Dr. Fothergill always greets my husband and I with a hand shake and a smile with every OB appointment we have had since we found out we were pregnant! He never makes us feel rushed or hurried us a long. He always sits down and makes sure all of our questions and concerns are heard and addressed before we leave the appointment. He is by far the best provider we could ever ask for! I would and do recommend him to everyone I know! He is respectful, courteous, personable and professional!

I've had several visits with Dr. Fothergill in the past and each visit is always great, I have confidence in him that he'll give me best care available as a patient. My visit time with Dr. Fothergill is not rushed, he takes time to listen to my concerns regarding my health before moving on to the next patient. I feel as though I can go to him whenever there's a issue without feeling overwhelmed with anxiety and when I reach out to him he's always replies quickly and responsibly and for that I am appreciative of Dr. Fothergill. I would recommend his care to my family members.
