      She has delivered all 3 of my children and will be delivering #4 this month. She is so caring and personable. She always makes me feel comfortable and she remembers the names of my husband and our children and asks about them at every visit. I know she has my best interest in mind and cares about my well being. I trust her 100%.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
