Why do you need family planning healthcare services?

About half of the pregnancies in the US each year are unintended. When you are better prepared for your pregnancy mentally and physically, you and your baby can get the quality preconception and prenatal care you both need to keep everyone safe and healthy.

Pregnancy spacing is another important aspect of family planning that a physician can help you plan. It’s recommended that pregnancies are spaced at least 18 months apart. Depending on your situation, you may need to, or want to, space your pregnancies even further apart.

If you have decided you do not want to have children, a professional healthcare provider will guide you through your options for birth control. Your physician will get to know you to develop a personalized plan that works for you, keeping in mind your medical situation as well as other factors in your life.

Lifeline Medical Associates family planning healthcare professionals are focused on providing the value-based care you need for your health and for your family’s well-being. Whether you want several children or none at all, a provider will inform you about all of your choices so you can make an educated decision about your options.

Patient Reviews

Overall patient rating for Lifeline Medical Associates:

Pap Smear

Front desk receptionist lost the 5 star rating because she was not 5 star

Annual Well Woman Exam

Check-in process repetitive - I completed pre-checkin on line in advance and then had to complete the same process via the kiosk when I arrived. I was then asked to complete a questionnaire.

Ashley August is the best. Always quick, easy and makes it comfortable to talk

Thankful for the digital experience here FINALLY. Wait times got so much better during covid but this appointment we were back to the old days with a 45+ minute wait. Things happen and I'm sure there was a good reason and everyone was apologetic. I just want is a heads up if they're running behind so I can arrive at the right time and not sit around that sad waiting room wondering when I'll be called. QR code somewhere else for check in would be helpful too because I waited a while to check in since another patient was filling out her paperwork at the receptionist window when I could have been filling things out right when I arrived.

When I arrived for my appointment for 9 am it was not on the schedule. I made this appointment 4 months ago. It turns out there were other patients as well whose appointments were not on the schedule, and new patients were rescheduled. Apparently, there was a computer conversion and the appointments were not switched over and the staff were not aware. They were able to fit me in and I am grateful for that. The Staff and Dr. Canova were, as usual, lovely. My complaint would be with the managing of administrator who let this happen

They switched to a new system and I was there for almost 2 hours. But the staff and Kelsey are always amazing. So 5 stars to them.
