Wonderful doctor who cares about his patients. He answers all questions in terms everyone can understand and talks you through all procedures step by step. He will even give his personal cell number if you have concerns or if something happens after office hours. I would not go to anyone else.

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

Dr. Khater's Care Philosophy

Fortunate enough to have been trained at the University Of Chicago Pritzker School Of Medicine, then residency at the University Of Michigan Medical Center in Ann Arbor, Michigan, gives Dr. Russell Khater the academic skill good obstetrics and gynecology demands. He prides himself on his communication skills as well, being an easy doctor to whom to listen AND talk, reasoning, 'What good is my training if my patients don't feel like they can TALK to me? Education is a big part of what I do, and I want my patient's appointment to be not just her learning what she should do, but also learning why she's doing it.'
