Dr.Fothersgil knew that I had a hard time getting through to someone in the clinic, and that I had come in for my apt on my lunch break. I barely had time to sit down after checking in, and he came and got me from the waiting room himself to save time. He was very personable, with excellent bedside manner.

he was so calming and explained things so well. he was going to send me out for a sonogram, when I asked if we could schedule it for the same day since I have tti take off the entire day he said yes, they'd work it out. Then he located a machine in his office so I didn't have to go to another location. he explained at length about when I'd receive test results, etc.

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!
