We focus on treating:

  • Veterans: Our physicians provide specialty gynecologic care and surgery for female veterans from across Connecticut and southern Massachusetts in the Connecticut Veterans Administration Health Care System.
  • Women at Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC’s): Working side-by-side with midwives, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants, our physicians provide primary and specialty gynecologic care at New Haven’s two FQHCs (Cornell Scott-Hill Health Center and Fair Haven Community Health Center).
  • Uninsured: Women without health insurance face large barriers to obtaining specialty services. We participate with Project Access New Haven to provide free surgical services to uninsured women in need of gynecologic care.

We are committed to working closely with local community-based health centers and providers in other medical specialties to ensure coordination of timely and appropriate care for our patients. We have introduced a number of quality improvement initiatives in our cervical cancer screening program to improve clinical follow up and management of abnormal Pap smears.
