What Women Are Saying

Heather, Energized After Minimally Invasive GYN Surgery

The CIGC staff was fantastic. Every staff member, from the scheduler to the anesthesiologist team at the surgery center, was a pleasure to work with and to be assisted by. Everyone was pleasant, competent, knowledgeable about the procedure, and went above and beyond to address any concerns or questions that I had.
