Center for Women’s Health For women, by women is the motto of the Center for Women’s Health (CWH), the only all female OB/GYN practice in West St. Tammany. The practice was founded in 2005 by Dr. Katherine Williams. Kelly Brewster, a women’s health nurse practitioner, joined her at that time. Dr. Rachael Cresap came on board in 2010 and Dr. Hadar Waldman rounded out the group in 2012. The physicians, along with Kelly, practice a teamwork approach with a collaborative method for treating patients. Dr. Williams says, “We really do see every aspect of a woman, not just the physical component but also the emotional issues that we as women deal with. We feel like we do have that advantage as women to care for women.” Kelly Brewster follows, “the cornerstone of our approach is patient education. How can you beat a disease if you don’t understand it?” The mission of CWH is to provide innovative, quality health care for female patients in a warm and comfortable environment. The focus on patient care is so essential that it’s even evident in the design of the building. Patient rooms are painted in soothing colors and each one is decorated with a different theme depicting women at various stages in their lives. Patient rooms also offer custom cabinetry, crown molding 10
and granite countertops. Dr. Cresap says, “We want our patients to feel comfortable and free to ask questions, to learn about their health and how to take care of themselves.” “We care for women in all stages of life from adolescence to senior,” adds Dr. Waldman. “We also see both low and high risk pregnancies as well as comprehensive gynecologic care.” Conditions treated include pelvic pain, female sexual dysfunction, incontinence, menstrual disorders, menopausal symptoms and polycystic ovarian syndrome. All physicians are board certified and perform both robotic and laparoscopic surgery.
