Big Changes are coming to Uptown OB/GYN of New York!

Welcome to Uptown OB/GYN of New York

Exciting changes are upcoming for our practice so thank you for visiting our website.  

New doctor!

Since we opened in 2010, Dr Laura Cha has delivered over 400 babies, met thousands of patients and made many many new friends.  It has been a blessing to be a part of so many people’s lives as a solo practioner, but now we look forward to the next chapter.  To ensure the best quality and continuity of care, Uptown is happy to welcome a new physician to the practice, Dr Michelle Metz (please refer to her bio page for details).  Dr Metz will be providing high quality prenatal care alongside Dr Cha as well as lending her expertise in all gynecologic areas.

New location!

On top of having a new doctor, WE HAVE MOVED!  Please note that Uptown OBGYN is now at 155 East 76th street (between Lexington and 3rd ave).  Our move will allow for our expansion and our commitment to personal quality medical care. 

Despite all these new changes, our obstetric and inpatient care will remain at Mount Sinai Hospital at 1176 5th ave (and 99th street).  We are also still taking the same commercial insurance plans (Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Aetna, Oxford Freedom, United Healthcare, Cigna, MultiplanPHCS), but please call or email to confirm.  

If you are an existing patient and have yet to create a patient portal login, please email or call the office to activate your account and confirm a current email address.  The Athena patient portal allows you to send messages, pay your bills and view lab results in a safe and secure electronic environment.

We hope to see you soon in our new home.  All of our other contact information remains the same.  If you would like to make an appointment, please either use the link below or contact the office.

We look forward to seeing you.


Laura S Cha, MD, MPH, FACOG
