Elaine, was not helpful at all. Did not care for my well being. 0 stars will not be back. When someone is having issues with conceiving they want someone who will offer them solution she did not do that. Very rude

I trust this doctor. When you develop a trust with a patient, that patient is more likely to be compliant. I noticed her focus was on me, the patient, and my specific concerns. In addition to the physical exam, she educated me. I left her office with not only a clear understanding of my dx but also of the need to be compliant with the treatment plan.

The doctor was compassionate, patient, and knowledgeable. She was very attentive and took time to answer any questions and provide us with information regarding our new pregnancy. I really appreciated her calm demeanor and attentiveness.

Again, Dr was wonderful at explaining everything that I had done and what would most likely be the next procedure and discussion I would have with the oncologist. I am very grateful to have met such a kind and caring physician.
