In some countries, women must first see a general practitioner (GP; also known as a family practitioner or FP) prior to seeing a gynaecologist. If their condition requires training, knowledge, surgical procedure, or equipment unavailable to the GP, the patient is then referred to a gynaecologist.
In the United States, however, law and many health insurance plans allow gynaecologists to provide primary care in addition to aspects of their own specialty. With this option available, some women opt to see a gynaecological surgeon for non-gynaecological problems without another physician’s referral.
We endeavour to provide the same choice to women and provide high-quality consultant led care.
