I began seeing Dr. Pollycove for annual gynecological exams after my daughter suggested her several years ago. Ricki was understanding, sympathetic, and much more knowledgeable about menopausal issues than my previous gynecologists. She has a warm smile, calming nature, is open to questions, and offers invaluable opinions, resources and a pocketful of referrals. Her treatment plans are individualized and changed with changes in my body. It’s wonderful to have a gynecologist who understands female perspectives and whose passion is treating the whole person. I look forward to every appointment with her. A few years ago, during a regular exam Ricki felt a small anomaly in my left breast that was not detected by a mammogram a few months earlier. During the storm that developed in the following months, Ricki was ROCK SOLID!! She referred me to a wonderful surgeon and oncologist, and was my advocate throughout the following treatment. Three cheers for Ricki! I will be grateful to her for the rest of my life. – CB
