MHP Welcomes OBGYN

OB/GYN Specialist Jeffrey Fowler, DO, to join MHP Specialty Services

Mahaska Health Partnership is pleased to welcome Obstetrics and Gynecology Specialist Jeffrey Fowler, DO, to its medical staff.

“Dr. Fowler brings a wealth of knowledge in his field and over 16 years of experience,” MHP Birthing Center Director Chyann Vroegh shared. “Our community is fortunate to have him.”

Dr. Fowler comes to MHP from a private practice in Pueblo, Colorado, where he offered all aspects of OB/GYN care including annual female exams and laparoscopic surgical procedures to reproductive medicine and pregnancy care.

“I like a good balance of OB and GYN patients,” Dr. Fowler said. “Seeing the look on the face of a new mom and dad is priceless, but helping a patient who has been suffering is just as rewarding.”

Obstetrics and Gynecology Specialists are physicians who specialize in all things female; from abnormal vaginal bleeding and urinary incontinence to contraception management and caring for a pregnancy. “I chose to specialize as an OB/GYN because it’s one of the only areas of medicine where patients come to you for a reason other than being sick,” Dr. Fowler explained. “When a patient is pregnant, she and I share the same goal of delivering a healthy baby. It’s a partnership.

“I’m really looking forward to joining MHP. The Birthing Center nurses at MHP seem top rate as illustrated by the longevity of many of their careers and high patient satisfaction numbers. I’m looking forward to working with the current physicians providing obstetrics care and the Birthing Center staff,” Dr. Fowler said.

Dr. Fowler received his Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree from Oklahoma State University and completed a four year residency in the Detroit, MI area. “During my residency, I trained in inner-city hospitals which gave me exposure to many different facets of obstetrics and gynecological care,” Dr. Fowler explained. “I like to work closely with specialists across the medical field to ensure the best care for my patients.”

Dr. Fowler begins his practice at MHP Specialty Services July 11 and is looking forward to serving the community. “I want patients to feel comfortable coming to me. I’m experienced and board certified which is important, but once they meet me, I hope they realize I have strong empathy for my patients and truly care about them and improving their quality of life.”

Appointments with Obstetrics and Gynecology Specialist Jeffrey Fowler, DO, are now being accepted. For an appointment, call 641-672-3360.
