Women’s Health Care Services
At Academy Women’s Healthcare Associates, our vision is to provide physical, emotional, and spiritual care and support to all our patients. Over nearly a quarter-century in the Colorado Springs community, we have focused on that vision as we provide high-level, comprehensive women’s health care that includes pregnancy care, menopause and post menopause symptom management, and annual gynecologic exams.
We are proud of our history of service to the Colorado Springs community. At the same time, we are committed to bringing the most innovative, leading-edge treatment to all our patients.
At Academy Women’s Healthcare Associates, we have been privileged to assist in bringing more than 32,000 babies into the world. We work with women from the moment they begin planning their pregnancy through delivery. We respect and honor women and their partners, and work with them to support the experience they choose.
From the first ultrasound, throughout your pregnancy, labor, and delivery, we are at your side helping you understand the changes your body and your baby are going through — and helping you make choices that ensure the healthiest experience possible for mom and baby.
At Academy Women's Healthcare Associates, our mission is to provide comprehensive, innovative women’s health care, centered around you. We are committed to working with you to provide education, and to listen to your concerns, so that together we can devise a plan to maximize not just your reproductive and gynecologic health, but your overall well-being.
We do this in a warm, confidential setting, where our physicians and caregivers believe caring for women’s health is a calling as well as a profession.
Additional Women's Health Services
Free Pregnancy Screenings
We welcome all women who believe they could be pregnant to visit us for a free pregnancy screening, whether or not they are patients of Academy Women’s Healthcare Associates. For prompt service, we recommend arriving at our offices before 9 a.m.
We understand the emotional pain that being unable to conceive a child can cause, and we are committed to helping couples who are struggling with infertility. If you and your partner have tried unsuccessfully to conceive for three to six months or more, you may be frustrated, and you may have many questions. Several members of our team are experienced at addressing fertility issues and can help provide you with information. We will sit down with you to carefully and sensitively review the health histories of both partners, and we may be able to make suggestions for lifestyle changes that may increase your odds of conception.
We also can perform a number of diagnostic tests to help determine what is causing you to have difficulty conceiving. If tests reveal low sperm count or low sperm motility, we work closely with local urology practices, and can refer your partner for treatment.
Sometimes, tests reveal that a woman is not ovulating or is not producing an expected number of follicles during each cycle. In that case, we may prescribe medication to help stimulate an increase in hormones. We will carefully monitor you, performing in-house ultrasound at specific days during your cycle to gauge whether the medication is effective. We can alter the medication dose based on your body’s response. In addition, we work closely with practices that specialize in more complex infertility treatments and can offer referrals when necessary.

At Academy Women’s Healthcare Associates, we use AIUM certified ultrasound units. We can also provide digital images and video clips of your ultrasounds directly to you via email or on your smartphone. All ultrasound images are stored securely in the Cloud. Access to these images will be emailed and/or texted to the patient after the ultrasound. Please note that we do not allow videotaping of the examination. If you have any questions, please feel free to give us a call at 719-571-4500.
