Our services include:

  • Gynecologist Exam: This exam typically involves a brief discussion of your overall health, followed by the main parts of an annual gynecologist exam: a breast exam, a pelvic exam and a Pap test. Your gynecologist doctor may also feel your throat to see if you your thyroid is enlarged and listen to your heart and lungs. Urine and blood samples may be taken if deficiencies or abnormalities are suspected.
  • Routine Obstetrics Exams: Generally, pregnant women will visit their obstetrics doctor monthly for about the first seven months, for blood tests, blood pressure tests, and tracking the baby's movement and growth. The visits increase in frequency during the last 8-10 weeks to delivery. An obstetrics doctor also cares for patients experiencing high-risk pregnancies.
  • Pediatric Gynecology: Adolescent girls who are going through puberty and approaching menstruation, or who have started menstruating, benefit from gynecological exams.
  • Family Planning: An obstetrics doctor or gynecologist doctor can help families with pregnancy planning, offering assistance with issues ranging from infertility to contraception.
  • Menopausal and Geriatric Gynecology: A gynecologist doctor sees patients whose bodies are changing as they move through and beyond menopause, conducting bone density and other tests, and providing guidance and treatment for issues like hot flashes.
  • Gynecological Surgery: Millions of women undergo gynecological procedures each year, some that are considered fairly routine and minor (like dilation and curettage, or D&C, which is used to diagnose or treat abnormal uterine bleeding) while others, like hysterectomies (removal of the uterus) are more extensive.
