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.

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!!
Patient | July 28, 2016

excellent medical knowledge however very poor bedside manner. No personal interaction at all. I just had a baby, no questions about how I or the baby were doing. Straight to business but gynecology/obstetrics is all about personal stuff as is most areas of medicine. please don't treat patients as if a business transaction is taking place.
Patient | July 2, 2016

She took good care of me.
Patient | June 14, 2016

the best!!
Patient | May 22, 2016

I have been going to Dr. Dykes for a few years now and she is by far the best one I've had. She not only talks about my health, but inquires about my family, my work and other non-medical interests. I feel that she is not just interested in me as a patient, but as a person.
Patient | February 15, 2016

Dr. Dykes addressed all my concerns and answered them thoroughly. She took the time to make sure I had answers to all my questions. She was very honest, and straightforward.
Patient | February 15, 2016

I love Dr. Dykes I would (and have!) recommended her!
Patient | January 13, 2016

I expressed my concerns to her, and felt that she completely disregarded my concerns. I told her I did not want to take medicine if I could help it during this pregnancy and she did not respect my decision at all, kept pressing me to take medication.
Patient | January 11, 2016

I found Dr. Dykes to be argumentative & condescending. She refused to discuss further testing cause of health concern and I had to follow-up elsewhere for help. I will NOT return to see her.
