SARASOTA, Fla. - Sarasota Memorial Health Care System is welcoming two new obstetrics and gynecology physicians to the health system's First Physicians Group (FPG) network and community this month.
Christina Carter, MD, and Ashworth Skibicki, MD, both board-eligible obstetrics and gynecology physicians, are now accepting new patients at two FPG practices, the Sarasota Memorial Health Care Center at Clark Road and the Sarasota Memorial Health Care Center at Lorraine Corners. Both physicians will be treating patients from adolescence to adulthood and providing comprehensive obstetrics and gynecological care.
Prior to joining Sarasota Memorial, Dr. Carter worked for the last year as an OB/GYN with The Woman's Group in Riverview, Fla. She specializes in high-risk obstetrics and gynecology, and has experience in laparoscopy.
