Over the past 21 years, it’s been a privilege and an honor to provide health care to women of all ages in the Birmingham area. My practice has always been focused on taking care of my patients general health and wellness needs, not just her obstetric or gynecological concerns.”Dr. John C. Foster, M.D.
I truly love my job and feel fortunate that I get to be a part of bringing new lives into the world all the time. I love that I can follow my patients through the different stages of their lives, as they change and as their needs change. I can’t think of a more rewarding place in this world than the place I have found myself.”Dr. Jodie Blankenship Benton, M.D.
I enjoy the variety of providing obstetrical care, performing gynecological surgical procedures and seeing patients in the office. I particularly enjoy the relationships that I have with my patients. Through the years, it has been fun to talk to patients, learn about their lives and follow up with their stories when they return to the office each visit. I consider it a privilege to minister to my patients’ needs through my medical practice.”Dr. William M Johnson, III M.D.
Family and obstetrics are major themes in my life. My husband and I are both obstetricians and we have three young children, two daughters and a son. A good physician takes time to really listen to her patients and I believe that it is extremely important to develop a relationship with each patient that fosters communication and trust.”Dr. Rupa D. Goolsby, M.D.

I am delighted to follow the path God has designed for me in caring for women through medicine.”Dr. Crista J. Thomas, M.D.
