Gynecologist (female) for young adult

My early-20s daughter needs a gynecologist.  She's gone to Planned Parenthood in the past; however, she's having menstrual cycle issues, and we both agree she should move beyond PP right now.  Must be female.  Preferably young; a woman of color a plus, but not a must. We're not Kaiser members. Thanks in advance!

I 100% recommend Dr. Yevette Gentry. She is my 20 yo duaghters doctor and couldn't be more amazing.

I see Dr. Angelyn Thomas at Sutter Health East Bay (I see her in her office on Milvia, she also sees patient in their Orinda office). She is a Black woman (it was also important to me to have a woman of color OBGYN) and I have seen her since I was in my mid 20s (I am over 40 now).  She is an incredibly competent provider and I have trusted her with my life on more than one occasion. I've seen her for period issues, abnormal bleeding issues, pregnancy and postpartum, and a few other things - she has been stellar in each situation and is also very responsive over their messaging system.  Cannot say enough good things about Dr. Thomas.

I highly recommend Dr. Lilia Lizano. She has been my gynecologist since 2004. She's delivered my children -- there were complications involved in both deliveries and she was terrific throughout -- but I'm writing this because of how she helped me through a medical condition I developed several years later. She is wonderful and caring and she considers the patient as a whole person. She is also a woman of color. She has offices in Berkeley and in Hercules. I can't say enough good things about her! I actually look forward to my annual visits with her, which I could say of no other gynecologist before her.
