Orangeburg native Whitney Wolfe Thoma recently joined the obstetrics and gynecology practice of Williamson & Gillespie, PA.
“We are very excited to have Dr. Thoma as a part of our team,” said Richard Williamson, MD. “Dr. Thoma grew up in Orangeburg and worked in our office for a few summers while she was in school. I like to think that our office helped influence her decision to become a physician and specialize in obstetrics and gynecology.”
In addition to practicing at Williamson & Gillespie, PA, Thoma holds office hours once a week at the primary care practice of William Glenn, MD in Bamberg.
Thoma received a bachelor’s degree in biology from Wofford College in Spartanburg and a medical degree form the University of South Carolina in Columbia. She completed an internship and residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Carillion Health System, the University of Virginia in Roanoke, where she served on the Residency Academic Committee of the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists and was junior fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
She is certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology and is a member of the American Medical Association, the South Carolina Medical Association and the Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists. She has been a member of the RMC medical staff since June 2010.
