Wanted to know where can I find a obstetrics and gynecology who takes straight medicaid?

State Medicaid: Every state manages their own medicaid program differently, but if you have medicaid there should be a phone number on your card (or sometimes also a website you can go to) in order to look up which providers in your local area accept medicaid and whether they are currently taking new patients. Good luck!

Wat are the major books that I have to study to get my m.D. In obstetrics and gynecology?

Not all in books: When you're studying under an obstetrician they will have their favorite texts and videos. But first you get your M.D. Then you do a training in obstetrics and gynecology. Congratulations on your goal. Assisting mothers to deliver their babies has been the favorite part of my general practice career. I took my wife to a remote island to meet a "baby" i delivered there 38 years ago. Very emotional.

Dr. Mitchell Schuster
Urogynecology 32 years experience
Women's Health: Obstetrics deals with safe delivery of an infant at the completion of a pregnancy. The obstetrician has to view the mother as 2 patients because there is a baby and a mother to watch. Gynecology is the care of women specific health problems usually related to the vagina, uterus, and ovaries. The basic training is similar for both fields so they are often linked together and practiced together.

Your doctor: You need to see your obgyn. In my practice i see the patient directly and answer questions like it was done for years. With the advent of text messages the good old face to face converstion seems to be fading away. Every method of communication has its pros and cons.
