About Dekalb OB/GYN Affiliates

Dekalb OB/GYN Affiliates is a women-owned and operated practice offering a high level of conservative, patient-centered care. Shirley Rigaud-Echols, MD, and the expert team of women’s health providers bring more than 20 years of experience to their private practice in Decatur, Georgia.

From adolescents to mature adults, the compassionate team at Dekalb OB/GYN Affiliates provides comprehensive OB/GYN care for women at all stages of life. They offer a variety of preventive health and well-woman services like birth control counseling, STD testing, Pap smears, and menopause management. 

Their skilled providers take a conservative approach to treating gynecological conditions, including common causes of infertility like endometriosis, uterine fibroids, and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Dekalb OB/GYN Affiliates is fully equipped with in-office ultrasound imaging technology, which the providers use to monitor pregnancies or determine the underlying cause of gynecological symptoms like chronic pelvic pain or irregular periods. 

For exceptional care from an all-woman team, call Dekalb OB/GYN Affiliates, or schedule an appointment online today. Shirley Rigaud-Echols, MD is a full-time OB/GYN, actively working and admitting patients daily to Emory Decatur Hospital and Northside Hospital.
