We are now allowing 1 guest to attend obstetric patient’s physician visits. This is currently the only change to our policy.

We must continue to limit the amount of people in our clinic due to waiting room space and distancing guidelines. We continue to request that patients do not bring CHILDREN in the clinic.

In order to comply with the city ordinance, all patients are required to wear a mask in our building and clinic. If you have an appointment, please arrive with your mask on. You will have your temperature taken before entering our offices.

At Women’s Health Associates, we are taking steps to reduce the number of medical appointments and traffic within our walls. We are making sure the office is disinfected and safe for our patients and staff. We are kindly asking our patients to assist us in reducing the risk of COVID-19 exposure so we may maximize the safety of our patients, staff and community by following these guidelines:

We must limit the amount of people in our clinic. Only patients are allowed in the clinic, with the exception of our ultrasound department. One guest will be allowed to attend an obstetric ultrasound only with the patient. No visitors will be allowed to attend a gynecologic ultrasound. If a guest does attend the ultrasound, please ask them to wait outside the clinic during the physician appointment. Please do not bring CHILDREN in the clinic.

FaceTime, Skype or audio by phone will be allowed only if your spouse/partner is not able to attend your ultrasound.

Exceptions are for a parent of a minor or someone accompanying an individual who cannot be left alone.

ALL patients will be screened before they are allowed into the waiting room. We will ask a few questions and do a quick temperature scan. If your temperature is 100 degrees or over, you will have to wait outside the office until a provider can evaluate the situation.

Our staff is being screened daily, the same as our patients.

Call us if you need an appointment, we are here for you! If you are uncomfortable coming to the clinic, call us, we are still scheduling Telehealth visits with a Physician if it is appropriate.

We sincerely thank you for your patience and cooperation. Updates regarding our clinic and patient management will be posted as needed.  Our physicians are staying up to date and ready to support our patients through this challenging time.

One in three women will develop a form of cancer at some point in their lives. While there are a wide variety of cancers, women should be especially vigilant to those that impact women specifically, including breast and gynecological cancers. Simply being a woman is a risk factor for these types. The best chances for survival are when a cancer is detected early and treated as soon as possible, so it’s important to know how to assess your risk and understand which symptoms you shouldn’t ignore.

Infertility is a heartbreaking medical condition that affects women and men of every race, religion, sexuality, and socioeconomic status. It is estimated that as many as 15% of American couples have difficulty getting pregnant.
