Dr. Theresa May-Hartle is certified through the American Osteopathic Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology.  She is a graduate of Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine.She performed both her internship and residency at Botsford Hospital.  Dr. May-Hartle continues to lecture at Michigan State University and is known as the "pessary queen."  A pessary insertion is an alternative to surgery to pull vaginal organs back into place and prevent incontinence.  Other surgical solutions include Balloon ablation (an alternative to hysterectomy), essure tubals (a permanent alternative to birth control), and micro-invasive surgery for pelvic pain and bleeding. 

All physicians at DeWitt Women's Health are board-certified in obstetrics and gynecology, and all are accepting new patients. 

"I am mother to three children, all delivered at Ingham.  So, I've been in situations very similar to my mothers-to-be.  I want patients to feel they can call anytime and get a fast response from myself or a nurse.  There's nothing more rewarding than getting a hug from a patient who feels I've made a difference in her life."

"I want my patients to see me as compassionate and experienced. I want my patients to feel I respect them with dignity, and see them as individuals with unique needs."

Shah, Upendra

He completed his residency at Long Island College Hospital and his fellowship at Cook County Hospital. Dr. Shah has a special focus on reproductive endocrinological fertility.

DeWitt Women's Health is one of Lansing's long-established women's health practices, with physicians that are caring, friendly, and concerned with each patient's health and well-being.

Some obstetrical patients question seeing five doctors during their pregnancy. We believe this provides better coverage. Mothers in labor can expect their doctor to be well-rested and ready to give attentive care at the time of childbirth.

Our physician group has been together 10 years, so we have a consistent philosophy of care and a camaraderie with one another's practices.  Patients get uniform care, and we work at meeting each patient's unique needs.  As male practitioners, we have not experienced childbirth, but we have learned a great deal from our women practice partners . . . . and thus, have a special understanding empathy for both our obstetrical and gynecological patients.
