- Obstetrics and Gynecology
An obstetrician & gynecologist, or OB/GYN, is a physician who cares for women throughout their pregnancies, straight through to the delivery of their baby (obstetrician). They also specialize in annual care, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the female reproductive system (gynecologist). Many physicians specialize in both of these fields in order to provide complete overall health services to women at every stage of life.
- Gynecologic Oncology
Gynecologic oncologists specialize in cancers that occur in the female reproductive system. This includes ovarian cancer, cervical cancer and endometrial cancer, as well as the less commonly talked about female reproductive cancers like vulvar cancer, vaginal cancer and fallopian tube cancer.
In addition to diagnosing the stage of your cancer and recommending treatment options, they’ll provide care throughout your treatment and help you manage your symptoms. They’ll often work closely with a pathologist and a radiologist to properly diagnose you and determine if your cancer is shrinking or spreading throughout treatment. They’re even trained to administer chemotherapy and to perform surgery to remove cancer when necessary.

Extreme Fat Shaming
Self-verified patient of Dr. Karim S Elsahwi - Posted on January 16th, 2019
The doctor spent a total of less than 5 minutes explaining that the reason I was infertile (I’m not), have diabetes (I don’t), have hypertension and have precancerous cells was because of my weight. Did no sort of exam. Was very rude and condescending and cut me off with every question I asked. I will not go back there ever again. Barely could hold it together before sobbing in the parking lot. I can understand the need for honesty but maybe do it in a more polite and truthful fashion.

Dr. Elsahwi has always explained any procedure either in hospital or office. He is very thorough during consultations and I am very confident with his medical analysis. I am so relieved to know he is in my corner when it comes to fighting against any cervical disease. Also, his staff are a wonderful group of professionals making your visit is a pleasant one.

Be Very Careful
Self-verified patient of Dr. Karim S Elsahwi - Posted on April 9th, 2015
I was referred to this Dr. by my GYN as a second opinion. I filled out all the paperwork prior to going in for my appt. Still waited for over an hour to see the Dr.. He is very abrupt, dismissive, condescending and does not explain anything even in regards to why he is recommending extensive live altering surgery. He gives you the old, "Don't worry, Ill take care of it", when you as a patient have the nerve to ask a question. I will seek another opinion as this doctor did not give me enough information to make an educated and informed decision about why I need surgery. If in fact ,I do need to have this procedure, it will not be with him. Very awful experience. Trust yourself.
