OB/GYNs

Angus, Stanley MD
Atlanta Women’s Specialists, Atlanta and Alpharetta, “Dr.  Angus has the best bedside manner. He actually gets to know his patients. He remembers it without looking at his charts. He grows a personal relationship with his Patients.” Jenn D., Atlanta

Bailey, Joyce MD
Gwinnett OBGYN, Snellville, 
“The whole office is very friendly and professional. The doctor is very knowledgeable and was able to understand all my needs and work through all of my high risk pregnancy situations.” Norma T., Suwanee

Biggs, Vanessa MD

I love Dr Biggs and her way of making the doctor-patient relationship feel more like spending time with a knowledgeable, caring friend. Her suggestions for treatment have always been spot on with my overall health in mind. I really appreciate her and the practice.” Sherlonda B., Mableton

Bootstaylor, Brad MD
SeeBaby, Atlanta, “I’m a mom of three kids. My first was delivered at 36 weeks and my second was delivered at 27 weeks, both c-sections. After those two pregnancies, I felt broken. I felt that my body was not built to sustain life in my womb. It was so bad that I was diagnosed with post-partum depression and anxiety.  I began my search for a high risk doctor and the name Bootstaylor was overwhelmingly recommended. When I met him, he told me that everything that I thought I couldn’t do, I would do. On 6/27/2015, I gave birth to my first term baby, complication free. When I was discharged, my baby was discharged, too. Thanks to Dr. Bootstaylor, ‘the 3rd time’s a charm’ rang true.” Banks, Marietta

Carroll, Kelli MD
Taylor, Suarez, Cook & Carroll, Atlanta, “This doctor and practice is amazing, loving and they always remember you by name. It’s nice to go by there and be taken care of as if you were family.” Dani O., Marietta

Chapman, Thaddeus MD
Promise Land Women’s Center, Atlanta, “Dr. Chapman is an exceptional doctor. He actually takes time to listen to your concerns. He always does what’s least invasive first, and before surgery he always prays with you if you don’t mind. I’ve been with him for ten years now and I won’t go to any other doctor. If it wasn’t for him my twin boys wouldn’t be alive today. I can honestly say I trust Dr. Chapman with my life. He is one of the few doctors in Atlanta that accepts Medicaid and I commend him for that. I know that it makes it hard on his practice financially but for him it’s not about the money and you can tell when you interact with him.” Shialla W., Austell

Chappell , Mary MD
OB/GYN Associates, Marietta, “Dr. Mary Chappell is a great OB. I’ve been her patient seven years now. She did my C-Section with my son, now 6 years old at 38 weeks due to a complicated pregnancy.  I had high blood pressure and preeclampsia. She’s a great surgeon as well. I like how upfront she is about topics.” Stefanie S., Dallas

Daus, Kevin MD
Premier Women’s Specialists, Decatur,  “Dr. Daus is more than an OB/GYN. He becomes involved in your life, and ensures that he is maintaining a healthy “you.” Dr. D is a family affair for my family as my mother, sister, aunt, and cousins are all members. We couldn’t imagine anyone else to entrust with our bodies.” Taylor P., Suwanee

Dawson, Michael MD
Atlanta Women’s Specialists, Alpharetta, “AWS has been with me through three pregnancies and the level of care is fantastic. Dr. Dawson especially goes out of his way to make you feel comfortable. He never rushed through appointments and always took the time to answer any questions I had. I wish I could nominate two because Dr. Angus of AWS also deserves nomination.” Ashley S., Lawrenceville

Day, Julie MD
Atlanta OBGYN Associates,  “Julie Day provides personable service. She strives to remember pertinent details about each and every one of her patients. I have enjoyed each of my visits over the past four years. The office has a five star quality presence. I enjoy visiting Julie and she will personally call to check on you.” Shiminege M., Atlanta

He was there to help bring my children into this world and will always be a trusted health care provider for us.” Stephanie P., Marietta

Falkner, Sabrina MD
The Women’s Group of Gwinnett, Lawrenceville, “Dr. Sabrina Falkner is an exceptional OB/GYN as she treats the whole person, not just her specialty. When I had my child, she was caring and concerned about my whole family. At one of the post-birth checkups, she not only checked on me and my child, she also asked about my husband and his well being since our son came home. Dr. Falkner is open to new ideas.  We banked our cord-blood when my son was born eleven years ago when it was not widely heard of yet. Several of the doctors were not open to it, but she was willing to do it for us. I like the fact that she is a woman and mother so she can truly relate to issues that women have.” Tiffany R., Lilburn

Fisch, Jacqui MD

Frederick, Hughan MD
Isis Women’s Health Care, Johns Creek and Roswell,  “Dr. Frederick is a consummate professional. He is a patient and attentive clinician and deeply cares about the unique issues that arise with each pregnancy. During my high risk pregnancy, Dr. Frederick never left the nurses’ station, let alone the hospital, until my child was delivered safely. Although he is a busy doctor, I as a patient never felt rushed, and have seen that extra care is taken each and every time. His courteous and competent support staff create a wonderful office environment.  I have been his patient since 2011, and although it is quite a long drive from Snellville to John’s Creek, I would never entertain the thought of changing doctors.” Monique P., Snellville

I know of at least three other women who are his patients who share the same sentiment. He never forgets a face or procedure linked to the patient; as a result, he has the ability to comfort and explain in detail clinical matters with ease. Dr. Geltz is kind, patient and shows a willingness to answer every question and address every concern no matter the significance to the patient. He truly is one of the best OB/GYN professionals in the field.” Tia M., Stone Mountain

Our visits are all like two friends over lunch about our children, careers, life, or just anything.  I recommend her to all of my friends and family.” Meka U., Atlanta

Hill, Cherie MD
Emory Gynecology & Obstetrics, Atlanta, “Dr. Cherie Hill is non-judgmental and so down to earth. She is young and very smart. She caught and terminated potential cancer cells that a previous OB/GYN overlooked. I refuse to move from Georgia because of her. She’s my hero!” Amanda D., Dacula

Jewell, Bryan MD

Of course, telephone calls are quickly answered as well and last minute appointment requests are accommodated. I had a high risk pregnancy and this practice was very attentive to all of my concerns.

