Raised in North Carolina, I joined Capital Area OB/GYN in August 2022 after completing my residency in obstetrics and gynecology at East Carolina University in Greenville, NC. I completed my undergraduate degree at East Carolina University followed by a Master of Science at Wake Forest University and my medical training at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine.

My husband, Tommy, and I live with our two dogs Cam and Luke. I enjoy reading, running, and gardening in my free time.

I practice general obstetrics and gynecology with a special interest in minimally invasive surgery.

Patient Reviews

Gynecological Problem Visit


Annual Well Woman Exam

I arrived at 2:20pm for my 2:30 appointment. I waited in the waiting room (with no communication) until after 3:05. When I was taken back there was no apology for the delay, and then I was told there was not a room ready. Shortly after that the room was ready, but then I waited another 20 minutes before the doctor came in (so did not see her until over an hour after my appointment). If I showed up late to my appointment I would not have been seen. If somebody could have called and said things were running behind, I could have worked longer and come in later for my appointment rather than wasting my time waiting, with no communication from staff as to the delay or expected time frame.

All the midwives are great and this visit was no exception. All my questions and concerns were addressed and answered

It was just a routine exam. Fortunately I didn’t have any problems/unusual symptoms to discuss. Wait time is always long and the appointment always feels rushed.

I like that the wait time was minimal and Dr. Powell was informative about each thing we would be doing.

As soon as I walked through the door everyone was so kind & professional. I did not have to wait long before I was brought back. Doctor Richardson was no different. She spent time to talk with me about my health history.

I have been a patient of Dr. Grana's for over 20 years now. She knows my personal history well as I had breast cancer in 2011. We moved further away but I hope to be able to continue on seeing her. She is very kind and thorough.

Annual Well Woman Exam

Check in was quick; however, I sat for 40 minutes in the exam room before I was seen. The exam was quick and I had fantastic care, but the wait inside the room has been extremely long the past few visits.
