The obstetrics and gynecology team at Guadalupe Regional Medical Center (GRMC) provides compassionate, woman-centered healthcare for our community. Whether you are visiting GRMC for a routine check-up, help with family planning or care during a higher-risk pregnancy, you can rest assured you will be in safe, experienced hands with our board-certified obstetrician-gynecologists (OB/GYNs) and family practice physicians.Your OB/GYN will take the time to get to know your needs, answer questions and listen to your concerns. They can offer expert care for a wide range of women’s health concerns, including:
- IUD insertion or removal.
- Menstrual problems.
- Urinary tract infections.
- Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).

We recommend that all our patients schedule a well-woman care appointment every year. Well-woman appointments are the perfect time to discuss any changes to your overall health and medical history, ask questions about family planning or sexual health, and talk about changes you may need to make if you are considering becoming pregnant.
At your appointment, your doctor may recommend routine tests, such as a Pap smear, or other treatments or screenings. For pregnant women, ultrasounds and non-stress tests can also be carried out right here at GRMC.
