Baystate adds new Ob/Gyn for Springfield and South Hadley

SPRINGFIELD The providers and staff of Baystate Ob/Gyn Group announced that Debra Junnila, MD, will join their practice in August.

Junnila earned her undergraduate degree with high honors from Swarthmore College and her medical degree from the University of Washington. She completed her residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Baystate Medical Center, where she earned awards for her laparoscopic surgical skills as well as mentoring and inspiring resident physicians through poise, humor and compassion.

The providers and staff of Baystate OB/Gyn Group, Inc. are looking forward to welcoming Junnila to their practice. Her approach to medicine and exemplary skills, particularly in laparoscopic surgery, will complement the comprehensive services already offered by the practice.

Junnila shares that "In this Internet age, I feel my role as a clinician is not just to educate women but to help them sift through the abundance of available information in order for women to make informed decisions about their health. I believe active participation is an important part of optimizing the relationship between a patient and her physician. I also appreciate these relationships and feel I benefit from them as I strive to become a better physician."

Junnila is available for appointments in the Springfield and South Hadley offices of Baystate Ob/Gyn Group.
