From the moment she delivered my 3rd baby and through my postpartum care I knew that No other doctor would ever give me so much care, assurance and professional advice. I recently had a surgery ans she did wonderful throughout the whole process. I love her small practice and the fact that she takes time to get to know her patients and their medical histories.
