[...] there's always a bit of a feeling that you're a number [...]. This is fine by routine gynecological exams, but when I was pregnant with my first child (for which this was the 6-week followup visit), I really craved a more focused experience.

Dr. Zia is the best. She explained a sort of embarrassing situation in a way that made me feel comfortable, and is very respectful at all times (doesn't push pregnancy the way some OBs do for women of my age). She brought up a My Chart message that I had sent months ago and wanted to check if I was still having that issue or question, I had forgotten about it but I appreciated talking about it with her. I am never going to anyone else!

I loved Dr. Zia, she explained everything about my procedure clearly and I felt like she really listened to me when I had questions or concerns. I was very nervous about getting an IUD inserted but she made it so much easier to handle, I've already recommended her a couple of times.

I love how calm Dr. Zia is - I know as a first time mom-to-be - "Don't worry about it" is the best - Advice, but occasionally I'd like more info on WHY I shouldn't worry.
