It was so amazing and wonderful to have a provider who actually sit down & look me eye to eye and asked how I was. Her nurse was very respectful. I actually sat in my car after the visit and cried. I felt like a patient and not a dollar signs with her. It was a wonderful visit. I hope novant continues to allow providers to spend time with their patients and not let us just become a 15 min time slot. Wonderful experience.

She was absolutely amazing. She responded very quickly with what I needed. I would recommend her to anyone! I will actually be switching over my total GYN care to Novant because of her!
