Obstetrics and Gynecology

The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology has 5 physicians, 3 midwives, and 1 nurse practitioners. They see patients in Canandaigua and Farmington and are accepting new patients.

Obstetrics On Call System

The Ob/Gyn department has developed a new process for “on call” that better serves patients at the hospital and in our office. In the past, our physicians would each be responsible for their own patients at the hospital. They would each deliver their own patients babies during regular office hours. This process would make unplanned interruptions to office patients unavoidable.

Currently, our physicians take turns being responsible to the hospital, in 24 hour shifts. If a patient has need of our services at FFTH – either through the emergency department or in the birthing center they will be seen by the “on call” doctor. This dramatically decreases the interruptions for our doctors seeing patients in the office.

We feel this is the best way to balance the various needs of all our patients. Whether a patient requires our services at the hospital or in the office, it is always our goal to provide the best care possible to each individual.
