"I called for an appointment due to a gynecology issue. I left a message for the nurse to call me back. I received a call that day and was able to see the doctor a few days later. My experience was good overall. The staff was very friendly and Dr. Gibson was the absolute best. She listened to me and took her time. I've been to several doctors on the north shore (and I've been on this earth for a few years), she is by far the friendliest and made me feel comfortable the whole time I was there. Thank you Dr. Gibson for serving St. Tammany parish and the generations to come."
General obstetrician/gynecologists, or general OB/GYNs, are providers of routine care for women’s reproductive health. They offer regular checkups and preventative care to detect illnesses early and keep women healthy. A general OB/GYN cares for a variety of health issues, including:
Sexually transmitted diseases
Annual breast exams
After the age of 18, it is important to see a general OB/GYN regularly for preventative care as well as any needed pregnancy care. When necessary, general OB/GYNs may refer their patients to related specialists such as a Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialist or Reproductive Endocrinologist. However, women without complicated health issues may continue to see their general OB/GYN for care throughout their reproductive life.
