Review for Dr. Nunnery

I really like this doctor he is really nice and always tells me everything I need to know. I just don’t like how he schedules to see me every month and I’m a high risk pregnancy patient. And I don’t like that he doesn’t preform ultrasounds on me and I can never get to take a picture to my boyfriend
