Getting to Know: Gwinnett OB/GYN
All of us ladies know the special bond we have with our OB/GYN. From the teen years through bouncing babies and menopause, it’s the OB/GYN who provides a lifetime of quality care for the most intimate of moments in a woman’s life.
Gwinnett OB/GYN has done just that for over forty-five years, and is one of the largest OB/GYN practices in Snellville. The office has deep roots in the community, having always been located in Snellville, and all deliveries and surgeries are performed at Eastside Medical Center. In addition to comprehensive obstetric care – including both low and high-risk pregnancy – the practice also provides office procedures including colposcopy, LEEP, hysteroscopy, uterine ablations, Essure, and Certified da Vinci Robotic Technology. This special da Vinci training technology provides an instrumental service that is not commonly found in other local offices.
Currently, the practice has five physicians and two nurse practitioners, with plans to add an additional physician in 2018. They are very proud of their diverse group of physicians – both male and female – which allows them to serve and relate to a large variety of patients. The current staff speaks Spanish, Persian, two different Nigerian dialects, and, of course, English.
Gwinnett OB/GYN takes a special interest in adolescent care, infertility, and menopausal care. For adolescents, this can include education regarding STDs, contraception options, and other counseling. In addition, the practice has long-standing relationships with other medical specialists, such as hematologists and high-risk pregnancy experts, so they can provide their patients the best comprehensive care. It is not uncommon to see mother-daughter patients in the office, some of whom were delivered by the same skilled hands years before.
The physicians at Gwinnett OB/GYN have a unique philosophy in that they want their patients to be active participants in their care. All information provided to their patients – whether directly or via a specialist – is reviewed, and together they decide what treatment options will work best. They have found that this brings a special camaraderie between doctor and patient that has worked well for those they have served throughout the years. When asked why she chose her area of practice, Dr. Haleh Hamidi said that she found both obstetrics and gynecology appealing, and that not one day is the same. She loves delivering babies, and even after seventeen years, continues to be amazed at the miracle of childbirth! Dr. Hamidi says she is “privileged to be involved in the most intimate part of a woman’s life.”
Outside of the office, don’t be surprised to see one of the doctors at the grocery store or your favorite restaurant because all staff members live in the same area where they serve. You can also find them at numerous events throughout the community. From the Snellville Fall Festival to the Grayson Chili Cook-Off, they are there to provide education and info about not just the practice, but all aspects of obstetric and gynecological health. In addition to being an active sponsor of Brookwood High School, they also facilitate a student-work program with high school students who join the in-office staff to gain valuable work experience. Annual sponsorships also include a struggling family at Christmas, and numerous 5K races that benefit various causes from autism, breast cancer, the Amanda Riley Foundation, and the Pregnancy Resource Center. Gwinnett OB/GYN is also a member of the Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce.
