I have been going there for many years and have nothing but exceptional customer service from staff all across the board. I love the office and how well I am taken care of.
I can't imagine going to anyone else. she talks to you during exams to distract you but she really cares about you. I've cried with her and I've laughed with her. She is simply a genuine person with a great skill. She loves what she does and it shows.
The office location is perfect, the staff is fabulous, and the doctor always makes me feel comfortable and confident. I love that she explains everything she is doing to put me at ease and help me understand the procedure.
This doctor truly has my best interest in mind. She knows my complete medical and family history, references it during all visits, and thoroughly explains her recommendations. I felt so good leaving today, knowing many things were addressed and explained.
The entire staff at Sharon OB are wonderful people! When I go here for any reason, I feel like family. I will never use another doctor, I love them!
She makes me feel safe and confident in her care. I appreciate her expertise, knowledge, professionalism and delightfully warm manner. She's a skilled physician and spectacular human being, which is a rare and wonderful combo. I am SO grateful to be in her care.
As a young woman in her 20s, having a good OBGYN that I feel comfortable seeing is extremely important to me and she exceeds expectations. She is knowledgeable, shows a deep care for her patients, and always makes me feel comfortable.
We have formed a relationship and bond that will last a lifetime!!
She is the most amazing doctor I've ever had. She advocates for my health and well being in a way that no other doctor has before in my life. She is a champion of women's health and I feel so lucky to have found her.
I truly appreciate how well she listens. She's one of the only medical professionals I feel comfortable with to share anything. She makes it easy. I feel like she's my advocate and that's great.
He takes the time to answer all your questions and a great job of explaining things in terms a patient can easily understand. I am comfortable and value his input.
Love the ability to initiate scheduling online through the portal!
She's a very compassionate and intelligent doctor. I love her gentle approach. She makes an uncomfortable experience so much more tolerable.
I have been coming here for over 22 years. He delivered my last child and I've been with him ever since. He always talks to you in a way you understand and always makes me feel that no matter what my problem is it is important.
Making a difference for all women.
