I want to compliment Dr. Kathy King and her staff. I have heard many good things about Dr. King from coworkers so I decided to choose her for my OB care. She far exceeded all my expectations. She took the time to answer all of our questions and made us feel very comfortable and confident in her ability to care for me and my baby.
