More Notes and Testimonials From Our Patients

ThermiVa Testimonials

“I’ve had ThermiVa and ThermiSmooth treatments in the office. Jordan, the clinician, was wonderful – the procedure was very comfortable. I’ve had great results with ThermiVa improving some slight leakage and also dryness. And now I can see that ThermiSmooth is really smoothing the skin and wrinkles around my eyes. Really excited about the results!!” Ann L.

“It works, it really does. There is no down time and it is totally worth it. I had already done a lot of research on ThermiVa. I didn’t have very many questions or concerns. Dr. Litrel was wonderful and explained everything at my first visit. The urinary stress incontinence I was experiencing improved drastically with the very first treatment. I noticed significant improvement in the way things looked which was a nice added bonus. Cherokee Women’s staff is awesome. Very caring, concerning and very professional! I highly recommend this GYN office.”

“I had a 95% improvement with the stress incontinence I was experiencing. I just really wanted to try this to see if it really worked so I could avoid invasive surgery. I also experienced some tightening and an improvement with the physical appearance. Try it! It worked for me!”

“You absolutely have to try ThermiVa! It’s amazing! It’s improved vaginal tightness and sexual relations. My sex life has gotten out of this world awesome! I’ll get a sensation in my vagina and start fantasizing about sex and can’t get home to my husband soon enough! You will not regret it! Worth every penny!”

“Definitely improved the leakage by 95% too and gave me a little more tightness in the vaginal area and overall appearance. I say go for it! It’s non-invasive and I saw improvement with my 1st treatment!”

“Lubrication increased and definitely improved firmness and tightness.”

“My urinary incontinence was instantly resolved and so was the vaginal laxity. I now have better sexual response during intercourse. Do it!”

“My biggest concern was urinary stress incontinence and also, things with age, had become looser. The urinary incontinence was completely gone after the first treatment and it definitely tightened things up, making sex much more enjoyable. Definitely do it! It’s the best thing I have ever done.”

“I’ve already been telling my girlfriends about ThermiVa! My advice is do it, do it, do it! It’s so worth it!  ThermiVa was new so I wasn’t sure what to expect but it really tightened things up and helped with the appearance, which I was so happy to see. It also reduced the days and flow of my monthly cycle.”

“ThermiVa definitely took care of the vaginal dryness. And an unexpected benefit that was amazing is that it improved the look of things. Much tighter and more tone. Go today! You will not regret it! It’s the best decision I’ve made.”

“ThermiVa helped significantly with urinary leakage and I can tell things are tighter. Dr. Litrel and his staff and the nurse who did my treatments were all very professional. It definitely helped me.”

“ThermiVa stopped the bladder leakage and significantly improved the pain with intercourse. I also like that it’s not invasive. I would definitely recommend ThermiVa.”

“ThermiVa is well worth the time and money. I’ve already been recommending it to my family and friends. I experienced definite tightening and I had no more urinary leakage after the very first treatment. I had also been experiencing vulvar itching but there wasn’t a medication that helped. The itching went away immediately after the first ThermiVa treatment. And I was worried that it would be painful but there was absolutely no pain whatsoever.”

From the time I first got in contact with your office, things fell into place and went so smoothly! I’ve never experienced this kind of excellent service at any doctor’s office I’ve ever been to.

“My granddaughter uses Cherokee Women’s for her obstetrical care. She recommend that I see someone at Cherokee Women’s because I was so unhappy where I had been previously. I started doing some research, not on the computer, but by word off mouth, which was easy for me because I work with the public. All the feedback I received was positive so I made my appointment. When I walked through the door of your office – and you can call it whatever you choose, but I will call it divine intervention – I knew, even before I was seen, that I was in the right place. I saw Dr. James Haley. He LISTENED to me, he was COMPASSIONATE, he WENT OUT OF HIS WAY to ACCOMMODATE my needs, and the PROFESSIONALISM of the entire staff was outstanding. I appreciate a doctor being up front and honest with me, while showing respect for me as a person, and Dr. James Haley did that.” -Shirley W.

“Dr. Gandhi delivered my baby with a c-section. She is an excellent doctor. My baby is doing wonderful and I am feeling much better. Enjoying recovery at home with a happy baby!

I love it here. Jodi always makes me feel welcome as soon as I walk in, my doctors I see are great, and I can get in whenever I need too.

I love that staff, I used them all nine months and when Dr.Litrel had to do a emergency c section, he made me feel very comfortable, even thou I was terrified. He delivered my first son and I will definitely be using you guys for my second baby!! ” Jennifer H.

After putting surgery off for years I finally had to give in and had surgery at the end of 2013. Dr. Haley did a great job and the nurses were awesome!!” Highborn H.

Love Dr. Litrel and the entire team at CWHS! Thanks for doing such a great job!” Gina C.

