Looking for RN for yearly pap, check-up

June 2002

Does anyone have an OB/GYN RN that they love' I'm looking for someone in the Berkeley/Oakland area, or SF. I have looked on the website for past OB/GYN recommendations, but they are aimed at people interested in pregnancy-related issues, so recommendations are generally for doctors. I just want someone to do my annual pap, and I specifically want an RN (NOT an MD), and a woman. I would also like someone who does not mind writing prescriptions for other (minor) health problems, so that I don't have to see a specialist. Thanks in advance.


Recommendations received: Hi, My OB/GYN is Carolyn Hand in Pinole (510)724-6800. She is a Nurse Practitioner and I saw her all through my pregnancy for routine visits even though she couldn't deliver our baby. She is a really warm and sensitive person and I always feel very comfortable seeing her. I highly recommend her. anon
