Punxsutawney Physician Group OB/GYN





OB/GYN, or obstetrics and gynecology, refers to the treatment of various aspects of the female reproductive system. Doctors who specialize in this area are referred to as obstetricians and gynecologists. They are trained to handle areas such as childbirth, cesareans, and disorders of the reproductive system.

Obstetricians and gynecologists have a broad base knowledge of their field which allows them to vary their professional focus by patient. They often serve as primary physicians or consultants to other physicians.

At Punxsutawney Physician Group, our obstetrics and gynecology team is here to help for all aspects of women’s health. We are here to serve the women of the Punxsutawney community with planning a family, diagnostic testing, treatment plans, and many other areas.

Healthy Beginnings Plus

Healthy Beginnings Plus is Pennsylvania's effort to assist low-income, pregnant women who are eligible for Medical Assistance (MA) in having a positive prenatal care experience. Healthy Beginnings Plus (HBP) expands maternity services that can be reimbursed by the MA Program. The intent of Healthy Beginnings Plus is to render services that meet women's psychosocial needs in addition to rendering traditional medical/obstetric services. Federal legislation permits Pennsylvania to extend MA eligibility to pregnant women with family incomes up to 185 percent of federal poverty guidelines. Pregnant clients may elect to participate in Healthy Beginnings Plus or receive their prenatal care in the traditional MA system.
