Gynecology in Downtown Doral and South Miami, Florida

A gynecologist is a doctor trained to specialize in all aspects of a woman’s health, from adolescence to menopause and beyond. Most gynecologists offer gynecologic (GYN) and obstetrician (OB) services to provide you with continuity of care before, during, and after pregnancy.

Choosing a gynecologist is such a personal decision. Some women prefer to have a female GYN. Others prefer males.

At South Miami OB-GYN Associates, we have both male and female physicians and nurse practitioners who are trained to provide a complete array of obstetrics and gynecology services, both surgical and non-surgical. Our goal is to provide ongoing preventative care, accurately identify your GYN issues, educate you on treatment options, and then design a personalized treatment plan.

Young Woman Consulting With Her Gynechologist

When Should You See a Gynecologist for the First Time? According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), your first visit to your GYN should be between the ages of 13 and 15 or whenever you become sexually active. Annual visits begin at age 21. We highly recommend that women establish a relationship with a gynecologist early in their reproductive years so they can receive appropriate care and guidance as they navigate their sexual and reproductive health.

During Your First Gynecologist Visit

It’s completely normal to feel anxious about your first visit. Preparing for the visit by writing down any symptoms or any questions you have can help maximize the experience and reduce your apprehension.

Here is an overview of what you can expect on your first GYN visit:

  1.  Medical history: The visit always begins with a conversation. It’s an opportune time to share your family history as well as your personal and sexual background. By sharing information, you are setting the stage for a long-term relationship.
  2. Physical exam: It all depends on your age and the reason for your visit. A breast and pelvic exam are generally part of your annual visit as you get older.
  3. Discussion of test results: After the examination, your gynecologist will share their findings and make recommendations. If you had a lab test or pap smear, your results will be shared via the secure patient portal.
  4. Education and counseling: A visit with your gynecologist is an opportunity to ask questions and seek information regarding birth control, sexual health, menstrual issues or risk factors, and any general medical concerns. Open communication is key and will allow your provider to guide you effectively through your reproductive health journey.

Everyone from the receptionist to the nurse and finally to Dr. Natalia Echeverri was SO NICE and very helpful! I was actually blown away by everyone’s energy and positivity. Everyone took the time to answer my questions and made me feel very comfortable. The office was also extremely clean and there was no wait time to be seen. So happy I chose this practice!

 I’ve been a patient at the South Miami location for ever… and the new Doral location has been a blessing since its closer to my job. All of the staff are very pleasant and full of knowledge… I will definitely recommend this location to my coworkers that are in the area… I love the personalized attention I receive from the moment I enter the office to the time I leave… I don’t feel like I’m just another number, just another patient… I feel like all of the staff really does care about me and my well-being.

 The experience I had with my two pregnancies have been very good. They have an amazing team of doctors and they worked with you on the scheduling always with a smile on their faces. Natalie front desk is amazing and the fact that they opened a Doral location is even better. Thank you doctors for taking care of me and my deliveries

 Dr. Chi was amazing- she coached me through the labor. A true professional with the experience every new mommy needs. I will continue to see her for my future appointments.

 Dr. Horst is INCREDIBLE! His attention to detail, bedside manner and amazing memory are just a few of his top qualities. I can’t properly express my absolute gratitude to have him as my Dr.

 Everyone is so nice at the practise. I have been going there for approximately 10 years now and even though I live a good 45 minutes away, I wouldn’t change doctors. Dr. Chi is amazing! She delivered both my sons and I had a great experience with her as well as with the other doctors at the practice.
