Women and Obstetrics Services

PeaceHealth Medical Group Family Medicine is committed to promoting the health and well being of women in Southwest Washington. We offer a wide range of services including gynecology examinations, obstetrical care (Fisher's Landing location), pre-operative and general medical evaluations, minor surgical procedures, counseling and nutritional management.

We provide full-spectrum maternity care including preconception counseling, prenatal care, deliveries, lactation support, and post-partum care.

We strive to provide continuity of care, so that mothers-to-be can expect to see the same physician for every prenatal visit and for the delivery. Though one of our providers is always on call, the provider handling your obstetrical care will normally come in to deliver your baby. High-risk patients are managed in conjunction with subspecialty consultants as needed; our priority is to help you have a positive, safe, and healthy pregnancy. As a bonus, all of our providers care for children, so your doctor can your baby's doctor as well!

Our Physicians and Physician Assistants offer complete care for women and children in the supportive and caring environment of our offices located in Fisher's Landing and Battle Ground.


The gynecology services at Family Medicine of Southwest Washington are coordinated and supervised by Joe Chang, MD, who is Board Certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology. He works in conjunction with our residents and with other family medicine faculty who are trained in colposcopy and leep. The services provided range from nonsurgical consultation to operative gynecology. This includes contraceptive planning (from pills to IUD to the Essure). We work with you to find the right contraceptive depending on how permanent you want it. Additional services include evaluation of irregular menstrual bleeding, evaluation and treatment of lesions of the vulva from warts to cancerous changes, to fitting of pessaries for women with bladder control problems, and more.
