Physicians

We are a group of physicians and certified nurse midwives. We also include a certified physician assistant who specializes in adolescent gynecology. Our female physicians and midwives provide all the obstetrical care for our patients. These two practice groups function relatively independently and patients are free to choose their preference.

Our providers and staff are equipped to meet the needs of our patients who speak Spanish, Portuguese and Greek.
