So thankful I found Dr. South. I have suffered for 5 years with Pelvic pain. Doctors at the Cleveland Clinic recommended surgery twice and couldn't give me a reason why. Dr. South immediately knew what was wrong and that surgery would make my condition WORSE!

I love love this woman. Dr. South is the best by far. I have been dealing with IC for 5 yrs and she is the only one that has helped method far. If I could I would give her 20 stars

Dr. South is fantastic!!!!!
Very knowledgable with an excellent bedside manner. I'm happy to have her as my new physician.
I've already done a review for Dr. South & she is fantastic!! I also wanted to do a review for Kathy, who does the PFMR. Her personality, calm attitude, and skill level really made the visits easier for me. She is very good at what she does and it really shows!
The pelvic floor therapy worked to reduce my frequency of "leaking" accidents. Much less invasive than surgery. Would highly recommend trying the therapy.
I am so excited about how this will work. I have been reading about this for a year. First treatment done and Dr Smith is very professional! Thank you to the great staff too!
She made me feel very comfortable. Explained info well and very professional.
