The best interests of the patient come first in a kind, beautiful and relaxing environment.
Our goal is to provide state-of-the-art comprehensive healthcare, for women of all ages, in a compassionate, capable and highly professional setting. We strive to set the benchmark for new treatments and technology, specializing in bio-identical hormone treatment that’s personalized for each patient.
Meet Our Physician
Our physician, Dr. Pollycove, is passionate about providing her patients with highly individualized care in an integrated and comprehensive manner. Just as one size clothing does not fit all, what is optimal for each woman depends upon many personal factors. While Dr. Pollycove places great importance on technical excellence, she also combines compassionate listening with discussing cutting edge medical or surgical options with patients. Her wealth of experience in medicine and surgery allow her to integrate the complex, evolving medical literature in every woman’s unique best interests and care. Her broad and deep background in both the science and art of health care reflects these values.
