"I'm 35 and had stage IV endometriosis... Dr. LaGrand was the first OBGYN to take my symptoms seriously...I can hardly express how much my life has improved since recovering from surgery...and I would recommend anyone with a uterus  see him"

"Dr Tami Michele is wonderful. Takes the time to explain every step of the procedure and answer every question. Highly recommend her if you're looking for a doctor who listens and actually cares!"

"I was referred to Dr. LaGrand after some questionable ultrasound results...Dr. LaGrand took his time explaining all my options until he was sure I understood....Only having one small incision to recover from was wonderful. The surgery went well and I am healing wonderfully. I highly recommend Advanced OBGYN and Dr. LaGrand!"

"Dr. Michele is amazing. She is so caring and took so much time to explain and make me feel comfortable with my diagnosis and create a plan. I highly recommend this place. It’s a hidden gem!"
