Dr. Valerie Ginsburg, an obstetrician/gynecologist who worked for Exempla Stapleton Ob-Gyn, has opened her own office, Stapleton Women’s Health, located at 2373 Central Park Blvd., Suite 202.
Ginsburg is a Denver native who graduated from Thomas Jefferson High School and the University of Pennsylvania. Then she returned to Denver for medical school and residency at the University of Colorado.
“My family is here, she said. “Denver is a good place to be. I’m a big telemark skier and I mountain bike.”
Ginsburg and her 6-year-old Portuguese water dog, Boomer, enjoy attending events throughout Stapleton.
“Stapleton is a great community,” she said. “People are active and lead healthy lifestyles. They want to be preventative about their health. They take good care of themselves.
“For most healthy women without significant medical problems, a gynecologist is considered a primary care provider. A lot of young, healthy women don’t need to see other providers. We talk about contraception and healthy behaviors with teenagers. We do family planning for women in that stage of life. We take care of women who are pregnant, caring for them during their pregnancy and delivery. And we work with other women who are experiencing changes in hormones and are having menopausal or premenopausal issues.”
Ginsburg is proud of her approach in helping women achieve and maintain good health.
“I think I have a very practical approach,” she said. “I strive to make women empowered to make their own decisions and to get to know what is going on with their body at all stages of life.”
Stapleton Women’s Health accepts most insurance, except Kaiser, including Medicare and Medicaid. The office is open from 8am to 5pm, Mon. through Fri.
