Women have unique healthcare needs, so our practice is centered around addressing those particular needs. Our providers care for women in all stages of life. An annual exam allows your provider to monitor your health, perform breast cancer screenings, pap smears, and address any changes in your lifestyle or menstrual cycle.

We provide limited primary care for our established GYN patients.
If you and your partner are ready to start planning a family, scheduling a preconception counseling appointment with your provider can be very helpful. During this appointment, you will discuss your family history, health and lifestyle habits, and any medications you are currently taking. Together with your provider, you will discuss if there is a need for genetic testing and any recommendations for prenatal vitamins. In addition, we will review your nutritional needs and how to safely exercise during pregnancy.