The people at CWHS are amazing. Dr. Haley is a very good doctor.” Michelle T.

Dr Litrel is truly the greatest OB there is, when I found out I was having identical twins at my first OB appointment he eased my mind and insured me things would be ok since I had recently just had a miscarriage lost 2 months prior to becoming pregnant with my twins. On March 7, 2014 Dr. LITREL delivered my 2 healthy twin boys! I highly recommend him to anyone!” Camille C.

Dr. Litrel did both of my c-sections for my little girls and I couldn’t have been happier to have him for my doctor! Both cesareans went wonderful and I am so glad I was able to have such a great surgeon!” Kayla R.

Dr. Criglor made the decision on what doctor’s office we chose simple! He had the best bedside manner, answered every question or concern we had with confidence and talked me through my whole surgery. I don’t think I have ever had a doctor that was so tentative during such a hard pregnancy. Thanks for being so amazing!” Ali H.

Pregnant with my third child, I found myself in search for a new OB-GYN after my former doctor changed his focus and is no longer practicing OB-GYN. I remembered how well Dr. Litrel took care of my sister-in-law eight years ago when he delivered my niece. My decision to have Dr. Litrel as my OB-GYN was obvious and I am very pleased with this decision. My former dr was a sole practitioner so I was a little hesitant about being a part of a practice, but Dr Litrel does not make me feel like a number, but shows he truly cares – which makes my 45 minute drive worth it! The staff and other doctors I have met are just as wonderful! I am very grateful God led me to this office. Thank you for all you do!” Rachel B.

The experience I had with Dr. Haley and Dr. Litrel was by far the most amazing experience ever! They made my labor and delivery super laid back and really easy. I would definitely have them for our future babies! They made delivery so amazing for me that I look back and wish that I could do that part all over again… And how many woman can say they want to give birth over and over again? I can honestly say that I would thanks to Dr. Haley and Dr. Litrel!” Brittany Anne H.

“Dr. Haley, the nurses and the entire staff did an excellent job… I’ve recommended them to friends .. and I appreciate the team and their experience very much!!!” Lisa E.

“I love Cherokee Women’s. My midwife Dr. Hwang helped me and my son during my delivery and Dr. Hale. They are the best. Thank you Cherokee Women’s.” Amber N.

Dr.Litrel is a great doctor.” Christina W.

An amazing group of doctors, nurses, techs, and administrative staff. They are a rare find in the medical field!” Ashley G.

“…My husband and I want to thank you for the time you spent with us and the compassion you’ve shown since our first visit…”Jackie M.

“…It certainly has been surprising to find a staff who works so hard to make you feel at ease and confident you are associated with people who care about you personally.”Sandra A.

“Dr. Gandhi serviced my prenatal appointments, and I thoroughly appreciated how she listened to me and my body. Nothing unnatural was forced, which I believe helped in a very smooth delivery. She was always very upbeat and her excitement bubbled over. By the end of each visit, I was always smiling. Susan delivered my baby, and she did a wonderful job. She was very comforting and soothing. Again, I appreciate how she let my body naturally deliver the baby it its own time. This was a wonderful pregnancy and birthing experience.””Billi Roush

“…I just wanted to thank you for taking such good care of my wife recently. You made us feel like she is the most important patient in the world. Of course, to me she is. But you showed great dedication and care in her treatment.”John G.

“…I enjoyed my visit to Canton and your practice. The good chemistry among your staff is evident…”Karen C.

“Dr. Gandhi and her staff are concerned women who listen to you carefully to determine the best treatment option for you. She skillfully delivered two of my children after very difficult pregnancies. Throughout my pregnancies, she kept a very close eye on me and determined the need for a perinatologist in order to provide the best care for me and the baby. She took the time to understand the health issues that I was having and found ways to prevent further issues. Even after delivery she was a concerned and involved doctor. Dr. Gandhi is a real jewel, and a doctor who has her heart in what she does.”Lydia Laucella

“…I have so much to thank you for – I am healing, healthy, and very, very happy!…The experience at the hospital was also the best, the staff was perfection!”Janice S.

