"Today we're talking to Dr Cynthia McNally she is a board-certified OB/GYN and owner of Evergreen women's health right here in downtown Vancouver. Hi Cynthia .
CM- Hi Jen how are you?
LHC- I'm doing great, how are you doing?
CM- doing well thank you
LHC- Excellent! We are just wanting to get to know you, let the community know who you are, what you got going on here in downtown and I'm hoping that you can start.well let's just open this up. What made you start your own clinic?
CM- Well, so I've been an OB/GYN for 25 years and most of that time I was doing the regular OB/GYN, thing delivering babies part of the time and doing women's health the other part of the time and then in 2014 I stopped delivering babies and most of the time was in Vancouver. Also, before that in the air force I started working in Portland and just focused on women's health care so no more obstetrics just Gynecology and I realized that there really was a need for providers that just focused on Gynecology and also I didn't miss delivering babies. I didn't miss the hours or the stress...so I was trying to decide if I wanted to move to Portland, because I was still commuting from Vancouver and so I wanted to decide, should I move to Portland or should I find a similar position in Vancouver because the commute was just getting really overwhelming and exhausting and I decided that I really loved the Vancouver community and I wanted to stay here. I could not find a clinic that just focused on women's health with kind of an emphasis on holistic care so I decided I would start my own.
I learn a lot from my patients. Sometimes, more than I would like to admit. Yes, we doctors may disparage our patients ...PUDENDAL NEURALGIA (AKA THE MOST IMPORTANT CAUSE OF PELVIC PAIN THAT YOU HAVE NEVER HEARD OF)
When I was in residency (before computers or Snapchat or memes! Yes, I am old!), we were encouraged to do A ...WAIT, NO PELVIC EXAM?
