"Horrible experience! When I made appointment they took my insurance information and told me I would be covered. They also scheduled me for an annual. Turns out not only did they not accept my insurance but they charged me for a problem visit along with an annual visit. To make it worse Dr Mahlab acted completely unprofessional, she didn't know answers to my questions so she pulled out her laptop and googled it! She told me to change into a gown then kept me waiting over 30 minutes as she did a whole other exam on someone else, before she came back in room to do my annual exam. It was the worst experience ever. Completely unprofessional office who seems to like to scam their patients as well. Call your insurance first don't trust them when they say they accept your insurance. And if you do schedule an annual make sure they are only charging you for that as they will sneakily bill you for other things."
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.
