Really a great doctor! My family doctor referred me to her because I had a large cyst on my ovary. I was afraid that I had cancer, terrified actually.. Dr.Pfaffenbach was kind, professional and reassuring. We discussed surgery, she was very thorough with her explanations and really made me feel at ease. Surgery went very very well! I had outstanding care and a great recovery. Dr Pfaffenbach was awesome and made me feel very comfortable and well cared for! I highly recommend her!

I love Dr. Pfaffenbach! She followed me for my first pregnancy this past year and I had a great experience. She was very kind and reassuring, and certainly seemed like she always provided the best care possible. My delivery went smoothly, but when I had a small complication she handled it no problem. I will definitely stay with her for any future pregnancies or gyn stuff! Thanks Dr. Pfaffenbach!

Dr. Pfaffenbach was my OB for my second pregnancy. My friend recommended switching to her because I wasn't happy with my OB from a different group during my first pregnancy. I'm really glad I did- Dr. Pfaffenbach was awesome! She was very professional and really took great care of me. I will definitely recommend her to others!

I love Dr. Pfaffenbach! She's one of the best doctors I've ever had. She has delivered both of my kids and I am SO glad she was there for both deliveries. A very kind, compassionate doctor who really listens to her patients and goes above and beyond to make sure they receive the best care!
