This place is extremely lucky to have Marylou. She is an exceptional person to talk to and I have nothing but amazing things to say about her. She listened, took her time, talked me through what she was doing, understood that this has been a lasting issue, and was friendly.

I felt like every concern I had coming in was heard, understood and treated accordingly. She listened to my fears and struggles and took her time making sure I was comfortable. This was by far the best experience I've had with a basic annual check up.

I had previously been to the Women's Health clinic (in August) and saw a different provider. After that visit, I felt completely discouraged as we were laughed at for our concern regarding fertility. Fast forward to our visit with Mary Lou and I cry thinking about how amazing she was to us. She took the time to speak to my husband and showed genuine concern and interest in our situation. I left there feeling like Mary Lou was as invested in expanding our family as we are and she honestly gave me new hope and peace about the situation. I cannot say enough great things about Mary Lou, she is truly an angel!
