Dr Dost was wonderful! This was my first visit with her. I had been a patient of Dr Siegel and Dr Schauer and loved them! Dr Dost has all their wonderful qualities. She had read my file and was familiar with my history. She answered my question and reassured me. I loved her!

Dr. Dost has been the best doctor I have ever seen. She explains everything so I can understand and make the most informed decisions regarding my care. She is also there for me with whatever I need and makes me feel important. I would recommend Dr. Dost to anyone! I feel blessed to have her for my doctor!

There are not enough words in the English language to describe how incredibly wonderful Dr. Dost and her team are. I was terrified and unsure of what my future looked like, but Dr. Dost is the calm in the storm. She made myself and my family feel confident and positive about my future and related to me in a way that you don't see in Dr.'s offices these days anymore. She is a kind, gentle, wonderful person and she treats you like human being with feelings and concerns, and really validates your feelings it's absolutely amazing. I wish all doctors were like Dr. Dost, and I wish her and her team all the good things this world has to offer.
