    Hi, I'm Dr. Lyda Pung. I'm an OB-GYN who practices with the Independence Women's Clinic located at Centerpoint Medical Center in Independence, Missouri.

    Every patient that comes in ultimately has a unique story. I think you have to listen well in order to treat well. Educating the patient is incredibly important to me. That's probably one of the more important things that I like to focus on when I see a patient.

    We are in a population that does present some higher-risk obstetric issues and we're comfortable dealing with that. I'm well-trained in robotic surgery and all of my partners are as well.

    Initially when I was in medical school I wanted to be a family physician because I liked continuity of care. Then I had my surgical rotation and I loved surgery. And when I eventually got to my very last rotation, which was my OB-GYN rotation, I realized that continuity of care and surgical procedures could be combined into one specialty and it was the perfect fit for me.

"As OB-GYNs, we have the opportunity to care for a patient throughout so many important milestones and discuss topics that are quite personal. I want to empower and educate women regarding their health care and help them to have the best quality of life."
