    Is there anything else you would like to share about your experience with your provider?

    My previous OB-GYN was with me for 30 years until his retirement. Dr. David Johnson saw me through many years of infertility, miscarriage and delivered both my boys, I was sure I'd never find a Dr. I felt as comfortable with, but this visit changed that. I felt as though Dr. Goranson understood my need to connect and feel familiar and took the time to get familiar in a very comforting way. She also shows all the signs of knowing what she's doing and great at advising me while letting me decide what is right for me. I am so pleased that just by luck, I got this new Dr. as mine.....I feel very blessed.

    Lori always takes the time to listen. She also goes the extra step of asking about my family and events in my life. With that, she puts me at ease with what one might consider an uncomfortable appointment. She's just great all around.
