Dr. Tourtelot embodies all that I want in a physician. She is kind, personable, efficient, knowledgable, genuine, calm, collaborative. I just wish she had been my doctor for years past as I have endured some damaging experiences in contact with a different GYN affiliated with the UR. I feel safe with her.
