Dr. Joanne S. Hinson's Vision - Unique and Dedicated

A woman has unique needs, different from a man.  In addition there are many different women. Historically, women's health care has primarily been focused on her childbearing capacity, and many other of her concerns have been minimized, ignored or mishandled, because of the obstetrical focus.

As a woman myself, having had the honor of caring for many women, I understand those issues.  My goal for my practice is to continue listening with undivided attention to my patient, not only her presenting complaints, but also to be keenly aware of her background, character, lifestyle and body language, so as to discern what she may not be verbally telling me because of anxiety or fear. 

I feel that a trusting relationship is key in being able to correctly identify the real problem and issue.   Educating my patient with current expert knowledge, and dispelling many myths is important to share with my patient and it is one of my priorities.

I have been an obstetrician gynecologist for 25 years and in the first 23 years, I have had the privilege of caring for women in pregnancy,and delivering many babies into this world. Although rewarding and fulfilling, Obstetrics encompasses most of an OBGYN's practice.  I stopped delivering babies at the end of 2009 and since then have focused my career on the "other" issues of a women's health, outside of childbearing. 

I have updated and reeducated myself in the current leading edge technology and guidelines from global experts in this field, doing several extensive postgraduate courses and continuing medical education. I have made it a personal goal to always be on the leading edge.

I am considered an excellent surgeon , or "pelvic mechanic". I have made a commitment to minimally invasive surgery (such as robotic laparoscopic techniques) to minimize incisions, pain, and to ensure  a quicker recovery time. I do many  procedures in the office, (that are typically done in the hospital) so as to be more efficient with a patients time, often less costly to her and done in an atmosphere that she is familiar with.

The bulk of my practice is word of mouth, referrals from patients to their family and friends. Also referrals come from other health care professionals, who themselves are patient of mine.

Although I enjoy the "mechanical" treatment options, I would have to say that more important to me are my interpersonal relationships with my patients. I enjoy learning about their goals and who they are as individuals.

I treat them in the way that I would like to be treated- in a respectful, non-judgemental and dignified manner.  My patients sense that, in myself and in my assistant Michelle. She herself is personable ,very warm and caring . She will go that extra mile for a patient and her needs.

My desire is to have a solid lifetime relationship with my patient, where I can be a partner in her health, in a modern, relaxing, supportive  atmosphere that conveys attention to her needs and confidence that she is well cared for.
