Recommended Physicians

We receive many requests for doctor referrals that specialize in women’s health. Our Recommended Physicians program allows our community to recommend their provider to others. Our team then verifies each referral and lists them here for you!

This is not a list of personal referrals from Dr. Haver but a collection of individual submissions from women worldwide who have had exceptional experiences with their healthcare providers. The physicians on this list are not associated with The ‘Pause Life and may offer differing advice.

“Dr. Adam Wray offered me anesthesia for an endometrial biopsy after I had researched the procedure and looked at many reviews on the procedure and found that many women found the procedure barbaric and extremely painful.”

“Dr. Gupta‘s clinic provides affordable healthcare to women in the New York area and Los Angeles. I love her office because it’s affordable care for women and is there if you need to go last minute.

Adrienne Rasbach

OB/GYN

“I transferred to Dr. Rasbach’s practice after my former OBGYN retired. This also coincided with both the pandemic and me going through menopause. She worked with me for 6 months to get my hormones right, both virtually and in person, always responding promptly and listening to my symptoms to find the right combination. I can’t recommend her enough; she is kind, thorough, and really listens to you.”

Dr.

Alexis Lipton

MD

OB/GYN

“During my menopause journey I developed Lichen Sclerosus of the Vulva. It’s not rare during meno but of course not alot of studies and research. I was treated with an aggressive amount of Clobetesol, steroid cream which gave me Cushing’s Syndrome for 4.5 years and my doctor refused to acknowledge the obvious physical and mental changes. I switched to Dr. Lipton. Dr. L had awesome results with other women like me by using the Mona Lisa Laser. 4 sessions later I have my Vulva anatomy back and I no longer have Cushing’s. She treated me with compassion, sympathy and such amazing care. The procedures were covered with just a $20 copay per visit. Get help!”

Dr.

Alexis Michopoulos

MD

Family Medicine

“Dr. Michopoulos is unlike any doctor you’ve ever seen. Rather than treating the symptoms, she persistently asks “why” to get to the root cause(s) of any problem. She functions like a co-detective in the work of discovering what is going on with your unique ecosystem. Dr. Michopoulos holds her patients to a high standard and works just as hard as her patients to arrive at the most effective treatments and solutions. She is truly amazing to work with and undoubtedly can assist anyone in solving their issues and/or reaching their health goals.”

Dr.

Amber Shamburger

OB/GYN

“I’ve been a patient of Friendswood Women for over 15 yrs. Dr. Shamburger and the other providers have always exceeded my expectations. All of the providers are easy to talk to and I feel like they have my best interest at heart. They take the time to listen and make sure all your concerns are addressed before you leave. The short wait time upon arrival is a huge plus, too. I’m in and out for my well woman exams in an hour or less. Going to the doctor has never been so easy. Wish all providers were as pleasant to see as Friendswood Women.”

Andrea Bushaw

CNP, WHNP

Nurse Practitioner

“I am mid-50s and was experiencing multiple menopause symptoms. A visit to my primary doctor for my annual wellness exam in 2021 left me feeling like I had very few options, so I researched other providers. My first visit to Minnesota Women’s Care was in May of 2022 where I met with Andrea Bushaw. She listened to all of my concerns and laid out the potential HRT options available for my consideration. A full battery of blood work was run to determine a baseline for my hormone levels so that I could make an informed decision about my preferred treatment plan. I truly feel like I have a provider who is invested in helping me live my best life!”
