In some cases, they may also provide primary care.
What Training Do They Have?

He's such an awesome doctor, I feel like I'm finally getting some help after 6 years in pain. He listened to me and answered all of my questions. He even made sure I had enough medicine until I see if my insurance covers it. The nice ladies at the front desk Maria and Yesenia are so welcoming and nice. We had some good laughs before I left.
He's an amazing doctor he's been my doctor for over 6 years. I would recommend to every woman you won't be disappointed with him! He really cares about his patients and takes his time to make sure his patients questions are answered.
Dr. Alshahrour has been my gynecologist for over 5 years. He delivered my second child. He is always available, professional, on time and very thorough with his practice. I’ve referred friends and family and they are happy with his level of expertise and most importantly the comfort they feel when in his care.
