Women First Health Center is committed to providing women with a comfortable and welcoming environment where they can receive optimal standard of care while establishing a healthy work environment for its staff. The doctors practice current medicine and make it mandatory that each physician pursue continuing educational processes in efforts to maintain updated medical standards and provide patients with quality care.

The practice was founded in 2006 by Dr. Sylvester and Dr. Youngren. Both doctors trained together at Saint Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, NJ. Although they each continued their careers in different parts of the country after graduating, they were excited to finally fulfill their dream of working together. Dr. Lo, who also trained with Dr. Sylvester and Dr. Youngren, joined the practice a few years later. The three doctors, who became close friends while colleagues in residency have found their similar styles in patient care allows them to work well together personally and professionally.

After working closely with Dr. DeSantos at Saint Barnabas Medical Center for four years, the doctors unanimously felt that she would be an amazing addition to Women First Health Center. Besides being close colleagues, they have formed a unique friendship. Dr. DeSantos is certified in robotics, which brings extra strength in the area of minimally invasive surgery to the practice.

Through our website, you will find many tools and services that we offer. If you have any further questions or should you need more information, please feel free to call our office. Our goal is to educate each patient and work together to find the answers you need.
