Endometriosis Clinic

Despite severe pain that can be described as "intense" or "overwhelming", many women have experienced their symptoms being normalized. Although pain can be common, it should not be trivialized, especially by those in the medical field. This leads to a delay in receiving a diagnosis of endometriosis. Meanwhile, relationships, family, and work are affected. 

We believe women are the authorities of their own narratives. Effective communication is essential to providing a complete picture of each woman's goals and preferences. Our clinic values communication with our patients so that they can have their health concerns heard and addressed.
