Lakeview Regional Medical Center is proud to welcome Dr. Jill Gibson. A graduate of the OB/GYN residency at LSUHCS in Shreveport, LA, Dr. Gibson will practice general obstetrics and gynecology.
“We are pleased to have Dr. Gibson join our medical staff at Lakeview Regional,” states Stephen Robinson, Lakeview Regional Medical Center Chief Operating Officer. “She brings with her an enthusiasm that exudes compassion and respect.” Dr. Gibson completed her residency and internship at LSU Health Sciences Center in Shreveport and received her Doctor of Medicine from the American University of the Caribbean in St. Maarten, N.A. She received a Bachelor of Science in Clinical Laboratory Sciences from LSU Health Sciences Center in New Orleans.
Dr. Gibson’s practice will cover the full spectrum of women’s health services including pre-conception counseling, routine prenatal care, birth control, and hormone replacement therapy. “As a mom, I look forward to helping women with not only their own healthcare needs, but also to being a resource for mothers who need help educating their daughters on how to understand and embrace their own female health,” says Dr. Gibson, “One of my first initiatives will be a four-part mother/daughter community education series that covers some of the tough topics that affect young girls today including the lower average age when girls become sexually active, to the risks associated with sexuality including pregnancy and education about HPV, the number one cause of cervical cancer.”
Lakeview Regional Medical Center’s Women’s Services department is undergoing an extensive renovation project to upgrade to the post-partum patient rooms into private luxury suites. Private tours are available. Lakeview Regional also offers amenities that reflect their understanding that expectant mothers are not the typical hospital patient including concierge service, room service and iPad rental. Lakeview offers OB/GYN physicians the latest technology on the Northshore to offer Airstrip OB, the latest in fetal monitoring and surveillance. Dr. Gibson is now accepting appointments and is accepting all insurance plans. Please call 985-898-5990 to schedule a appointment.
*On Wednesday March 13th from 6 – 7PM, Dr. Gibson will present “Your Period,” an educational and engaging mother/daughter event that will answer all the questions a young girl has about getting her period and how to be prepared for THE day (or the BIG day). The program geared for girls aged 10 – 14 will be held at Lakeview Regional Medical Center. Call (985) 867-3900 to reserve your spot.
