Augusta GYN PC Obstetrics & Gynecology
Dr. Cook is my OBGYN and delivered my first baby 1.5 years ago as well as my sister 21 years ago :) He is amazing and his staff are top notch. I have never waited more than 20 minutes and the front desk staff are friendly and efficient. If I call and leave a message to request a prescription, my pharmacy is calling within hours telling me it's ready! Dr. Cook is the best OBGYN a girl could ever ask for and his immediate staff (Brenda, Tia, Mandy etc) are the best ladies I've ever dealt with. Dr. Cook always takes time to listen to all of my concerns and has always treated me with respect. Nicest guy ever!! I travel 1.5 hours to go to Augusta gyn if that tells you anything.

Johnson Princessa MD PC
Dr. Johnson is the best ever!!! Never been more comfortable with any other doctor until I met her. Her bed side manner is remarkable. I felt like I could talk to her about anything and some days I did. She'll be delivering all my children and tending to all my medical needs and concerns until she decides to retire :-)!!!
Tips & Advices
OB/GYNs learn to treat infertility as part of their standard education. OBGYNs who further their training in reproductive endocrinology and infertility are known as fertility specialists.
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a treatment where medication is used to replace hormones a woman's body does not create naturally. Women are prescribed either estrogen alone or a mix of estrogen and progesterone. The former is given to women who've had hysterectomies, while the latter is for postmenopausal women. HRT used to be a common treatment, but doctors have prescribed it less often in recent years, as concerns of negative side effects increased.
Endometriosis is a chronic condition where uterine tissue (endometrium) grows in areas outside the uterus. This can cause extreme pain, especially around menstruation and during sex. Other symptoms include infertility, chronic fatigue, and painful urination or bowel movements during menstruation. In addition, many women with endometriosis also have allergies, frequent yeast infections, or sensitivity to certain chemicals.
Morning sickness is a common pregnancy symptom that includes nausea and occasional vomiting. Despite its name, morning sickness can occur at any time of day. The exact reason for this condition isn't clear, although most believe it results from hormone changes affecting muscle contraction and relaxation in the stomach and intestines. Another theory suggests morning sickness is caused by an abundance of intestinal bacteria in pregnant woman.
OBGYNs can prescribe or perform the following types of birth control:
  • Contraceptive pills
  • Birth control shots
  • Implants
  • Diaphragms
  • Vaginal rings
  • Cervical caps
  • Intrauterine devices
  • Tubal ligation
  • Hysterectomies
Women do not need to see an OBGYN to obtain over-the-counter forms of birth control such as male condoms, female condoms, or sponges.
