Although I do agree w another reviewer who said that their office is a mess, once I got in the private room, this doc gave me a very thorough pap smear and spent time w me. He was open to prescribing the FDA approved bioidentical hormones once I requested that. So instead of progestin, I got prometrium, which is bioidentical progesterone. Instead of premarin, I got him to prescribe Vivelle Dot, which is bioidentical estradiol. He repeatedly said that I should call him if I had any questions or wanted to change my prescription. I liked that he wanted me to titrate the hormones and call him -- i.e. he would work with me to figure out what dose felt best for me, instead of prescribing some standard cookie-cutter amount of hormones on a take-it or leave-it basis. It seemed to me that he respected the innate "wisdom" of women to choose what is best of our individual bodies - and that I really liked. I also found him very easy to talk to. One thing though -- his pap smear was a bit rough in the sense that he really scraped skin cells. I asked him about that, and he said the lab tells him that he gives them the best pap smears they ever had. But you should still know that the procedure is not a walk in the park w this doctor. For me, I did feel slightly sore for the entire rest of the day after having it done.
