Holistic Gynecology

As a board certified obstetrician/gynecologist who is also board certified in integrative holistic medicine, Dr. Eden Fromberg is fully trained, credentialed, and experienced in both traditional and integrative medical theory and practice. Her dedication to caring well for her patients, years of clinical experience, and interest in current research and innovation give her the opportunity to sort out complex issues and develop customized treatment plans. Dr. Fromberg’s medical practice at SOHO OB/GYN in New York City is a sanctuary for truly holistic women’s health care. Patients are given the information, time, resources, and ongoing support that they need to achieve true health and well being in any or all aspects of their lives.

A visit with Dr. Eden Fromberg reaches beyond the typical GYN office visit to truly delve into any issues of concern and keep patients healthy for years to come, including the essential underlying nutritional, metabolic, and hormonal aspects of women’s health. Generous time and focused attention are devoted, with the goal of providing comprehensive, meticulous, personalized, truly holistic care.

Dr. Fromberg’s expertise and ongoing commitment to keeping abreast of current research and clinical updates allows her to treat a range and depth of women’s health conditions. She listens carefully with an open mind and broad perspective, thinks outside the box, and is adept at diagnosing and sorting out complex problems that may be dismissed or not adequately addressed by conventional gynecological care. Her willingness to take the time and thought to seek out and treat the root causes underlying symptoms, and her ability to offer her patients meaningful information, alternative perspectives, and a range of potential options, allow her patients to find the care and relief they need while often avoiding the potential side effects and risks of pharmaceutical medications, synthetic hormones and unnecessary surgery.

Dr. Fromberg is dedicated to caring well for her patients, and she provides detailed, personalized guidance in making informed choices with compassion and respect for each woman’s personal orientation and individual needs. Even problems that may seem straightforward are handled thoroughly, gently, and with kindness and care. Although wellness, prevention, and nutrition are emphasized, conventional care and medications always remain options for women who desire it, or when alternatives do not fully address their needs. Dr. Fromberg makes herself available by email for ongoing contact, and makes every effort to see patients with urgent needs on the same day whenever possible, since she knows that many problems truly cannot wait.
