Dr. Trest delivered both my daughters. I couldn’t have asked for a better doctor! I was a little nervous with both since I had experienced a miscarriage before I got pregnant with my first daughter. Dr. Trest always made me feel comfortable asking her anything and voicing my concerns/worries. She never played them off and always did what was needed to set my mind at ease.
