Beaufort Memorial Obstetrics & Gynecology Specialists have added two members to their medical staff, according to a news release.
Ob-gyn physician Patricia Thompson has joined the practice. A board-certified physician for 20 years, Dr. Thompson most recently owned and practiced with Gynecology Associates of Beaufort.
She is one of four Beaufort Memorial ob-gyn surgeons trained to perform robot-assisted hysterectomies and other gynecological procedures.
Suzanne Wolf, a nurse practitioner, has also joined the group. A Parris Island nurse practitioner for 18 years, Wolf teamed up with Thompson in January of 2015 after working at Good Neighbor Free Medical Clinic of Beaufort.
Prior to graduating from the Family Nurse Practitioner Program at the Medical University of South Carolina in 1996, Wolf was a U.S. Air Force Nurse Corps officer for 20 years.
Dr. John Fontana, who founded the former Beaufort ob-gyn practice in the ‘70s and has practiced at Beaufort Memorial for more than 40 years, will be retiring as a gynecologist. He will continue to assist with surgery cases at the hospital on a part-time basis.
Both Thompson and Wolf specialize in gynecology and no longer deliver babies. They will continue to see patients at their current office at 1835 N. Paris Ave. in Port Royal. Thompson also offers office hours at Bluffton Medical Services, 11 Arley Way.
