Since 1987, we have had the privilege of caring for women in Howard County, providing gynecologic care and general women’s health care. During this time, we have seen dramatic changes in the way that medical care in delivered. Today, most of the GYN and OB/GYN practices in our area have been purchased by hospitals or they are part of large mega-groups. The health care that is provided is often determined by protocols in accordance with corporate policies.
WE ARE DIFFERENT. Because we are a small private practice, we have the flexibility to put your individual needs above the dictates of institutional policies. We continue to believe that medicine is both art and science. We will continue to practice medicine based on our assessment of the current research, our many years of clinical experience, and your own attitudes regarding your health.
Because our practice is small, we get to know our patients and strive to maintain a warm, nurturing atmosphere in the office. Perhaps this is why our patients consistently honor us with high marks in HOWARD MAGAZINE.
We are proud of our longstanding accreditation by AAAHC (Accreditation Association of Ambulatory Health Care). This means that we have undergone extensive on-site surveys of our facilities and services and that we have been determined to meet nationally recognized standards of excellence.
We are also proud to care for women during many stages of life ranging from adolescence through geriatrics. Read on in our website to learn more of what we have to offer!
