Why Choose Cherokee Women’s Health

Patients of Cherokee Women’s Health have offered their testimonials in hundreds of online reviews. They are often extremely enthusiastic about why they choose us for their OB/GYN care. But while they may have satisfaction in common, their reasons for choosing Cherokee Women’s Health are surprisingly diverse.

Cherokee Women’s Health has been voted Top OB/GYN and Surgeons in the Towne Lake, Woodstock and Canton areas year after year.


Top 3 Reasons Patients Choose Us

A quick survey of patient reviews turns up three main reasons for choosing us:

1. Personal Relationships

At the top of the list for patients is personal relationships. Patients who feel the personal connection with their provider tend to feel relieved, happy, and most of all, grateful. Often, they feel this is the first health care provider who has ever listened to them. You will hear the word ‘listen’ again and again in their testimonials.

“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 my exam and really listened to me. No doctor has ever done that before. Usually they just talk over me. I truly feel that she is the best doctor I’ve ever had. Referrals will forever be made to Dr. Gandhi by me!”

2. Staff

Patient satisfaction, however, is not limited to appreciation for the doctors only. Very often patients also mention our wonderful staff.

“Every staff member I encounter treats me with care and respect,” says Susan W. “From the awesome ladies at the front, the ultrasound technician and the nurses, to all the doctors at this practice.”

Jackie G. emphasized the approachable demeanor of the staff by sharing, “I wish all doctors’ offices were as friendly and easy to use. I have found everyone at Cherokee Women’s to be personable and approachable while being extraordinarily professional. I highly recommend this practice!”

Yet another patient shared that visiting the doctor can be a nerve-wracking experience. The fact that the staff helped make her comfortable and calm was most important to her.

“I cannot say enough good things about everyone at this office! I had to have a biopsy and was extremely nervous. Everyone in this office took extra care to ensure I was comfortable every step of the way. They were not only polite but were understanding and reassuring. There are no words to express my gratitude.”

3. Expertise

Cherokee Women’s Health is unique among OB/GYN practices in the Southeast, with three OB/GYNs double board-certified in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery (FPMRS, also known as urogynecology). Because of this, our practice is a resource of expertise on a wide range of women’s health issues. In 2018, patients from 27 states visited Cherokee Women’s Health.  

“I have been going to Dr. James Haley for many years and he is an incredible doctor. He did a very complicated bladder surgery on me and literally changed my life. He is the best surgeon and I recommend him to everyone. He is always very nice and kind to me and listens very well. Thank you, Dr. Haley, for all you’ve done for me.”

Tammy R.

One patient, Nancy, described her frustration after visiting other practices trying to receive an accurate diagnosis. “When 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. I’m so glad they did because 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. We are very fortunate to have this exceptional group of physicians in our community who are dedicated to women’s health and wellness.”

OB/GYNs Receive the Most Training for Women’s Healthcare

Pediatricians and general practitioners certainly have their valuable purpose for patients. They are responsible for the general overall health of children, men and women, but are not necessarily specialists in any one area.

Many people do not realize the extensive training that OB/GYNs undergo for becoming an expert in women’s health, becoming board-certified, and the extra training that is required each year to maintain certification and staying current on the latest women’s health issues.

OB/GYNs undergo 4 years of undergraduate school in college for their bachelor’s degree, 4 years of medical school to become a medical doctor, and 4 years of residency in obstetrics and gynecology. Many have further training in a subspecialty or for certification in certain surgical techniques.

All physicians undergo comprehensive written and oral testing for board certification, along with standard physician training, and then each year complete additional continuing education hours and testing, which are required to maintain certification.  

Offering a Wide Range of Women’s Health Services

Patients at Cherokee Women’s find expertise that also extends to the basic foundation of everyday health. Along with OB/GYN care, Cherokee Women’s also offers comprehensive care in the fields of urogynecology, vaginal rejuvenation, cosmetic services and medical weight loss.

When it comes to why women choose Cherokee Women’s Health for their healthcare, there are many. But no matter the reason, the common denominator is always a happy patient!
