    Dr. Goranson is the truly a great doctor. I see her once per year and she really takes the time to talk with me about all issues, not just GYN-related. I know I can count on her for to take good care of me, and she’s so friendly and really does take interest in my health. I am so glad she is my doctor!

    Dr. Gorenson was great. She didn't know anything about my history as this was just an annual check. But, she was very kind and listened. I have been a patient of Dr. Olmstead for 16/17 years and was not able to get in to her.

This is so important and goes a long way to relieve worries and stress in these times. Thank you very much. My OBGYN is Lori Goranson and her assistant was very good as well.
