The Best!!

In 2009 I suffered from severe preeclampsia and delivered my son 9 weeks early. I am now 12 weeks pregnant and my OB referred me to Dr. August. She was an absolute pleasure. She was kind, professional and knowledgeable. I felt as if I was in the best of hands. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. August. You will not be disappointed.
