Patient Comments (1)
in Needham, MA |
I have been going to Women Well for 8 years. I was referred by my Social Worker at age 50 by Children's Hospital before my son, age 19 would undergo a heart transplant. I have never been disappointed with my care and have greatly benefitted from Organic Hormone Support that I recommend to everyone. I go to the group but I don't have major medical problems so I don't see Dr. Schaak regularly but I have met with her a few times and she is amazing-so informative, so smart, so in touch, an honor.
