In the past my experience has been excellent. During this particular visit, I felt like I left with more questions than answers in regards to what to expect/specifics after my D&C. Was hoping to at least get some information about the specific procedure I had since the attending provider who performed the procedure during my hospitalization failed to communicate with me at all. I understand that miscarriage is a common experience for the provider; however, it is a devastating experience for the patient and her significant other/spouse. The profession has to do better in regards to caring for patients who have experienced pregnancy loss.

Dr Fothergill went above and beyond to care for and council me after I experienced a preterm delivery and infant loss. He was very patient and spent a lot of time answering questions.

I was very nervous finding a new provider after a miscarriage in April 2018 and then moving in July 2018, but Dr. Fothergill and the staff at the clinic made me feel very at ease. They took my nerves into consideration and made sure that I was comfortable at all times.

Dr. Fothergill is gufted ohysician, however, more importantly he is a stand-up individual. He truly cares about me as a patient, and while waiting to be seen, I hear snippets of him talking to patients as he enters and exits rooms and he treats all patients with dignity and respect. Recommendbation: Clone him so that he can 1) practice medicine and 2) teach and share his medical knowledge and patient interaction skills with med students, residents, and other healthcare providers.

Dr. Forthergill is someone that I trust with all of my healthcare decisions. He has always been supportive and took time to care about things going on in my life and made the effort to make sure anything that was confusing made sense. I have always felt comfortable relying on him for my healthcare decisions, even outside of the ob/gyn realm, and I trust him to always give me the best information. I am incredibly grateful to him for his service at Baylor Scott & White.
