I felt like I was between a rock and a hard place in deciding the appropriate level of care for my gynecological condition with all other preexisting conditions being taken into consideration. Dr. H. was referred to me by other women in his care and was my second opinion after much wasted time with another doctor.
After meeting Dr. H. and going over my history, I felt that he had a better grasp of my situation, had actually read my file, and fully informed me of my options. He spent time going over potential outcomes dependent on circumstances and what to expect, did not push, and made me feel like a person and not another patient number on the chopping block.
With his help, I was able to decide to move forward with a decision for a partial hysterectomy. Throughout the hysterectomy process, he's been there to answer questions, provide support, and refill/ suggest meds (as needed). I probably deserve a gold star on my chart as my body is super sensitive and reactive, but he has taken this in stride and is very matter-of-fact and down to earth when dealing with the issues that have arisen. My surgery was not the easiest and recovery is ongoing, but I feel that the care I needed was, and continues to be, a priority to Dr. H. and I appreciate his thoroughness, experience, diligence and care.
My only regret is not having found that he was practicing in Napoleon, Ohio sooner! I feel that he's one in a million and I highly recommend him.
