About Balanced Care for Women

womens-health-officeOur goal is to work with you to improve and maintain your health by providing you with a positive, productive and beneficial health care experience.

As “women caring for women” we provide a complete array of innovative pre- and post-natal, gynecological, surgical, preventive and technologically-advanced women’s health care services. We are dedicated to our profession and committed to our patients, and have an intuitive understanding of the unique ways to care for, care about, and educate our patients. Each of our physicians knows the importance of listening—really listening—and giving our patients the time they need to convey their health issues and problems.

Other integral aspects of our practice are treatment of illness and disease, a primary part of this and every OB/GYN practice. As experts on women’s health, we know about painful periods, endometriosis, morning sickness, osteoporosis, postpartum blues, hysterectomy, PMS, migraines, infertility, hot flashes, and the miracle of childbirth.

Our attentive commitment to preventive care, which is best accomplished with comprehensive education and through our work with a team of nurse practitioners, RNs and medical assistants, enables us to provide the care our patients deserve.

From sharing the joy and elation of a baby’s birth to the concern and disquiet of a patient’s illness, Balanced Care for Women works with our patients to improve the obstetrics and gynecology fields as we educate, treat, support, and give women exactly what they need when it comes to their health.
