Our Approach

Gynecology Services & Patient Care

Gynecology care at Laurel OB/GYN focuses on wellness and preventive medicine for women of all ages.  Our care model considers the physical, mental and emotional factors that support a healthy lifestyle for women. 


A gynecology exam is a routine preventive visit to assess a woman’s overall health, including physical or hormonal conditions identified by breast and pelvic exams. We also follow up on existing gynecologic issues and address any concerns.


The best contraception is one that considers your health, lifestyle and personal preferences. We inform and educate patients about their contraceptive options so they can choose what’s right and most comfortable for their needs.


We commonly treat urinary incontinence, which is the unintentional loss of urine. It affects millions of women and causes physical and emotional discomfort, but can be treated through different types of interventions.


Vaginal discharge is a common concern among women. If vaginal discharge results in itching, burning, or other symptoms, schedule an exam with a doctor to determine the cause.


If you’re engaging in sexual activity, consider STD testing as a way to care for your sexual health. Testing for STDs is a quick, safe, and efficient way to protect your reproductive health.


A urinary tract infection (UTI) is a common gynecology condition affecting the kidneys, ureters, bladder or urethra. If you’re experiencing discomfort or pain, schedule a visit.

Menopause occurs at an average age of 50-52.  It is diagnosed by loss of all menstrual bleeding over the course of 12 months.  

Menopause onset is affected by genetics, illness, smoking, and the surgical removal of ovaries.  Every woman experiences menopause differently. No matter your experience, our doctors are here to help.

We can help you:

  • Deal with the physical and emotional changes associated with menopause.
  • Decide if hormone therapy is right for you.
  • Learn how to reduce your risk for heart disease, osteoporosis and other changes associated with menopause.
