Did you know, since 2004, we have performed a series of in-office procedures that save patients both time and money? Whether you require an office hysteroscopy or another treatment, count on us to keep you healthy.

When you require minimally invasive surgery, you deserve to receive the top care possible. Our office focuses on quality services for each of our patients. We have invested in Endosee, a game-changing device that lets OB/GYNs directly visualize the uterine cavity at the point-of-care to get a diagnosis quicker. The all-in-one, handheld, portable, cordless system allows you to complete a diagnostic hysteroscopy in an average of three minutes. The Endosee procedure is well-tolerated, similar to an endometrial biopsy, and anesthesia is usually not needed.
Is a gynecologic condition affecting your health and quality of life?

4 Heart Health Questions Every Woman
Should Ask at Her Next Ob-Gyn Visit

Your next ob-gyn appointment may seem like an odd time to discuss your heart, but it could save your life (especially if you, like many women, see an ob-gyn instead of a primary care physician for your annual exam). In fact, it's so important that the American Heart Association (AHA) and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) just came out with an official advisory that urges all doctors who care for women to talk about heart health starting now. 

It makes sense: Your visit provides a perfect chance to learn your heart numbers, as your ob-gyn can check your blood pressure, order blood work, and more. And women who have had children may have an increased risk of heart issues, since pregnancy is like a stress test for your heart. High maternal blood pressure, preeclampsia, gestational diabetes, and premature birth are all associated with heart problems later in life. 

Here's what to talk about at your next office visit.

1. Discuss your stats.

Write down any numbers your ob-gyn provides (blood pressure, BMI, cholesterol, and blood sugar levels). Ask if they're higher than last year's and, if so, what you can do.

2. Update your current doctor.

If you've moved since you had children, chat with your new ob-gyn about your pregnancy history. Sometimes this vital information doesn't get passed along. 

3. Talk about family history.

Your ob-gyn will likely ask you about your family history of issues like breast and ovarian cancer, so be sure to also bring up your family history of heart disease.

4. Ask about a specialist.

If your blood pressure is higher than normal, for example, asking your ob-gyn for a referral to an internist or a cardiologist is a good idea.

Zucchini Mini Muffins

Shredded zucchini provides moisture and texture to these two-bite muffins, while chocolate chips add just the right amount of sweetness. A perfect quick breakfast or after-school snack, these muffins freeze well, so make a batch ahead of time for busy days.
