“Helping bring healthy babies into this world is a truly amazing experience.”

Dr. Robin Kalish believes that educating her patients is an important part of her job.  Pregnancy is a time when people are willing to make positive changes in their lives. They are more apt to exercise, change their diet, give up smoking, deal with stress, work on their relationships, and build up their support systems. Dr. Robin Kalish strives to help her patients choose healthier lifestyles and behaviors and have healthier pregnancies.

"Obstetrics is a rewarding field of medicine. I am privileged to have the opportunity to help my patients' dreams come true."
