Our Values

Dr. MacCurdy is a “Life Affirming” physician who believes in the dignity of every human person. He strives to uphold the Hippocratic Oath which Physicians worldwide used to take going back to ancient Greece. It has been modified in recent times to accommodate “modern” philosophy which isn’t always best for the health of patients. The oath in the original form states the following which is particularly relevant to the field of Obstetrics/Gynecology:

“I will prescribe regimens for the good of my patients according to my ability and my judgment and never do harm to anyone.

I will give no deadly medicine to any one if asked, nor suggest any such counsel; and similarly I will not give a woman the means (medications or medical devices) to cause an abortion.

But I will preserve the purity of my life and my arts.”
