Dr. H saved my marriage due to horrible pre-manopasual symptoms. She knew exactly what I was going through, ordered blood test and the prescribed compounding HRT. Wow, does she talk fast but I feel great now! I waited 7 weeks to see her, because a friend highly recommended her. So glad I did.

Having been an irregular patient since 2014, I've been able to see her a half dozen times. Most times, she is rushed, doesn't explain herself or test results in detail. Gives short, curt answers which leaves you with more questions. She brushes you off and speaks down to you, instead of explaining. She is all about the upsell of new treatments that are unproven and very costly. I don't get the feeling she honestly cares about her patients, that she is money driven. I found a much better Dr.

Dr. H is very affable and intelligent, however, she talks way too fast and doesn't clarify what she's saying in layman terms. I'm a medical person and was a bit confused by some of her explanations for my situation. I wasn't asked if I had any questions which left me a little dumbfounded when I left.

I switched toDr H 2 years ago because of problems that my prior gyn advised would require a hysterectomy. Dr H was able to do some testing and resolve my problem without surgery. She's fantastic!! She also was unbelievably supportive and helpful when I went through my divorce. I can't recommend a Dr more highly!!!

Palm Beach Obstetrics & Gynecology does not see new patients. Only option is too see nurse practitioner. Next available appointment to see any doctor is 8 weeks away which is far too long if you already know you are pregnant.

Dr. H is awesome. I will not go to anyone else. I have referred friends to her and they love her just as much. She explains things so that you can understand them and is very open to you asking questions. When I had to have emergency surgery I am so glad that I was in her hands.

Dr. H was very informative, and you can tell she is an expert in her feild. However, she rattles off information like a machine gun, and the consult is often over before the patient is given a chance to process information. I also felt the visit was just a way for the practitioner to make additional funds by encouraging patients to join her HcG and detox diet programs or pay for expensive injections and supplements. The customer service has also deteriorated, staff does not return calls.
