Bone Health for Women Over 50
Hi. I'm Dr. Rochelle Bernstein. As a board-certified OBGYN, I've spent the last 20 years helping women navigate their health. But it's time to do things differently; therefore, I’m transitioning from a traditional practice that limits women to 15 minute appointments to one that will give women the time they need to describe complex problems, like those experienced during menopause, postpartum, and infertility, as well as concerns about sexual health, so that their healthcare needs can be addressed holistically and comprehensively. Women must have their symptoms taken seriously (not written off as "just part of getting older" or "just the way it is" or that "it's all in their head".) They deserve accurate and complete information about how to take back control of their bodies and minds so that they can be healthy and happy.
As a physician who has spent a career seeing dozens of patients daily, I'm convinced that, in some situations, women cannot get the healthcare they need in a conventional setting. It's simply not possible to gather all the pertinent information from the patient and to think effectively while constantly switching from one patient to another, or to think deeply about one patient prior to moving on to the next patient. Being up all night and/or being pulled away from patients during appointment time to deliver babies and perform emergency surgeries only adds to the distraction and exhaustion of the physician and detracts from patient care.
I'm going to do it differently. If you're looking for a women's health care provider that views you as an individual, who will listen compassionately and fully to your symptoms, concerns, and fears, who will treat you holistically - body, mind, and spirit, and who believes that giving you all the information you need about your health will empower you to be healthier and happier, I'd love to see you!
I intend to start scheduling appointments (telehealth & in-person at our new office in Leadville, CO) in mid-April for appointments in mid-May and beyond. Please watch this space for more details.
