Family Centered OB obstetrics and gynecologic services.
Our physicians provide obstetrics that include prenatal planning pregnancy care for the mother, delivering babies and care during the postpartum period. Our physicians believe that the new baby’s pediatric care begins during pregnancy, and so we focus on a healthy baby as we partner with mom for a healthy pregnancy and positive birth experience.
Well-Baby or Well-Child Care is regularly scheduled check ups that include preventive care services and immunizations for your child. So, this is usually covered by most insurances. Family Centered OB physicians care for your newborn from day one and continue that care for the years beyond.
Family Centered OB physicians provide gynecologic care that includes Pap Smears, IUDs and Nexplanon. We focus on everything related to women’s reproductive health. So, this means we perform annual exams that may consist of breast exams, pelvic exams, and pap smears. We also help with family planning and birth control.
A Pap smear (Papanicolau smear; also known as the Pap test) is a screening test for cervical cancer. The test involves collection of a sample of cells from a woman’s cervix during a routine pelvic exam. A Pap smear is a simple, quick, and relatively painless screening test. We can also test for HPV, which is the virus that most often causes cervical cancer.
An IUD (Intrauterine Device) is a tiny device that’s put into a woman’s uterus to prevent pregnancy. It’s long-term, reversible, and one of the most effective birth control methods out there. More information here.
Nexplanon is a hormone releasing birth control implant that is over 99% effective. It is up to 3 years of continuous pregnancy prevention. More information here.
