“After having the privilege of working with Dr. Carbiener and her staff during my medical school training, I knew I wanted to return to Daytona Beach and become a part of their team. I am especially excited to have the chance to give back to FSU and teach medical students,” said Dr. Bhogal.
Dr. Bhogal is a graduate of Florida State University College of Medicine, and trained at the Daytona Beach Regional Campus. Although originally from the South Florida/Palm Beach area, Dr. Bhogal felt accepting the position with Halifax OBGYN was like ‘coming home’. Dr. Bhogal said that it was striking to see how well the office gets along, and cares so much for their patients. Another deciding factor in selecting Halifax OBGYN was how much she could learn from Dr. Carbiener about mentoring and giving back to the community like Dr. Carbiener has done throughout her career.
Founded by Drs. Tom Stavoy and Carl Schwenker in 1988, Halifax OBGYN started as a general OBGYN practice located adjacent to Halifax Health. Growing in size and scope over the next two decades, they built the showcase Twin Lakes Medical Center in Daytona Beach. The location and affiliation with other medical groups in the same facility, has minimized delays and the need to travel to multiple locations for care.
Halifax OBGYN is full-service obstetrics and gynecology (OBGYN) practice. They have led the way with new minimally invasive surgery techniques, including the ability to perform major gynecologic surgeries through tiny incisions with minimal recovery. Currently, the vast majority of surgeries performed at Halifax OBGYN are to remove endometriosis, ovarian disease, fibroids or complete hysterectomies, all with tiny incisions. Recovery is either a same day discharge, or an overnight hospital stay. Drs. Baldwin and Cortez are proficient in the DiVinci Robotic System and perform robotic procedures at Halifax Health.
The practice consists of Dr. Thomas Stavoy, Dr. Pamela Carbiener, Dr. Stephen Cortez, Dr. Cynthia Baldwin, Dr. Marjorie Bhogal, Laurie Bell, CNM, DNP, and Patricia Kruse, CNM, DNP. They offer care for teenagers, women in their reproductive years, and women that are pre and post-menopausal. They also have infertility services, contraception planning, and 4D Sonograms. They currently have a staff of 24 and accept most insurance plans. The practice is located at 1890 LPGA Blvd, Suite 160 in Daytona Beach, FL, and is open Monday through Thursday from 8:00 am - 5:00 pm, and Friday from 8:00 am - 2:30 pm.
