He stayed in my room and talked with me until all of my concerns were addressed and answered thoroughly. He treated me like a person and not just another number like other doctors in my past have treated me. I was extremely pleased with my visit, and highly recommended this provider to others.

Dr. Fothergill is great! My parents are both OB-GYNs for almost 40 years, so I guess that makes me "one of those" patients who could come in with an attitude. I definitely think Dr. Fothergill treats me in the same high quality, professional, and expert manner as he does every patient, regardless of one's familiarity with the profession. Two fellow military spouses had OB and GYN care from Dr. Fothergill a few years ago and recommended him greatly, and after a number of visits myself, I would recommend him to anyone seeking such care as well.

I feel that he cares about my well being and shows empathy when I have concerns. And he always takes the time to answer all of my questions. His staff is always caring, friendly and professional.
