She’s fantastic and I can’t imagine going to anyone else. She’s super attentive and patient and very intelligent. I’ve recommended her to my sister and she’s making the switch.

I always found going to the gynecologist awkward and uncomfortable. It was one of the annual exams I profusely disliked; however, Samantha made the experience much different! She made me feel comfortable and changed my view of my annual visits.She was very professional and kind, I greatly recommend her!

Samantha was very professional and made me feel very comfortable! Only thing I would recommend is calling the office and not going by this app because I booked my appointment but when I called the office they did they didn’t havea record of my appointment but they took care of me right away !

She was so great. I was dismissed by so many doctors before her and she really listened to everything I had to say and gave me plenty of time to talk to her. She did the appropriate tests and scheduled anotherappointment with me so we can do more tests. She's lovely, even her assistants were thrilled to be working for her.

She was professional, the problem was when she referred me to dr. Daniel for a tumor surgery. It was horrible, his team has no confidentiality, unprofessional and rude, they sent me home with the needle in my arm. All the womenwere put in the same recovery room, o saw their blood, knew their stories, I DO NOT APPRECIATE SEEING WOMEN HAVING ABORTIONS WHEN I'M TRYING TO GET PREGNANT.

Dr. Kesten was so nice and informative. However, the receptionist was quite rude. I asked a question regarding the paperwork and she snapped at me. But my experience was quickly turned to a positive one when I met with the doctorand I felt like she really took my concerns seriously and made sure I felt comfortable at all times.
