The Women’s Clinic at the Grove was founded by Deborah Verucchi and Jenny Fredrickson. We are nurse practitioners who have each practiced in women’s health exclusively for over 15 years each. Together, we realized that we both shared a dream to create a different type of women’s clinic with a goal to provide personalized women’s health care without feeling rushed or crunched for time. After all, we have found that a woman’s annual exam is often the only time that many women take time out of their busy lives care for themselves. This visit should be dedicated to listen to a woman’s needs, both physically and emotionally. Having a women’s clinic close to home, with experienced nurse practitioners will allow our community to grow strong and healthy. Both of us are originally from DeSoto county and are proud to be able to provide care to women in our hometown.
