First off I think its horrible that people get online to bad mouth Eileen Small. I've gone to her for all my woman's health issues and she has been awesome. She really sits and listens to what you have to say as a patient and cares about her patients concerns & issues. Her and her staff are so kind and welcoming and I would not go to any other facility for my health issues. I wish the best for Eileen and her business and hope everything works out to her advantage! To everyone else on here talking 'bad' get a life, don't you have better things to do?

This is to notify everyone that Eileen's hearing will be at Cape Fox August 23 at 9 a.m. Let's all come to support her and show the State how much we care about Eileen and our right to choose our providers outside of the Peace Health monopoly!

I have been a patient of a womans place for years and not long ago while I was there for an appt, I was on my way to the bathroom and overheard Eileen in her office saying and how tired she was of having to deal with these "idiot girls" and how these patients problems are not her problems. My appt was with the new mid wife there and she was very kind to me. But I feel like now everytime I call there for any advice, Eileen is in the background trying to direct the girls what to say to me have them rush me off the phone. I have also been told by ex employees of Eileens that she has always talked bad about her patients behind their backs and said some really horrible things. I have always felt well taken care of a A Woman's Place but after overhearing all the things she has said, I was very hurt and dissappointed, especially because I have always backed her when others were saying bad things about her and her practice. As far as the new mid wife there, she has been great.

I would also like to add that while in Eileen's care I was very satisfied. She did what was always best for me when other's wouldnt even take the time to listen, I am just deeply hurt that she would say such horrible things about people who have trusted and believed in her.

I don't know what "patient" overheard on her way to the bathroom but the only "idiot girls" I remember talking about were with the AG's office. The hearing went well--as much as I could tell. I was out-gunned--the state had 2 lwgal beagles and KGH sent 2 to listen and intimidate, And then there was me with NO lawyer. Yet I still think I did prety good. I sort of remember saying something like that that when I found out the AG had managed to get our closing statement ( which will be done telephonically) changed from Monday to today and then by today she whined in sick and got it postponed yet again til next Tuesday. I won't get a decision til 2 to 3 weeks adter those closing statements are done so I am obviously getting stressed and frustrated at the state's delays. I have been bitching all week--but I assure "patient" that whatever she heard was out of conntext and either about one of my daughters (one of whom is a particular world class idiot) or the state's girls handling my case. My ladies are NOT idiots--if I felt that way I damn sure would NOT be fighting like hell to stay here and care for them. I would say 99% of my patients are more than awesome. Everyone has 1 or 2 patients who are drug seekers or such but even those aren't idiots--they have problems. You heard something out of context--I don't know who you are but I assure youI love all of you unless you are Barb Bigelow or the AG!!!Anyway, I apologize for any misunderstanding and I absolutely care for all of you. And yes, Beth is a sweetie!

Also remember that however much you may like a person who is an EX -employee (and they may be great to you as a friend) that there is usually a REASON they are an EX-employee and they may be a tad biased, Everyone who knows me knows I have a "Texas-mouth". But if I have something to say to or about a patient I'll damn sure say it to their face--not whine in my office!! okay?

Whats happened here is KGH has a monopoly on healthcare in this rock,and they will put you out of busines if you don't play ball with them. If theyre so alltruistic compassionate and caring. Why don't they start their own insurance company and charge all the uninsured the same as the public sector buffoons. I pay 15k a year for my and wifes coverage ,any indian can walk in to KGH and get free care when is the freebies going to stop for them just cause theyre poor poor abused indians the whole healthcare thing makes me sick I have to pay for all the deadbeat indians and I think its high time KGH starts giving healthcare for 200 bukks a month Now I could afford that!!

Some doctors ther are great but ileen is better!!

No, "failure to comply" doesn't "say it all". About half what the paper printed was not correct---but do you think they'd print a correction? NO! The "failure to comply" was because KGH found out that Dr. Tung (remember when she was their OB) and I had agreed on a deal for her to basically consult with etc.When KGH found out they sent her a nasty letter of which I have a copy and they let her go! She wrote a report to the state and Bigelo or one of their other trolls put it up and while she wrote it in March, I didn't get it til like Oct. Obviously I guess I was "out of compliance" in that sense--but it was never because I set out to be. If KGH can run me out of town they have a monopoly and the legal costs are horrendous! What can you do if you don't want to live in a town with a one system health care set-up?(ie KGH?_ Keep coming as A Woman's Place patient. You all know I am a fighter when I am right and my attorney has fled in the Superior Court where I will have a chance (per him). That hearing was a set up deal before it started-- and I cannot believe how far up the hospitals's rear end that Board of Nursing is. The last one was a decent bunch. This one is a group of morons who don't even realize they are being used as pawns.They knew the outcome when they held the hearing. It was a decided fact! But to get it out of that venue gives me a fair chance. You ladies know me--I'm still ME-the same person some of you have known since '98. As long as you keep coming, you have made a statement and I will have income to keep fighting. If not, I will eventually run out of $$ and you will end up with KGH! PERIOD! Love to all. And stop by and say hi--I can't see you as a patient right now but I am there at the office and still love to sit and talk with each of you! OKAY!

