Dr. Summers has taken care of my needs, delivering 2 of my daughters and OBN appointments, for 30 years. She has helped assist me with my routine procedures, that are needed as I mature. I am amazed how on time my visits are. Sometimes babies happen, but that is the nature of her business! She is very thorough, excellent bedside manner and answers most of my questions before I can ask. She was the first person to diagnose my mother with another disease. I can not say enough good things about Dr. Summers. If your are looking for a new OGN, need to take your daughter for first visit, etc. Dr. Summers will make you very comfortable and be there when you need her.

I first saw Dr. Summers 32 years ago when I was 16 for my first-ever OBGyn appointment. I’ve been been through two pregnancies with her, and I trust her completely with my care. She is an excellent doctor with a great bedside manner. She is professional, gentle, caring, and spends the right amount of time with me to discuss my healthcare and concerns. I highly, highly recommend her. In additional to all of the above, she has wonderful nurses and staff who have been with her for many years. It’s always a pleasure to see the same people, and it’s very comforting when dealing with such private and sensitive issues as women’s health.
