Patient Education

Atlanta Obstetrics & Gynecology Associates encourage patients to actively participate in their personal healthcare. Your provider may request that you visit one or more of the links below to learn about your particular diagnosis or scheduled procedure. These Patient Education links will take you to specific online pamphlets provided by The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG)1. These links are intended to complement, not replace, the care and advice of your healthcare provider. Atlanta OBGYN does not maintain and therefore is not responsible for the content presented. Please share any questions or concerns regarding these publications with your Atlanta OBGYN provider.
