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!!
