FREE Physician Lecture: Cervical Cancer

According to the American Cancer Society, about 13,000 women will be diagnosed with invasive cervical cancer this year, and more than 4,000 women will die from the disease. Cervical cancer tends to occur in midlife, most frequently between the ages of 35 and 44. And, more than 15 percent of cases are in women over 65. However, the risk of cervical cancer decreases significantly with routine screenings.

Join Lexington Medical Center for our upcoming FREE physician lecture on cervical cancer with Andrea S. Garrick, MD, OB/GYN at Lexington Women’s Care, a Lexington Medical Center physician practice.

Dr. Garrick earned her medical degree at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston and completed a residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Augusta University in Georgia. She has experience providing general OB/GYN services ranging from outpatient care and surgery to routine visits and complicated consultations. She practices at Lexington Women’s Care’s West Columbia location.

We hope to see you there.

What’s New At Lexington Women’s Care

Lexington Women’s Care has provided comprehensive women’s health services – from routine care to specialized treatment and surgery – for more than 40 years. And now the practice has even more to offer its patients.

On September 18, Lexington Women’s Care West Columbia moved into its new office in Lexington Medical Park 3 on the hospital’s main campus. The practice, located in Suite 300, features four labs, four ultrasound rooms, education and Centering™ rooms, and two procedure rooms. Suite 300 occupies the entire third floor of Lexington Medical Park 3. 

Lexington Women’s Care is also growing to meet the needs of patients throughout the Midlands. Sandhills Women’s Care joined the physicians, nurse practitioners and midwives at Lexington Women’s Care as Lexington Women’s Care Sandhills on September 18. Douglas M. Addy, MD, FACOG; Jully A.F. Aguirre, MD; Thomas C. Austin, MD, FACOG; Crystal Y. Johnson, MD, FACOG; and Jennifer B. Linfert, MD, FACOG, will continue to care for their patients at the practice’s Northeast Columbia office and will relocate their West Columbia office to Lexington Women’s Care West Columbia.

“The quality and personalized care Lexington Women’s Care has provided for more than 40 years is now more accessible throughout our community,” said James E. Estes, MD, an OB/GYN at Lexington Women’s Care West Columbia.

Lexington Women’s Care also welcomed two physicians. Andrea Garrick, MD, joined the practice in August. She will care for patients at Lexington Women’s Care West Columbia and Lexington Women’s Care Lexington. The practice welcomed Bert Hutchinson III, MD, to Lexington Women’s Care West Columbia on September 18. He has provided comprehensive obstetric and gynecologic care to women in the Midlands for more than 30 years. He previously practiced at River Bluff GYN.

“Our doctors share the same philosophy on the best ways to deliver quality, consistent care that is tailored to each patient’s needs,” said Dr. Estes.

With Lexington Women’s Care West Columbia moving to its new location in Lexington Medical Park 3 and the additions of Lexington Women’s Care Sandhills, Dr. Garrick and Dr. Hutchinson, the practice can continue to provide customized care for women throughout the Midlands for years to come.
