Excellent Doctor!! Every woman is nervous about seeing the OBGYN and she was everything you could want and more. I have recommenced her to my female colleagues, sisters and friends. She is so popular so there might be a wait but she is beyond worth it. I truly never had a more caring, personable, empathetic and human doctor. She also explains complex health issues on an easy level.
