What patients are saying.
Dr. Stephen Fishman is a phenomenal doctor. He should be considered a role model. I wouldn't go to anyone else!
Dr. Karabatsos is the ultimate professional… she is easy to relate to, listens attentively, and takes all my concerns seriously. I have confidence in her clinical care.
Dr. Karabatsos is an intelligent, respectful, thorough, and wonderful caregiver.
She is thorough, caring, and always makes sure my questions and concerns are addressed. I would give her the highest of recommendations.
Dr. Shipman is the best. She always takes the extra time needed to answer all of my questions.
Dr. Ellis is absolutely fantastic. She is extremely knowledgeable, experienced, compassionate, and caring. She is attentive, always listens to me, and explains things to me in terms I easily understand.
I love Dr. Maria Ellis. She has always shown the upmost concern for my health care, and she has taken the time to answer all my questions and concerns.
Dr. Shipman was fantastic. She took plenty of time to talk to me during my visit, and spent additional time talking to me on the phone when she called to follow up with me later in the day.
Dr. Karabatsos is the perfect blend of professionalism, personal care, and concern. There isn't anyone better that I would want for my ObGyn.