She was always available when I needed her.” Alisha L., Stone Mountain

Keeling, Margaret MD
Wellstar Medical Group Kennestone OB/GYN, Marietta and Woodstock, “Dr. Keeling is the most patient and knowledgeable OB/GYN I have used. My first son was breech, so I had a c-section with him. I really wanted to try for a VBAC with my second. She monitored the pregnancy very closely, and was very knowledgeable on all my options, knowing that was my desire. I always feel like I’m going to see a friend that I trust when I have appointments with her. I also recently found out that I carry the BRCA genetic mutation, and need increased ovarian screening because of this, with eventual preventative surgery for ovarian cancer. Dr. Keeling is extremely knowledgeable on the topic and takes my screenings very seriously, and is just as proactive about my health as I am.” Lauren H., Marietta

Kelley, Terry MD

Kim, Edmund MD

Lathrop, Eva MD
Emory Gynecology & Obstetrics, Atlanta, “Finding a GYN who understands my daughter’s needs is complicated. Thankfully, following a recommendation from a parenting group and extensive research, we found Dr. Eva Lathrop at Emory. She has been practical, up-front, non-judgmental, and balanced with her recommendations.  She treats my daughter with dignity, speaking to her and explaining what she is doing. Her recommended treatment plan has been appropriate for my daughter’s needs, medically and developmentally.” Annonymous

Levitt, Brian MD
Dr. Brian A. Levitt, MD, Snellville,  “Dr. Levitt is a really great doctor who takes his time with his patients. Don’t want to deal with those huge practices where you see a different doctor every visit? Dr. Levitt builds a relationship with his patients.  My daughter was having complications during labor; Dr. Levitt didn’t hesitate to do what needed to be done. And because of that my daughter is a happy thriving two year old today.” Lisa F., Lawrenceville

Lovinger, Jeffery MD

Lynch-Miller, Sharon MD
Southern Crescent Women’s Healthcare, Fayetteville, “I had a difficult pregnancy, being an insulin dependent diabetic. After having my daughter through C-section, I had a terrible infection and it caused my womb to open up. Dr. Lynch-Miller took care of me physically and emotionally; she worked with me and worked with my insurance company to help me get a nurse. She found the exact care I needed that healed me up.” Kristi W., Hampton

She eased my anxiety and fears as a first-time mom carrying twins, and held my hand the entire way. I heard from other moms and even the hospital staff that I would surely have a C-section because of my multiples, but Dr. Middleton discussed all options with me, which helped me choose the best birthing plan.” Morgan A., Norcross

Miller-Thrasher, Melinda MD
Innovative Women’s HealthCare Solutions, Smyrna, “Super knowledgeable, always comforting and cool to talk to. She doesn’t make you feel embarrassed or weird about anything.” Jessie D., Marietta

Pitcher, Mary MD
Unified Premier Women’s Care, Marietta, “Dr. Mary C. Pitcher is a kind, caring, competent and compassionate OB/GYN. She calls personally with test results. She takes time during appointments so that I never feel rushed. She has a wonderful bedside manner. She is conservative in her measures but she also takes problems seriously and delivers exceptional care. I had identical twins in 2003. She took great care of me. She sent us to a perinatologist. She did not opt for a C-section automatically, which I feel many doctors automatically default to, especially in a mid-level risk pregnancy such as mine. This made me feel confident that we were going to try for vaginal birth. It worked out and we did it! I feel she is a friend and a family member.” Jennifer S., Marietta

“She delivered both of my children. My oldest was in the NICU for a week, and she came by everyday to check on my family. One night she came up at 11pm after she had worked a long, hard day.” Beth T., Marietta

Robbins, Laurie Leigh MD
Unified Premier Women’s Care, Marietta, “Through a miscarriage, successful pregnancy, routine exams, and hysterectomy (due to carcinoma in situ), Dr. Robbins has always taken the time to talk to me and listen to my concerns.

Roberts, Archie MD
Peachtree Women’s Specialists, Atlanta, “Dr. Archie Roberts’s genuine care for his patients is sincere and has been consistent for the twelve plus years I’ve been going to his practice.

She is great at explaining things in a way that is easy to understand.” Noelle D., Powder Springs

Tate, Joseph MD
DeKalb-Gwinnett OB/GYN, Norcross, “Bottom line he lets women make the choices for their body. He’s delivered triplets vaginally twice and his VBAC numbers are out of this world. You will feel respected and knowledgeable after just one visit with him.” Melanie O., Loganville

Verleger, Susan MD
Isis Women’s Health Care, Roswell and Johns Creek, “Dr. Verleger goes above and beyond to guarantee her patients’ health and the best outcome possible. I have had a very complicated pregnancy and thanks to her I’m still pregnant and my baby is still going strong, despite a low survival rate due to a viral infection acquired in the first trimester.” Nathalia F., Kennesaw

Parrish, Brenda CPM, CLC
Traditional Birth Services, Marietta, “Brenda is so sweet, knowledgeable, down to earth, and comforting. She has a ton of experience in both birth and other related topics, is supportive, and helps give you the full education necessary, so that you can make the best choices for you and your family.
