Gynecological Services

At the Women’s Clinic of South Texas we have focused our efforts to develop services that will address the many needs and concerns of today’s woman. The Incontinence Center of South Texas and the Menopause Institute of South Texas were brought together to address the issues of the mature woman. Since then, other programs and services added to our practice such as the pelvic pain program, abnormal bleeding program, sexual dysfunction, and interstitial cystitis program,have made us the most well-rounded and comprehensive women’s health provider in the Valley.

Our approach has always been simple and practical:

  • address all gynecological and obstetrical problems
  • single visit approach: address and evaluate as many issues as possible in one visit
  • always offer the latest, most practical, and most efficacious treatments to our patients
  • lead our medical community with the latest advances in women’s health.

At the Women’s Clinic of South Texas we offer an all-in-one approach, where we can evaluate most patients in our comfortable setting of a friendly and well-equipped clinic. Whether the patient is a young woman who needs family planning or a menopausal woman with complaints of incontinence and menopause, we will address the issues with a full evaluation in a convenient single visit.

At the Women’s Clinic of South Texas, we make it easy for you to obtain board-certified, trusted care, for a lifetime of good health.
