EXCEPTIONAL OBSTETRIC AND GYNECOLOGICAL SERVICES IN MINNESOTA
Despite our patient care being seen as “old school,” the doctors at OBGYN West specialize in the newest advancements in obstetrics and gynecology, including the latest minimally invasive procedures, such as the da Vinci® surgical system. If it’s the first annual exam of your teenager, if you find yourself facing the challenges of middle age, or if there happens to be a new baby on the way, our board-certified OB/GYN physicians will walk you through the entire procedure. At OBGYN West, we consistently strive to provide exceptional care for women throughout Minnesota.
Matthew T. Bigos, MD
Dr. Matthew Bigos has been described by his patients as invested in their care and approachable, with a warm sense of humor. He is empathetic, a good listener, and takes the time to attend to patients’ concerns and explain complex medical conditions in a understandable manner.
Eric English, MD
From a very a young age, Eric English knew “there was more to medicine than just learning the textbook.” The son of a family physician in Apple Valley, Minnesota, young Eric would often do rounds with his father. It was at his dad’s side that he learned what really mattered in life: Caring for the whole person, not just their physical condition.
Eric G. Heegaard, MD
Eric Heegaard wasn’t always going to be an OB/GYN physician. At one point, he dreamed of being a rocker. Well, a soft rocker anyway. “I loved the singer/songwriters,” he admits. “Like James Taylor and Crosby Stills & Nash” So after college, Eric moved to San Francisco with his two band mates to pursue his passion: singing and playing guitar and bass.
Terri S. Johnson, MD
Born and raised in Two Harbors, MN, Dr. Terri Johnson puts ordinary Minnesota nice to shame. As one of her medical associates says, “Terri has a lot of stamina and is incredibly generous. She can do a huge favor for a patient or colleague and think nothing of it. Sharing her skill and energy just comes naturally.
Christine M. Larson, MD
As a med school grad from Hershey, Pennsylvania (known as “the Sweetest Place on Earth”), it’s no surprise Dr. Tina Larson has such a sweet disposition and upbeat attitude toward her work.
Jennifer L. Smolinski, MD
“I truly care about my patients and I take the time necessary to properly address their medical concerns,” says Dr. Jennifer Smolinski. “As part of my job as a doctor, I also fulfill a role as a nurturer and confidant. I enjoy getting to know my patients.”
Kellie C. Stecher, MD
“I know how important it is to patients that I take the time to listen and learn about them and their medical issues,” says Dr. Kellie Stecher. “I always have my patients’ best interests at heart.”
Gregg A. Teigen, MD
Gregg Teigen (pronounced TY-gen) has been called a lot of things by those who know and love him: a kind and accomplished doctor, a fun-loving father of two girls, and a funny, sensitive guy from St. Paul.
Katie J. Toft, MD
Dr. Toft joined the OB GYN West team in 2009 following completion of her residency program at the University of Michigan. She is originally from the area—growing up in the small town of Nicollet, Minnesota—which helped her develop a great a Midwestern work ethic. She moved back to Eden Prairie to raise her family close to family and friends.
Matthew A. Weinrich, MD
Dr. Weinrich loves his job. It’s evident the minute he walks into a room. His welcoming smile. The easy laugh. The warm, friendly greeting. No matter who you are, Dr. Weinrich is completely present and ready to help you any way he can.
Hereditary Cancer Screening
Hereditary Cancer is caused by mutations in genes passed down by generations. These mutation can significantly increase the chances for future cancer. OBGYN West offers Hereditary Cancer Screening to screen for these mutations and provide patients a risk analysis. If you have a family history of cancer please take a short quiz to see if you are at risk.
