My appointment was at the location off Harlem— The easiest, and most positive experience I’ve ever had at an annual exam! The entire team was friendly and welcoming. I was taken care of in one visit and on with my day in no time! I am excited to have established practice with Women’s Health Group
Dr.Mike is amazing. He listens, has solutions and follows through. I travel over an hour to see him and I wouldn’t change it for anything.
I've been coming to Dr. Awad and Dr. Mike for over 30 years. Never had a bad experience and actually look forward to chatting with them both.
I was a little sad and nervous when I was told Dr. Mike was unavailable today (delivering babies!) so I saw Dr. Lexi. I should have known Dr. Mike would only hire the best to work with him. Dr. Lexi was kind and knowledgeable. She asked all the right questions and was very gentle. Great staff as well.

Pt.centered care where you are treated like family.
Dr Awad and Dr Lexy are the best in town! I just simply feel comfortable and well taken care of. All the team is amazing and very welcoming.
At your first OB/GYN appointment, your doctor will ask you about your medical history and any medications you are taking. They will also perform a physical exam, including a pelvic exam and breast exam. Your doctor may also order some tests, such as a Pap smear and HPV test.
It is recommended that you see your OB/GYN for an annual checkup. However, you may need to see your doctor more often if you have any chronic health conditions, such as diabetes or high blood pressure, or if you are pregnant.
There are many different types of birth control available, including hormonal birth control methods (such as the pill, patch, and ring), barrier methods (such as condoms and diaphragms), and long-acting reversible contraceptive (LARC) methods (such as the IUD and implant).
There are a number of signs and symptoms that may indicate pregnancy, such as a missed period, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, and breast tenderness. However, the only way to know for sure if you are pregnant is to take a pregnancy test.
The most common symptoms of early pregnancy include a missed period, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, and breast tenderness. Other possible symptoms include frequent urination, mood swings, and food cravings.
It is important to eat a healthy diet during pregnancy. You should eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein. You should also avoid processed foods, sugary drinks, and excessive caffeine
The amount of weight you should gain during pregnancy depends on your pre-pregnancy weight. If you were at a healthy weight before pregnancy, you should expect to gain between 25 and 35 pounds. If you were overweight or obese before pregnancy, you should expect to gain between 15 and 25 pounds.
Most exercises are safe during pregnancy, but it is important to talk to your doctor before starting any new exercise program. Some good exercises for pregnant women include walking, swimming, and yoga.
Labor and delivery is the process of giving birth. It is a long and complex process, but it is also a natural and beautiful experience. During labor, your uterus will contract and dilate (open) to allow your baby to pass through. Once your cervix is fully dilated, your baby will be born.
There are three main types of postpartum depression: baby blues, postpartum depression, and postpartum psychosis. Baby blues is a mild form of postpartum depression that affects up to 80% of new mothers. Postpartum depression is a more serious form of depression that affects up to 15% of new mothers. Postpartum psychosis is a rare but serious form of postpartum depression that affects about 1 in 1,000 new mothers.
If you think you may have postpartum depression, it is important to talk to your doctor. Postpartum depression is a treatable condition, and there are many different resources available to help you.
