We pride ourselves in the fact that, in today's changing medical environment, we are still an independent, expanding and respected private practice. And one which is loved by doctors, nurses and patients alike. Our patients literally come from all over the world, and physicians and nurses from Long Island and the greater NYC area trust us with their own OBGYN care. Our office is a very warm and cozy place in the cold, harsh environment of today's medicine.
We like to think of ourselves as “Boutique” OB/GYN. We are a truly private office, not owned by a hospital, healthcare group or insurance company. Every single patient in our practice is treated as an individual. Our goal is to make every patient feel as though they were our only patient. We know each and every patient in our practice. We do not run our office like a factory, and with us, they will never be treated like a number. As such, your medical care will never be dictated; the patient is always in control.
All the latest advances in Obstetrics & Gynecology are available at our office. However, we have not lost our personal touch with individual patients. All aspects of patient care, including clinical and non-clinical issues, are individualized. and catered to each unique patient. Same-day appointments are always available, and all phone calls are answered the same day. Patients have a choice of seeing a male or a female physician or one of our four very competent nurse practitioners. Our office staff of 20 also includes a certified nurse-midwife, two certified ultrasound technicians/sonographers, a registered nurse, and six medical assistants.
With a few exceptions, all aspects of obstetrical and gynecological care are handled in our office. In addition, billing and insurance issues are also dealt with directly in our office.
