Dr. Christopher HarveyAbout

Christopher D. Harvey, MD, FACOG

My love of science led to an undergraduate major in Chemistry, and a subsequent passion for Medicine.   Now, as a physician, I have the chance to study the most sophisticated subject of all, the human body.  Specifically, as an Ob/Gyn, I am afforded the honor to participate in one of the most exciting human experiences, that of childbirth.  This brings me great personal and professional satisfaction.

Throughout my career, I have been active in local and national professional organizations.  The exchange of ideas, continued education, and professional camaraderie make me a better doctor, and allow me to better serve my patients.

I have benefited greatly from the leadership, kindness, and generosity of others.  This is why I find it important to give back to the community at large–the same community that has given me so much.  My work through local volunteerism and international medical relief has been as fulfilling as any of my other personal and professional accomplishments.
