    My daughter is 16 and I wanted her to talk to someone in women's health and establish care. Michelle Wallace made her feel so comfortable and as a mother of a teen, that's hard to find. I cannot say enough great things about her. We will definitely recommend Her MD to friends and family.

    I had went to an few offices prior to this one looking for answers. The office staff was kind, Courtney Cortez was wonderful, she explained everything she was thinking and really made me feel informed and at ease. A far cry from the provider I had seen previously. Everyone was pleasant from the front desk, the nurse, the phlebotomist just wonderful. Best doctor office experience I’ve had in years.
