Childbearing is a normal part of life but a pregnant woman does need professional guidance and support. The nurse-midwife approach to childbirth is based on the philosophy that birth proceeds well on its own when allowed to follow nature's fine-tuned engineering.

Bone Density Testing

Our bones are constantly changing. Around the age of 30 bones reach their peak strength and then naturally become weaker with age. When bone mass loss occurs the condition is known as osteoporosis leading to increased risk for bone fractures.

Bone density can be measured to help your doctor gauge your fracture risk.

Risk factors for osteoporosis include:

~ advanced age
~ family history of osteoporosis
~ early menopause
~ removal of the ovaries
~ a low calcium diet
~ lack of exercise
~ eating disorders
~ certain medicines (such as steroids)
~ alcohol use
~ tobacco use
~ maternal history of fracture
~ small, thin frame

Osteoporosis can be prevented and treated, reducing its risks.

Throughout the year we host a Women's Health Issues series free of charge as a service to the community. Presentations are held at Newton Memorial Hospital. Please note that registration is required to allow adequate seating.

Please call us for more information about our schedule of events or to schedule an appointment.

Reviews of Women's Health Care

1 Ehhh by Mislead - 04/09/2013

first time there, new doctor, all she talked about was her move to the area. NEVER asked about my health history, my current health, my desire to have more kids, any kids, etc. very disappointed. Office is pretty, but just didn't get the warm and fussy which is funny since they have signs promoting team work and customer service all over the place

2 Don't settle for impatient and rude doctors and staff- your business is more valuable than that by KJ - 03/06/2013

Because going to the obgyn is such a personal experience, you expect a level of care and consideration from not only the doctors, but the office support staff, too.Every aspect of my appointment there was uncomfortable- between the shortness/impatience of the ladies in the office, waiting about 45 minutes for my appointment, and even the bedside manner of Dr. Bovo.At the end of the day, even just requesting my records to transfer to a different doctor was a big production. I will not return to this practice.

5 my experience by happy - 02/23/2011

I have had nothing but wonderful experiences with them. Yes, you may have to wait, but in my experience it has been because there was an emergency which called for my doctor or midwife to be spending that time with another patient. I have also been that patient who needed the extra time to be given due to problems with pregnancy -- I appreciate that they gave it!

3 Answer your phones by rubot - 02/11/2011

Very little time is given to the patient and they NEVER answer their phones. they'll get in touch with you a day after you call.

1 This place has gone downhill! by Disappointed - 07/31/2010

I don't know what happened to this place; it's overbooked and understaffed. You wait for 2 hours for your appointment and they can't spend 5 minutes with you!
