An obstetrician-gynecologist, or Queens OB-GYN doctors, has expertise in female reproductive health, pregnancy, and childbirth. Some OB-GYNs offer a broad range of general health services similar to your primary care doctor. Others focus on the medical care of the female reproductive system. Queens OB-GYN doctors has studied obstetrics and gynecology for many years in medical school. If you have a disease such as diabetes, your gynecological specialist is qualified to inform you about how it is impacting your reproductive organs. Gynecologists can also diagnose problems you may be having with reproductive organs, such as polycystic ovarian syndrome or cervical cancer. They also can check for vaginal infections and urinary tract infections if you experience lower abdominal pain or pain during sex and perform minor surgeries such as tubal ligation. Many Queens OB-GYN doctors are generally self-employed physicians who own their own practice, or partner in a practice with other gynecologists. Some are employed by hospitals, state agencies, clinics and charitable organizations. Still others do research at colleges and universities or are professors in university medical programs.
All gynecologists work in either a medical or an educational field, sometimes both. Gynecologists are sought-after throughout the world, and the demand for doctors in this profession is growing. In the United States alone, the job market for gynecologists is expected to grow 24% over the next 10 years. Most gynecologists report that they enjoy their jobs, but many also report that their work is stressful and takes a lot of time away from their family and social life.
Considering the intimate nature of their work, gynecologists need to be patient and empathic when talking to patients. They should know how to ask leading questions in a respectful and compassionate way in order to get patients to open up and fully discuss what their issues and concerns are. Embarrassment can prevent many women and girls from fully discussing their problems with a doctor. Therefore, building trust with patients is crucial, as this will encourage them to share private information more easily with Queens OB-GYN doctors. The clinical team at Queens Gynecology Services earns your trust by really listening to what you say and paying close attention to even the smallest details of your problem while being supportive and non-judgmental. When you make a decision about which doctor to see, consider whether you would prefer a male or female gynecologist. We know some women are more comfortable going to a woman because they will have to undress completely during an exam.
The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) recommends that girls have their first ob-gyn visit when they are 13 to 15 years old or when they become sexually active, whichever one comes first. An initial visit for teens may just include a talk with one of our doctors and no exam. We suggest you use your yearly ob-gyn appointment as an opportunity to ask questions. Even if your questions seem intimate or dumb, you can be certain that our doctors have heard them before. For more information please contact Queens Gynecology Services at: (718) 779-2666.
