Researchers have found that the female sex hormone oestrogen can also benefit  women’s health.   This new information shows that this hormone helps protect  women from cardiovascular diseases. “Oestrogen manages to stop white blood cells from sticking to the inside walls of blood vessels, said the researchers, from Queen Mary, University of London.”

If you have United HealthCare we are sure you are aware that as of 01/01/2020 Methodist Hospital is no longer in Network.

Our United HealthCare contract is NOT affected by this. We are a private practice so this will not affect our ability to see you for your appointments.

All current OB patients please speak to our staff if you have not already done so.

We are still hopeful that UHC and Houston Methodist will work out the issues and come to an agreement soon!
