Dr. Clarence Lamb, Jr. and the TriHealth Women’s Services team are proud to announce a few important developments as we grow and strive to better serve our patients. These changes are a continuation of our on-going commitment to make TriHealth your preferred partner for women’s health services in every stage of life.
On August 14, 2018 we moved to a larger, newly renovated space in the nearby Rookwood area. While we have enjoyed many years at our office in Pleasant Ridge, this new space will offer better access and a modern facility for our valued patients. As a part of that move, the practice name is now TriHealth Women’s Services Rookwood.

As an OB-GYN provider, Dr. Lamb’s favorite aspect of his job is bringing new life into this world. He enjoys the family and interpersonal relationships that he’s able to develop with patients as they move through the phases of their lives. ” I want my patients to feel comfortable when they visit my office. I want them to know that they have chosen a doctor who cares about them and appreciates them as a person and that I am truly concerned that they receive the best care possible. I try to get to know each of my patients and understand their life and unique needs. I want to get to know them beyond their medical condition.”, says Dr. Lamb.
While delivering babies is an important part of his practice, Dr. Lamb also provides general gynecology care and he specializes in minimally invasive surgical procedures. These new procedures offer easier and quicker recovery for his patients.
