“When you meet with us here at Celebration ObGyn, our goal is to give you a chance to ask questions and learn about your health (body, mind & spirit) in a safe, open and nonjudgmental environment. Growing up can be scary and sometimes you do not know who or what to ask. No question is silly and all questions are welcomed! When we have facts about our health, we then have a solid foundation to grow and learn together to help you make the best decisions you can about your overall health.” Suzette C. Boyette, MSN, APRN
