As one of three sisters I love how my job allows me to be there for my patients from the birth of their first child throughout the rest of their life.
Jamestown has a wonderful group of family physicians who provide excellent obstetric care. The goal is to be an asset to their practice and provide prenatal care to those higher-risk patients who would otherwise have to drive an hour away for care. Additionally, it will be a benefit to the community to have a gynecologist providing those desired procedures right in their hometown.
