What a pleasant doctor with the best bedside manner. My first visit was thorough and not rushed. Dr. Essandoh made me feel so comfortable and not nervous at all. I only wish I had not waited so long to make an appointment.

Dr Essandoh is by far the most caring, patient Gynecologist I have ever had. Dr Essandoh sits down and asks questions and talks to you before the exam; she really gets to know you and anything that is bothering you. Amazing Doctor

I never ever leave reviews; but, Dr. Essandoh surpassed my expectations to such a degree that I felt I would be doing the world an injustice if I did not spread the word about her. I of course echo all of the 5 star review comments above and, in addition, would like to add that if you are looking for a doctor whose medical knowledge is encyclopedic, treats the whole person, and takes the time to be caring even while maintaining a very efficient office, then Dr. Essandoh is someone you should consider visiting. She is friendly, understanding, sympathetic and I can not stress how diligent and patient she is -- she even draws pictures to ensure I fully understand the "wheres", "whats" and "whens". Moreover, she talks to you like a real person, wants to know about you and your family and remembers the "small details" when you visit next. 5 stars all around, and if i could give 10, i would!

Dr. Essandoh, and her office staff, are absolutely outstanding! They are welcoming and friendly. Dr. Essandoh has an excellent bedside manner. She was truly interested in me as a person, as well as my family, and not just as a patient. She was in no rush to get the the next patient. I felt that I had her complete attention the whole time.

I went to Dr. Essandoh on a recommendation as a new patient but with some concerns resulting from a sonogram I had done. Given my age and family history I was worried. She went over every aspect of the report with me, discussed what she was concerned about and what she wasn’t in a very calm and reassuring tone. I had more tests/surgery and she was amazing through it all. Her staff is efficient and caring as well. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Essandoh, I am so thankful I found her!

Just had my annual exam with Dr. Essandoh for the first time since my regular gyn Doctor retired. She was extremely knowledgable, patient, and understanding with a wonderful bedside manner. Dr. Essandoh made me feel comfortable and relaxed. She explained everything, answered all my questions and spent as much time as needed with me. I was nervous going to a new doctor after so many years, but my visit was extremely positive. Dr. Essandoh is a keeper!!
