I’ve had the absolute best experience here at Women’s Health Group. I often get anxious when visiting doctors, but Lexi and the team here have always made me feel very safe and relaxed. I had to get some blood work done and they drew my blood on-site at the clinic, which was super convenient! I was encouraged to lay down and rest afterwards for as long as I needed, and I never felt rushed. I’ve also gotten an IUD here and it was a million times easier than I expected. Lexi is just fantastic and talked me through the whole process! The team here will do everything in their power to help you receive the care you need, and I highly recommend this clinic.
