Dr. Lisa Hovenga is professional, competent, personable and caring. I was referred to her by my NP for a condition my NP was unable to treat effectively. She came highly recommended from not only my NP, but from personal friends in the medical field. Dr. Hovenga quickly ran some diagnostic tests and discovered that I needed a hysterectomy. The surgery was performed soon after. She went out of her way to do the surgery on a day that she would normally not be working because it was in my best interest. She was very thorough in explaining the procedure, side effects, recovery,etc. and answered all my questions. It turned out that I had stage 1 uterine cancer. If Dr. Hovenga had not been diligent in diagnosing and treating me, I shudder to think about the cancer's development and subsequent treatment. I dodged a bullet with her help. Now that I am recovering, I appreciate her regular communication with me to see that I am comfortable and am healing properly. This woman is amazing at what she does and I highly recommend her.
