Dr. Kobalter was very clear with his explanations during our first pregnancy. Unfortunately we miscarried, but he walked us through what to expect, was very patient in answering my questions, took time with my husband and I, and was very straightforward but positive with our 'next steps'. Very positive attitude, friendly, good bed-side manner.
