Book an Appointment - Richard M Wind, MD

FOR OVER THIRTY YEARS, I HAVE SERVED AS THE OBSTETRICIAN OF CHOICE TO THE HASIDIC POPULATION OF WILLIAMSBURG . BEGINNING IN 1980, I WAS INSTRUMENTAL IN THE FOUNDING OF THE ODA  PRIMARY CARE HEALTH CENTER, IN THE POSITION OF DIRECTOR OF OBGYN (AND FOR A TIME AS MEDICAL DIRECTOR) FROM 1980 UNTIL 2004,AND CONTINUING IN SOLO PRACTICE UNTIL THE PRESENT.  THREE GENERATIONS OF WOMEN IN WILLIAMSBURG HAVE BEEN CARED FOR IN A RESPECTFUL AND SOLICITOUS MANNER. FREQUENTLY, BABIES I DELIVERED IN THE 1980'S AND 1990'S HAVE RETURNED TO MY PRACTICE TO HAVE ME DELIVER THEIR BABIES, AND MANY EXTENDED FAMILIES HAVE MOST OF THEIR BABIES DELIVERED BY ME, THEREBY VOUCHSAFING THEIR CONTINUED DESIRE TO BE DELIVERED AT MT. SINAI BETH ISRAEL.  CONCURRENTLY, MY OFFICE IN MANHATIAN BOASTS A DEVOTED FOLLOWING OF INTERNATIONAL PATIENTS, WHO FEEL COMFORTABLE WITH THE PERSONAL CARE RENDERED BY ME, REINFORCED BY MY WORKING KNOWLEDGE OF SEVEN LANGUAGES.

AS THE SENIOR OBSTETRICIAN STILL PRACTICING ACTIVELY AT MT. SINAI BETH ISRAEL (WITH MORE THAN 130 PATIENTS PER YEAR DELIVERED BY ME IN MY SOLO PRACTICE), I FEEL THAT I HAVE SERVED AS A REASSURING AND AUTHORITATIVE PRESENCE IN THE LABOR ROOM, WHERE MANY OF THE CURRENT ATTENDINGS HAVE RELIED ON MY EXPERIENCE TO ASSIST THEM IN THE CARE OF THEIR PATIENTS,PARTICULARLY AS THEY RECALLED HAVING HAD ME CONTRIBUTE TO THEIR TRAINING AS RESIDENTS OR AS MEDICAL STUDENTS OVER THE PAST DECADES.
