May 29, 2020
due to covid my appointment was rescheduled twice and pushed back two months. I realize this isnt really your fault but it was annoying. stupid covid.
May 29, 2020
The front desk staff really went above and beyond to figure out my insurance, which is very confusing. They got it straightened out though.
May 24, 2020
I always hate going to the OBGYN and Dr. Funkhauser made me feel so comfortable and relaxed! She listened to everything I said with care and made it an overall great experience.
May 21, 2020
The visit was too quick and she talked so fast that I didn't even get to ask any questions. She was in the room, talked fast about the ultrasound results, then the visit was over. I didn't get a real explanation of why my problem was happening.

May 17, 2020
lovely office! I work in healthcare so it's always refreshing to see my fellow healthcare professionals get it right! From start to finish they were precise, concise, but always friendly. This is especially important during such an unprecedented pandemic. I even forgot my insurance card (rookie move) and they did not make me feel like a complete idiot or huff and puff at my mistake. nothing but praises from the front desk to the provider. I hope this gives them the motivation to continue to put that same energy forward each day.
May 12, 2020

I was thrilled with the level of organization and professionalism in this office. The waiting room was comfortable to wait in, the short amount of time I was in there. Everyone I interacted with was nicer than the next. Just a real pleasure.
Jan 8, 2020
I was very impressed with her delivery. She allowed me to be in the drivers seat with some things I wanted for myself, didn't push your intelligence on me at any point and made me feel like she trusted that I know what's good for my body. We discussed options and paths for the future that are concerning and I felt that my best interest was at the forefront the entire time.
Jan 8, 2020
I was mostly shocked about how little I waited once I was in the doctor's office. The Attending Nurse did her schpeel, then told me the doctor would be right in and she was. I especially like that the doctor met and talked withe me and get to know me before we got to the intimate parts of these types of appointments. Really felt like a human experience. Then when she left so I could disrobe, she came back promptly. I truly didn't have to wait through any transition, which is something I have never experienced across 4 states.
Jan 8, 2020
Wendy is a gem. She was so personable and hilarious, she put me right at ease, like grabbing drinks with a good girlfriend. I would hope to interact with her every time I am there!
Jan 8, 2020
I will definitely recommend this practice and this doctor to many!

I waited a long time to get back to an exam room (probable 30-45min) but once I was back the office was very efficient and moved quick.

*Anna is the best!
Dec 10, 2019
*Anna & *Dr. Funkhauser are excellent. Whoever called me with results was not excellent - no one should get scary results from someone who has no answers.

Google listing is pulling in a phone number for MUSC's women's clinic, not East Cooper. I also had an apt. scheduled for 8:30 am and tried to call ahead as I needed to reschedule day of but was not able to leave a message and had to call back after 8:30.
