Dr. Rothstein is kind and thoughtful, and an excellent doctor. Her step by step thoroughness in describing everything as it happens not only helped me get through the procedure but also avoided a potential issue because I was able to tell them to change anesthetic at the literal last moment.

Dr. Rothstein is an excellent, caring physician.
very helpful
She seems to run late pretty consistently.
Dr. Rothstein is great what I dislike it's the delay
I like Dr. Rothstein very much, but in my several years of seeing her and multiple visits, I have never had the visit on the originally scheduled date and time. There is always a rescheduling or delay, which plays havoc with my calendar. I keep thinking about whether to change doctors, but I do like her personally and she knows my body well now.
Dr Rothstein is great! I always feel like she listens to my concerns and gives thoughtful, honest answers. She also helps put things in perspective, which I really appreciate.
This was my first visit to GYN to see Dr. Rothstein. She was caring, thoughtful, diligent and professional. She took the time to explain the ultrasound and she was patient to listen and answered my questions. She gets five stars for excellence!
Dr. Rothstein is awesome!
She is excellent
This was such a positive experience for me. The provider listened to my questions and concerns, presented different contraceptive options, and helped me make an informed choice. She also carefully talked me through the placement procedure and was positive and encouraging. It was honestly one of the best medical experiences I have had, despite the physical pain of the IUD insertion process.
Dr. Rothstein is thorough in her examination and clearly very experienced. However, a simple 'sorry for being 50 mins late' would have helped. I understand that some patients need more time. Informing me of the delays would have been a first step. Asking if I wanted to reschedule would have been the next. I work, so I chose an appointment close to 'lunch time. If she is running behind. Have the front desk tell me that then give me a new slot within 2 days NOT 2 weeks!!
Dr. Rothstein is always very thorough and patient with her detail explanations. She made sure that you understood what she was convey and she has answered all your questions. I never felt that I was rushed through an appointment. Which was very important for me.
Dr. Rothstein was attentive, helpful, and friendly. I enjoyed being her patient.
I really appreciate how Dr Rothstein goes over and explains issues and options. This continues from last time
I already have recommended her to others who have signed us as patients.
i really like the care provider but I have always had to wait at least 40 min after my scheduled appointment to see the doctor. wait times are so bad!
Dr.Rothstein is exceptional. She is very caring and patient and has excellent bedside manner. Even patients who are extremely anxious feel reassured by her skills, ability to calmly communicate and very obvious caring/kindness. She is wonderful!
Dr. Rothstein is extremely caring and wonderful about explaining medical issues.
Wonderful care
Dr. Rothstein is knowledgeable, personable, and incredibly professional. I can't recommend her enough!
Although the doctor was attentive and helpful, I wouldn't recommend this practice to anyone based on the terrible clinic delays.
Dr. is excellent but would not recommend the practice due to consistently terrible wait times.
I like Dr. Rothstein a lot, but in the last six months, all three of my scheduled visits had to be rescheduled last-minute because she was held up. By the third time, this became very annoying.
Dr. Rothstein is very helpful, skilled, compassionate, and empathetic.

Dr Rothstein was running a bit behind schedule (an emergency ) but she made sure to stay past the normal clinic time, was thorough and very detailed about all the matters at hand.

Dr. Carrie Rohstein is warm, knowledgeable, and professional. She's a wonderful person.
I LOVE Dr Rothstein!
Dr Rothstein is wonderful!
The lateness, when I had an appointment first thing in the morning, was unacceptable and inconsiderate.
Having to wait for more than an hour is not ok except in cases of emergency. No emergency was mentioned.
She's great!
if appointments are to be cancelled they should give ample time to patients and not call less than 30 minutes before.
Wait time in exam room a bit long.
She is the best doctor I've ever had. She is caring, knowledgeable, empathetic, kind, clear, helpful, and completely present. I wish all my doctors were like her.
very good and very patient to listen what I asked.
LOVE LOVE LOVE Dr Rothstein. I am so glad I chose her as my OB. she is intelligent, up to date on her knowledge, detail oriented, warm, patient, and an amazing physician who works so hard for her patients.
she hasn't emailed me consult info as promised
love all the doctors and nurses in this practice, but I have to spend an extensive amount of time waiting almost every visit.
Dr. Rothstein talked me through every step as she performed the procedure (colonoscopy). She was professional yet friendly. It could not have been handled better.
First visit with Dr. Rothstein. Don't know her well enought to recommend her to others. First impression was good!
I love Dr. Rothstein! She addressed all my concerns, makes me feel like she was all day to listen.