” Thank you so much for being so supportive during my first pregnancy! I have been three times and the staff is absolutely wonderful! They have always been very kind and make me feel very comfortable there. Thank you for being a wonderful team!” Tiffany E

Dr. Litrel was a fantastic doctor. I had my first exam with him, although at first I was skeptical about a male doctor for my GYN. But after I met him I’m glad I kept an open mind, and I couldn’t have dreamed up a better doctor. He cares about you as a person and not just a patient. The front desk ladies and the nurses were very friendly and it’s a great office, very clean and not intimidating. I highly recommend Cherokee Women’s Health.” Vick

“I first came to Cherokee Women’s with a GYN issue which Dr. Litrel helped me resolve very easily. When I became pregnant with my first child, it was an obvious choice that I would return to Cherokee Women’s. Dr. Litrel and his staff were wonderful. I wanted my birth experience to be as natural as possible and all of the providers worked with me to provide this. They were respectful of what I wanted, but also expert with their care. It was a wonderful combination. (Separately, I was also thrilled with Northside Cherokee – a small hospital with amazing patient care in their labor and delivery section. Comfy rooms, too!) I returned for care with my second pregnancy. Again, the doctors were excellent and respectful of how I wanted my delivery to be. When my labor stalled, Dr. Litrel took me in for a C-Section. This likely saved my newborn’s life as she had a complete knot in her umbilical cord that was undetected. I am SO grateful for Dr. Litrel’s excellent skill. Excellent office, excellent physicians!”Karen M.

“I have never been to a more caring, competent doctor. Dr. Gandhi is the only OB/GYN that has ever sat down with me prior to exam and talked to me. She then explained my concerns. No doctor has ever done that before, and usually they just talk over me. I truly feel that she is the best doctor I’ve ever had. I also love how welcoming the office is. Referrals will forever be made to Dr. Gandhi by me!”Jenny Meyers

“I recommend Cherokee Women’s Health Specialists to anyone seeking outstanding medical care. At the time that I became a patient of Cherokee Women’s, I was very frustrated because I had been to several physicians seeking a diagnosis for my symptoms and complaints. Several of my friends recommended Cherokee Women’s Health Specialists to me and I decided to seek yet another opinion. I felt very comfortable during my initial office visit, and truly appreciated the amount of time taken with me. I can honestly say that I am feeling so much better, and the best part is the peace of mind that I now have. I have the utmost respect for Dr. Litrel, and will always be grateful for their genuine concern for me. We are very fortunate to have this exceptional group of physicians in our community dedicated to women’s health and wellness.” Carol

“I have been a patient at Cherokee Women’s Health for over 10 years. I have recommended both Dr. Ghandi and Dr. Litrel to all of my friends. I did this because I am 100 percent thrilled with not only the medical I care I received, but also the level of professionalism and courtesy at the office. I feel like they take the time to listen to all that is going on in my life and treat me almost like a friend. They’re not the kind of doctors to just give you a pill and tell you to come back in two months. For both my problem visits, they really took the time to research and look into it and diagnose me correctly. I would and have highly recommended this practice to my friends, and I always hear that they recommend Dr. Litrel and Dr. Ghandi to their friends as well. I was just at the tennis courts the other day and one of my teammates was talking about how she went to three different doctors, until Dr. Litrel correctly diagnosed what was going on with her. I feel blessed that he has been my doctor. If you want to be treated with care and honesty, this is the place. I am so grateful to have found them.” Linda A.

“The doctors and nurses are very nice and caring. The care exceeds my expectations. I highly recommend them.” Rosalie R.

“I wish all doctors’ offices were as friendly and easy to use. I’ve known Dr. Litrel for more than a dozen years and have friends and colleagues who have been his patient, so when I was searching for a new physician, I turned to Cherokee Women’s Health Specialists. The new patient portal was phenomenal. Usually when you visit the doctor’s office, you have a list of questions written down or memorized, then either forget the list or are too nervous or overwhelmed to ask. The online form contained prompts that allowed me to enter my history – and any questions or concerns I had – then someone actually called me back to discuss it prior to my appointment! In dealing with Dr. Litrel and Dr. Ghandi, I have found all three to be personable and approachable while being extraordinarily professional. I highly recommend this practice!” Beth

“Dear Dr. Gandhi, picture this…. A little, old, gray haired lady with glasses feeling… anxious, unsure, thoughts a little confused and in comes a doctor who immediately makes the little, old lady comfortable, heard, understood, and offers advice about still working even when her friends think she should retire. Thanks for your doctoring way that make your patients feel better.” Mrs. E.

“I just wanted to say thank you to Susan Griggs for delivering my sweet baby girl yesterday!!! You did a great job Susan!! Thank you for everything!! And thank you to Cherokee Women’s for taking care of me while I was pregnant!” Amber M.

“Dr. Gandhi was kind and thorough as well as patient. The staff at Cherokee Women’s is always friendly and thorough with whatever I’m trying to find out. This makes me comfortable.” Katie H

“Dr. Litrel was a fantastic doctor. I had my first exam with him, although at first I was skeptical about a male doctor for my GYN. But after I met him I’m glad I kept an open mind, and I couldn’t have dreamed up a better doctor. He cares about you as a person and not just a patient. The front desk ladies and nurses were very friendly and it’s a great office, very clean and not intimidating. I highly recommend Cherokee Women’s Health.”
