Someone asked us: Do real doctors work at planned parenthood? Does planned parenthood have obgyns?
Yes! Licensed doctors and nurses — including obstetrician-gynecologists (OB/GYNs) — work at Planned Parenthood.
There are 600 Planned Parenthood health centers in 49 states. All of the clinicians at these health centers are trained, licensed medical professionals — just like at most other health care offices.
Licensed staff at health centers include nurses, nurse practitioners, certified nurse midwives, physician's assistants, physicians, counselors, sex educators, and more. This means people may visit our health centers for all sorts of reasons. You can come to Planned Parenthood for routine checkups and wellness exams, or for something more specific, like:
- Birth control
- STD testing and treatment, including HIV services
- Vaccines, including the HPV vaccine
- Cancer screenings (like breast exams, HPV/Pap tests, and testicular and prostate exams)
- Gender care, including hormone therapy
- Prenatal or postpartum care
- Abortion services
Check out our full list of services. Some services are available at every Planned Parenthood health center, while others are available only in certain locations. You can contact your nearest Planned Parenthood health center to find out where you can get the service you’re looking for.
Our staff are dedicated experts at providing high quality, compassionate, non-judgmental health care. Planned Parenthood has been a trusted provider of sexual and reproductive health care for over 100 years, and our health centers continue to make advancements in reproductive health technology.
