I am 30 yrs old been seeing Dr. King since I was 14. He had to do an emergency Oophorectomy and Appendectomy surgery at 14 and if it wasn't for him I would have died. He also followed all 3 of my pregnancies. He very soft spoken and reassuring he let you know everything that's going on. He very understanding and an all around kind hearted Doctor. His wait times are usually long l, but that is to be expected due to labor and delivers. Would recommend him to any1.

I have been a patient of Dr. King for over 11 years. He has delivered all 4 of my children. I had a very hard delivery with two of my children and with the one delivery I am positive my child would not be alive if it wasn't for Dr. King's quick thinking and response. I will always go to Dr. King for my GYN care (since I am done having children) and I will recommend my daughters to him when the time comes. Excellent care the only negative is long wait times.

I saw him today a bit weary at first because of the reviews. By the time I left the office, I was happy and definitely more than satisfied. I thought he was very prompt, treats his patients with respect, spends plenty of time with them, and most importantly he listens to them and is very thorough with their health (and health concerns. He's an excellent ob/gyn.
