Very thorough. Genuinely listened and answered all my questions and responded to each and every concern.

Dr. Ahrendt and her staff provide the type of medical care by which all other providers should strive to emulate. they set the standard for quality. They are all professional, caring and kind. Dr. Ahrendt spent as much time as I needed to explain a complicated issue and she made me feel comforted and less anxious about my upcoming procedure.
