I began seeing Dr. Straughn while experiencing an early miscarriage. I knew from the first visit how amazing she was. We experienced two losses after that and Dr. Straughn supported and provided me with resources to continue trying. She has always felt like more of a friend than my doctor. We welcomed our daughter in March 2021 and it’s because of her that she’s here safely! She was so thorough my entire pregnancy. If you are searching for a doctor then look no further! She is one of the most amazing and loving people I’ve ever been around.

I have been seeing Dr. Straughn for many years now. She is nothing shy of amazing. She cares about her patients. I have had 2 miscarriages and she has been wonderful through it all. I could say so much about her. She is the best OBGYN. I absolutely love her. I would recommend her to anyone.

I had a terrible experience at another practice during the labor and delivery of my first child. I called a doula and she recommended Dr. Straughn. That was the best thing to happen to me for my second pregnancy. I must have repeated my fears and prior experience at every single visit. Dr. Straughn listened and made me feel heard and kept me informed. I went into early labor around 32 weeks and was given steroids when it looked like baby was coming around 34 weeks. She kept every doctor informed about my situation. She monitored me and comforted me when she realized I was panicking. In the end, Dr. Routman delivered my baby but I felt so comfortable because of the care I had received from Dr. Straughn. She gave me confidence in the staff and the gumption to speak up if something didn’t feel right. I have completed my family but I would never hesitate to recommend Dr. Straughn to someone else. She is incredible.

Kind, compassionate, energetic, smart and the labor and delivery nurses love her too (when the nurses love a doctor it really says a lot!). I don’t ever want to use a different doctor. I can’t say enough good things about having Dr Straughn as a doctor (through 3 pregnancies and beyond).

I switched to Dr. Straughn for my third pregnancy (second unmedicated delivery) and had a wonderful experience! She is very friendly, personable, and allowed me to make my own decisions about my pregnancy and birth plans - educating me along the way when needed.
