Caring for women throughout all stages of life since 1970
Welcome to Simmonds, Martin & Helmbrecht, conveniently located at 5 offices in Maryland. Founded in 1970, we established a tradition of great medical care by emphasizing strong personal relationships between patients and physicians.
Our practice is dedicated to continuing medical education and training, and we offer many onsite services including high definition ultrasound, minimally invasive surgery, operative hysteroscopy, and comprehensive antepartum testing.
Meet our Physicians and Providers
Welcome Dr. Gary Ott
"After 20 years of performing highly effective corrective procedures, I'm happy to share that urinary incontinence is not just highly treatable, it's actually curable in many people. I hope to get women talking about it and erase the stigma. I am very excited to have been able to help so many women get back to exercising, chasing after their children, and living well with confidence again."
Welcome Dr. Tara Olson
Dr. Olson attended medical school at the Medical University of South Carolina and completed her residency at UCLA.
"I chose SMH because I wanted to be in a well-established practice that was well run, but to also be in a supportive environment with senior physicians who would help me grow as a physician."
Welcome Melissa Zarych
Melissa attended nursing school at Georgetown University and completed her master's degree at the University of Pennsylvania.
"I value the collaboration between doctors and midwives that Simmonds, Martin & Helmbrecht has made an integral part of the practice. I am glad to be part of a team that works hard to provide the best care possible."
In the News
Congratulations to our very own Dr. Albert Simmonds on being named a 2016 Washingtonian Top Doctor!
We are also excited to share that our practice is featured in the latest issue.
Meet our Certified Nurse-Midwives
Supported by our physicians, we also offer services from certified nurse-midwives for low-risk obstetric patients to consider. Our midwives provide patients with prenatal care and delivery services, while ensuring that an adequate safety net exists should the care of a physician be needed.
NEW! As of January 9, 2017, we are pleased to offer in-office lab services to patients who visit our Damascus location. We will begin offering lab services at more locations later in the month.
