ColumbiaDoctors Riverdale

Our Mission

ColumbiaDoctors Riverdale at NYP/Allen Hospital serves the obstetrics and gynecologic needs of women within the Riverdale community. The practice offers patients comprehensive obstetric and gynecologic care, including a wide range of consultation and treatment options, from routine well-woman care and examinations to the most advanced diagnosis and treatment of obstetrical and gynecologic problems for women of all ages. Our physicians design individualized management, treatment, and follow up care, exploring and explaining options and procedures to each patient.


In addition to providing well-woman and preventive care, our gynecologists have special training in treating conditions of the reproductive organs: vulva, vagina, cervix, ovaries, fallopian tubes, and uterus. Our physicians explore non-surgical and surgical treatment options to treat abnormal pap smears, sexually transmitted diseases, menstrual irregularities, menopausal symptoms, fibroids, and pain in the pelvis. Our gynecologists work closely with Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC) specialists in infertility, urogynecology, and gynecologic oncology to develop treatment and management plans for patients.


We deliver at NYP/Allen Hospital, located at 5141 Broadway, New York, NY, and offer high-risk consultation services and patient education programs.


We offer mothers-to-be exceptional care, from preconception visits to regular prenatal examinations, which include an array of sophisticated screening and diagnostic procedures to monitor fetal growth and development and to identify potential problems. Our obstetricians track the mother’s health just as carefully to detect and treat any maternal complications that may develop. For patients whose pregnancies are complicated by fetal disorders, we coordinate care with our Maternal Fetal Medicine (MFM) specialists at NYP/Allen Hospital, who work with multidisciplinary teams of prenatal and postnatal specialists to provide the best care options for each patient, before and after birth.


Part of the vibrant medical community, our doctors and patients benefit from NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital’s Columbia University Medical Center facilities and expertise in patient care, and from collaboration with cutting edge medical researchers, clinicians, and multidisciplinary specialists. NYP is consistently ranked No. 1 in New York City and on the Honor Roll nationally, and ranks in the top 20 for gynecology in US News and World Report’s annual survey.
