When the time comes to choose an OB/GYN physician, for an annual exam, prenatal care, contraception or any number of reproductive needs, many women rely on a recommendation.

Generations of mothers and daughters

In Tucson, generations of women have trusted El Rio OB/GYN Associates for their care. El Rio doctors like Jose Rios, have cared for Tucson’s mothers, sisters and daughters for three decades, “Ours is a well-established practice … we have cared for multiple generations. After 30 years, we’re now delivering babies from babies we delivered.”

These generations of women who had their babies delivered by a doctor at El Rio Health have confidence that serves as a solid recommendation for the rest of us.

Serving the whole community

3 decades

A look on the website, Facebook page or tour provides a snapshot of the lives they touch, expectant moms, excited grandmas, ecstatic new parents and women grateful for family planning options.  Their mission is simple; they provide OB/GYN services to everyone in our community, and that includes all women – underserved, uninsured, women with AHCCHS or private insurance, students – all are welcome. Tucson benefits from this approach … the community health center model allows for comprehensive, affordable care for the community.

Meeting the needs of every woman 

All El Rio OB/GYN providers have privileges at Tucson Medical Center for deliveries, mammography, emergency services and beyond. “Our goal is to provide state-of-the-art services for everyone,” says Dr. Rios. “The steady increase in the number of patients that receive care at El Rio is a true testament to the reputation we have built and we are in the position to see even more women with the addition of Dr. Taylor McCauley and Dr. Tiffany Woods Karsten to our practice.”

The bilingual staff of OB/GYNs, a Nurse Practitioner and a Nurse Midwife allow the practice to meet the needs of their growing number of patients and embrace innovative technologies and techniques.

The practice specializes in gestational diabetes management in addition to providing annual well-woman exams, prenatal and postpartum care, family planning and contraception, reproductive endocrine services, menopausal services, oncology services and free pregnancy testing.
