About Us

Lafayette, IN OBGYN Doctors

The physicians of Woman's Clinic, Lafayette OB-GYN and Premier Healthcare for Women have cared for the health of women in Lafayette, IN for more than 40 years, and have now joined together in one convenient location, as Franciscan Physician Network Obstetrics & Gynecology. 

We understand a woman's special health needs and the importance of regular, ongoing care through every stage of life. Every woman is unique, facing her own challenges and struggles. Our OB/GYNs provide specialized and personalized care through a wide range of services for women from adolescence through post-menopause.

Obstetrics and gynecology (OB/GYN) goes far beyond just delivering babies. Our OB/GYN doctors understand the changing health needs you face throughout your life.

What are obstetricians and gynecologists?

An obstetrician is a doctor who specializes in pregnancy services, from pre-conception through post-labor care. A gynecologist specializes in the care of the female reproductive system, has surgical expertise and manages preventative care and wellness throughout a woman’s life.

In most cases, the education and training for both obstetrics and gynecology occurs at the same time. A trusting relationship with your obstetrician and gynecologist will go a long way toward maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Choosing an OB/GYN

It’s vital that you choose the best provider for your needs; one with whom you feel comfortable and can trust. Here are some helpful questions to ask when choosing an OB/GYN:

  • Is the office staff friendly and helpful? Do they return calls promptly?
  • Are the office hours convenient to your schedule?
  • How easy is it to contact your OB/GYN? Does the provider use email?
  • Do you prefer an OB/GYN whose communication style is friendly and warm, or more formal?
  • Do you prefer an OB/GYN focused on disease treatment, or wellness and prevention?
  • Does the provider order a lot of tests?
  • Does the OB/GYN refer to other specialists frequently or infrequently?
  • What do others in your community say about the OB/GYN?
  • Does the OB/GYN invite you to be involved in your care?

Meet Local Physicians

All of the physicians featured on this site are Fellows or Junior Fellows of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and provide personal care in all aspects of women's health.

Maternity Care

Our Physicians have been bringing new life into the world for more than 40 years. We take pride in our unique ability to combine family centered care with clinical expertise and advanced technology.

Our highly skilled medical professionals use bedside computer documentation, allowing more time to care for you and your family. We teach, nurture and grow our families with care, compassion and the most current evidence-based practices.

Hospital Affiliation

Our clinical affiliation and direct connection to the Women's Center at Franciscan Health Lafayette East enables us to provide around-the-clock Level III Neonatal care. Highly trained neonatologists and specialty nurses are on site to assist your physician with care and consultation for extremely high-risk newborn infants including preemies and those with complex and critical illness.

Expectant Parent Education

Education is an important part of preparing for the birth of your baby. Just as each labor experience is unique, so are the needs of expectant parents.

The Franciscan Education Center offers a wide variety of parent education classes. Our childbirth classes are offered in different formats and at multiple times to accommodate your busy schedule. It is recommended that your childbirth classes be completed three to six weeks before your due date. 

da Vinci Surgery

The da Vinci Surgical System offers tiny incisions, which means less pain, increased comfort and more energy after surgery to get you back on your feet even faster. Performed by surgeons with extensive experience, this minimally invasive women’s health surgery is locally available only at Franciscan Health Lafayette East.

With da Vinci, we measure the scars in centimeters, the recovery in days and the outcome in life itself.

The da Vinci® Surgical System provides surgeons with an alternative to both traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy, putting a surgeon's hands at the controls of a state-of-the-art robotic platform. The da Vinci System enables surgeons to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions with unmatched precision.

Our da Vinci surgeons, in partnership with Franciscan Health, were the first medical team in Tippecanoe County to implement robotic-assisted surgery.
