Healthcare for Women

Our team provides the care women need before, during, and after pregnancy. We also address all of your gynecologic healthcare needs, including contraception care and menopause management.

Prenatal Care

We offer preconception and nutrition counseling as well as disease screening to put you on the road toward a healthy pregnancy. Free pregnancy testing is available seven days a week, and no appointment is necessary.

During pregnancy, we offer routine ultrasound exams and prenatal classes onsite. We provide genetic counseling and testing, including amniocentesis to test for conditions such as Down syndrome and spina bifida. Our maternal–fetal specialists provide advanced care if your pregnancy is considered high risk due to conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, or preterm labor.
