Love Dr. Dykes. She is attentive & caring. She is a straight shooter and that's what I like to have.
Patient | October 16, 2018

She seemed a bit hurried this time. I was trying to explain what I was experiencing - what I thought was ovulation pain or maybe a cyst since my Mom had to go in an ambulance for a burst one and she seemed to hurriedly talk through that bust cysts were just normal ovulation and I really didn't get a chance to talk through it to my satisfaction or discuss things I might do to resolve the discomfort. She's never been in a hurry before so I hope this was just a fluke!

I greatly appreciated having someone take the time to explain the details of the goal of the appointment. It was also clear the next steps after this appointment and I really appreciated that and knowing this information put me at ease.
Patient | September 11, 2018

I absolutely love Dr Dykes! Great Physician
Patient | August 4, 2018

We had several questions & Dykes rudely stopped us from asking questions & told us she had to finish talking.
Patient | July 23, 2018

I have recommended Dr. Dykes many times to co-workers. She is professional and knowledgable. If I had a serious problem, I would feel confident she would address it accurately and competently.
Patient | July 23, 2018

Dr. Dykes is straightforward and to the point and efficient with her office visits. I really appreciate this. The nurses are very helpful, and I'm usually seen within 10-15 minutes of my appointment time.
Patient | July 18, 2018

I've recommended Dr Dykes and this office in general to many of my friends and acquaintances over the years.
Patient | July 16, 2018

was pleasantly surprised on my care provider (Dr. Dykes)! Was a little confused I thought they already received my previous medical records but quickly that got resolved and I was told I needed to schedule a new mammogram. Overall excellent service and friendly staff would highly recommend this facility to friends and family.
Patient | June 13, 2018

Dr. Dykes is wonderful. She NEVER makes you feel rushed, answers every question with thorough information and respect and offers you various solutions to give you options.
Patient | May 29, 2018

We were told at this appointment that our baby did not have a heart beat. Dr. Dykes encouraged us to take as much time as we needed to make a decision regarding next steps. She also encouraged us to get a second opinion if we felt that was necessary before terminating the pregnancy. She explained all the possible options and made the decision making process easy for my husband and I. We appreciate her patience and her thoroughness.
Patient | May 26, 2018

I thought Dr. Dykes was a very knowledgable clinician, but I felt she was somewhat condescending in how she spoke to me. She told me about a procedure I was due to have next visit that I hadn't been told about before, but made it seem that I should have known all about it. She brought up good things to think about/medical decisions I would have to make, but I thought she could have asked me these questions better. She could have asked me whether I had thought about these things yet in a more informative way, instead of a way that made me feel bad and unprepared.
Patient | May 26, 2018

This provider is the best and I have been seeing her since I moved here 11 years ago. She has also delivered my two babies.
Patient | April 30, 2018

Honestly - I'd heard bad things from a friend about this doc but didn't get a bad impression at all.
Patient | April 22, 2018

I am very happy with Dr. Dykes. She is professional and knowledgeable, and seems to care.
Patient | February 7, 2018

I have recommended her.
Patient | January 27, 2018

I initially started going here because of convenience to my workplace. Now I work somewhere else but I will always come here because of the quality of care I always receive.
Patient | January 24, 2018

I have recommended others to see Dr. Dykes based off the care she provides myself.
Patient | January 22, 2018

Really really nice, would love if staff could be brushed up on LGBT terminology and concerns though!
Patient | January 8, 2018

why have blood pressures taken and recorded as high and not address the blood pressure? the doctor seemed more corncerned with where I would be going on vacation this next year.
Patient | December 25, 2017

Dr. Dykes is the bomb. Love her. Delivered both my kids!
Patient | December 13, 2017

When she asked how I was feeling I told her I felt like I might go earlier this time due to more pre-contractions, etc. She completely dismissed my comments and proof and said every second mother feels that way. Then when I asked a simple question about what exactly the non-stress tests & weekly ultrasounds were monitoring (ie: amniotic fluid, heart rate, etc) , Dr. Dykes skipped over my questions and began rattling off statistics of still births for women pregnant at my age and that I would have to have an induction on my due date. (If she had checked my records she would have seen that my last pregnancy/ birth was textbook and she actually delivered my baby naturally with no issues just 2 years prior and one day after my due date.) I am not sure why she felt the need to try to scare me and jump to such conclusions when I never even asked for that information.
Patient | December 12, 2017

I have always and will continue to recommend this clinic to everyone that currently does not go here!!
Patient | December 12, 2017

This was my first time seeing a doctor (other appts have been with PAs) at the Women's clinic in Franklin. I was blown away by Dr. Dykes' knowledge and ability to put things into layman's terms. She was professional but friendly and it was one of the best doctor experiences I've ever had. My experience made me thankful I'd found that clinic! Everyone is always friendly and respectful.
Patient | December 7, 2017

Dr. Dykes spent time answering all of my questions, talking about options and giving me thorough information. She's pleasant and speaks in layman's terms and is very down to earth.
Patient | October 30, 2017

Dr. Dykes is simply the best. I have recommended her several times!
