So no one looks forward to finding a new Gynecologist but I lucked out big time when I found Dr. Lopez. She is kind, caring and truly listens to her patients. Some scary procedures I had to have done were handled with the utmost care and comfort. Not to mention the fantastic Nurse Jordi (love her) and everyone at the front desk. Informative, efficient and knowledgeable. If you’ve found your way to Dr. Lopez and her support staff, you’ve basically won the gyno-lottery.

Dr Lopez is a very knowledgeable and caring physician. She takes the time to discuss and explain any issues. She is also very thorough and does not dismiss any concerns. I have gone to her for a number of years and highly recommend her. Her staff is also very helpful and on top of any issues that arise. One of the most efficiently run Doctor’s offices I have been to. There are never long wait times and they are very communicative by email to address any questions or test results.
