Amazing doctor who goes out of her way. Squeezed me in for multiple appointments during her time off when my earlier pregnancy was not viable. Gave us a very sensible game plan to deal with complications. Made a lot of great calls that resulted in our healthy son being delivered and a fast recovery...more

Horrible in my opinion. Did not use any anesthesia for a procedure I have and terrible bedside manner.
