What patients are saying.
The nursing staff is wonderful. I used the online service to contact them after hours and received a prompt call the next morning. That is peace mind during COVID-19!
Dr. Lavallee is great at what he does, and continually has made me feel very comfortable at each appointment.
Dr. Levine has been my health care provider for over 20 years and he has always listened carefully to any and all concerns.
Dr. Szutowska always makes me feel comfortable and listens to my concerns.
Dr. Szutowska took her time answering all my questions. The procedure went smoothly and she made sure I was okay the whole way. This is why I keep coming back. I also recommend her to other women.
She was warm and knowledgeable. She took time to listen to me and to explain my options for the future. I appreciated her time and guidance, and I enjoyed meeting her for the first time.
Dr. Lavallee is very thorough and he doesn't rush. He took time to ask important questions and he made sure that all my questions and concerns were addressed.
Dr. Levine is always patient and takes his time to listen to concerns. I recommend him to anyone who needs a ObGyn.
I would highly recommend Dr. Lavallee and this staff to anybody I cared about based on all my experiences here.
