    Overall everything went well, just didn't get my Urinalysis done at this visit. Everyone was very helpful and nice
    NP, Richsell is very knowledgeable and professional. She answered all of my questions thoroughly and explained to me what I didn't understand.
    I had a really great experience with Richshell - she was knowledgeable and compassionate, and was open to listening to our concerns. She was very good with my daughter and I definitely will be seeing her the many years to come.
    I was very pleased with the services provided by Dr. Richshell Smith and the staff at the OBGYN clinic at the Baton Rouge General at Bluebonnet. They were very patient and thorough. Dr. Richshell Smith had great bed side manner, I would recommend her to all of my family, friends, co workers. She's very relatable. Very knowledgeable. She was able to listen to my input and give me hers as well, and I'm glad that I have found a provider that I plan on sticking with.
    The doctor was really nice but I felt like all my concerns weren't addressed and it was like a rush to get me out of the office and on my way. I'm really disappointed as I have been struggling to get pregnant for a year and I didn't even get examed
