I care for those of ALL ages, races, cultures, ethnicities, sexual orientations, gender identities or expressions, religions, physical and mental abilities.
I will acknowledge your unique life experience and we will discuss it openly - because it certainly plays a role in your health and well being.
Many of you have experienced the disparities that exist in healthcare- it is my personal mission to close that gap in my practice of medicine.
Dr. Shyama Mathews
Care Comes First
Women will endure immense discomfort, pain, and compromises to their own quality of life as long as they can keep up with the day to day needs of their families and their careers. I entered into the field of Gynecology because I felt I could make a difference in the lives of these every day superwomen.
I believe in the power of LISTENING. Too often, patients describe that their complaints have not been heard or have been brushed aside. They have not been asked the questions that invite them to share their pain and discomfort. They have not felt comfortable telling their story. I strive to create a safe space and an honest conversation to get to the root of the problem
Patients deserve to make informed decisions. Without learning about their bodies and understanding why they may be having their symptoms, they cannot choose the best course of treatment. Without understanding the risks and benefits of medical or surgical options, they cannot take an active role in their health. I believe in EDUCATION and EMPOWERMENT. Women should be confident in their bodies and their health; they deserve a physician who will help them achieve this.
