Philosophy Of Care

My philosophy includes engaging and empowering women by using an approach that integrates both traditional and holistic treatments.

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.

I felt rushed at the appointment and was not given much explanation of what what was going on. When I tried to follow up after receiving my results, I had many questions and I felt that Dr. Biester Did not care to really answer them or give me more information about my results and what I could do going forward. Seemed like she did not care and was disinterested in helping me. I will be switching doctors.
