Meet the Highland OB/GYN Team

At Highland OB/GYN, we understand the anxiety many women feel before a visit to their obstetrician or gynecologist. Our physician and staff are committed to providing excellent communication, knowledgeable care and convenient scheduling to relieve your worries and help you feel as comfortable as possible.

From your very first visit, you’ll be treated with respect by our midwife, doctor, nurses and staff as we answer your questions and combine compassionate support with the latest treatments. We’re proud to empower women to become partners, not just participants, in achieving sustained health and well-being for themselves and their families.
