Board Certified Family Doctors
All of our doctors are board certified family doctors. All are Early Options® certified providers, meaning they have completed rigorous advanced training in early abortion. Most of our doctors are faculty members at prestigious medical centers and are leaders in Family Medicine. Early abortion is well within the scope of family medicine. Family doctors are fully trained in well woman care, minor surgical procedures, and obstetrics.
All Female Doctors & Staff
We recognize that many women feel more comfortable with women doctors and staff. Our doctors have had procedures, and recognize the need for a gentle touch. We know that at a difficult time, you are looking to be treated with respect, and without judgment. We are here to listen, and to offer you our hand.
A Note From Our Founder
For the last decade I have helped pioneer significant medical advances in the termination of early pregnancy. One method is the Abortion Pill where you can end an early pregnancy in the privacy of your own home. Another is the Aspiration Procedure: a gentle procedure that takes a few minutes to complete.
These methods have the potential to completely transform the medical service of early abortion. They can be provided in a private doctor’s office or in your own home.
EarlyAbortion Options is at the forefront of developing a progressive, private approach to early abortion. We believe HOW abortion is provided and HOW women and their families experience abortion influences our feelings about abortion. Most women end a pregnancy one or more times in our lives. We need not feel ashamed. Abortion care should be provided at the highest standards of medical care.
The clinic model is outdated and segregated from mainstream medical care. Clinics were created in the 70’s when abortion became a legal medical service. Because abortion was so controversial, clinics were established as a separate system of medical care. A “surgical” station-to-station model of care allowed for the highest volume of procedures to be done in an efficient manner. There is no medical reason why early abortion care should continue to be outside of the mainstream. I have successfully created a model of early abortion as an “ordinary” medical visit.
I have trained faculty doctors of prestigious medical schools these advanced early abortion methods. These have included Albert Einstein, Columbia and the University of Pennsylvania. These doctors are now training other doctors. When you come to Early Abortion Options you will join a growing community of women who want more than choice. We want to end our pregnancy with dignity, respect and privacy. We want the most advanced medical methods available. I’m delighted to make this available to you.
