At nearly every stage in a woman’s life, an obstetrician-gynecologist, commonly known as an OB-GYN, can provide a wide range of services. Pikeville Medical Center (PMC) offers a team of dedicated physicians who specialize in women’s health and the function of the female body.
Offering services in two convenient locations, PMC’s team of seven OB-GYNs offers many minimally invasive gynecological surgery options. Each member of this team is specifically trained to use state-of-the-art equipment to deliver high quality obstetrical care.
“Women have many unique health concerns and it is important for them to establish a relationship with an OB-GYN who will monitor them throughout all stages of life,” said PMC OB-GYN, Tiffany Thompson, DO.
PMC has the largest on-call group of OB-GYN physicians in the region and is the only hospital in Eastern Kentucky to offer a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Pikeville Medical Center provides a physician-led practice which has the capability to deliver and care for babies, manage high-risk pregnancies and perform surgeries.
“We closely monitor high-risk pregnancy conditions that could affect the mother, baby or both,” said Dr. Thompson. “It is imperative that women who are pregnant or are planning to get pregnant see an OB-GYN.”
Dr. Thompson added that having a good physician-patient relationship is very important in healthcare, especially in women’s health.
