What most impresses me about Dr. Townsend is the fact that although he is up to date with the most modern procedures and surgical techniques, he is not quick to jump into surgery. He has a comforting conservative approach. He is easy to talk to and explains things in a way anyone can understand. If you are looking for the best, Dr. Townsend is the one.

Wonderful doctor and staff. I had the monalisa touch treatments and after years of discomfort I finally received relief. I recommend this to anyone who is seeking a solution to pain and discomfort for post menopausal and breast cancer treatment. Hormone treatment was not an option for me. I highly recommend you seek Dr. Townsend for advice and treatment. Sue

I have had the opportunity to see Dr. Townsend in action! He is genuinely concerned about his patients. Dr. Townsend is very kind and knowlegeable when it comes not only to a woman's gynecological health but in every other medical aspect. I found the office to be warm and inviting and the staff was delightful! Very friendly and helpfull! I truly appreciated the office manager Debbie and the front desk receptionist Destiny they were both amazing!
