Our practice is devoted solely to obstetrics and gynecology. As Board Certified Obstetricians, we specialize in the care of women during pregnancy, delivery and the post-partum (after delivery) period. We are qualified to care for most high risk and complicated pregnancies. Our entire staff is dedicated to insuring you a successful pregnancy.

As Board Certified Gynecologist we specialize in the treatment of abnormal conditions of the female reproductive organs. This includes abnormal uterine bleeding, infertility problems, symptoms of menopause, and family planning. We also provide general preventative medical care such as yearly exams and cancer screening.

We offer in office ultrasound evaluation and a large amount of in office procedures.

When you have problems that fall outside of our specialty, we will be happy to assist you in locating an appropriate specialist. We are affiliated with Faxton-St. Luke's Healthcare.

Our Board Certified physicians are assisted by several nurse practitioners. Nurse practitioners are licensed by New York State and are skilled in providing pre-natal care, complete physical exams, pap smears, breast exams and ordering prescriptions.

The nurses are trained to assist you with any problems or questions you may have. Others employed by the office include ultra-sound technicians, receptionist, secretaries, and a medical biller and coder. We all strive to offer you the best and highest standards of medical care.

Appointments

We make every effort to honor your appointment time, for we appreciate the value of your time and dislike long waiting periods in the office. The nature of our specialty, however, occasionally makes this impossible with babies being born, surgical delays, etc. For any inconvenience, we request your understanding. If timing is critical to your schedule, notify the receptionist – she will make every effort to expedite the matter by either rescheduling your appointment or asking someone else to see you at your request.

If you cannot keep a scheduled appointment, please call the office as soon as possible to cancel and reschedule, we appreciate 24 hours notice. This will permit us to schedule you for a new appointment without delay.

We very much encourage prospective fathers to accompany patients for their maternity visits. Also, we encourage new mothers to bring their recently delivered infants in at their post-partum visit as we enjoy seeing the fruits of "your labors."

Telephone

For Medical Problems, Questions, Appointments and Billing please call 315-724-6787

Please place all non-emergency calls during the hours of 9-12pm and 1:30-4:30pm. Monday through Friday, for it is only during that time that we have access to your medical records.

All calls are answered by trained nurses who will be able to assist you. Be as specific as possible in explaining your problem so that she can expedite a solution. Many questions can be answered on the spot. Other times the nurses will need to consult with a provider and get back to you.

We have three incoming lines for appointments and problems. The calls are answered in the order in which they are received. If you are put on hold, please be patient and we will get to your call as quickly and efficiently as possible.

After office hours the telephone is assigned to the answering service, which then directs your call to the physician-on-call who will return your call in most cases within 20 minutes unless they are with another patient.
