    Dr. Jessica Gibbie is just as wonderful as her amazing partners Dr. Bennett, Dr. Gorsuch, Dr.Turke, Dr. Anderson, & Dr. Zylstra, and I am so glad she is part of their team. I look forward to one of them delivering my baby at Mercy Health Saint Mary’s in July. I know we are in wonderful hands with any one of them. Thank you Mercy Health Physician Partners – OB/GYN East Beltline, you are all amazing at what you do!

      I agree 100%! Not only is he a great doctor who delivers babies, he delivered both of mine, but he’s great at explaining women’s health, in general! When I had questions regarding my Endometriosis, he was very compassionate. Not only did he answer all of my questions, he explained them in great detail, until I understood everything. He always made me feel comfortable! His staff is just as compassionate and friendly as he is!

    Dr. Anita VanDeBurg is the best Doctor I have ever had. For anything ever. I have every confidence in her knowledge, but, her interpersonal skills are what put her towards the top of the list. She actually cares about her patients. I wouldn’t consider even having another baby if she couldn’t be my doctor. ( I had two high risk pregnancies and switched to her after receiving less than stellar care at Spectrum)

    Dr. Monica Gary at Grand Rapids Women’s Health! I couldn’t have asked for a better ob for my two pregnancies! Caring, attentive, smart and personable. She also has the best nurse who works with her, Aimee. I never had a long wait to be called back to see the dr.

    The only female only practice I could find was the downtown office of Mercy Health Obgyn. They deliver at St. Mary’s. All of the other practices told me they cant promise they wouldn’t make me see a male doctor. If they won’t respect my wishes to only see females at their practice then I don’t have much hope that they will respect my laboring wishes either.

    Dr VanDeBurg and Dr Monica Gary at GR Women’s Health are both wonderful, gentle, and caring. Each doctor has their own nurse and you get your nurse’s direct line for ANYTHING. The office is clean and modern. There’s a spectrum health lab right in the building if you need any blood work done. They’re wonderful.

    Dr Florido. I love how relatable she is! She also doesn’t worry about things that don’t need to be worried about (had a doctor talk to me about my weight.. Dr. Florido didn’t tell me I’m gaining too much and try to worry me about it, but when I had an issue with my liver she let me know and told me what to worry about)

    #23 (Roger Edvenson, GR Women’s Health) is my OBGYN. He’s fabulous! If he ever retires I don’t know what I’d do.
    He makes sure you understand what is going on. How things look. If he has concerns. He answers the most ridiculous questions. I like to keep him on his toes. He doesn’t seem to mind. 🙂
