Dr. Park took her time with me at each pregnancy appointment. She was that kind caring side almost like a Midwife. She was on call when I went into labor with my subsequent baby (after a infant loss). She was supportive of my attempt for a VBAC but would give me solid advice and took excellent care of me 100%.
