Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Bendell "The Women's Center was founded 19 years ago to provide new opportunities in health and personal well-being. We resist the "big office/big medicine" model and remain independent, small and personal.  One-on-one care allows us to promise confidentiality, integrity and excellence.

Our mission is to create an environment for women's care and education that is comfortable and professional. We provide complete obstetric and gynecologic care as well as primary care.  We strive to serve as a source for information on women's health issues. We try to help you identify and navigate the profit driven health misinformation found in the media (i.e. bio-identical hormones, menopause management, sexuality). An integrated approach is provided through links with other caregivers that women have found to be helpful. Our clinical staff, led by Dr. Bendell and Nurse Practitioner Karen Manning, will make every effort to ensure that your visit to our practice is as comfortable and productive as possible."
