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. ...Read more
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.

Question about women's cancers - is there a difference between a gynecologist and a gynecology oncologist?
Should I trust a regular OB GYN to do a Laparoscopic Cystectomy on an 8.4 and 4 cm hypoechoic cystic lesion? Or should I have a gynecologic oncologist do a Laparatomy? Both suspect endometriomas/endometriosis but have different surgery suggestions.
Ans: Endometriosis is diagnosed by exploratory surgery. If this is what is expected why would you need an oncologist? The lesion will go to pathologist who will make the diagnosis for you. So if endometriosis you have no need for oncologist/gynecologist. Both are well trained I am sure in the procedure which is straight forward ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No OB: A gynecologist does not do obstetrics. Many OB/GYNs will give up the OB as they get older, not wanting the crazy hours most OB/GYNs have.

Both have trained the same and are certified by the same board (ABOG). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
