About Dr. Gene Vandenboom
“My background has shaped my practice. I was a working-class student throughout high school, college, and medical school. I worked in the cafeteria, kitchen, and housekeeping at my high school, worked several years in the kitchen at Baptist Memorial Hospital, and many years as a Central Supply orderly at the old Menorah Medical Center. This has given me an appreciation and respect for hospital employees at all level of service. I carry that notion of respect throughout everything I do, including the care of my patients.
I have two primary goals. In order of importance, the first is to do everything possible to ensure the safety of mom and baby. Secondly, I strive for each and every pregnancy to be a normal, vaginal delivery.
I always prioritize my patients’ welfare. I initially recommend medical management for gynecological problems since this poses less risk and is more economical. I recommend surgery only after medically-appropriate attempts at management are exhausted.”
