Finding an OB-GYN that provides comprehensive, yet compassionate women’s health care will secure your peace of mind. For a clinic that offers quality services with a Christian mindset, contact J. Harley Barrow, Jr., M.D. in Mountain Home, AR.

His office, The Center for Women, is committed to administering a full spectrum of women’s health care services to north central Arkansas and southern Missouri patients in all stages of life. From routine exams to health counseling, their team is ready to help. They accept new patients and offer same- or next-day appointments for urgent issues, so you can rest easy knowing they’ll be there when you need them.

If you’re thinking of starting a family or are pregnant, they offer comprehensive counseling and pregnancy services, including 3D and 4D sonography to give you a better view of your child than traditional ultrasounds provide. If you’re not ready to start a family yet, the gynecologist and nurse practitioner offer contraception advice and methods, including birth control pills and long-acting reversible contraception such as IUDs.

The Center for Women office is the only clinic within three hours of their location that provides MonaLisa Touch®. This laser therapy program addresses issues such as atrophic vaginitis, painful intercourse, and lichen sclerosis without the use of hormones or surgery, helping you manage or eliminate painful symptoms developed in menopause.

When you need women’s health care services from a provider who will take the time to make you comfortable and listen to your concerns, J. Harley Barrow, Jr., M.D. and his team at The Center for Women will be there for you. Call them at (870) 425-7300 or contact them online to schedule an appointment.
