Dr. Jeffrey Wentworth, MD, joined The Group For Women in 2000. After graduating from Elon College in North Carolina, Dr. Wentworth entered East Carolina University School of Medicine where he initially considered a career as a surgeon. A clinical rotation in OB/GYN caring for women and delivering babies changed his plans, he says. “After six weeks, I realized that this was what I wanted to do. In the OB/GYN field, there are the life-long relationships you develop with patients as you help them through crucial times and also during some of the best times of their lives as they have children.” �
He completed his residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Maricopa Medical Center/St. Joseph’s Hospital in Phoenix, Arizona, where he was Chief Resident, before joining The Group for Women.�
Along with providing direct patient care, Dr. Wentworth is committed to furthering women’s health through his ongoing involvement in cutting-edge research initiatives. “I probably participate in eight to ten clinical trials a year,” he says, including studies in contraceptive methods. “There are all sorts of new birth control options and contraceptive methods available to optimize patient choice and those are some of the most interesting studies to do.” He also has an interest in abnormal uterine bleeding and specializes in minimally invasive procedures like endometrial ablation and robotic hysterectomy.�
As the parents of two active teenagers, a son and a daughter, he and his wife attend a lot of soccer, field hockey and lacrosse matches, and in his spare time Dr. Wentworth enjoys participating in athletics as well.
