I came to Dr. Intili on referral when the gynecologist I had been a patient to retired in 2021. I found Dr. Intili and her staff to be cordial and very professional. After i began to follow in her care she suggested a test and re-examination in 6 months. My uterus had thickened lining and she recommended a procedure to investigate this condition. A number of pre-tests were required by the hospital. Dr. Intili and her staff walked me through this process and the histoscopy was performed. I am fortunate that it is not benign. She explained all to me, and provided good follow up instructions and guidance . Dr. Intili is bright, personable , and very competent in her chosen profession. I intend to continue with her, and will certainly recommend her to my friends as opportunities arise.

She is thorough and personal in her care, remembering our concerns and needs whether in the office or on the labor & delivery floor at the hospital! She goes above & beyond for her patients and I am always happy to be in her care!

Dr. Intili and her staff have offered excellent care during my recent hysterectomy and follow up appointments. Doctor has always treated my complicated case with the best knowledge and technology. At the same time of procedure I was nervous and worried about the hospital stay and she was incredibly caring ! I never doubted her care plan. Dr. Intili’s staff and the nurses at the St-Joe’s were so kind and patient with me as I healed. The front desk attendants have been so wonderful on the phone as I made appointments and asked questions. From start to finish, it’s been a great experience and I highly recommend Dr. Intili and her staff for gynecological care!

Dr. Intili has been an amazing Dr. She delivered our first child and is always so thorough. She has always treated us with the upmost care and respect. I would go to follow ups with my child(daughter #1) and Intili is always so caring to me and my daughter. We became pregnant again and Dr. Intili is my number one Dr, even now with child number 2, Dr. Intili is so kind and understanding if I need to bring both girls with me to appointments she is by far the best dr caring human being we’ve met, and honestly does anything at my time of the day or night to resume her patients and to make sure we always had her there. Thank you so much for being you and respecting our family. You are an example of what a good doctor and human should be like.

Dr. Intili was referred to me when Dr. Khather retired. I wasn’t so sure about the change, but I gave her try. I’m so glad that I did. There is a level of empathy that Dr. Intili provides that adds to the thoroughness of her practice. I would imagine that it would be difficult to meet expectations that a lot of patients have from Dr. Khather. But she has surpassed mine.

Dr. Intili and her staff were very helpful in getting surgery schedule very quickly. They also called and checked up on me while in recovery. Everyone is friendly and caring. I highly recommend Dr. Intili and her staff. They are the best office I have ever been to. 
I’m so happy I found them.

I have been a patient of Dr. Intili’s for over 29 years. While she is an amazing physician and surgeon she is also one of the most caring and compassionate people I have met.
