Guthrie Patient: January 2020
*Dr. Reese is wonderful & very nice.
Guthrie Patient: January 2020
This provider made me feel as though I was an inconvenience to him. He appeared insensitive. He made me feel very uncomfortable. I will not continue treatment with this provider.
Guthrie Patient: November 2019
There was very little discussion and no warning as to what was entailed (risks, pain, success rate) with an office uterine biopsy, which failed to be completed. Dr did not ask one question about my history or my symptoms - he walked into the room and said he was doing a biopsy. Answers to my questions were vague and noncommittal. I left very upset and will not see this doctor again.
Guthrie Patient: October 2019
provider is too busy
Guthrie Patient: April 2019
Dr. Rees listens to my medical history and questions and responds clearly. He is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, respectful, and careful. I appreciate him being my doctor for so many years!
Guthrie Patient: April 2019
I have seen Dr. Rees for many years and my level of trust in him is high and unwavering. I hope he stays in practice many more years so we can continue this doctor/patient relationship long into the future. I am very very comfortable with him which I feel is rare for someone to say about their ob-gyn. I recommend him all the time.
Guthrie Patient: April 2019
Dr. Rees was the first OB that I saw for my pregnancy, and he ended up delivering my little boy. it was a great experience, he made the whole thing wonderful and I would recommend him to anyone!
Guthrie Patient: April 2019
When asked about fetal lung development, he said he did not know and was very indifferent to our concern about the effects of medication on that development.
Guthrie Patient: March 2019
very rude and disrespectful. I went in to get on birth control and dr. Rees declines my request
Guthrie Patient: February 2019
I love Dr. Rees and have been seeing him for many years. I am very very happy he has been the provider helping me now have my 2nd child. I have recommended him to others and speak very highly of him. He is extremely knowledgeable and is never at a loss for words. He certainly knows his profession and I trust him literally with the life of my child.
