Columbus OB-GYN would like to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving- from our family to yours.  In celebration of the holiday, our offices will be closed Thursday, November 27th, and Friday, November 28th.  We will resume normal office hours on Monday, December 1st.

Enjoy this time with family, friends, and loved ones.  We look forward to caring for you soon.

Cancer can sound so limiting.  We allow cancer to control lives, change attitudes, steal happiness, and keep us from laughing.  Whether cancer has touched you personally, or a loved one, chances are, we have all experienced the effects cancer can have on the people that mean the most to us.  Something we often forget, is that the people who have the most control over our lives- are ourselves.  We have the power to influence our own attitude however we wish to do so, and cancer should be no exception.

 

As a provider in women’s healthcare, we are strong advocates of leading...
