Few doctors are as dedicated to the Me & My OBG campaign and to District XI ACOG (Texas) than Dr. G. Sealy Massingill, our ‘Doc of the Month.’ Dr. Massingill’s participation has not only helped his fellow doctors, but also helped educate Texas women so that they may make more informed decisions about their health care.
A graduate of the University of Texas Medical School – Houston, Dr. Massingill chose obstetrics and gynecology as his specialty because he felt comfortable with the mix of procedures and continuity of care. He is the current chair of the John Peter Smith Health Network Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, the medical director at Midwifery Texas Health Harris Methodist Fort Worth, and an associate professor at the University of North Texas Health Science Center.
As a veteran physician, Dr. Massingill believes the most pressing issue for Texas women is access to care after delivery for those mothers who qualify for medical care during pregnancy, then don’t after. He identifies access to the full range of reproductive health services as a close second.
When we asked Dr. Massingill to tell us about his favorite ‘day in the life of an OB/GYN’ story, he replied, ‘I’ve recently begun caring for a pregnant patient I delivered……pretty darn cool!’ Pretty darn cool indeed.
