ur Services

Our practice is devoted solely to the care of females from the aspect of obstetrics, reproductive endocrinology, infertility, office and operative gynecology. For problems outside our specialty we will work closely with your family physician, internist, psychiatrist, etc. If your medical problems fall into one of these fields and you do not have a physician, we will assist you in finding an appropriate specialist or general family doctor.

Obstetrical Care: Our services include complete obstetrical care including prenatal care, delivery and postpartum care. A family physician or pediatrician of your choice will be notified to care for your newly delivered infant. During your hospitalization, one of our patient relations nurses will visit and discuss in detail, the information you need to care for yourself postpartally. We strive to treat each patient as a unique individual and tailor instructions to your needs.

Gynecologic Care: Approximately one-half of our practice is devoted to the gynecologic care of females. This care is limited to problems of the pelvic organs, breasts, hormones, and endocrine glands. We are all diplomats of the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology and perform our own gynecologic surgery. Two of our physicians are always present at all major surgeries. We provide a wide range of preventive care, as well as medical and surgical management of infertility, endometriosis and a wide range of major gynecologic surgical services.

Patient Education: We are very proud of the unique service provided by our clinic through our Patient Relations Nurses. These nurses arrange appointments with surgical patients preoperatively, in which the patients are informed with a step-by-step approach of what to expect before, during and after their surgeries. We are one of the few practices that offer this extended time for communication, especially preoperatively, with our patients.

Women's Clinic Laboratory: The Women's Clinic laboratory has met all criteria for Laboratory Accreditation by COLA, a national health care accreditation organization. Accreditation is given only to laboratories that apply rigid standards of quality in day-to-day operations, demonstrate continued accuracy in the performance of proficiency testing, and pass a rigorous on-site laboratory survey. The Women's Clinic laboratory has earned COLA accreditation as a result of a long-term commitment to provide quality service to their patients.

COLA is a nonprofit, physician-directed organization promoting quality and excellence in medicine and patient care through programs of voluntary education, achievement, and accreditation.

We have also recently opened a video tape library where patients may receive further information on topics ranging from endometriosis to pap smears to major and minor surgeries of various types.
