OUR CARE:

PHILOSOPHY OF CARE

obstetrics and gyncology

Our relationship with our patients is personal and confidential. We pride ourselves on providing individualized care and pay special attention to each patient’s needs and concerns. We have assembled a staff that is friendly, respectful, and dedicated to helping patients attain excellent service and follow-up.

Our approach to women’s health care is to manage problems as conservatively as possible by first educating our patients. Next, we perform a thorough history and physical exam and order the proper diagnostic testing. Treatment options are proposed and the patient makes the final decision with her physician’s guidance. If surgery is necessary, we explore the possibility of minimally invasive surgery. In fact, most of our gynecologic surgery is done laparoscopically, including laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomies, laparoscopic-assisted vaginal hysterectomies, total laparoscopic hysterectomies, endometriosis procedures, ovarian cystectomies and ectopic pregnancies.

FAMILY BIRTHING SUITES

When delivering your baby at Morris Hospital, your experience will be eased by comforts of the Morris Hospital Family Birthing Suites.

As a Level II Perinatal Care Provider, we have the necessary qualifications to care for women who have the potential for complicated or high-risk deliveries, as well as newborns who may require specialized services.
