A strong desire to help people optimize their health and family objectives inspired Dr. Philip Clements to go into medicine. After 6 years of working per diem with Burdett Birth Center, he joined our team as a full-time provider just a few months ago. As a generalist (OB/GYN), with a primary interest in OB, Dr. Clements brings over 25 years in practice, is board certified with the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG) and adds a wealth of experience and knowledge to our team. Dr. Clements specifically looks forward to contributing his expertise in carefully managing high-risk pregnancies.
“I’ve had the opportunity over the years to work at Albany Medical Center, St. Peter’s Hospital and Samaritan Hospital and Burdett Birth Center,” he says. “Patients can be confident that they will receive quality care and still be able to have the birthing experience that they desire.”
What Dr. Clements loves most about Burdett Birth Center is that we provide care for women with low-risk pregnancies which allows flexibility in creating the birth experience that expectant mothers are looking for while having the capabilities to handle any issues that arise. He also likes the family culture at Burdett.
“Our doctors and midwives are a strong, close-knit team who work together to provide exceptional birthing experiences for families,” he says. “Burdett Birth Center is also one of the only places in the Capital Region that has Labor, Delivery, Recovery and Postpartum LDRP rooms.”
His advice to women choosing a birth center? “Choose a place where you feel most comfortable because having a baby will be one of the most memorable experiences of your life.”
Aside from practicing medicine and helping families bring new additions into the world, Dr. Clements enjoys many spectator sports and cheering on all of New York’s professional teams.
