Obstetrical & Prenatal Care

Our unique prenatal care allows you to tailor your obstetrical care to your personal and financial needs without sacrificing the quality of your care (i.e. not all patients would choose to pursue genetic testing, or the associated cost, whereas some practices recommend it “for everyone”). At the beginning of your prenatal care you will meet with one of our financial planners to tailor your care to your needs. They will explain what is included in your global fee and what “extra” services are available. Laboratory tests performed in our office offer great savings compared to the same tests performed at the hospital.


Routine prenatal care includes up to 13 visits. If your pregnancy becomes complicated (i.e. gestational diabetes, hypertension, etc.), more visits may be required. During the 1st half of pregnancy (up to 22 weeks) you are seen every 4 weeks. Between 22-32 weeks, every 3 weeks.  Between 32-36 weeks, every 2 weeks. After 36 weeks, every week until delivery.

Surgical Services

Services include hysterectomy, laparoscopy, hysteroscopy, sterilization (to prevent future pregnancies), colposcopy and treatment of abnormal pap smears. We also perform many other procedures including surgery for urine incontinence, vaginal prolapse and vaginal reconstruction to name a few. Please call the office to obtain a quote for these procedures as they can vary.

can be accomplished by a number of different “routes” which vary in costs and recovery time. The majority of our hysterectomies are performed on an outpatient basis, saving the cost of inpatient services at a hospital. Further savings can be accomplished by having your hysterectomy at a surgery center rather than a hospital (i.e. hysterectomy fees at a surgery center are $6,000 and hospital can range from $12,000-$18,000 or more). Unfortunately, some insurance companies dictate how and where your hysterectomy will be performed.
Hysterectomy Options
Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy (TLH)
TLH with removal of ovaries
Total Vaginal Hysterectomy
Total Abdominal Hysterectomy
Total Abdominal Hysterectomy with removal of ovaries
Laparoscopic Assisted Vaginal Hysterectomy

is a surgical procedure when a camera is placed through the vagina, then the cervix, and into the uterus to help diagnose or treat problems of the uterus (i.e. heavy periods, uterine tumors or polyps). It can be used for sterilization by placing coils in the fallopian tubes to block them. The most popular use of the hysteroscopy is to burn the lining of the uterus to stop or lessen a heavy or irregular period. There is minimal pain and recovery is generally 24-48 hours. This is called endometrial ablation.
Hysterocopy Options
Hysteroscopy with biopsy (or D&C)
Skyla – 3 years (has progesterone) Hysteroscopy for endometrial ablation
Hysteroscopy for tumor removal
Hysteroscopy for essure tubal occlusion
Diagnostic Hysteroscopy

is a surgery where a camera is placed (usually through the navel “belly button”) into the abdomen which allows the surgeon to see and fix problems of the patient’s ovaries, fallopian tubes, and pelvis (i.e. endometriosis). Many times it is used for diagnosis (to see “what’s going on”), but can also be used for sterilization, to burn the fallopian tubes (tubal ligation) or remove them.
Laproscopy Options
Diagnostic Laparoscopy
Laparoscopic Tubal Ligation
Laparoscopic removal of fallopian tubes
Laparoscopic removal of ovary(s)
Laparoscopic treatment of endometriosis
Laparoscopic treatment of pelvic scarring
Laparoscopic treatment of ovarian cyst(s)

uses a camera/telescope to evaluate the cervix when you have had an abnormal pap smear. Biopsies can be performed at this time.
Colposcopy Options
Colposcopy with biopsy of cervix
Colposcopy with biopsy and endocervical curettage

Loop Electrode Excision Procedure is performed when the colposcopy reveals abnormal cervical cells that have the potential to change into cancer. It is performed in the clinic to save the costs of a cone biopsy performed in a hospital setting.

Condoms should always be utilized to prevent sexually transmitted diseases. When combined with vaginal suppositories, they can provide an effective means of birth control.

Depo Provera
