Kari Lynn Purcott, MD

As an obstetrician and gynecologist, Kari Purcott, MD, provides care for a wide range of women’s health needs, including pregnancy, preconception counseling, labor and childbirth, birth control options, abnormal bleeding, fibroids, sexual health, pelvic infections, preventive medicine, care of female reproductive organs and postpartum care. She has special interests in caring for patients with abnormal PAP smears, adolescent gynecology and performing laparoscopic surgery.

When she is not caring for patients she enjoys traveling, movies on the big screen, dance and theater, music concerts and most of all spending time with friends and family.
