Christine Besel was amazing! Above all she was super welcoming made me feel very comfortable. I was so nervous to go see a gynecologist today discuss some embarrassing problems that I have been experiencing but for the first time in almost 5 years in my seeing a gynecologist it was the best experience. Christine made me feel like I can be myself and just get everything checked out she reassured me that we would get down to the problem, and she didn’t just give her opinion, she said we would rule out everything possible by taking other tests. I love when I can feel confident leaving the doctors office! That doesn’t happen often!

I have left her office feeling better than when I walked in because of the awesome health care she provides.

July 25, 2017
Great doctors, I live over an hour away from this facility, totally worth the trip. Would recommend to anyone!
July 24, 2017
Ms. Besel is an excellent provider and very open to educating patients and hearing them out. I'm very satisified with her. This was my only experience with her so far but that day I waited 45 minutes (past my appt time) before she came in to see me. I don't know if she regularly runs late but she is very thorough with you and doesn't rush things which is good. Worth the wait.
July 21, 2017
Great staff and you'll feel comfortable to tell them exactly what's wrong with you. The nurses and Doctors won't look at you any different but get to the bottom of your problem.
