Jennifer Nickell, MD:

I've been an OB/GYN for 21 years. I chose obstetrics and gynecology so I could be a part of a woman's whole scope of healthcare throughout her years. It's been very enjoyable for me to be with females through their childbearing years, all the way up until the menopausal and end-of-life years.

I feel like new patients looking for an OB/GYN should find someone they're comfortable with, who they feel is well trained in their area and has the capability of taking care of their needs and concerns. I feel it's important for them to know that the team that's around them is also going to help take care of them as well.

Baptist Health has a lot to offer female patients. We have a great group of OB/GYNs, as well as nurse practitioners, midwives and staff, who come together to take care of patients. My experience at Baptist Health Paducah has been very good. I feel like because there's a larger group of us working together that we're able to provide broader healthcare options for people.

I've always been very honored to take care of patients. They trust us a lot with not only their lives, but the lives of their babies. And that brings a huge amount of trust in a relationship with that patient. I've been lucky enough over the years to have very special relationships with my patients that have lasted the course of 20-plus years.
