First time visiting with my new doctor. I was beyond pleased! She is exactly what I hoped for in a care provider. She asked so many questions about my overall health and really seed interested in what was going on with me. We spent a fair amount of time discussing my biggest questions. She had many answers to all of them. We decided together some new care routine to help myself and that we would further discuss them at a different appointment. I am very excited to have her as my new doctor!

I was so excited to find out that she could also help me with my pap so I didn't have to go find another provider for that. One stop service! She was so nice and made me feel very comfortable. I hadn't been to a doctor for preventive care for 5 years, so was extremely pleased with how she answered all my questions and took the time to make sure I got everything I needed and/or wanted.
