Self-described “cheerleaders” for their patients, the physicians offer a tailored experience and are all passionate about the work they do.
Although helping women through a pregnancy is a focus of the practice, they also work alongside pediatricians and through an outreach program with Fayette County Public Schools, facilitated by Dr. Ramon Thomas, to address issues for women of any age and Dr. Arghavani focuses on young adult women and their unique needs. Between her care and the care of Dr. Robert Thompson, who focuses solely on gynecological services, a facet of care beyond pregnancy is added to the practice. (Photos provided by Lexington Clinic)
