Gynecologist

I am new to the East Bay. I am looking for a gynecologist and I am in my 40s so need to have a mammogram. Can you recommend someone you had a great experience with? I have PPO health insurance so I can't go to a Kaiser or Brown and Toland doctor but most others should work. Thank you!

I really like Dr. Lilia Lizano, Women's Group for Health, 2999 Regent St, #201, Berkeley (510) 204-0965.  She took over the practice after my previous OB/GYN moved to Kaiser.  She is kind, understated and thorough.  Part of her standard of care in an annual check up is to palpitate the neck.  She found a lump in my neck and ordered an ultrasound.  Turns out it was thyroid cancer.  Had it not been for her, it could have been years before it was detected. (I don't have a good PCP.)  So I am forever grateful to her.  I am happy to speak to you about her, if you'd like.

I've only seen her a couple of times, but I like Pantea Pahlavan in Berkeley. She's with Sutter.

Hello, for me there's only John T Armstrong...He uses an ultra sound for high-up pelvic exams.  As I have fibroids, this is a god-send.  No more pain.  Also he uses the ultra sound for breasts after palpating manually (or rather wo-manly)  Easy to talk with, allows plenty of time for each patient.  Dr. Armstrong is an important reason I don't want to leave this area & go back to Texas-- where he's from too :))

   Now-- it is an hour drive to get to him-- in Napa.  But plenty of parking; office is right off the freeway.  You could stop and have some wine before or after.

oops, looks like I can't paste his web page info.here-- so please google him in Napa.

Dr. Arzou Ahsan is personable, kind, thorough, and exceptionally intelligent.

I recommend Dr. Zhang at Sutter on Dwight/ Milvia in Berkeley.
