At Southern OBGYN, our doctors not only provide you with gynecology and obstetric care, but comprehensive wellness care to ensure that your overall health needs are being met. Our staff of doctors understands that reproductive health can sometimes be a sensitive topic, and as a practice dedicated to all aspects of women’s health, we are committed to making sure that you feel comfortable talking to us about any topic that you may need to address. We are passionate about women’s health, and we have made it our mission to provide you with the care and treatment you need to live your healthiest life.


Gynecology is the branch of medicine that focuses on women’s reproductive health. From your teen years on, regular visits to your gynecologist are recommended, as a woman’s gynecological needs change with each stage of life. As such, our doctors are trained in identifying and managing a wide variety of gynecological issues – from minor complaints to more serious problems – that may occur at any point in a woman’s lifetime. Some of the reproductive health issues we commonly address include:

  • Menstruation, fertility and menopause (including hormone changes)
  • Family planning (including birth control)
  • Sexual health (including screening for STIs and sexual dysfunction)
  • Breast exams
  • Benign reproductive conditions (ovarian cysts, fibroids and other non-cancerous conditions)
  • Chronic conditions (endometriosis, and polycystic ovary syndrome)
  • Cancer of the reproductive organs and breasts
  • Congenital abnormalities of the reproductive system

At Southern OBGYN, we diagnose and treat gynecological problems, whether that means a lifestyle change, medication, or surgery. Our doctors are trained and experienced in performing in-office procedures and surgical procedures using state-of-the-art and minimally invasive surgical techniques to address your specific issue, so you can be confident that you are in capable, caring hands.

We also offer comprehensive wellness visits beyond your annual gynecological visit. These visits are focused on preventative care, and may include blood tests to screen for cholesterol, cancer screening, discussing healthy lifestyle choices (weight management, smoking cessation, etc.), monitoring thyroid function, cardiovascular health screening and keeping up with recommended vaccinations such as flu shots, pneumonia and shingles shots.

Adolescent Gynecology

Adolescent gynecology, also known as pediatric gynecology, offers treatment for conditions that affect the female reproductive system in young women under 18. At Southern OBGYN, we understand that adolescent reproductive health concerns can involve sensitive and sometimes daunting topics, so we are committed to not only treating whatever condition may need addressing, but also ensuring that your child feels comfortable and cared for throughout the process. If your daughter suffers from any of the following conditions, a visit to the doctors at Southern OBGYN may be the next step:

  • Abnormal menstrual bleeding (heavy, irregular cycle, etc.)
  • Severe menstrual cramps
  • Chronic pelvic pain
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • Pediatric vulvovaginitis
  • Imperforate hymen

Our approach to pediatric gynecology is comprehensive, so that no matter your concern, we explore all avenues to correctly diagnose and treat your daughter’s reproductive health issue. If her particular health issue requires more in-depth treatment, our trained and experienced doctors also provide surgical services. We will work closely with other doctors involved in treating your daughter’s condition, to ensure that you receive the best possible treatment from start to finish.

Some of the services we offer include:

  • Screening, guidance and counseling for preventative health
  • Evaluation, diagnosis and treatment (both surgical and nonsurgical) of a wide range of adolescent gynecologic conditions
  • Coordinated consultation and care with pediatric specialists if needed

The reproductive health issues found in adolescents are often specific to this age group, so may require collaboration with a variety of other pediatric health professional. With a myriad of resources available, you can rest assured that your daughter is in excellent hands at Southern OBGYN.

STD Testing and Treatment

A sexually transmitted disease (STD), sometimes also referred to as a sexually transmitted infection (STI) or venereal disease is any infection or illness that is most commonly passed from person to person via oral, vaginal or anal sex. However, STDs can also be transmitted in non-sexual ways, including:

  • Shared bedding, clothing or towels
  • Skin-to-skin contact
  • Childbirth
  • Breastfeeding
  • Shared needles

There are several kinds of sexually transmitted diseases, some of which show obvious symptoms, such as sores, blisters, bumps, rashes, abnormal discharge or pain during urination. However, some STDs can lie dormant and show no symptoms. Unfortunately, there are so many asymptomatic STDs that many people don’t even know they’re infected. This can not only be dangerous to the health of the person who has the STD, as leaving it untreated can cause internal scarring and damage to the reproductive system, and in some cases even cancer, but it also makes it more likely that the infection can be passed to one or more sexual partners without them even knowing.

Because so many STDs cannot be diagnosed by the obvious presence of symptoms, specific testing is necessary to determine if you have an STD, and if so, what type you may have. At Southern OBGYN, we offer STD testing and treatment, whether you’d like us to include it during a routine exam, or if you want regular testing for your own peace of mind. Most STDs can be diagnosed through a blood or urine test, as well as through vaginal swabs, and each STD must be tested for separately. It is essential to understand that a Pap smear is not an STD test. A negative Pap smear only means that there are no abnormal cervical cells – it does not mean that you don’t have an STD.Finding the appropriate treatment for an STD will depend on what specific STD you have. The most common STDs are:

  • Herpes
  • Gonnorhea
  • Chlamydia
  • Syphilis
  • HPV (Human papillomavirus)

It is vital that you and your partner are treated successfully for your STD before continuing to be sexually active, so that you don’t pass the virus back and forth between you. Most STDs are easily treated with oral or topical antibiotic medication.
