Insurance listings are subject to change without prior notice. Please call your physician's office or your health or insurance plan to verify coverage information prior to scheduling your visit or procedure. Not all members participating in contracted networks have "in network" access. In network participation may change from time to time without prior notice. Independent providers (which could include, for example only, anesthesiologists, radiologists, pathologists, emergency medicine physicians, advance practice professionals, and other independent providers of health care services) may deliver part of your care, and such providers may be considered out-of-network on your health and insurance plans even if the Facility may be considered in network. If you desire additional information as to the providers who may be involved in providing your care, you can either ask your treating provider (who may know some of the specialists or groups who could be involved) or you can request a list of Facility-based physician groups by calling the following toll free number: (877) 810-0372.

Dr. Fothergill listened to all of my concerns and completed a full assessment. Was very gentle and even offered me a hand to help me sit up after my exam. Such a small gesture, but one that I have never experienced before. Dr. Fothergill gave me thorough answers to all of my questions. I actually felt cared for rather than brushed off. Very great experience.

I had an AMAZING experience with Dr. Fothergill, from start all the way to postpartum. He listened to every concern, and easily strayed me away from my worried. He's extremely easy to talk to and actually cares. Appointments aren't rushed, and he treats you like family. I wouldn't have wanted anyone else to deliver my daughter, delivery was amazing. He's motivational and talks you through everything that happening, no rush. When my daughter wasn't crying as much as they wanted her to, he was very calm and professional with lots of reassurance. I can't say enough good things about Dr.Fothergill he's truthfully 1 in a million. He's a doctor that takes the extra step, and that's rare. I wish their were more like him.
