Scott M. Kagan, MD

Philosophy of Care

I specialize in warm, friendly and compassionate obstetrical and gynecologic care of women from their teenage years through the menopause. I will inform you of possible treatments for your problems with surgery being at the end of the list. When surgery is necessary, I use state of the art, minimally invasive techniques to allow for the least painful and quickest recovery possible.
