Dr. Stewart is a board-certified obstetrician-gynecologist caring for women of all ages at Women’s Group of North Florida in Gainesville. He is experienced in bio-identical hormone replacement therapy and robotic gynecologic surgery.
When asked what his favorite thing about being a doctor, Dr. Stewart answered, “The long-term relationships that I develop with my patients. OB GYN is a happy field – patients are happy to come see a doctor they have seen over many years and possibly through one or more pregnancies.”
He is guided by the medical philosophy, “I’m not here to make decisions for my patients; I believe I’m here to help patients make the best decisions for themselves.”
In the Dominican Republic, Dr. Stewart graduated with his medical degree from the Santiago University of Technology School of Medicine in 1985. He then relocated to the United States, performing his internship at St. Agnes HealthCare in 1989.
