    I felt so comfortable and safe with my doctor, especially during the painful and stressful removal/insertion of my Mirena! Thank you so much for taking the time to listen and care for me.

    I was extremely nervous about my appointment, but could not have been more at ease. I feel very fortunate to have had such a positive experience after putting off such an important appointment for so long.

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

    I absolutely loved the provider I saw during my appointment. She made me feel extremely comfortable with the procedure and letting her examine me, even though the nature of the procedure is a little invasive. She even went over my family medical history of breast cancer and the possibility of genetic testing in the future, which I thought was so thorough and amazing of her! She gave me great confidence in her abilities as my provider, and I will most definitely be back for my yearly exam and any future needs I have! The medical assistant who checked me in was also thorough, and quick, which I really appreciated! Overall it was a great experience at the clinic, I couldn?t have been happier!
