Knowledgeable, kind and confident. Dr Milkman is exemplary in every sense. I am very fortunate to have found Dr Milkman as my previous gynecologist recently retired.

I was referred to Dr. Milkman for an urgent matter, she provided clear instructions and performed a surgical procedure within the week. In fact, she personally contacted UCSF several times to obtain a critical follow up ultrasound so we could schedule the surgery as soon as possible. She was thoughtful, clear and concise and cares tremendously about her patients.

I needed to see Dr Milkman for large cyst that was compacting my sciatic nerve. She was booked 3 months out but I was able to see her NP. The day of my appointment the front desk staff forgot to click a button that 'checked me in',so I was skipped over. Once the front office realized this, instead of trying to fix the issue, the tried to reschedule me for a week later. When I explained the urgency of the situation, they didn't care. I would never trust or recommend a Drs office that doesn't care
