You may prefer to use a gynecologist, often referred to as an OB/GYN or simply “gyno,” as your primary physician instead of seeing a family practitioner or internist. In Forest Hills and Rego Park, Queens, your gynecologist then can refer you to other specialists whenever necessary.

Obstetrics and Gynecology

While the field of gynecology primarily deals with the female reproductive system — the uterus, ovaries and vagina, the practice of obstetrics serves women during pregnancy, from prenatal care and childbirth into post-delivery. Obstetrics also targets the health of your fetus. Most gynecologists today also are obstetricians. Once your baby is born, you can take him to a pediatrician while you continue to visit your Forest Hills, NYC gynecologist.

Obstetricians, by trade, treat complications during childbirth, but they don’t treat diseases. Put simply, obstetricians deliver your babies and treat you and your newborn immediately following your delivery. Gynecologists provide you with birth control and treat diseases of the female reproductive system. An OB/GYN does both.

In the Office and in the Hospital

Gynecologists also are trained to perform surgery when needed. Most have hospital privileges at nearby facilities. Dr. Gohar and Dr Gopal, are both affiliated with midtown Manhattan’s Mount Sinai Roosevelt Hospital and New York Presbyterian Hospital in lower Manhattan. Both of these hospitals consistently rank as one of the leading institutions for gynecologic and maternity care in the United States.

In addition to delivering babies in the hospital, your top OB/GYN in Queens, NYC uses the hospital or the ambulatory surgical center at the Forest Hills, Queens office to perform:
