Women’s Health

Our team of experienced professionals provide women with a wide range of comprehensive, specialized care that meets their healthcare needs. We see patients through almost every phase of life including adolescence, reproductive years, childbirth, menopause and beyond.

Women face an array of health needs that may affect their overall health and wellness. Routine gynecology care allows you to stay on top of your healthcare needs as you age. We focus on preventative care, diagnosis and treatment. Routine visits also allow you the opportunity to build a relationship with a provider you know and trust to address your health questions.

Our services include annual well-women exams, breast and cervical screenings, mammogram referrals, sexually transmitted infection testing and treatment, follow up on abnormal pap smears with colposcopy and LEEP procedures, gynecology ultrasounds, and gynecology care and surgical treatment as needed for conditions such as menstrual problems, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), fibroids, ovarian cysts.

No two pregnancies are alike, which is why it is so important to establish care throughout your pregnancy. Our team is here to care for you at every stage of your pregnancy and after you give birth to ensure you and your baby are healthy.

Our obstetric services include high risk pregnancy care and group prenatal care through the Centering Pregnancy model. We also provide resources and support in pregnancy with our doula program in partnership with BlackMamasATX. Support is also available to you from our social workers and nurses, as well as connections to resources for pregnant and new mothers.
