Dr. Cynthia Krause is a board certified Obstetrician-Gynecologist and has practiced gynecology in NYC for over 20 years. She is warm and caring, as well as professional and sees herself as an advocate for her patients. “What I like most about private practice is getting to know each patient and trying to help them with their individual needs and concerns. I try to be a problem solver and an active guide.”

Dr. Krause began her medical career in primary care internal medicine at Baltimore City Hospital, an affiliate of Johns Hopkins University, but quickly realized that her true interest lay in women’s health. After completing 2 years of her residency, she moved to New York and completed a four year residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Mount Sinai Hospital where she is a Clinical Assistant Professor.

She spent 9 years practicing Obstetrics and Gynecology before returning to Mount Sinai full-time to serve as the Director of Gynecology at Mount Sinai’s Women’s Health Program. While there, she participated in several research studies focused on osteoporosis and breast cancer. In 2002, she returned to private practice, opening her current office in New York City’s Upper East Side.

Certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Dr. Krause is a fellow at the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology and completes the board re-certification each year, assuring that she remains current with the latest research. In addition, she is a longstanding member of several professional organizations within the field of gynecology including the North American Menopause Society (NAMS) and the American Society of Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology.

Dr. Krause became a NAMS Certified Menopause Practitioner in 2011, having demonstrated special competence in the field of menopause. She is member of the Obstetrics and Gynecology Department at the Ichan School of Medicine where she teaches medical students. Dr. Krause also served on the Board of Directors of the Association of Attending Staff at the Mount Sinai Hospital for 5 years and was a member of the Icahn School of Medicine Admissions Committee. 

For over 10 consecutive years Dr. Krause has been named among the “Best Doctors of the Year” by Castle and Connelly. She has been a contributor to a column in All You magazine, and has been published in Health magazine.

Dr. Krause is a proud supporter of Physicians for Reproductive Health. She is married to Dr. Peter Charap, an internist with an office in Manhattan. They have three children.
