What to Expect

Thank you for selecting our office to provide your obstetric and gynecologic needs! Within this site, you will find Frequently Asked Questions and our Office Policies, designed to make our patients feel at ease and to receive the care that you deserve. Our experienced women’s healthcare professionals are devoted to your comfort and will make every effort to ensure that your visit is a pleasant one.

  • BEFORE SEEING THE DOCTOR you will be seen by a medical assistant to answer a couple of questions to expedite your visit. This gives you the chance to get to know your medical assistant and ask any questions that you may have so that your doctor will be able to discuss them with you.
  • IF YOU REQUIRE SURGERY, we will endeavor to make you as comfortable as we can. Our surgery scheduler will contact your insurance to verify coverage and then contact you to select a date for your procedure. Once you are scheduled, you will have a pre-operative visit with your doctor so that you will understand the risks and benefits of surgery and have him/her answer any questions. You will also have blood work done if necessary.
  • IF YOU ARE PREGNANT, when you come in for your initial obstetrics visit, you will first have a sonogram performed. You will then meet with the medical assistant to get your vital signs, update some history, and give a urine specimen. Then you will see your OB/GYN physician, who will perform an exam, discuss pregnancy expectations and options, and answer your questions. After your first visit, our billing manager will send you a notice of your financial obligations and deposits.
  • FOR ANNUAL GYNECOLOGIC VISITS our appointment secretary will send out a reminder 2-3 months in advance. We recommend that you call at this time to make your appointment. As some of you are aware, our office can get booked quickly. If you are a teacher or a student and would like a summer appointment, please schedule your annual gynecologic visit several months in advance.

If there is anything that we can do to make your visit more pleasant, please let us know!
