Melissa Tharpe is amazing and I have recommended her to many friends. I have also recommended Woman Care to friends and clients whom I work with. The care I receive at Woman Care is like no other facility I visit. Melissa Tharpe gets an A plus from me, she is compassionate, and listens for as long as you need and answers all of your questions.
