at my last annual visit that I had just stopped birth control and that we were trying to get pregnant.
Patient | August 1, 2016

I love Dr. Dykes - Great bedside manner acts like a friend!!
