Amy French first approached women’s health care as a counselor for rape and domestic violence survivors, as well as working with women with eating disorders. After deciding to pursue medicine, the choice of obstetrics and gynecology was obvious. As an Ob/Gyn, she enjoys continuity of care with women from adolescence to childbirth to menopause and beyond. Dr. French is also interested in minimally invasive surgical techniques that offer women more choices in their reproductive health.
Dr. French received her BA from Emory University in Atlanta, with a double major in psychology and religion. She completed post-baccalaureate science courses at the University of California at Berkeley. After medical school at the University of Louisville, in Kentucky, she completed residency at the University of Florida in Jacksonville. During residency she was awarded teaching awards all four years, Alfred P. Gold Humanism in Medicine Award during her final year, and first place at the residency research symposium for her original research on methods of labor induction.
She loves being a single mom to her twin boys and especially loves traveling with them.
