Gynecology & Obstetrics

Gynecology encompasses all the phases of a women's life from pediatric to geriatric.  Our practice believes that it is not just about the health of the female reproductive system, but the health of the whole woman, body and mind.

Obstetric Care is approached in a team manner by all providers in the office in order to provide continuity of care throughout your pregnancy.  We believe our group approach is superior because our patient will experience their labor and delivery with a familiar physician who they have bonded with through their entire pregnancy.

Ultrasound is an important diagnostic tool.  Our practice maintains two high-tech ultrasound machines that are always available 5 days a week for gynecological evaluation.  We have a staff of qualified ultrasound technicians and consult with a staff of board certified radiologists to interpret results as necessary.

Our obstetric patients are able to view their ultrasound in real-time via television monitor.

 

The gynecological services we offer include women's wellness exams focused on strategies to maintain a healthy lifestyle.  We offer family planning, a teen program, menopausal evaluation and management, hormone replacement therapy which includes bioidenticals.  Our doctors are accomplished surgeons who are trained in minimally invasive and more complicated surgery involving the female reproductive tract.  We also specialize in management of abnormal pap smear and colposcopy.

Our obstetrical care includes a comprehensive initial visit by a Nurse Practitioner which includes invaluable information on what to expect throughout the pregnancy.  Diagnostic testing is conducted right in our office and includes full ultrasound evaluation for 1st trimester genetic screening, 2nd trimester targeted ultrasound, and growth evaluation.  We also perform our own glucose testing and urinalysis. 

 

High risk pregnancies are managed in consultation with board certified high risk physicians when necessary.  Our practice reviews our high risk cases as a group on a monthly basis to ensure thoroughness and continuity of care.

One of our physicians is on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week,  ensuring that your baby is delivered by our practice.
