In 1958, Dr. Malcolm Brochin, a Yale-trained Obstetrician/Gynecologist, opened a practice in New Haven County. He hired a partner, then another, and a third. This was the beginning of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Infertility Group: a thriving practice that has cared for hundreds of women in the community. In 1975, we became the first private practice both at Yale and in in the state of Connecticut to add Certified Nurse-Midwives; thus we became a complete package.
Over the subsequent decades, we continued to evolve along with the changing science and landscape of OB/Gyn. Because of scientific advancements, most infertility treatments such as intrauterine insemination and in vitro fertilization are now reserved for highly specialized clinics—and we are delighted when couples return to us for prenatal care and childbirth! While we still evaluate, diagnose, and treat some of the more routine infertility issues, it is not the main focus of who we are as a practice. As we’ve evolved as a practice, we wanted our name to change with us.
Who are we now? We are Connecticut Coastal OB/GYN– a diverse group of doctors and midwives who, as a group, can see more sides of the total picture; and we are committed to helping you, our patient. The days of “one size fits all” medical care are gone. Our group is unified with respect to our commitment to excellent quality of care, collaboration to improve outcomes, and compassion toward all.
Our mission is to reach out to all women and find the perfect match for your needs within our group, whether it be medical, surgical, preventative, or educational. We look forward to including you in the journey and welcome any feedback along the way!
