The wait for Doctor Dauphin may be long at times but I must say it is completely worth it. I have had 5 different ob-gyns since moving to california in 1985. 2 were male, 3 were female. My problem with the males was that i felt uncomfortable discussing certain things with them because I felt they could not truly understand what I was feeling. The other two females I visited prior to Dr. Dauphin were professional but impersonal. Dr. Dauphin is a doctor that is hard to find. She has experience as a doctor, mother and friend. She might be late sometimes. Well can you blame her? Doctors have their own lives too right? The one time I waited for her for over an hour was the time I found out she had been in the hospital preforming emergency surgery on another patient. Dr. Dauphin has saved my life. I had a tumor which she skillfully removed. I recently went to her office and was pleased to find her old staff members had been replaced with a higher level staff.
