These mood changes occur because of a sudden drop in hormone levels after delivery. We refer to these as postpartum or baby blues. If these feelings continue after two weeks, this can be a sign of postpartum depression. Postpartum depression can happen to any new mom and is not caused by anything you do.
Because postpartum depression can make it difficult to care for your infant, your family and yourself, it is important to recognize if you are experiencing postpartum depression. The sooner we diagnosis postpartum depression, the sooner we can help you.
Please don’t hesitate to call us if you or your family is concerned that you may be experiencing postpartum depression.
A gynecologist cares for women when they are not pregnant and treat both medical and surgical illnesses as well as provide preventative care.
At UR Medicine Thompson Health, we are committed to making your visit to our office a positive one whether you are a new patient or a returning one. To help us achieve this goal, it is important that we schedule you for the correct type of visit and allow for the right amount of time. The most common type of visit is a well woman’s exam.
A well woman’s exam includes:
A well woman’s exam is not a problem visit. If you are having a woman’s health issue or concern (e.g., irregular bleeding, vaginal discharge, breast mass), a separate appointment will be made so that we can adequately address your concerns. Occasionally, there may be enough time to complete your well woman’s exam and a problem visit. In this situation, two separate visits will be charged for that day.
Please call our office at (585) 393-2800 if you have further questions or are unsure about the type of appointment you need to schedule.

Whether a patient requires our services at the hospital or in the office, it is always our goal to provide the best care possible to each individual.
To best balance the various needs of all our patients, our physicians and midwives rotate responsibility for patients in the hospital, in 24-hour shifts. If a patient has need of our services at F.F. Thompson Hospital – either through the emergency department or in the birthing center – they will be seen by the “on call” provider. This dramatically decreases the interruptions for our doctors and midwives, as well as patients in the office.
The following practices are accepting new patients.
