Services We Offer

Our services encompass everything from routine checkups and preventive care to surgery. We treat women of all ages.

Overview of women’s health services:

  • Obstetrics It’s important to receive excellent prenatal care from doctors you trust during your pregnancy. Obstetrics covers everything from child rearing classes, labor and delivery, postpartum education and more to make your birthing experience easier.
  • Gynecology Regular gynecological exams are an important part of your healthcare. We offer Pap smears, birth control, surgery, abnormal period treatment and menopause services. Your needs and desires are carefully listened to.
  • 4D ultrasound We utilize a state-of-the-art 4D gynecological ultrasound device to provide clear pictures of a developing child. This advanced form of ultrasound allows parents to see what their baby looks like before it is born.
  • Hydrothermal ablation (HTA) Excessive uterine bleeding affects more than 10 million women every year. HTA is a minimally invasive, long-term treatment for abnormal periods. This treatment can completely prevent periods for some women, and significantly reduce bleeding for others.
  • Birth control We educate patients on various forms of birth control and help them find the method that best meets their needs. Our birth control services include everything from condoms and diaphragms to more long-term methods like intrauterine devices (IUDs) and sterilization.
  • Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) Menopause causes a major shift in a woman’s hormones, which can be difficult and painful to adjust to. We help to remedy the side effects of menopause with medication and medical techniques designed to improve quality of life.
  • Urogynecology - These are issues related to the pelvic floor and bladder. This includes overactive bladders, weak pelvic muscles, reproductive issues, and bladder or rectal incontinence (the loss of control when going to the bathroom). Urogynecologists perform evaluations, diagnose and treat patients.