Little Bird,
Have you ever been a patient @ A Woman's Place? Experienced, personally, any care received from Eileen or her other provider?
If not, SHUT UP! You cannot judge people based on rumors! The ONLY way to know if you like a provider or not, it to learn for yourself. Everyone has their own experience, so if you had a bad one, then that's you, but she hasn't had her doors open for 10 years because she's a bad person or because one or two people didn't like her. I know from PERSONAL experience that 99.9% of her patients LOVE her and the Clinic. The one's that have left, was likely due to them moving out of town, or because they listen to the one sided bias opinion of the Newpapers or the crappy stuff the comes out of the mouths of employee's @ Ketchikan General Hospital. And I work there, so I CAN say that, because I do know from personal experience what people @ KGH say!!!

If you have read all these posts then you are well informed of all the craziness that A Womans Place and Eileen (and don't forget Herb LOL) have endured. It was always a battle for her and anyone working for her. A Womans Place is currently undergoing changes. One is that they are currently updating their computer systems so they can better meet the needs of their patients. If you are female this is the place to go. even bring your daughter if she is old enough. If you are currently unsatisfied with your doctor Don't hesitate to try another doctor if you want a second opinion. But I can assure that Dr Jen will help you as long as you are willing to help yourself. And Eileen has always talked to me even if she is busy she always got back to me. She isn't practicing yet but is hopefully nearing the end of her lengthy trial. But as I said Dr Jen is a REALLY good doctor. They have also moved to the building in between the Westflight and promech so the carlana address is incorrect. Love you Eileen!

Well now we all can fly South or North for reasonable price healthcare. Having only the darn hospital to care for you and your family is absolutely scary. Break out the piggy bank. We need a Doc in the box in the community. The thought of having to show up to the hospital or its clinic makes me even more sick.

I miss Eileen so much. She's wonderful and caring and I've never been to any Doctor in this town who actually gave a damn. Anyone who talks badly of her has usually never been to see her.

So I had an appointment at what used to be Eileen Smalls clinic and thankfully she no longer was in practice. I hear she's taken a backward dive and has been convicted which is no huge shocker. But what about her husband the biller that robs people in his billing practice? He's the real criminal behind all this, he believes himself very clever and above the rules then talks her into it? So what a sorry pair of people. In spite of the nasty things she says on facebook...she's the convicted felon, actually they both are. In spite of what these kind of people say, everyone around them is NOT always wrong or after them. Very paranoid egotistical and corrupt people.

Hi Jen (ie "Judge It) AWP isn't gone--YOU are gone cuz you dumped your patients, lied about needing time off for a "family emergency" and opened your own practiice in a private residential location--which btw-- is ILLEGAL! Talk about corrupt and egotistical--you should write a book! You are definitely THE expert---and a LIAR to boot--who sure took me in. I really believed in you. I was totally stupid to have believed in you-- and I admit it!! I NEVER give up though--and old Herb is no criminal--he is loud because he is nearly deaf from an injury in Viet Nam. He does expect people to pay their co-pays-- but the crook is YOU! I know one cult I will never feel the same about--it's the one YOU belong to and that allows and even encourages sanctimonious frauds such as yourself to crap on people who never did other than be kind to you! Have a super day. And ladies--as I have said before--those of you who know me, know me. I am still the same person I have always been--but I am not someone with boundless money--so I took a plea. I do not feel ashamed---I did it to END all this--not because I felt I committed anything wrong. It simply became too expensive to continue paying attorneys to try and prove I was innocent. I am sorry that any of you have to be impacted by this--but I still have that surprise coming! And around late August!! Wait and see--and in the meantime--for refills, I suggest Dr Snyder whom I see personally or if you must go to KGH, Andy Pankow is pretty good. I am still fighting the fight for all of my wonderful women friends!

I've heard many things about her, but really who is ever completely happy with health care? I know I thought of going to her for my first pregnancy in ak because I wanted a midwife after having two rare kind of pregnancies sort to say in wa but decided against it because she prescribed meds to patients and in my mind midwives shouldn't do that . It was just a personal preference and nothing against her. Ironically for my three pregnancies in Ketchikan ended up having to take meds during my pregnancy any how. All in all I'm sure everyone can have good and bad experiences with both her and KGH so just go where you are comfortable with
