Welcome to the gynecologic practice of Dr. Gwendolyn V. Kelly.
I specialize in office-based gynecologic care and women’s preventive health.In addition to caring for you at your annual “check-up”, I can offer expert advice on abnormal bleeding, abnormal paps, pelvic pain, infections, contraceptive options, vaccinations, and other gynecologic concerns.I will personally communicate with you regarding your test results (paps, ultrasounds, blood work, etc.). I always send out letters if the results are normal/benign, and I always make personal phone calls if there is an abnormality. If you do not hear about the results of your test within a month, PLEASE call our office. This way nothing can “slip through the cracks”. The exception to this is with mammography: all normal mammograms are communicated to you directly from the radiology department. However, for abnormal mammograms, this office will call you to arrange the appropriate next steps. Again, if you do not hear about your mammogram within a month, PLEASE call our office.I do not perform surgeries and I do not deliver babies.If you need an operation, or if you become pregnant, I will refer you to one of my gynecologic surgical or obstetrical colleagues, who I am confident will provide you with excellent care (and, who will communicate regularly with me).I do not have partners, but I always carry a pager for urgent medical problems that cannot wait until regular office hours. On the rare occasion when I am out of town, I will call in to check for messages regularly. If you have a medical emergency that requires immediate attention, you must dial 9-1-1. If you need urgent attention and I am unable to meet you in my office, I suggest you go to the Emergency Department with which your primary care physician (PCP) is affiliated. I have chosen to become a “Courtesy Staff” of Martha Jefferson Hospital. While I will not be able to be your direct care provider in the event that you are hospitalized, I will be able to communicate directly and frequently with those who are caring for you during your hospital stay.
