Some words about me
Thanks so much for taking the time to visit my website, and reading a little bit about me. I’m a solo practitioner, originally from India, and have been in the US for over twenty-five years. I am Board Certified by the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology. I was a bona fide doctor in India, yet the laws in the US required me to repeat a residency, which I did. Medical training is much more competitive and difficult in India than here. In India, we didn’t have money for expensive machines, so more savvy diagnostic techniques are required. I only mention this, not to brag, but to allay any fears you might justifiably have about seeing a doctor who was trained in a foreign country.
I still love doing deliveries, and hope to do yours!
Planning is key to having a healthy pregnancy. I will meet with you to review your medical history, prior pregnancy history, and to discuss any other concerns that may be relevant to your future pregnancy plans. Call and make an appointment today!
Routine annual visits include: pelvic and breast exams, PAP smears, testing for sexually transmitted diseases, contraception counseling, family planning, endometriosis, and infertility discussions. Dr. Donn will answer any questions before you need to seek out an REI (reproductive endocrinology and infertility) specialist.
High-risk pregnancies carry risks to both the mother and developing baby. A pregnancy may be termed “high risk” if you have a medical condition or develop one during pregnancy. All pregnancies in women ages 35 to 40 are considered high-risk. With careful monitoring and management, most women with high-risk pregnancy deliver healthy babies.
Biopsies are the medical removal of tissue from a living subject to determine the presence or extent of a disease. Biopsies can usually be taken from any outside surface, or from inside the uterus in the case of abnormal uterine bleeding, without the need for anesthesia or major surgery.
My goal is to help you have a healthy and happy pregnancy. At your first pregnancy visit we will discuss nutrition, vitamin supplements, tests which are available to you, and what to expect during your pregnancy.
Fibroids are common benign growths of the uterine muscle. Often, fibroids cause no symptoms and can go undetected for many years. Sometimes, fibroids grow larger or are associated with heavy and painful periods that don’t respond as well to hormonal treatments. Fibroids can cause bowel and bladder discomfort if they grow large and press on these pelvic structures, and sometimes fibroids can be a cause of recurrent miscarriage, infertility, and painful sexual intercourse.
