Why Care at Buffalo Women Services?
You do have other options in Buffalo for Pregnancy Termination--medical versus procedural (D&C) abortions, and other facilities. Medical abortion has been portrayed as an easy solution and for some women it is. And for those living in newly anti-abortion states, it may be the only option! However, the pills induce miscarriage and many women find the experience of prolonged bleeding and cramping at home to be more painful and difficult than anticipated. Additionally, medical abortion is only possible to 10 weeks gestation and has a failure rate of up to 8%. This means some patients who sought pregnancy termination at an early gestational age are now faced with terminating a later pregnancy.
Buffalo Women Services offers surgical abortions from 5 to 22 weeks by Dr. Katharine Morrison, a Board Certified Obstetrician Gynecologist with 35 years of abortion experience. There are virtually no failed surgical abortions! Your care is more consistent with our practice—your appointment is made by our front office, not a call center, your ultrasound is performed by our staff, your counseling is performed by Dr. Morrison or the Executive Director, your procedure is only performed by Dr. Morrison and you will have your 5 week follow-up visit with her, also. If you have problems or concerns, your call is returned by our nurse, who has worked here for 30 years, and any issues will be resolved by Dr. Morrison, the same physician who performed your procedure. She is available 24 hours a day /7days a week. There is never the frustration of explaining your concerns to staff who are unfamiliar with your situation. Many patients continue gynecologic care with us because they like stable attention Dr. Morrison provides, rather than the fragmented care offered by other clinics.
