  1. I love Erin Hoekstra and GR Woman’s Health! Only thing about the office is that they have close to 20 Doctors on staff… you don’t meet anyone other than your doctor and often have never met the doctor who ends up being at the birth. I do love their office tho! I’ve had 3 Vbacs with them.

  2. Anita VanDeBurg is outstanding! An amazing doctor and friend! She helped me through a very difficult pregnancy and safely brought my son home to us. Since then she has been there as we added two more children. I could not imagine going through motherhood without her.

  3. Dr Brad Irving is hands down the best!! His super nice and never seems to rush even how busy they are I love that especially if you have questions you want to feel like you matter not feeling in a rush.

  4. 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!

  5. Dr Brenda Dainels!! I love her. she delivered my sister 19 years ago, was the midwife for my sister and niece and now is my midwife!! will go to her for my next baby too

  6. Mary Beth Stearns

    I remember so many of these wonderful physicians from their residencies at Blodgett Hospital in the OR! I am an RN who worked there from 1984 until 2004. Congratulations!

  7. Dr. Dalm is THE best ob !!! LOVE Him and his staff !!
    He delivered 4 of my siblings, 2 of my nephews, and my 2 kids !!! I have never felt more comfortable !!

    1. 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!

  8. 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)

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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)

  12. Michigan OBGYN. They have multiple locations but I see Dr. Florido and I absolutely love her! I am 32 weeks with my third child and have been to her for each of my pregnancies. Her PA is awesome as well! I would highly recommend her and you deliver at Metro Health Hospital which is also really nice.

    1. Love Dr. Lown! Have been seeing him since I was 18 now 36. He delivered both my babies. Couldn’t ask for a better OBGYN.

  13. Women’s Health Center – Dr. Elena Tanner is amazing! She can put up with my not so serious personality very well but make things serious when needed and has answered my billion questions about having a second baby after our first was 8 weeks early!!! I love all the Drs in the office but especially her!!

  14. Dr. Anita Vandeburg at GR Women’s Health is hands down the best. I so appreciated every single interaction (and there were lots) during my higher risk pregnancy and since. I can’t praise her and the whole office enough (personable, attentive, caring staff across the board).

    1. Thank you for letting us know that Dr. Wolfe is now no longer practicing. We contacted Spectrum Health to verify and have taken her name off of the list.

  15. #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. 🙂
    I’d recommend him to anyone!

    1. Mary Beth Stearns

      I love this! I’m an RN that once worked in Blodgett OR and I remember Roger as a resident. I’m glad you keep him on his toes! I sure did! Tell him I said “Hi” if you get the chance.

  16. Dr. Steensma & Dr. VanderSlooten at West MI OBGYN. Delivered my son 11 months ago. Great experience from first visit to the final visit.
