Patient Comments (3)

Extremely caring and thorough. Takes the time to explain everything in "normal" language. Very nice staff! Makes a normally unpleasant experience into something very comfortable!

She likes to stereotype and restricts your diet. My son was full term and underweight because she told me that I could not eat any carbs or gain weight during my pregnancy. I was 135 lbs pre-pregnancy and at 8.5 months, I was only 145lbs. Each checkup, she would tell me that I could only gain 1lb....more

I've been a patient for 10 years. She delivered my healthy 9 year old son. I've kept her as my primary GYN ever since. Highly recommended. My mom is even a patient of hers now after seeing how will she cared for me throughout my pregnancy and labor & delivery.
