"I dreaded menopause, but my doctor put my mind at ease and gave me all the assurance I needed to make these some of the best years of my life."
"I like that my OB-GYN knows my name, treats me like an individual and takes the time to answer all my questions."
"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."
Patty Fornoff, C.N.M., M.S., A.P.N.
