I had an appt with Dr Scholten today. I realized I have been going to her office even before my girls were born. My oldest is 13 yrs old. I thanked her for the wonderful care I've received over the years. I have experienced other doctors cutting corners because healthcare is changing. I'm thankful that she still upholds her standards and genuinely cares about my health and well being. She is truly a doctor I every sense of the word.

I love Dr. Scholten. She has been my physician for about 15 years. She delivered both of my beautiful children and could not have asked for a better experience. It is awesome to find a physician who has years of experience and actually loves what she does. I have recommended her to several of my friends and they have all had positive experiences.
