Barbara Anne Hessel MD

Ob Gyn expertise with the personal attention you deserve

A Personal Message from Dr. Hessel

As a young woman, I wanted a doctor who could answer my questions, and who I could openly communicate with. Throughout my years of practice, I’ve dedicated myself to helping women be their best in all phases of life by offering the most up-to-date, effective care available in obstetrics and gynecology. My goal is to be the best physician I can be.

That’s why it’s so important for me to connect with you—my patients.

I want to know and understand you as the unique individual you are. This helps me do what’s right for you, and helps you feel comfortable with me.

It’s my hope that through communication, personal attention and time, you’ll know that you can always count on me – for the medical care you need to be your healthiest and for the personal dedication you deserve from your physician. Wherever you are in life.
