When the need for an Ob Gyn physician arises in a women’s life, it’s about more than just medical care. The dedication and attention of physicians and practices to a woman’s unique and ever-changing needs are invaluable.
When the need for an Ob Gyn physician arises in a women’s life, it’s about more than just medical care. The dedication and attention of physicians and practices to a woman’s unique and ever-changing needs are invaluable. Finding an Ob Gyn is about establishing a trusted relationship between physician and patient, whether it be before, during, or after childbirth. At Women’s Health Connecticut, we know this starts with the right physician. When Dr. Maryam Hedayatzadeh joined Women’s Health Care of New England in 2009 and her “little sister,” Dr. Marjan Hedayatzadeh joined Obstetrics & Gynecology Associates in 2010, Women’s Health received a double infusion of enthusiasm and commitment.
If you are looking for a way to tell these twin sisters apart, the love each Dr. Hedayatzadeh has for what she does will not serve as that differentiating factor. Born in Iran, Maryam and Marjan immigrated with their family to California at the age of five. Growing up in a family of engineers, the sisters always knew that they wanted to be doctors and it was Maryam, the eldest by five minutes, who led the charge.
From a very young age Dr. Maryam knew she wanted to deliver babies so the choice to become an Ob Gyn doctor was clear. “I love helping women; I am a big women’s advocate, and women’s health is a great way to teach and empower women” says Dr. Maryam Hedayatzadeh who is currently working on her da Vinci® robotic surgery training. She hopes to bring robotic surgical services to Women’s Health of New England fairly soon.
Dr. Marjan realized that obstetrics and gynecology was also the medical field for her while attending the University of California. Her commitment to provide one-on-one patient care is evident through her dedication in helping women find solutions to female issues. Dr. Marjan Hedayatzadeh’s devotion to her patients shines through when she says, “Delivering babies is being a part of a very special time in someone’s life…and I am able to share in that moment with a couple, multiple times a day! Whatever challenges may come with being an Ob Gyn, the outcome is so worth it.”
While completing their residency training at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, both Drs. Maryam and Marjan realized that the east coast was where they wanted to stay. Though on slightly different timelines, their professional paths remained intertwined when they both joined practices affiliated with Women’s Health Connecticut. Drawn to their respective practices by the opportunity to learn from senior partners and to be part of a large group of physicians, Drs. Maryam and Marjan found a home to do what they are passionate about.
At Women’s Health Connecticut, we are connected. “I love being a twin, she is my best friend, [and our] patients and staff have fun with it!” says Dr. Maryam Hedayatzadeh. Fairfield County has exceptional women’s health care to offer, may it be at Women’s Health Care of New England or Obstetrics & Gynecology Associates and it is in part due to Drs. Maryam and Marjan. Thanks to these twin sisters, there is a double dose of dedication available to women and the babies they bring into this world.
