      What Our Patients Are Saying

      “I would probably have another baby just to work with Dr. Messersmith again. All jokes aside, I worked closely with Messersmith, Kapner, and Vasudeva during my pregnancy/delivery and would strongly recommend all three. I had a complicated pregnancy and delivery and truly feel like the doctors at this clinic saved my life. Dr. Messersmith was one of the few doctors I’ve ever worked with who really listened to my concerns and tried absolutely everything to alleviate discomfort and pain during my pregnancy. There was never a hint of dismissal.”

      “I recently had my first appointment with Dr. Cole Messersmith and I must say, it was a great experience. .
      Dr. Cole Messersmith was very professional and knowledgeable. He took the time to listen to my concerns and asked detailed questions to get a better understanding of my medical history. He explained everything in a clear and understandable manner, making sure I was fully informed about my condition and treatment options. What I liked the most was Dr. Cole Messersmith genuine care and empathy. He made me feel comfortable and at ease throughout the entire appointment. He took the time to address all of my questions and concerns, and I never felt rushed or dismissed.”
