    felt very taken care of.

    Experienced on Apr 22, 2020

    The doctor was extremely knowledgeable, and although some of the things we discussed about my health were concerning I feel completely confident that the doctor knows what is going on and her plan can help me.

    Experienced on Mar 23, 2020

    Only thing I would ask to improve is getting that 1st appt. & the wait time, once getting to the "office."

    Experienced on Mar 01, 2020

    I took several college science classes, so I didn't have a problem understanding most of the things she described (although I did have to ask a few things). My husband is not a native English speaker, and didn't want to appear stupid, but he really had no clue what she was talking about most of the time. It might be helpful to put some of the complicated scientific terms into layman's terms for patients. For instance instead of saying "your fetus could have cranial hemorrhaging" maybe try "your unborn baby might have bleeding in the brain."

    I really loved meeting with Dr. Dion-Townsend. She is my favorite provider at the clinic. She is so good at explaining things, very personable and makes me feel comfortable.

    Experienced on Jan 29, 2020

    The doctor was so well informed and I truly understood why and what we were looking for. All around great visit.

    Experienced on Jan 29, 2020

    For what they do I would ABSOLUTELY recommend the doctor and tech. Brought me so much ease to a situation I wasn't sure of and scared.

    Experienced on Dec 04, 2019

    Very good. She explained things very well so that I was able to understand and make appropriate decisions.

    Experienced on Dec 04, 2019

    Very good. The only thing was the wait was a little long, but not terrible.

    Thank you for your kindness and professionalism! Everyone was so great.

    Donna was great - She made me feel like my baby and I were important and made sure we were taken care of.

    Experienced on Sep 30, 2019

    I definitely recommend Intermountain Health Center because the doctors have experience.

    Experienced on Aug 23, 2019

    I felt the DR was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful when we were discussing the reason I was there. I didn't appreciate feeling chastised for choosing to not do the genetic testing or having my normal doctor tell me not do the glucose test. I felt we spent more time discussing other potential problems than the reason I was there.

    Experienced on Aug 07, 2019

    She was interested in hearing our concerns, addressed each one, answered our questions and provided treatment options.

    Experienced on Aug 07, 2019

    Everyone we came in contact with was courteous, asked for my history and answered any questions we had.
