About Practice


Serving the women of southwestern Washington since 1993, the all-women OB/GYN practice of South Sound Women’s Center in Olympia, Washington, provides professional, compassionate full-service care to women of all ages and life stages.

All OB/GYNs at SSWC are board-certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology. Their physicians have decades of experience in treating all facets of women’s health from pap smears and well women care exams to pregnancy and delivery, pelvic floor disorders, and menopause.

SSWC understands the busy lives of its patients and offers many services and procedures right in the office for your convenience. Some of these services include ultrasounds, mammograms, a lab for blood work, MonaLisa Touch® vaginal rejuvenation therapy, and sterilization.

Throughout your pregnancy, you get the combination of comfort and reassurance that comes from seeing the same OB/GYN at every visit. The SSWC OB/GYNs are prepared to handle all types of childbirth, including cesarean sections, or C-sections, and vaginal births after C-sections. The SSWC office is a short distance away from the Capital Medical Center’s Labor & Delivery suite.

At SSWC, you receive expert and supportive care at every life stage and for every health issue or concern.
