Lynette D. Stewart, MD, FACOG
“I love people and thought I would enjoy the developing relationships with women patients. I am good with my hands and thought I could develop into a skilled surgeon. It was important to me that whatever I chose to do, it involved helping people and making individual lives better. Ob/Gyn is the perfect platform for making a difference in the lives of women and families. I feel that I have the best job in the world – I am a one-woman welcoming committee for babies as they enter the world. And I am there for women as they age and become mothers and grandmothers.
“I enjoy the feeling that what I do makes a difference in people’s lives. I also feel that I am serving God through what I do. I hope that women can see that in me and know that they are nurtured and cared-for. I provide a clean, upscale environment so that patients can feel at home the moment that they walk into the facility. I also hope to give my patients information that empowers them to make good health decisions.
“My best quality as a practitioner is my ability to communicate and explain things in a down-to-earth way. Also, I am a skilled and experienced surgeon. I see my role as that of an educator. I outline the choices that the patients have and help them come to an educated decision about their health. I treat each person as I would want to have my sister or myself treated. I take joy in the success of others. I receive feedback every day from women who are grateful for the treatment that they are getting, and that provides nourishment for the soul and validation for my approach.”
In her spare time, Dr. Stewart loves dance and movement and taking salsa dance classes. She feels that God has called her to her vocation. She is also a Reiki Master.

Lisa Connor, CNM, MS, CCBE
I have dedicated my life to the service of caring for women and their families; I am passionate about what I do. I served 6 years in the US Military and have over 30 years of experience as a registered nurse. I graduated from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey as a Certified Nurse Midwife in 2000.
My approach to pregnancy and childbirth is a preventive, natural and holistic style and this style encompass my entire approach to health. I view pregnancy not as a medical condition, but rather a natural and sacred rite of passage into motherhood. Physical health, values, beliefs, relationships, emotional wellbeing and spirituality all affect pregnancy and childbirth. I am concerned about all these aspects of each individual. My job is to assist and help parents to discover their own path and experience the joy of parenthood.
Outside of Midwifery, I love reading, traveling, helping others and spending time with my family. I am a mother, grandmother, veteran and a midwife.

My past clinical and academic career consist of a legal nursing consultant, clinical academic in nursing, and worked for three years in home health/hospice care. My greatest joy comes from educating patients about their pregnancies and bringing forth their babies into the world. For me, the birthing of a baby never gets old. I am committed to providing the best medical care to all my patients from the very young teenager to the menopausal, aging patient. Providing healthcare to my patients is my passion over the past 25 years. My clinical skills include the provision of prenatal care, low-risk vaginal birth, GYN care, cervical and vaginal colposcopy, cryosurgery of the cervix, performance of HSG, LEEPs, insertions of IUDs, Nexplanon for all patients of appropriate age groups.
I want to provide all patients with the kind of healthcare I would want for my family. I am a mother of four—three boys and a girl—and a grandmother of five—three granddaughters and two grandsons—but I still enjoy what I do. In my spare time, I am with my two dogs and enjoy going for walks. I enjoy reading, as well as watching movies.
