A Woman's Right to OB/GYN Services
and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

Are you able to access your doctor's office?

Many women with disabilities forgo medical care -- including OB/GYN services -- because of physical, communication, and attitudinal barriers. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and several state laws guarantee women with disabilities equal access to medical services. Know your rights!

If you answered "NO" to any of these questions, you may not be getting the medical care you need and your doctor may not be in compliance with federal and state disability laws.

If you think your rights are being violated ...

Speak up -- Tell the doctor immediately if you are comfortable doing so
