An Interview with Dr. Emily Tetelman

What led you to the field of obstetrics/gynecology?

During my medical school clinical rotations I was immediately drawn to the field of OB/GYN. There was no “typical day” in the life of an OB/GYN. There was enough variety to keep me energized and enthusiastic about my work. I loved the fast-paced, diverse and mostly joyful atmosphere. I loved that I was able to utilize my ability to adapt to different environments quickly whether at the office, in the OR, or on labor and delivery. 

How many years have you been practicing in the field? 

I joined The Woman’s Health Pavilion in 2020. Prior to that I spent four years training at Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY.

What makes your job rewarding?

Ob/gyns have the distinctive privilege of providing comprehensive care to women throughout their lifetime, and are able to form meaningful relationships with patients at milestones such as conception, birth, and major surgery. The trust you are able to build with your patients is rewarding and truly amazing. There is still no better experience in medicine than getting to take a part in delivery or birth!

What brought you to the area and to this practice?

I am originally from Nassau County and wanted to return to the area to practice. I am excited to be a part of a group that fully engages with the community I have known and loved my whole life. 

Do you have special interests or areas of specialty as an ob/gyn?

Obstetrics and minimally invasive gynecologic surgery.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time? 

I enjoy spending time on the beach no matter the weather, especially in Montauk. In my spare time I can be found reading a good book or trying out a new local restaurant, I tend to indulge in reality TV when I’m post-call after a long shift.
