This provider not only understood, how to explain medical things to me in layman's terms, but she also provided contacts for cultural issues that affect women like me and didn't make it sterile stiff environment. I felt very comfortable.
Dr. Gregory was amazing. She's the first OB that has actually ever, after the sonography left. She actually wanted to see me again, and she did the sonogram herself again, just to double check that everything was alright. So I thought that was really, really nice of her to take the time, instead of just taking for granted the pictures that the sonography had provided. So I really appreciate that. You know, I felt really taken care of.
I appreciate Dr. Gregory and her services and the staff supporting her. They are diligent, kind, and explain everything to me. I appreciate how thorough they are and have always been during my appointments.
