North Carolina OB/GYN and Midwifery
I chose to become a physician due to a positive experience with a physician when I was 15 years old. I had an accident which resulted in the need for orthopedic care. The emergency room (ER) physician who cared for me was sensitive to my being frightened and alone (my parents were both working and it took a while for them to get to the hospital). The ER doc was kind and explained things to me as they happened. He even took the time to tell me what he was looking for on X-ray and how my treatment would proceed. Being from a small town, I had never interacted with a physician on more than a very superficial level. His kindness and skill left me in awe. It was at that moment that I decided I would become a physician. I very much believe in a partnering approach to patient care. I will always provide the patient with options to manage a condition. I firmly believe that patients have the best outcomes when they are empowered in their medical care. Safe treatments and alternatives should always be discussed, and questions answered plainly and frankly. I believe that there is never a bad question. I like to connect with my patients on a personal level-I see them as friends more than acquaintances. I am at the point in my career where I often treat young women that I delivered as babies for gynecologic issues. It is highly gratifying knowing that I have developed a level of trust with all OBGYN services that continues through generations of women. I enjoy all aspects of obstetric and gynecologic care. I offer obstetric care and delivery for most patients including twins and patients with conditions such as hypertension and gestational diabetes. I also offer a full range of medical and surgical options for the treatment of heavy menstrual cycles, fibroids, and ovarian cysts.
Outside of work, I am an avid sports fan, particularly of college football. I love to read and listen to music. I can often be found working in my yard with my earbuds in on the weekends.

Bridget Tobin, MD
I have been passionate about reproductive health for as long as I can remember, going at least as far back as when, as soon as I learned myself, I explained to everyone in my first grade class where babies come from. I was certain I would become an Ob/Gyn from the first day of medical school, and I consider it a privilege to contribute to some of the most significant aspects of a woman’s life. No other specialty provides the opportunity to do that as much as obstetrics and gynecology.
The range of care I can provide as an Ob/Gyn makes every day exciting to me. I am particularly passionate about high and low risk obstetrics, contraception counseling, and minimally invasive surgery. It is especially rewarding to me to help you understand your reproductive health and come to decisions together about the best options for you.
Outside of the office, I enjoy puzzles, playing board and video games, and spending time with my husband and children. I also love to sing, travel, cook, and bake.

I am a native of Raleigh, NC. It is an honor and privilege to serve the community that I was born and raised in. I have always had an interest in medicine, but my passion for OB/GYN was piqued when I volunteered as an EMT with Cary Area EMS. The obstetric patients were always my favorite population to care for. My undergraduate and graduate studies in nutrition and health at NC State University further fueled my interest in women’s health through various stages of life. I believe in treating the whole person rather than just their current physical ailment. I care for my patients the way I hope my loved ones are cared for when they seek medical care. I strive to ensure that patients are thoroughly informed of their medical diagnoses and involved in decision making for their treatment.
I provide full scope obstetric and gynecologic care. I perform prenatal care and deliveries for a wide breadth of high risk obstetric patients, including those with hypertensive disorders and gestational diabetes. I have a particular interest in how nutrition impacts a woman’s health. I also provide medical and surgical management of various gynecologic conditions, including irregular or heavy periods, ovarian cysts, and fibroids.
I am thrilled to join the North Carolina OB/GYN and Midwifery family, and I am eager to continue caring for women through their reproductive years and beyond, for years to come.
Outside of work, I enjoy cheering on the NC State Wolfpack, Jazzercise, reading, and spending time with my husband and puppy.
