Amber Truehart, MD, is an expert in pediatric and adolescent gynecology. She specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of gynecologic conditions affecting infants, girls, teens and young women, such as painful or heavy menstrual bleeding, labial adhesions and vulvar disorders. In 2018, she was recognized for her advanced skill in pediatric and adolescent gynecology care from the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Dr. Truehart provides preventive and routine care for girls and young women up to age 26. She also serves as a resource for local pediatricians and gynecologists who have questions about complex adolescent gynecological problems.

Additionally, Dr. Truehart is trained in family planning. She specializes in contraception and abortion care. Her clinical interests include contraception for young women with complex medical issues who prefer or medically need to avoid pregnancy. She works with patients to find the best contraception method for them, evaluating their medical conditions, current medications and social situation. Dr. Truehart educates and empowers women to understand their medical conditions and make healthy choices.

A dedicated educator and researcher, Dr. Truehart is currently investigating methods to effectively educate medical residents and other healthcare providers on emergency contraception and adolescent sexual health. She strives to improve patient care and has several active research projects seeking to improve telehealth in adolescent patients and increase contraception counseling during inpatient hospital stays for women with complicated medical conditions.
