Welcome, and thank you for selecting The Group for Women. Our practice is devoted to the care of women, including all aspects of gynecology, infertility and obstetrics. As Board certified obstetricians and gynecologists, we strive to continue to provide the highest quality of care that our certification demands.With ten physicians, our services are readily available to you. We accept new gynecological and obstetrical patients, as well as caring for our established patients. Although each of us has individual patients, we are associates, and one of us is always available for obstetrical delivery, office care and hospital care.Some of our new patients are referred for specialized consultation, diagnosis or treatment; others are referred for a general check-up or physical examination. Still others require evaluation of a specific problem or wish simply to engage us as their regular medical advisor and counselor. Whatever your reason, we welcome you.The Group for Women prides itself on providing health care to the women of Hampton Roads for more than four generations. In the summer of 2005, we celebrated the 100th anniversary of the practice with the publication of a history of our 100 years of service and a dinner cruise for staff members and their spouses.The Group for Women is a leader in women’s healthcare providing OBGYN services, Urogynecology, Birth Control, Hormone Replacement Therapy, office procedures and minimally invasive and outpatient surgical procedures to patients in the cities of Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Suffolk, Newport News and Hampton throughout Hampton Roads and beyond.

Infants delivered by cesarean miss out on exposure to their mothers' vaginal microbes, and may be at increased risk for health problems like asthma and obesity. Researchers are beginning to test whether these two observations are related by swabbing newborns with their mothers' microbes just after delivery—the first step toward possibly developing a probiotic for infants delivered by cesarean.
