Mary Lou is literally an angel! this was my first visit with a gynecologist and she talked me through everything, explained what she was doing before and while, and made sure I was comfortable and answered all the questions I had!

Ms. Smith was excellent. She addressed my concerns and was able to answer my questions. I really liked that when she was examining me she established contact on my leg first and then narrated exactly what she was doing. I think every care provider should do this! It helped to put me at ease and made the examination go by quickly.

My experience with Marylou was the best I've ever had with a gynecologist. She was quick when she needed to be quick and really listened to every word that came out of my mouth. I'm recommending her to all my friends ! :)

Let me tell you, I am a military spouse and over the last decade I have seen at least 10 OBGYN providers and none of them hold a candle to Marylou. She was a literal god-send and exactly what I needed in my life. She honestly almost had me in tears from her ability to connect with me and listen to my concerns in order to reach a treatment timeline for the goals I had. I have never felt so heard in my ENTIRE LIFE. I wish I would have had her for the births of my children and I will, without a doubt, be singing praises about her to anyone that will listen. Words do not seem to be enough to relay my gratitude that I have for this amazing woman/provider/fellow human being. My care was without a doubt THE ABSOLUTE BEST.
