OB Guide is a newsletter for OBs nationwide and one of their editors is my aunt, also the maiden issue's Featured MD. Whenever people ask me for any recommendations for an OB-Gyne I recommend her to them without a second thought. She graduated Summa Cum Laude from UST and has been a topnotch doctor eversince. Her being a wonderful Tita has nothing to do with it. Honest ;)
