Obstetrics & Gynecology Doctors
Our dedicated team of board-certified OB/Gyn doctors, nurse practitioners and support staff offer high-quality, comprehensive OB/Gyn services with the goal of keeping women healthy through each stage of their lives. We provide obstetrical care, including high-risk pregnancies; routine gynecological care; and medical and surgical treatment of gynecological problems such as infertility and cancer.
Our OB/Gyn doctors and nurse practitioners work closely together to provide patients with the best possible care. Nurse practitioners are registered nurses who have completed advanced formal education and are certified to provide primary health care. They may provide basic care including performing Pap smears, ordering lab tests and assisting doctors with prenatal care in the office, but they do not deliver babies or perform surgery.
The education and training requirements for obstetrics/gynecology are set by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ABOG) and include the following to be board certified:
- Graduation from an approved medical school
- Completion of an OB/GYN residency program (minimum of 4 years in length) that is accredited by the American Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)
