Dr Laypayoker took her time with me and explained all the changes that I am going through in menopause. I was with another gyn for almost 30 years and she never took the time to sit with me I will definitely be going back and will recommend her to my friends.

Not only Dr. Lapayowker, but her office staff and nurses are amazing! The office is always immaculate and time efficient. I've been seeing her for over 20 years. Two of our daughters were a little nervous at their first vist, but everyone made them feel comfortable. We highly recommend Dr. Lapayowker!!
