Your health and safety is our priority and the reason we are here. We monitor our staff and our practice protocols daily. We pledge to provide or guide you to the best women’s healthcare available. With the guidance of the CDC and other medical experts, we continually update our protocols and policies regarding COVID and other infection control concerns.

At Swor Women’s Care, we always have and continue to practice advanced infection control protocols. We have added extra health measures such as having handwash/sanitizers and masks available upon your arrival if needed. We sanitize the office daily and have limited traffic and patient volumes and offer in-vehicle waiting options. We have not and do not seen patients in the office with COVID-19 symptoms, related travel or contact exposures but can offer advice by phone or portal.
For everyone’s peace of mind, patients and/or support persons are still required to wear a mask at this point. All staff, patients and visitors will answer COVID-19 screening questions and have their temperature checked. Masks are optional in exam rooms for healthy fully vaccinated people. For our staff who still are susceptible to COVID, we will continue to require masks, but it is optional for all others.
Based on CDC and expert guidance, masks and social distancing are optional for approved members of our staff. Other pandemic precautions will still remain in place, especially screening, testing and quarantine for people with viral symptoms.
Please continue to follow our current updates on our Facebook and Instagram accounts.

An Unique Practice
Swor Women’s Care is a unique Sarasota OBGYN practice. Some patients we see only for OBGYN services, knowing that women’s health screening is already being managed elsewhere. Some patients expect our practice to be their primary care provider, despite our recommendations to designate a family physician or internist. Most often, we provide annual women’s health screening and access for Sarasota OBGYN care, that compliments the regular care by a primary care provider.
