Ob/Gyn Physician Wanted

Fair Oaks Women’s Health in Pasadena, California is looking for an Ob/Gyn Physician to join our busy, successful, and growing suburban private practice. We see over a thousand patients per week and as a group perform more than 800 deliveries per year, all at Huntington Hospital which is next door to our office. In just a couple months, our 7,000 square-foot office (3 waiting rooms, 14 exam rooms, 3 ultrasound rooms, and a private lab) will grow with the addition of 3,000 more square feet just across the hall. More space means we can accommodate additional providers.

You can research our group at www.fowh.com. Read our Yelp Reviews. We are the premier Ob/Gyn group in Pasadena. We accept only private insurance (mainly PPO), no Medicaid or HMO. We have 3 full-time RDMS ultrasound technologists, an in-house lab, and we have the MonaLisa Touch vaginal laser. We have a popular bio-identical hormone program on-site (Pasadena Pellet Therapy) and a high-end boutique Medi-Spa also (Marina's Oasis). We have been using an EMR since 2008 and are well-known as a high-tech medical practice; currently we use athena, since 2020.

Our medical building, the Huntington Pavilion, has the Huntington Ambulatory Surgical Center one floor above us, and the region's top breast and body imaging centers one floor below us. The SCRC has an IVF clinic on the first floor and USC has the penthouse suite with more than 50 medical specialties, including Gyn Oncology. The USC MFM group is in the building next door.

Huntington Hospital, a Pasadena institution for more than 100 years, has an 80-bed Emergency Room, a Level 3 NICU, a 12-bed Perinatal High-Risk Unit, 24-hour in-house Ob Anesthesia and a 24/7 Laborist Program (OBHG). Dr. Ramen Chmait has his LA Fetal Surgery program here. The Hospital has completed the addition of 6 new Operating Rooms with 3 dedicated DaVinci Xi robotic suites and a new high-tech cardiac emergency suite, one of the most advanced in the nation.

In 2021, Huntington Hospital began an affiliation with Cedar-Sinai. Of the changes planned, one will be the introduction of the EPIC EMR system, probably in late 2022. Currently, the hospital uses Cerner.

Pasadena is a colorful multi-cultural community. We have the Rose Parade, Rose Bowl, Cal-Tech, JPL, Huntington Gardens and Library, Pasadena Playhouse and many museums and theaters. We are minutes from Downtown Los Angeles via the Pasadena Freeway or the Metro Gold Line. The local private schools rank amongst the best in California as do the public schools in nearby San Marino, South Pasadena, Arcadia and La Canada. If you’re a foodie, Pasadena has the largest number of restaurants per capita for any city its size in the US. If you like bakeries, we have Cupcake, French, European, Asian, Vegan and even a dog bakery!
