    Doctor Pinkering is caring and comforting during my appointments. I'm quite anxious at these appointments however he puts me at ease. I appreciate the fact that my pre-appointment before the procedure was via virtual call. That was especially convenient.

    I have felt extremely well taken care of and attended to during my first pregnancy/miscarrying. Although it was a different doctor every time I have always been able to see a doctor in a reasonable amount of time and felt very well prepared ahead of my anticipated miscarriage because of your team so thanks.
