Obstetrics & Gynecology

Improving Women’s Lives — At Every Step

For more than 125 years, ColumbiaDoctors Obstetrics and Gynecology has had the honor and privilege of delivering exceptional health care to the women of New York City and beyond. Offering a full range of obstetric and gynecologic clinical services, we’re continually propelled by our passion for improving women’s lives. We consistently seek ways to innovate, whether in tending to urgent health issues or providing routine preventative care.

Our physicians collaborate to offer a multidisciplinary, coordinated approach to care at every stage of a woman’s life. They also conduct world-class research that advances women’s health locally and globally. We strive to deliver care that incorporates not only cutting-edge science, but is thoughtful and compassionate.

With a regional and national reputation for excellence in women’s health care (most notably around management of high-risk pregnancy), our physicians are all affiliated with NewYork-Presbyterian, which is regularly ranked as one of the country’s best hospitals. Maternity and neonatal care is offered at the Sloane Hospital for Women and Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital. Founded in 1887, the Sloane Hospital for Women is a special place equally known for its warm, friendly environment as for its top-notch care.

Another benefit is convenience. While urgent health issues are attended to at our main Washington Heights location, we offer world-class routine service in more than 10 offices throughout the New York metro area.

Giving Birth at Columbia

NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Irving Medical Center is widely recognized as one of the top obstetric programs in the world, delivering more than 4,000 babies every year. Our program provides comprehensive care for both mother and baby — from routine prenatal care to managing the most high-risk pregnancies, births, and postpartum care

Continuity of Care

ColumbiaDoctors Obstetrics and Gynecology care is based on continuity throughout a woman’s lifetime. Our services include routine well-woman care, contraception counseling and family planning, as well as diagnosis, care, and expert treatment for conditions such as endometriosis, fibroids, infertility, gynecologic cancers, and pelvic organ prolapse. Our patients benefit from resources across a world-renowned medical center: state-of-the-art facilities, the latest diagnostic tools and therapies, and most of all, an extraordinary team of individuals who have dedicated their lives to women’s health.
