Rochester NY Abortion Services

The Center for Menstrual Disorders and Reproductive Choice provides abortion services from the time of a positive pregnancy test to 12 weeks gestation. Sedation and pain management are available at your request.

In 1986, Dr.Wortman founded a private office in Rochester which was dedicated, in part, to providing safe, sanitary, legal and confidential abortion services in an atmosphere that was non-judgmental and supportive. This private office eventually became the Center for Menstrual Disorders and Reproductive Choice (CMDRC). Today, “The Center” provides the most up-to-date, superior abortion services anywhere in New York State.

This is not an abortion clinic! We are a private gynecological office and many of our clients go on to become active patients of ours, returning for annual examinations, menstrual disorders, and care for a variety of gynecological concerns. Dr. Wortman, a Board Certified Gynecologist, offers a full range of gynecologic care and services.

Scenic Landscape - Rochester NY AbortionDr. Wortman has over 28 years of experience in providing first and second trimester abortions and has pioneered many “firsts” for the women of Upstate New York. These include the routine use of ultrasound before, during and after each procedure, the routine use of antibiotics following abortion procedures, and the lowest complication rate available for abortion procedures in Upstate New York. He was the first physician to offer meaningful pain relief to patients undergoing abortion procedures and to offer mid-trimester abortions in a confidential office setting in Upstate New York.

Concerned WomanAt The Center, Dr. Wortman, with his highly trained nursing staff, provides services that are tailored to each woman’s individual needs. In addition to “state of the art” medical care, we offer compassion and emotional support before, during, and after your visit. The decisions that surround an unwanted pregnancy are emotionally wrenching. Answering the question, “What should I do?” is difficult. You must ultimately decide what the best choice is for you. We are here to assist you in making a choice you “can live with”. We provide you with a choice and facilitate that choice whatever it may be. We are not just here to perform abortions but to truly help you in the decision-making process as well.

If you choose to terminate your pregnancy, it is our mission to provide that service in a safe, sanitary, legal, confidential and non-judgmental manner. We are here to safeguard your reproductive future so that you have a choice in the future. You should expect nothing less during this crisis in your life.

Whether you chose to receive your care at our office or at another facility we recommend a visit to The information and resources may prove very helpful to you and it is worthwhile touring their webpage.
