Dr. Overton was introduced to me in a fairly chaotic situation in the hospital during the delivery of my second child. Although it was high stress, Dr. Overton's calm presence and bedside manner helped to ease my worry and create a space of tranquility for me and my unborn child. She is extremely knowledgeable, caring and attentive. She visited me often and remembered specifics about my family and I. I felt like a person and not an obligation/number. Dr. Overton is incredible, highly recommend.

Dr. Overton is passionate about what she does and it shows!!! I met her early in my very challenging pregnancy. (Diabetes, high blood pressure, border line pre eclampsia ) She proved to be God sent! She addressed my unique medical needs with compassion and expertise. I felt like i was her only patient. Thanks to her, my dream of motherhood is now a reality...she delivered my healthy little angel at 26w 5d!!! And oh, i can still show off my flawless tummy! I couldn't have found a better DR!!!

Dr. Sheila Overton is a very knowledgeable & experienced ob/gyn specialist with good diagnosis skills & pleasant bedside manner. She patiently answered my Qs (which were many, as I am a scientist), & even gave me additional material to read & understand better. She also pointed me to other resources that I could avail of. Although busy, she kindly returned my call to address additional Qs & to discuss test results. She is not only very competent as a Dr. but is also a kind & understanding lady!
