NORWALK, Conn., Oct. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- UBM Medica US announces that OBGYN.net , a leading professional online community for women's health, will feature a monthly blog by Deborah Ottenheimer, MD, a gynecologist who specializes in adolescent and young adult health care. Her private practice, Ottenheimer Health, is unique in that it offers both primary care and gynecological care to women ages 18 to 40 years, providing cholesterol screening and treating sore throats in addition to providing full gynecological services and family planning options.
Dr. Ottenheimer is an active member of Physicians for Human Rights and helps victims of female genital mutilation in their applications for asylum to the United States.
Below are her first two posts on ObGyn.net:
- The HPV Vaccine Works. So Why Aren't We Vaccinating All Teens? In this blog, Ottenheimer discusses suboptimal HPV vaccination rates and encourages the overburdened clinician to carve out time to emphasize to patients the importance of vaccinations.
- Child Abuse: What Ob-Gyns Can Do About It Here, Ottenheimer highlights techniques for helping adolescent victims of abuse and offers a reminder that adult survivors of abuse have unique risk profiles.
