Our gynecologists provide compassionate care for women through all stages of life. From routine care to rare conditions, our doctors have seen and treated any condition that you may face.
Choosing a gynecologist at the Women & Infants Center means you receive the latest in preventive medicine during well visits (regular physical exams). You also have access to national leaders in gynecology who use the newest treatments and procedures to treat gynecological conditions.
We structure our care around a patient-centered approach that includes:
Patients come to us with various conditions and differing goals for their health. That’s why our team spends time getting to know you and your needs. Working closely with you, we use our clinical experience and the latest research to develop personalized care plans.
Shared decision making
In women’s healthcare, you may have multiple treatment options. We encourage you to actively participate in the process with your care team so that you understand all your options.
Your doctor will discuss the “why” behind the best options for your care. The result is a path forward that you can feel confident about.
Care built on relationships
When you come to the Women & Infants Center for gynecologic care, you’ll work closely with the same familiar faces from diagnosis through treatment and follow-up care. Although most patients choose one doctor to see for general appointments, any of our doctors can see you in an emergency.
