    Sandra Karp is an excellent provider! I appreciate the time she takes with me during each visit. She has also taken the time to call me regarding a question I had sent through the patient portal. Sandra answers all of my questions every time and explains it in a way I can understand. I am so pleased to have her as my nurse midwife during my pregnancy.

    Sandra was excellent, no complaints. But due to the pathways program and the busy schedule the doctors have, I feel like I haven?t seen my provider in a very long time.
