Women’s Health Services
Our services encompass everything from routing checkups, preventative care,
surgery and emergency services. Women of all ages can receive high quality
Obstetrics – 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 health plan.
We offer Pap smears, birth control, surgery, abnormal period treatment
and menopause services. Your needs and desires are carefully listened to.
4-D Ultrasounds – We utilize a state-of-the-art 4-D gynecological ultrasound device to provide
clear pictures of a developing child. There are advanced forms of ultrasounds
allow parents to see what their baby looks like before it is born.
Bone density testing – Start treating osteoporosis before an injury occurs. There are rarely
early symptoms of osteoporosis, so you may want to schedule bone density
tests every few years to ensure you have not developed the disease.
Essure – You can receive a non-surgical, permanent form of birth control through
a sterilization process called Essure. This is a highly effective birth
control technique that doctors have strongly endorsed for the last 5 years.
Keep in mind that Essure is not reversible, only have the procedure if
you are absolutely certain it is right for you.
Hydro-thermal ablation (HTA) – Excessive uterine bleeding effects more than 2.5 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 includes everything
from condoms and diaphragms, to more long term methods like contraceptives
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.
