Camille Weas, MA

Following my life-long aspiration to help individuals reach their full potential, I left my fifteen-year career in human resources to start a business that helps individuals discover and define their life purpose. This venture sparked my desire to follow my passion to help people reach their full potential. Knowing that many obstacles and challenges stand in the way of living the life one imagined, I returned to graduate school to learn and hone my skills to become a mental health therapist. At that point, I had experienced enough of life to know how helpful therapy can be to find solutions to painful problems and develop the skills to gain confidence and resiliency in overcoming obstacles that block the path to a better life.

Dear Dr. Teigen and the other OBGYN West staff,

We wanted to take a moment to say how thankful we are for everything you have done for us. On January 20th you helped welcomed our first baby girl into the world. Sweet, little Annabelle was supposed to be a Valentine’s baby and ended up arriving a month early. We actually got to take her home on my birthday! She is happy, healthy and definitely keeping us busy.

You have all been so wonderful and helpful during my numerous pregnancy visits and we truly appreciate how kind and welcoming everyone is.

Please help yourselves to a treat on us and thank you thank you THANK YOU!!

Dr. English is a great fertility doctor! He has a lot of knowledge & cheerfulness mixed with the perfect amount of awkward nerdiness that puts me at ease during my appts. I am a scientist to awkward nerdiness is what I do best. I typically do not prefer male OBGYNs, but the male staff here is awesome!

I love Dr. Stecher. I followed her to this practice. She was kind, efficient and knowledgeable. I would recommend her to anyone in need of an OBGYN. She did an incredible job on my surgery!

Dr. Weinrich is a fabulous Doctor. I had a number of procedures done by him that required hospital stays. He spent a great deal of time with me making sure that I understood everything clearly. He is personable, and competent. I would recommend him to any of my friends without hesitation. Only good things to say about him.

I love OBGYN West. Dr. Toft is caring and an excellent listener. I have been coming here for years. All the nurses, techs, PAs- everyone is always so nice and upbeat. Thank god when I switched insurance OBGYN West was still in my network!

I feel like I really matter when I visit Dr. Teigen. He understands what my needs are and how to best go about treatments. I don’t ever feel pressured. I feel optimistic about my future fertility issues, general health and well-being because of him. I am very thankful for the knowledge and professionalism that he shows.

I have been incredibly please with Dr. Larson. Her knowledge of me and my health is beyond impressive. I really feel that she had my best interest in mind and truly listens to me. The second I hear that someone is looking for an OB, I can’t wait to tell her how amazing Dr. Larson is.

My sister and I both see Dr. Johnson & have for many years. We both work in the medical prof. and have very high expectations. She exceeds our expectations. Dr. Johnson shows genuine interest in me as a patient & is also willing to engage in small talk about what’s going on in your life.

Dr. Heegaard is one of the most thorough and caring doctors around. He spends as much time as needed with you and makes you feel at ease. I just can’t say enough good things about him. You cannot go wrong seeing him.

Wonderful OB; he delivered my second baby. He is wonderful doctor who listens and is extremely knowledgeable. He makes an effort to deliver his own patients which I appreciate. He is confident and reassuring. I would highly recommend him.

Dr. English is very focused on his patients. He is very knowledgeable, kind & attentive. Exactly what a worried pregnant woman needs! I always feel important when I come to an appointment with him. I transferred from a different clinic to keep Doctor English as my provider.
