Women's Health & Pregnancy
Women's Health refers to comprehensive women’s health care as well as health issues that are unique to women, including:
- Conditions of the Female Organs
Be sure to get early and regular prenatal care to ensure you have a healthy pregnancy. You should also get recommended breast cancer, cervical cancer, and bone density screenings.
Our goal is to ensure the health and readiness of all women at every stage of life.

Scope of Services Provided:
The OB/GYN Clinic provides the full scope of obstetric services. We take care of routine and high-risk pregnancies, to include antepartum fetal testing (assessment of fetal well-being and growth with ultrasound and monitoring), and obstetric-related surgeries (Cesarean sections, forceps, vacuum deliveries). Maternal-fetal-medicine subspecialists in the community are consulted for special medical ultrasounds and evaluation of the most complicated pregnancies.
Beginning in 2017, we are assigning each pregnant patient to one of two teams—Team Star and Team Diamond. This connects you with one registered nurse who will help to promote continuity of care and communication between you and the clinic.
The DDEAMC OB/GYN and Family Medicine physicians work together to deliver Fort Gordon babies at Doctors Hospital of Augusta, 3651 Wheeler Road. Doctor's Hospital has an excellent Labor and Delivery Unit. Information on services and how to schedule a prenatal class and tour are at: http://doctors-hospital.net/service/maternity,
We strive to keep you as informed as possible regarding the nature of your pregnancy. Please use the links at the right to access some information regarding pregnancy.
The OB/GYN Clinic also provides a full spectrum of surgical and non-surgical gynecologic services. These include management of ovarian, cervical and uterine disease, contraception, screening and treatment for sexually transmitted infections, infertility, incontinence, pelvic organ relaxation, and hormone replacement therapy. Our staff performs various types of major and minor surgical surgeries, including minimally invasive gynecologic surgeries.
As a specialty department we do not perform routine well-woman examinations. These are performed in primary care clinics.
The OBGYN Department is staffed by five OB/GYN physicians are board certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology, one family physician, one physician’s assistant, and one nurse practitioner.
If you have any questions or comments about our clinic then please contact us. We are working on many initiatives to improve the quality of medical care and patient service.
