Alice is a phenomenal provider. She listened attentively to my needs and provided outstanding care by sharing possible options that made me feel comfortable to think through to make an informed and sound decision.

My provider is always caring, respectful, and LISTENS to my concerns and needs. I highly recommend her to anyone who might be a bit timid to have an OB, do yearly women’s exams, and may feel nervous around healthcare providers. She makes you feel comfortable and is a great Nurse Midwife!

Alice is amazing. I really like her and all the midwives. I used a midwife for all four of my pregnancies and I am so glad I did. I felt like a midwife was great emotional as well as medical support. Alice is good about easing your concerns through pregnancy, Pap smears, infections, etc. She is amazing.

Alice takes the time to get to know her patients. I don’t feel rushed or that I’m taking up too much of her time. She really listens and offers suggestions/ support/plan for my healthcare. I moved 2 hours away but will continue to come back because of how comfortable Alice makes me feel. One can feel very vulnerable when sitting in an exam room, but Alice makes it very easy to be able to discuss any concerns I may have.

This was my first time coming to the OB/GYN department and I had an amazing experience! The woman I saw today was very friendly and I felt like she knew what she was talking about and explained everything to me without making me feel like she was in a hurry or anything. I am happy I made the switch to start coming here.

Alice May has always been a people-first person. I absolutely “enjoy” going to my lady appointment because she is incredibly friendly and seemingly cares about me and my life. The actual exam is the shortest part of my visit as she wants to make sure I am comfortable and filled with knowledge about my body.
