As you can imagine, being a solo OB/GYN in a busy practice is quite challenging. I am on-call most of the time, but on some weekends, holidays, vacations, and 1-2 nights per week I sign out to another physician to cover my practice. I am fortunate that Dr. Gabriel Tenembaum has agreed enthusiastically to cover my practice on most of those days that I am "off." Dr. Tenembaum is a board-certified OB/GYN, and is a talented, energetic, compassionate, and well-respected physician with a busy local practice of his own. I, in turn, will be covering his practice when he is not on-call. On occasion, the team of hospital laborists, “OB Hospitalists,” always available on Labor and Delivery, may cover our practice.
While it is highly probable that I will be present at your very special time, the birth of your child, it is possible that Dr. Tenembaum, or the OB Hospitalist group, may be in charge of your care that day. During periods of coverage, I know that you will receive expert, up-to-date care from extremely respected, honored, and experienced physicians. Of course, at all other times, you will be stuck with me!
You can schedule both routine and "problem" gynecologic appointments with me as well as with our experienced and talented Physician Assistant, Stephanie Pappas. Stephanie has been working with me for many years and has special interests in menopause management, teen care, routine health maintenance, and obstetrical antepartum and postpartum follow-up visits. Obstetrical patients will be scheduled to see both Stephanie and myself throughout their pregnancies.