Dr. Rothstein has been my OBGYN for 20 years. She has been my doctor for 2 surgeries. She is an outstanding doctor.
I really appreciated the amount of time Dr. Rothstein spent with me. I didn't feel rushed at all, and she made me feel comfortable asking questions. She also made me feel at ease during my appointment and gave lots of explanation (what she would be doing, about medications, side effects, etc.). She clearly wanted to make sure I was comfortable and well informed both during and after my appointment.
Doctor Rothstein is fantastic. At last I am lucky enough to have a doctor who truly cares about me. She listens, and then gives great recomendations.

Probably the kindest, most caring and well-informed OB/GYN I have ever been examined/treated by. Great communicator.
Dr Rothstein is extraordinarily gifted. she spends so much time to answer questions and to discuss any issues.
I really enjoyed my prenatal appointments with Dr Rothstein. She is informed and engaged, but also quick and doesn't waste your time.
Dr. Rothstein has been my GYN for almost 3 years now. After a very bad experience with the GYN @Stanford, I was lucky enough to find her and she very successfully treated my previous medical issue. For this annual visit, I love that she is very hands-on (went through my medical Hx with me, updated chart herself) and EXTREMELY thorough in everything (discussion/review of past issue that was treated, explanation of what she is doing, treatment/care). She has a great bedside manner and remembered what we had discussed before. I will be a very loyal patient!
Dr. Rothstein is the best GYN I have ever had. That is why I keep coming back to her clinic.
Dr. Rothstein was rushed and seemed impatient with my questions. She did answer them all, but she definitely was faster in her work than during our first visit.
This was my first visit with Dr. Rothstein, she had a great bedside manner and very easy to talk to and I felt she listened. I will continue to see her.
She was extremely thorough and spent close to an hour with me. I was very appreciative of her time and thoroughness. It gave me a better understanding of why she was running so late. (and my appointment time was late morning). Still, the fact that she was running late should have been communicated to us before we even came into the doctors office, not in the office past the scheduled time.
I trust the doctor why I keep coming back.
Dr. Rothstein is amazing. She is very caring and compassionate and always makes me feel like my health is important to her. Love her!!
Dr. Rothstein is the first physician to take the time to thoroughly explain my condition. Thank you!
She is wonderful.
The doctor didn't make calls to clarify my test results until I got there, which made me waiting for more than 30 minutes to a doctor visit that lasted less than 15 minutes. I would expect my doctor to be better prepared for her patients. The nurse never followed up with me to set up a follow up appointment either. I am planning to get a new doctor.
Dr. Rothstein is the kind of doctor everyone hopes to have. That is why I travel to see her.
Experience I had was beyond my expectations - Dr. Carrie Rothstein is an excellent physician!
Dr. Rothstein is the BEST!!

She has been hands down the best doctor I (and my husband) have ever had.
After giving birth my son was in the NICU. Dr. Rothstein called me every day to check on both of us even though she did not end up delivering him.
Dr Rothstein is amazing, I'm so glad I have her as my OB.
Dr. Rothstein is empathetic, compassionate, thoughtful, knowledgeable, skillful and helpful. She's the best GYN I've ever had. She took time to answer my questions and didn't make me feel stupid for asking them. She even drew me a picture to better explain the problem and a possible solution.

Dr. Rothstein is wonderful and I would recommend her with my highest possible praise.
Dr. Rothstein is a capable practitioner who was able to answer my questions about the problem the brought m there. She seemed genuinely concerned about how I was doing and provided the kind of comprehensive office visit that seems rare lately, but very much appreciated- an interest in how I was doing as a whole person and how she could help, rather than as a body system or a series of computer entries.
I absolutely love Dr. Rothstein. She has a wonderful beside manner and is an excellent doctor.

Dr. Rothstein is great and I never feel rushed I get that she gives each patient this attention so perhaps space appointments out more to avoid delays.
I understand my doctor was late, but I just know that she is giving her patients the attention and care. Every patient is different and requires more time than others. She had never made me feel rushed. So I don't mind waiting for Dr. Rothstein.
Dr. Rothstein is the best OB/GYN I have ever had. And her staff is great also.
Dr. Rothstein is awesome. Professional, nice, approachable.
Dr. Rothstein has exceeded all of our expectations before, during, and after the birth of our son. We can't say thank you enough for the quality of the care we have received and the compassion and empathy with which it was provided. I would highly recommend her to anyone having a baby.
Very good!
I had an excellent experience and will definitely be returning.

Dr. Rothstein is very competent and thorough, but she doesn't have a great personal connection to patients.
this was my first visit to Dr. Rothstein because I am changing my mammogram visits to Menlo Clinic from a private provider. Dr. Rothstein got me an immediate appointment with the radiologist and everything was completed within the hour. She had access to all of my health history through the Menlo Clinic website and she had read all of it before we met for the first time. It was a very good visit.
I have been coming to Menlo Medical for over 13 years and all of my doctors have great!
