Hi, I’m Dr. Nadim Hawa and I’m here to help you live your healthiest life and guide you to the preventative care that you deserve. I studied Gynecology and Obstetrics for over 12 years, and I specialize in minimally invasive surgical procedures. My colleague likes to say that it is, “not your mother’s gynecological surgeries anymore,” and he’s right. The procedures I perform are non-invasive, same day surgeries, and with minimal recovery. My patients are doing regular activities such as driving within 48 hours after their surgery.
I encourage natural birth with minimal intervention. Knowing that Your age, values, beliefs, health, current situation, and future goals all play a role in your obstetrical care. I’m not here to scold you or pressure you into taking certain medications or undergoing specific procedures, I’m just here to give you the recommendations and guidance you need to live your best, healthiest life – whether you’re navigating the best birth control option for you, having menstrual problems, experiencing sexual dysfunction, or going through menopause.
Whatever route we decide to take in your healthcare, I’ll be here every step of the way to explain all your options and give my recommendations for what you should consider.
