“I have always had a strong connection with women, and pursuing a career in OBGYN was a natural way for me to promote women’s empowerment”, says Dr. Shannon.

Before joining Women First, Dr. Shannon performed OB/GYN work including gynecologic surgeries, labor and delivery, emergency consultations, and annual wellness exams. Having worked with patients of all ages, Dr. Shannon is particularly passionate about providing care for adolescent and post-menopausal women.

Dr. Miller is my doctor and I can't say enough good about her and any of the staff I have interacted with. I highly recommend them.

I love Dr. Brown. Hands down, she is an Angel on Earth. I literally would not be here today without her. She always tells me exactly what I need to hear, she stands up for her patients, and has believed in me when I don’t believe in myself. Woman’s health isn’t just gynecological. It’s mental. It’s having someone there to hold your hand when you’re alone. And Dr. Brown continues to hold my hand and I can’t thank her enough. I will forever be indebted to her and will love her forever. I will miss her incredibly and deeply when she retires. Thank you Dr. Brown, for everything. -Tiffany Enriquez
