GynoFilter: Please help me find a good, compassionate, and knowledgable gynecologist in the Bay Area (preferably East Bay but will travel. Preferably female but am flexible).

I'm new to the Bay Area, and would be very grateful for some recs for a good gynecologist. As the ladies out there no doubt know, a good gyno is hard to find.
I'd especially appreciate those recs for doctors who have been able to diagnose and treat somewhat complicated cases with expertise and compassion. The specs here are that I've gone from having two periods a month to none at all, gained 20 pounds in 5 months, and was diagnosed two years ago with premenopausal osteoporosis (I'm only 32). These details intersect in what I have no doubt are all kinds of intricate ways with a number of other complicated medical problems
The kicker, of course, is to find a doctor who is also covered by my insurance plan, is taking new patients (many primary care physicians and gynecologists are not), and has an open appointment sometime before the next presidential election. But in the meantime I'd just be happy having some names to work with.
