Aster OB/GYN, a comprehensive medical practice in Manhattan's Upper West Side, offers the highest-quality care in a comfortable atmosphere. Located at 240 West 98th Street, the office is open Monday through Thursday until 8 p.m. and Friday and Saturday until 5 p.m. Aster OB/GYN accommodates patients in need of same-day care. The physicians at Aster OB/GYN are well established in their field. Dr. Farris Fahmy, a 1989 graduate of Cairo University Faculty of Medicine, completed residencies and fellowships at facilities including St. Joseph's Medical Center, Saint Vincent Catholic Medical Center, and Montefiore Medical Center. Before joining Aster OB/GYN, Dr. Fahmy served as Director of the Washington Heights Family Center and as a Clinical Assistant Professor at Columbia University's New York Presbyterian Hospital. Aster OB/GYN's other physician, Dr. Jeffrey Yu, graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science in Physiological Science from the University of California, Los Angeles prior to obtaining his medical degree from Albany Medical College. Dedicated to providing health care to those who might not otherwise receive it, he holds a longstanding history as a volunteer with groups including Grace Medical Missions and Lifewater International, providing medical care in the underserved areas of Bangladesh and Mexico. He also volunteered at the Central City Community Health Center in Los Angeles, an institution that supports families with low incomes in the area. At Aster OB/GYN, Dr. Fahmy and Dr. Yu treat patients for a variety of concerns, from routine gynecological checkups to matters that require surgical treatment. Minimally invasive surgeries can be performed on-site at Aster OB/GYN, including permanent sterilization, diagnostic hysteroscopy, and endometrial ablation for heavy bleeding.
