Gynecology

At RGOA, we provide a full range of gynecologic services, from annual check-ups and routine Pap smears to procedures performed in our office or surgeries in the hospital. We evaluate and treat women with: abnormal Pap smears; abnormal human papilloma virus (HPV) tests; sexually transmitted infections; pelvic pain; fibroids; abnormal bleeding, infertility; menopause and aging issues. We provide contraceptive counseling and family planning services, including insertion of IUDs and Nexplanon rods. We also perform diagnostic ultrasounds in our office utilizing state-of-the-art machines and the latest techniques available in the field of ultrasound medicine. We are able to work so effectively, because we have many gifted practitioners who work together as a team.

Surgery

At RGOA, we offer a full range of surgical options to meet each patient's individual needs. Many surgical procedures, such as D&Cs and LEEP procedures, may be done in our office. Sedation is always offered in a surgi-center. Minimally invasive surgical procedures such as laparoscopies are always considered whenever possible, as well as non-surgical alternatives.

For procedures in which hospitalization is recommended or necessary, our doctors perform a full range of gynecologic surgeries at Highland Hospital. As one of the premier medical centers in the country, we feel fortunate in our affiliation with the institution and its incomparable staff of health care professionals. We have the highest regard for the hospital's excellent anesthesiology and nursing staff.

Our surgical coordinator works directly with the hospital to schedule your procedure in a time frame that best fits your own schedule and your doctor's recommendations. Our billing staff will handle insurance issues and pre-authorizations. We hope to make your surgical experience as seamless as possible.

Frequently Asked Questions

Explore the answers to all your questions about your gynecology appointment and healthcare experience.

What is the patient portal?

A patient portal is a secure online website that gives patients convenient 24-hour access to personal health information from anywhere with an internet connection. Using a secure username and password, you can review health information. You can also communicate with the practice to request prescription refills, schedule non-urgent appointments, update contact information, download forms and view educational materials. You can access our portal on our web site at rgoa.com. If you do not have a portal account, call our office at 585-461-5940 and select option 9 to receive assistance with portal setup.

What is the difference between RGOA's portal and MyChart?

RGOA's secure portal allows you to access your information from our practice and to communicate with our practice. MyChart is URMC's patient portal, which reflects services provided at URMC. Information such as lab results ordered by RGOA providers from URMC's lab may appear in MyChart.
