I've been to different OB's for irregular and painful menses/infertility and thyroid issues and none have ever had a specific plan for me like she does. I have gone through 2 surgeries with her as well and she has given me so much hope that soon I will become a mother. She answers all my questions and educates me on things I didn't know. Overall she is amazing!!!!

I came to see the doctor today as a new patient. I wasn't told I will never meet or be seen by the doctor rather by a PA or nurse. A little swab for Pap smear @ a little breast massage & my visit as a new patient was over. I have serious concern having lost a sister to ovarian cancer. Where is the doctor to listen & answer questions? You just lost a future patient.
