    honestly the best experience with a Doctor's office I've ever had. the whole staff was amazing and I really felt taken care of. Dr. Donna was incredible. she listened to everything I asked and took her time explaining everything to me. she is a gem. truly.

    The doctor was awesome! She spent so much time me explained everything she was doing/seeing and resolved all my concerns. Thank you!

    I felt she didn't have all of my pre pregnancy history. I felt a little nervous to find out that I had chronic hypertension when I never had hypertension till pregnancy. otherwise she was thorough explained things like ripping off a band aide. she was real, and did not beat around the bush. she gave us signs to look for, and she went out of her way to give me a copy of a peer reviewed journal article.

    I feel she will monitor myself and my baby very well the next few months. I am confident that everything will work out the way it needs to as long as I am being monitored and doing my part as a patient.

    Dr. Dizon-Townsend did a thorough examination of my baby in utero. She listened to my questions and responded in a way that I easily understood.

    It was a very long appointment with the wait time. I waited for at least a half hour before getting back to an exam room. Once in the room my wait time was significantly less.

    it was productive and well informative

    felt rushed though my non stress for my baby

    I was surprised and impressed that she actually took the time to read my medical file before seeing me. It made me feel like she really cared about my medical condition rather than a file number.

    My husband & I were thrilled to have met Dr. Dixon-Townson & her team. Everyone was so friendly and well informed. We left the office feeling so educated about questions we had regarding our first pregnancy.

    After ultrasound tech left we sat in the exam room for 40 minutes waiting for the doctor to come in. She was quick and laid out all possible conditions that could present in my current condition ( seeming to be intelligent/knowledgeable with those conditions) but left we feeling less hopeful when not one of those conditions had signs of being present currently with me expect that I am expecting twins.

    I loved the provider, she's amazing.

    The dr. came in and told me that she didn't know anything about my medication & told me I needed to see someone else (after being referred to her by an OB/GYN & waiting over an hour to see her.) She then wrote in my chart inaccurate info. I think she confused me w/someone else. She called my OB and gave her recommendations, even though she dismissed me in person.

    Doctor Dizon-Townsend was wonderful! When she first walked in she let me know we had actually met before. Our first pregnancy ended in stillbirth and after it had been confirmed with the OB that there was no heartbeat they sent us down to have an ultrasound done with MFM. That morning was such a blur that I don't remember much, but Dr. Dizon-Townsend let me know that she remembered me. It was such a tender mercy. The morning I met with her [...] I was feeling pretty anxious, but knowing that she had my best interest at heart made me feel so good and more calm.

    Dr. Townson is fantastic! She goes above and beyond in helping calm my concerns! I've received many personal calls from her & I fully trust her in everything! She's just an amazing person & I feel so grateful that she cares about me and our baby!

    She has gone above and beyond to make sure I am at ease during this pregnancy. Intermountain is LUCKY to have her.

    I loved everything about my experience there. Everyone was nice and friendly and it was wonderful. It didn't feel like a normal first time doctor visit. They were friendly, courteous and cared about what I had to say.

    Experienced on Nov 27, 2017

    She was very helpful, answered all my questions, and took the time to make sure I understood everything. She also looked into problems that I have been concerned about my entire pregnancy and no one else would address and I really appreciated that. I finally feel at peace.
