Thrive Obstetrics & Gynecology opens new satellite office in Pooler in addition to their Savannah location

Tuesday, September 3rd, 2013

Thrive OB-GYN opens in PoolerCongratulations to the dynamo-sister team at Thrive Obstetrics & Gynecology on the opening of their SECOND office in our area. Thrive is now seeing patients at their new satellite office in Pooler, in addition to their Savannah practice in the Candler Professional Building.

The new Pooler practice is @ 114 Canal St. Suite 403 and is open Tuesdays & Thursdays.

Dr. Maryanna Barrett & Dr. Maria Paasch just opened their first practice in Savannah this past May. So we’re thrilled to see how well the community has responded to manner in which these two deliver health care with kindness, compassion and consideration.

Dr. Barrett and Dr. Paasch are identical twin sisters born and raised in Clarksville, TN. Growing up in a family of strong and nurturing women, both were drawn to the field of Women’s Health.

They attended medical school at The University of Tennessee in Memphis and completed their residencies at the University of Hawaii in Honolulu. Dr. Barrett completed her training in 2009 and Dr. Paasch in 2010. Drs. Barrett and Paasch are board certified in Obstetrics & Gynecology.

While offering complete Women’s Health Care, they have a particular enthusiasm for obstetrics, including trial of labor after a caesarean section (TOLAC), minimally invasive surgery, and pediatric and adolescent gynecology. They, along with their husbands and children, have newly relocated from Hawaii to Savannah, to be close to family and to re-establish roots in their native South.

Their approach to care marries the science of modern medicine with the art of listening to each patient’s individual concerns. At Thrive Obstetrics & Gynecology, Dr. Barrett & Dr. Paasch believe healthcare is a collaboration between the patient and her provider.

Dr. Barrett & Dr. Paasch offer a healthcare alternative that provides you with options and encourages you to choose the approach that works best for your life. They want to help you to take charge of your own health and feel your best at every age. They want to help you thrive…
