"At MCWHC we bring the most current information to our patients so that they can make well informed choices about their health care."
"My doctor makes me feel there's nothing more important than my health and the health of my unborn baby. I have peace of mind knowing that we're both in the best care."
"I like the fact that I can receive routine gynecological exams, special services and screenings all from one doctor, in one office. This makes it really convenient for me."
