About West Coast OB/GYN

West Coast OB/GYN Inc. is an expanding group of dynamic physicians who provide full-spectrum obstetric and gynecologic healthcare for women. The doctors specialize in minimally invasive laparoscopic and robotic-assisted procedures such as the "da Vinci" Surgical System, using cutting-edge surgical techniques and state-of-the-art technologies that allow patients to return home quickly, with minimal recovery and pain. "Our goal is to find the least-invasive approach to effectively treating illnesses," says Dr. Craig Saffer.

The group, which includes two nurse practitioners, a physician assistant and a dedicated, caring medical support staff, is leading the way into the future of women's healthcare while providing caring, warm environment. Patient visits take place in a relaxed yet professional atmosphere at the group's new suite, located adjacent to Sharp Mary Birch Hospital for Women & Newborns.

Preventative women's healthcare and obstetric care, including high-risk pregnancies and those involving advanced maternal age are additional specialties of West Coast OB/GYN. All of the group's doctors are on staff at the prestigious Sharp Mary Birch Hospital for Women & Newborns.

"Approaching the woman as a whole, keeping in mind how her disease and treatment plan fits into her life, is a key aspect to how we treat our patients," says Dr. Kim Goodwin, named a Top Doctor by San Diego Magazine.

West Coast Ob/Gyn has a strong commitment to the journey they take with their patients and prides themselves on their dedication to women's needs as a whole, from adolescence throughout her reproductive years and on into her postmenopausal years.

"I enjoy the diversity of OB/GYN. Being a part of a woman's total care is a privilege and is so rewarding," says Dr. Lauren Bales, who formerly served with the U.S. Navy prior to joining West Coast OB/GYN.
