Not impressed, I have family history of female cancer. In the last 9 months I've had problems such as irregular Cycles spotting in between, watery discharge of which none of this is common for myself. An ultrasound was completed and new growths were found. I was told everything was fine and just dismissed. Needless to say I went for a second opinion and everything is not fine.

Dr. Degen is absolutely incredible. She answers all of your questions (without making you feel stupid) and takes as much time as is needed at each and every appointment. She is very kind and makes you feel at ease. Her nurse is wonderful as well. We would never consider going anywhere else.

Dr. Degen goes above and beyond when I'm in the room. Whether I'm her very first patient or her very last that day she is always in a wonderful mood! She listens to every issue or question I have and will actually explain what's going on rather then a previous doctor who just ignored me or he would tell me what it was but not how, why, or what caused it. Very knowlagable!
