What to Expect Regarding Gynecologic Care

Thank you for selecting our practice for your gynecologic care.

I will meet with you during your periodic gyn checkup and other scheduled visits. Please keep in mind, however, in an emergency, your physician of choice may not be in the office. Should this occur, another licensed practitioner in our group will be happy to see you. Be assured, in such circumstances he or she has access to your medical records and is able to provide you with personal, appropriate care.
Our patients are important to us and you can always expect that your medical needs will be managed by compassionate and skilled professionals. During your preventive visit, I will review your medical history as well as the current guidelines and recommendations for various screening tests. Based on your age and personal medical history they will discuss the benefits of mammography, HPV screening tests, routine pap tests and bone density scans.
Stay in touch with your primary care physician
It is important to point out that, for optimum care, your gynecologist is no substitute for a primary care physician. You need both and I encourage you to establish a relationship with a general practitioner or internist. He or she is your best resource for non-gynecologic health issues. If you do not have a primary care physician, I will gladly provide the names of several qualified doctors in the area.
Minimally Invasive Procedures
The hallmark of our practice is minimally invasive procedures that prevent or reduce hospital interactions. With extensive training in operative hysteroscopy and minimally invasive procedures, we are expert at hysteroscopic approaches for the diagnosis and treatment of gynecologic pathology. This includes patients who present with abnormal bleeding which may be related to polyps, fibroids, and neoplasms. For abnormal uterine bleeding we perform NovaSure Endometrial Ablation, which reduces abnormal and painful bleeding up to 90%.
For permanent birth control we utilize Essure tubal occlusion device. These procedures offer an alternative to more traditional hospital methods of treatment, but are based on your personal medical history to safely qualify for office-based procedure. Since there are no incisions or extensive general anesthesia the recovery time is shorter and there is less post-procedure pain. Specific information regarding these procedures is provided in the list of patient education links below. Our physicians and PAs can discuss these options at your visit.
