She was so patient and I never felt judged ever. She walked me through my birth plan and when it didn’t go that way, she had plan B and C and D ready. If I were having more kids- she’s the one I pick!! She’s soft spoken, but perfect with direction. Best energy I could’ve had in the room!!!

Not prepared to manage complex cases. Poor bedside manner. Young doctor without much real world experience. I’m sure he’s fine for basic issues but he’s not capable of handling things outside of that. Needs to better his communication skills.
