At Downtown Women OB/GYN Associates, LLP, we are committed to providing individualized, expert and compassionate care to women in a warm and friendly environment. Dr. Shelley Kolton joined Dr. Marcia Storch, a pioneer in women’s health, in practice on lower Fifth Avenue in 1980. They were committed to providing healthcare for women, by women. They moved to larger quarters in Soho, at the time a relatively undeveloped neighborhood in 1987. In 1996, Drs. Kolton, Gruss, and Buxbaum formed Downtown Women OB/GYN Associates, LLP. While our practice has grown considerably since then, everyone at Downtown Women continues to share the founding philosophy.
Located in the heart of SoHo, Downtown Women OB/GYN provides a full spectrum of state- of-the-art healthcare in obstetrics and gynecology for women throughout their lifecycle. While we strive to offer our patients the most current and innovative options, we remain open to non-traditional alternatives as well. We feel this type of flexibility and openness best serves the unique needs of our diverse patient population.
Our dedicated medical staff includes doctors, nurse practitioners, midwives and physician assistants. Because we are a large and well-run office, we have time to spend with our patients and address their individual needs. Our patients have confidence that a provider is always available to treat them without the stress of long wait times. Our physicians are Board Certified or Board Eligible and are affiliated with New York University Langone Medical Center.
For Our Patients:
Downtown Women OB/GYN is currently transitioning to a new electronic medical records system. Our new system includes a patient portal that allows patients to update their information online. While this will ultimately make your visits more efficient, wait times may be longer than usual as we transition. We appreciate your patience while this change is taking place.
For Our Obstetrical Patients:
Downtown Women OB/GYN is pleased to announce that NYU Langone Medical Center, our admitting hospital, has reopened after Hurricane Sandy. We are now delivering our patients at NYU and we are happy to have returned home.
As always, please call our office first (or our answering service if after hours) if you are in labor or are having an emergency.
With Warmest Regards,
Downtown Women OB/GYN
