Central Valley Women's Health Associates
I have nothing but great things to say about this office. Dr. Mason is a true professional. He has always given me the time and attention that I require. I have been experiencing some very scary and abnormal symptoms for a person my age. Dr. Mason has done everything in his power to make me feel calm and reassured that everything is going to be ok. Several women in my family are also patients of Dr. Mason and they too have nothing but great things to say about him. The office is always clean, quiet and comfortable. The equipment is up to date. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. I do have to wait in the waiting room for up to 30 minutes sometimes, but the wait is absolutely worth it when you are receiving the level of care that this office provides. I highly recommend Central Valley Women's Health Associates to anyone reading this.

Dr. Ostoya is absolutely amazing! After having two previous births with other doctors I feel like I was jipped after receiving the care I did from him. He truly cares about you as his patient, and I appreciated the fact that when it came time to delivery he didn't let an on-call doctor deliver for him. He takes the time to listen to your concerns & needs. His bedside manner is unlike any doctor I have ever had before and the office staff is just the icing on the cake. Would highly recommend him to anyone & everyone that will listen ;)

Constantly change appt times & days, continue to bill wrong insurance even after being told 4 times which insurance to bill. Switch dr.s on you without even giving patient notice. They caused more stress on me than anything else during my high risk pregnancy.
Tips & Advices
OB/GYNs learn to treat infertility as part of their standard education. OBGYNs who further their training in reproductive endocrinology and infertility are known as fertility specialists.
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a treatment where medication is used to replace hormones a woman's body does not create naturally. Women are prescribed either estrogen alone or a mix of estrogen and progesterone. The former is given to women who've had hysterectomies, while the latter is for postmenopausal women. HRT used to be a common treatment, but doctors have prescribed it less often in recent years, as concerns of negative side effects increased.
Endometriosis is a chronic condition where uterine tissue (endometrium) grows in areas outside the uterus. This can cause extreme pain, especially around menstruation and during sex. Other symptoms include infertility, chronic fatigue, and painful urination or bowel movements during menstruation. In addition, many women with endometriosis also have allergies, frequent yeast infections, or sensitivity to certain chemicals.
Morning sickness is a common pregnancy symptom that includes nausea and occasional vomiting. Despite its name, morning sickness can occur at any time of day. The exact reason for this condition isn't clear, although most believe it results from hormone changes affecting muscle contraction and relaxation in the stomach and intestines. Another theory suggests morning sickness is caused by an abundance of intestinal bacteria in pregnant woman.
OBGYNs can prescribe or perform the following types of birth control:
  • Contraceptive pills
  • Birth control shots
  • Implants
  • Diaphragms
  • Vaginal rings
  • Cervical caps
  • Intrauterine devices
  • Tubal ligation
  • Hysterectomies
Women do not need to see an OBGYN to obtain over-the-counter forms of birth control such as male condoms, female condoms, or sponges.
