"I was scared and nervous but the staff made me feel so comfortable and answered all my questions."


"My daughter was a patient last week and I can not thank you enough for the kindness and excellent care she received. The doctor was so caring and even spent extra time with her. This was difficult decision but we made the right choice to come to Options!"


"Your office staff is so nice and caring. I especially appreciate the woman in the room who held my hand through the entire procedure. She kept me calm and talked me through it all - Thank You!"


"I have had an abortion at a different clinic and they weren’t very nice so I was extremely scared when I arrived at your office. As soon as I walked in the door, I was greeted by a kind, compassionate woman at the window. I knew right away that I was in good hands. Your clinic is professional, warm and caring- just what women need for this kind of service. I will refer any friends or family to your clinic."


"Thank you from the bottom of my heart!"

"Excellent care, excellent doctor."

"My doctor referred me to you and now I know why she trusts you! You’re the best."
