Fibroids - need a good doctor

Good morning. I am new to this forum and was hoping that someone could help me.
I have four fibroids that are causing me major pelic and back pain. I went to one specialist and she recommended we just wait a few months and see what happens? I went to a second one and she wants to immediately remove my uterus. I am not prepared to do this. The fibroids I have are all under 5 cm in length and my uterus is healthy..
Can anyone recommend a doctor that I could see that does minimally invasive surgery for fibroids and who does not just want to perform a hysterectomy? I live in the Germantown area.
Please help. Many thanks!

Fibroids - need a good doctor

Look into the speciality of Interventional Radiology for fibroids. Your fibroids will shrink to virtually nothing. Watch and wait is not a good idea in my opinion as the fibroids will most likely grow. I've never understood this suggestion. My huge fibroid has shrunk over 90% thanks to UAE. Highly, highly recommended!
