    Dr. Karlson (sorry if I misspelled that) is the best gynecologist I've been to. She seems genuine & sincere & took the time to talk to me & I could tell she was listening. Highly recommend her!

    I had been a patient of Dr. Hoffman's for nearly 19+ years and was sad to see him retire (yet thrilled for him!). I decided to see Dr. Karlsson for my first visit since Dr. H retired, and I'm so happy to report that she is amazing! I made the right choice to transition over to Dr. Karlsson at this time. I appreciate her disposition, thoroughness, and engagement. I'm really very happy. Thanks!
