I walk into Forest Hills, NY a private medical practice every day. Put on my white coat. Slide my stethoscope around my neck. I’m an obstetrician and gynecologist. My day starts early and ends late. It’s more than just a job. It’s a calling. I’m your guide through the complexities and miracles of women’s health. From the first period to the last, from the joy of pregnancy to the fear of a diagnosis – I’m here. So, let’s dive deep into the day-to-day duties of an obstetrician and gynecologist. Let’s unravel the mystery. Let’s bring light to the shadows.

The Morning Rush

As the sun rises, my work begins. A quick coffee and then the day’s hustle starts. I meet new faces and hear new stories. Pregnant women are full of hope and fear. Young girls with questions about their changing bodies. Women at different stages of their lives, grappling with the changes that come with age. Every patient has a new story. Every story is a new learning.

Midday Mayhem

Midday is usually chaotic. It’s the time for surgeries and deliveries. It’s a time of tension and relief, of fear and joy. The sound of a newborn’s first cry – it’s a miracle I’ve witnessed a hundred times, yet it never fails to move me. Then there are the surgeries, some routine, others complex. Each one is a battle against the odds. Each victory is a testament to the resilience of women.

The Afternoon Affair

The afternoon is for follow-ups. Checking on patients post-surgery. Understanding their healing progress. Being there for them in their journey of recovery. It’s a time for patience and empathy. It’s a time to lend an ear, to understand, to comfort. It’s also a time to educate – about health, about prevention, about self-care.

The Evening Enigma

As the day winds down, so does the rush. It’s the time for paperwork and reflection. It’s the time to understand what went well, what didn’t, and how I can do better. It’s a time to plan for the next day. It’s a moment of solitude in a day filled with human connection.

And then, the day ends. The white coat comes off. The stethoscope slides from my neck. But the commitment to women’s health remains. Because to me, being an obstetrician and gynecologist is more than just a job. It’s more than just a profession. It’s a way of life.
