I'm 61 years old and have seen quite a few GYNs in my years. She's kind, friendly, compassionate, knowledgeable, and thorough. She saw me in her office before and after my exam.

She genuinely seems to care for her patients and has even called to personally check on me in the late evenings more than once when anything was going on just to be sure that I was okay. I trust her judgement more than any other doctor I've had for anything in years. I highly recommend her.

Horrible, ignored blood clot symptoms during pregnancy and after she did c-section. Sent home with pulmonary embolism. Took baby early though for no apparent reason. She did like the good insurance for her and her doctor buddies. Not interested in patient care.
