Obstetrical care is the medical practice of caring for women and their baby’s health through several stages of motherhood, beginning with prenatal care and ending with postnatal care.
Gynecological services include a wide range of preventive care services such as pap smears, STI testing, pelvic exams, ultrasounds, and blood work.
Gynecologic surgery is surgery on any part of a woman’s reproductive system, including the vagina, cervix, uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries.
In-office procedures streamline the process for both diagnosis and treatment of many common gynecologic issues like abnormal pap smears, heavy periods, urinary incontinence and birth control.

We typically perform OB ultrasounds at the following times: confirmation of pregnancy between 6-10 weeks of gestation, anatomy evaluation between 18-20 weeks of gestation, third trimester growth ultrasound around 36 weeks of gestation. Obstetrical ultrasounds may also be performed at other times as clinically indicated.
