nurse/assistant and doctor both were super considerate of my medical history and they customized the sequence of appointments for my benefit.
Feb 18, 2021
I completed all the patient info online prior to the appointment but it doesn't quite sync up with their system so I had to complete the physical paperwork at the office. a bit of a time waste.
Feb 17, 2021
everyone from the front desk, the nurse, and Dr. Funkhauser were fantastic.

Feb 6, 2021
wish they had more afternoon/evening hours, so I do not have to take off work for the doctor's appointment
Jan 29, 2021
The online check-in procedure for Covid kept kicking me out and I was not able to do it prior to arrival. The staff asked very detailed questions about this to get a clear understanding of the issue which I appreciated.
Jan 29, 2021
The answer to question 1 is because of the delayed sign-in process online. The speed of your staff was very good!
Jan 29, 2021
the appointment felt very rushed

Jan 11, 2021
I have been having issues with my skin during my second trimester which I have messaged the provider about multiple times. I brought it up at the appointment and the provider seemed unaware of this issue.
Jan 10, 2021
I had a great experience at my first appointment
Jan 9, 2021
Everyone was so kind and welcoming!
Jan 9, 2021
Ms. Tonya was awesome! She made us feel so comfortable and was very knowledgeable and helpful. Our ultrasound technician was also fabulous, she was so enthusiastic and clearly loves what she does. She made the ultrasound a really great experience.
Jan 9, 2021
We are so happy to have Dr. Funkhauser as our Obstetrician! She was so helpful in answering all of our questions while being very kind. My exam was so easy and I felt completely comfortable the whole time. Thank you Dr. Funkhauser!
Dec 14, 2020
the front desk staff are honestly the sweetest ladies
Dec 14, 2020
all in all it felt a little rushed through, which is fine for me right now. but something to keep in mind if/when I get pregnant. I want to sit down and really talk through all my options and concerns for major stuff like that
Dec 10, 2020
It was a great experience.
Dec 10, 2020
I am very happy with Dr. Funkhauser she was wonderful.

Dr. Funkhauser was awesome!
Nov 15, 2020
Excellent experience. From arrival to leaving was less than 30 minutes, and all my questions were answered.
Nov 10, 2020
The phone check-in process that is done pre-visit never works. Even if I complete it in full prior to my visit, the women at the front desk tell me it is not complete so I have to redo the whole thing every time. I was frustrated this time and she told me they're having issues with it.
Nov 10, 2020
Dr. Funkhouser is very good!
Nov 4, 2020

Nov 1, 2020
Dr. Funkhauser is AMAZING! she remembers personal details about my life and is always interested to hear how I'm doing in school. she's so bubbly and personable and is always willing to listen throughly to my concerns.
Nov 1, 2020
I frequently refer friends to the practice because I feel I've received the best care here in the entire Charleston area.
Nov 1, 2020
I was in and out the entire process was only about a half hour.

Oct 6, 2020
I love my experience here. I recommend you guys to all my friends and family. From the ladies working the front desk, to the nurses, PAs and Dr. Funkhauser, everyone has been very friendly and made my annual less painful than it normally is!
Oct 6, 2020
My nurse was great. I spat out an earful and she took great notes because once Dr. Funkhauser came in she just reiterated what I said.
Oct 6, 2020
I LOVE DR. FUNKHAUSER. I no longer have health insurance and would rather self pay than to go to anyone else! She is so kind, listens to my concerns, and makes my paps painless. I recommend her to all my friends!
Oct 6, 2020
Anytime doctors come up in conversation I recommend Dr. Funkhauser. East Cooper has an amazing team and I wouldn't want to go anywhere else
Oct 6, 2020
Lakeisha called me and let me know what to expect with wait times and what the new covid-19 protocol is. I felt like everything was easy and safely done.
Oct 6, 2020
Dr. Funkhouser is a great doctor! She always answers my questions and she has great bedside manner!
Oct 2, 2020
LOVE THE STAFF ALREADY
Oct 2, 2020

Sep 25, 2020
I enjoyed the staff!
Sep 25, 2020
I loved Dr. Funkhauser's personality, she talked to us liked we were people and not just an item on her To-Do list.
Sep 25, 2020
friendly
Sep 25, 2020
would like to fill forms out electronically before
Sep 20, 2020
The DR did not tell me anything about what would happen after the procedure.
Sep 7, 2020
everyone is so nice and helpful
Aug 30, 2020
the staff are all so friendly, I did feel that the appointment was overall a little rushed. I would have like more consultative time I was in an out of both appointments scheduled super fast.

Aug 9, 2020
everyone was SUPER friendly and pleasant
Aug 9, 2020
nurse communicated with dr who communicated with ultrasound tech no one skipped a beat
Aug 9, 2020
I was given paper forms to fill out for medical history when I arrived for my appt but I had already completed the medical history on the patient portal as I was asked to do prior to the appt. The information my Dr reviewed was from the paper forms rather that the portal. I wish I would have only had to fill out the information once in the method that the Dr intended to use. I was more thorough in my portal responses and felt rushed through the paper forms, so I would have preferred to have my original response reviewed by the Dr.
Aug 4, 2020
All staff we're very friendly and helpful!
Jul 29, 2020
No complaints!
Jul 29, 2020
My only complaint is that it always feels very rushed, like she can't get to the next patient fast enough. Sometimes it's hard to get a word in when she's moving towards wrapping the conversation up and I still have things I'd like to discuss.
Jul 28, 2020
Evon at the front desk is awesome!! She is so kind and friendly and always remembers my name. The rest of the front desk staff is great too, I just usually end up talking to her.
Jul 26, 2020
I wish I could read my weight off the scale to the nurse rather than having her stand so close to me.
Jul 26, 2020
I feel she is hard to get information out of regarding pregnancy, Covid, expectations, etc. It is expected every patient reads info on pregnancy rather than be told about our own. I spend quality with patients to make sure they are prepared and understand their risks; hoping another provider will meet these expectations.
Jul 24, 2020
everyone was so nice!! I was in and out in a timely matter and the whole staff was so welcoming!!
Jul 18, 2020
dr. funkhauser is the best
Jul 7, 2020
The front desk staff, my Dr, nurse, sonographer and the NP i spoke with were very nice and let me ask all the questions without making me feel rushed.

Jun 8, 2020
The nurse was very friendly and she helped me feel more comfortable since it was my first time there.
Jun 8, 2020

Jun 6, 2020
Everyone was very pleasant, professional and courteous.
Jun 6, 2020
Dr. Funkhauser was very pleasant, compassionate, and knowledgeable. I was never made to feel rushed and felt comfortable asking questions. I'm new to the area and found this practice online. I was so relieved and happy that I had such a wonderful experience!
Jun 6, 2020
Facility was immaculate.
Jun 6, 2020

Jun 5, 2020
My physician made me feel very comfortable the whole time. She was very upbeat, comforting, and was guided me through everything she was doing.
Jun 5, 2020
I did recommend East Cooper to a friend because I had a really great experience.
May 30, 2020
Felt like she was rushed and I felt like I was wasting her time if I asked questions.
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 19, 2020
everything is excellent
May 19, 2020

all good, very professional and excellent
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 at ease the the nurse was not rushing me, and she made me feel comfortable during my situation
Apr 24, 2020
