Which AOA branch do you go to? How long have you been with the practice?

I have been going to New Horizons Women’s Care since I was referred to them in June of 2011 when I found out I was expecting my first child.

What do you like about AOA / New Horizons Women’s Care?

The doctors at New Horizons Women's Care are excellent and they all possesses very impressive knowledge and experience. My doctor took his time to answer my questions, address my concerns and ease my mind during my pregnancy. I consider myself very fortunate to have been referred to New Horizons Women’s Care for my prenatal care and the delivery of my little boy.

The nurses and staff at New Horizons were friendly and genuinely concerned about my welfare and about me as an individual as well. The care I received exceeded my expectations on many levels

What is your favorite quote or motto?

"Freethinkers are those who are willing to use their minds without prejudice and without fearing to understand things that clash with their own customs, privileges, or beliefs. This state of mind is not common, but it is essential for right thinking; where it is absent, discussion is apt to become worse than useless."- Leo Tolstoy
