Western PA Women's Healthcare Associates

June 28, 2017

Dear Patients:

We would like to inform you of important changes with our practice.

Effective August 1, 2017, Carol Krupski, MD, Diane Ichikawa, MD and Kathleen Carroll, MD and the staff of Western PA Women's Healthcare Associates will join UPMC University of Pittsburgh Physicians.

Sonya Noh, MD will be continuing GYN care in her own private practice. Danielle Smith, MD will be continuing OB and GYN care in the Allegheny Health Network system. Shirley Woo, MD will be relocating to Houston, Texas.

All of us have taken pride over the last three decades to provide good care to our patients as an independent practice. However, due to the demands of long hours, physician availability, and patient volume, we are no longer able to meet the needs of our patients under the current practice model. As of the effective date August 1, 2017, the practice will continue their care under separate entities.

Obstetrical and gynecological appointments with Carol Krupski, MD and Kathleen Carroll MD, and GYN appointments with Diane Ichikawa, MD will continue at the same practice locations listed below:

850 Clairton Blvd, Suite 3100, Pittsburgh, PA 15236
Fax: 412-466-4668
300 Halket Street, Suite 5730, Pittsburgh, PA 15213
Fax: 412-641-6227
119 VIP Drive, Suite 206, Wexford, PA 15090
Fax: 412-641-6227


If you wish to continue your care with these physicians, no action is necessary on your part. However, please note:

  • All obstetrical patients will be delivered at Magee Women's Hospital under the care of Carol Krupski, MD, Kathleen Carroll, MD and the 6 physicians of OB/GYN Associates of Pittsburgh.
  • UPMC and non-Highmark patients may continue their care without interruption.
  • Highmark patients may be eligible to continue their care with our practice by calling the UPMC call center at 1-855-646-UPMC (8762) or Medicare patients can call 1-855-946-UPMC (8762).


Sonya Noh, MD will remain in the Pleasant Hills and Wexford area and will be accepting most all insurances including UPMC and Highmark.
