SHC Patient, Dec 2018

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 clearly wanted to make sure I was comfortable and well informed both during and after my appointment.

SHC Patient, May 2018

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.

I love Dr. Rothstein. She is thorough and awesome.

SHC Patient, Jun 2017

Dr. Rothstein and her staff are exceptional!!

SHC Patient, Jun 2017

Probably the kindest, most caring and well-informed OB/GYN I have ever been examined/treated by. Great communicator.

SHC Patient, May 2017

Dr Rothstein is extraordinarily gifted. she spends so much time to answer questions and to discuss any issues.

SHC Patient, May 2017

I really enjoyed my prenatal appointments with Dr Rothstein. She is informed and engaged, but also quick and doesn't waste your time.

SHC Patient, May 2017

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!

SHC Patient, Apr 2017

Dr. Rothstein is the best GYN I have ever had. That is why I keep coming back to her clinic.

SHC Patient, Apr 2017

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.

SHC Patient, Apr 2017

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.

SHC Patient, Apr 2017

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.

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

I trust the doctor why I keep coming back.

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

Dr. Rothstein is amazing. She is very caring and compassionate and always makes me feel like my health is important to her. Love her!!

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

Dr. Rothstein is the first physician to take the time to thoroughly explain my condition. Thank you!

SHC Patient, Feb 2017

She is wonderful.

SHC Patient, Feb 2017

Dr. Rothstein is the kind of doctor everyone hopes to have. That is why I travel to see her.

SHC Patient, Feb 2017

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.

SHC Patient, Feb 2017

Experience I had was beyond my expectations - Dr. Carrie Rothstein is an excellent physician!

SHC Patient, Jan 2017

Dr. Rothstein is the BEST!!

SHC Patient, Jan 2017

SHC Patient, Jan 2017

wonderful physician!

SHC Patient, Oct 2016

Dr. Rothstien is wonderful! She is patient with questions, makes time to explain clearly, and never seems to rush you. She makes you feel like you are a person not a number and that she cares about you. She exhibits excellent knowledge but also gentleness and empathy.

SHC Patient, Sep 2016

She has been hands down the best doctor I (and my husband) have ever had.

SHC Patient, Sep 2016

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.

SHC Patient, Sep 2016

Dr Rothstein is amazing, I'm so glad I have her as my OB.

SHC Patient, May 2016

I have referred a number of friends to Dr. Rothstein. She is one of the best doctors I've had and I trust her to the point that I travel from LA to see her. (I recently moved.)

SHC Patient, May 2016

Dr. Rothstein is wonderful and I would recommend her with my highest possible praise.

SHC Patient, Apr 2016

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.

SHC Patient, Apr 2016

I absolutely love Dr. Rothstein. She has a wonderful beside manner and is an excellent doctor.

SHC Patient, Apr 2016

absolutely the best care any patient could expect or receive

SHC Patient, Apr 2016

Dr. Rothstein is the absolute best. She spends tons of time with me, and even encourages me in my life circumstances, not just physical health.

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

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.

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

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.

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

DR. ROTHSTEIN IS AN INCREDIBLY SMART, COMPASSIONATE, COMPETENT, PATIENT AND ATTENTIVE OB/GYN.

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

Dr. Rothstein is the best OB/GYN I have ever had. And her staff is great also.

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

Dr. Rothstein is awesome. Professional, nice, approachable.

SHC Patient, Feb 2016

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.

SHC Patient, Feb 2016

Very good!

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

I had an excellent experience and will definitely be returning.

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

Worked together with me to make decisions

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

Dr Rothstein is excellent but it is difficult to recommend her to others only because of the very long wait times to see her.

SHC Patient, Oct 2015

Dr. Rothstein was more personable & engaged than the last time we met.

SHC Patient, Oct 2015

Dr. Rothstein is very competent and thorough, but she doesn't have a great personal connection to patients.

SHC Patient, Aug 2015

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.
