About Us

We have been providing excellent state-of-the-art OB-GYN care in the East Bay since 1978, when Bud Rotermund and Lu Hughes joined their practices to form Muir OB-GYN. The same goal of compassionate care delivered in a personal way with the top priority being the well being our patients has been maintained throughout the years. We are proud to be the area's most enduring group practice. Our doctors and nurse practitioners are among the most accomplished and experienced in the East Bay.

Drs. L. Sandy Hughes (son of the founder of our group), Gerald Katz, and Nadine Hanna have over 60 years of combined experience in the field of Obstetrics and Gynecology. We have delivered thousands of babies, yet each birth is a unique and fulfilling experience. We understand that we have the distinct privilege of being involved in this significant and exciting time in a couple's life.

We strive to be at the forefront of our field, bringing the most technologically advanced methods of care to all our patients, including Robotic assisted surgical procedures as well as minimally invasive laparoscopic and hysteroscopic procedures. We provide extensive in-office procedures as well, including hysteroscopy, endometrial ablation, and treatment of cervical dysplasia and abnormal uterine bleeding. We provide in office ultrasound evaluation to reduce time required to diagnose and treat most OB-GYN problems.

Our Board Certified Nurse Practitioners and Midwife provide the community's best personal care for routine visits and problems that don't require the more technical facilities utilized by our doctors.

We offer care for patients from Adolescence through Senescence, with each of our providers offering expertise in many different areas, allowing us to provide up to date and comprehensive solutions to almost all OB-GYN problems associated with every phase of life.

We found that many of our Obstetrical patients were coing to see us from the East County area, and in 2006 we opened our own office in Brentwood, which is now fully staffed 5 days a week.

We offer telephone advice which is available for a rapid responce to most questions Monday - Friday during normal business hours.
