Our Mission

Mystical Rose Obstetrics and Gynecology is a Catholic, pro-life, pro-woman medical practice that is committed to serving the health needs of its patients with professional excellence and compassionate care. We find inspiration for our model of womanly grace and beauty in the Mystical Rose, Mary the Mother of Jesus. We are honored to use our God-given talents to help women continue to lead healthy and happy lives.

Mystical Rose Obstetrics and Gynecology is proud to offer NaProTechnology, an approach to women’s health care which identifies and corrects underlying causes of illness in a way that respects and cooperates with a woman’s body. As part of this philosophy of health, we prescribe bioidentical hormones and do not administer artificial hormones of any kind, including those found in hormonal contraceptives. We provide support and referrals for services related to unexpected pregnancies, natural family planning, infertility, cord blood stem cell technology and hospice services. In keeping with our Catholic identity, we do not provide or refer for abortion, contraception, emergency contraception, sterilization, artificial reproductive technologies, embryonic stem cell or euthanasia services.

We look forward to serving our patients with enthusiasm and the highest level of care, and we pray that we may be a Blessing for Life, for the greater glory of God!


The Origin of Our Practice Name: Mystical Rose

The name of our medical practice comes from “Mystical Rose”, our favorite title for Mary, the Mother of God, found in the Litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary. It reflects Mary’s intimate relationship with the Holy Trinity through her “Yes” to God’s plan for salvation by bearing His son Jesus in her womb. Mary chose to be a blessing for life in the most radical way, and we pray that we may also choose to be a blessing for life through our service to you.

“Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word!” -Luke 1:38
