Dr. Phillips specializes in gynecology. For 35 years Dr. Phillips has been in private practice on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.

Included are the treatment of atrophic vaginitis, hormone management, endometrial biopsies, osteoporosis and osteopenia, female sexual dysfunction and pessaries for pelvic prolapse. For a decade she has tested her patients with a positive family history for the genes that confer an increased risk for breast, ovary and colon cancer. Her commitment to early breast cancer detection led her to be one of the first gynecologists in New York City to offer infrared breast scanning to her patients.

She was a guest on the national television show The Doctors, where she addressed the topic of infrared screening using the NoTouch BreastScan for the early detection of breast cancer. For her Fifty @ Fifty series, Tracey Jackson filmed Dr. Phillips talking about transdermal estrogen, which is posted on YouTube.
