Kara A. Flaherty, MD, FACOG - Essex Junction, VT“For me, it is a privilege to be able to care for women… and to be part of the miracle of
pregnancy and childbirth. I feel that it’s my calling to guide women along this journey and
see that they get to the other side safely. And the same goes for their other women’s health
needs. To be successful in this calling, I listen carefully, partner closely with each woman in
my care and do whatever is necessary to provide the best care possible.”

John J. “Jack” Gallagher, Jr., MD, FACOG

John J. “Jack” Gallagher, Jr., MD, FACOG - Essex Junction, VT "After more than 25 years as a women’s health specialist, the greatest reward is still the same thing that drew me to this field: making a difference in people’s lives. And my experience as a parent and husband I think contributes to my understanding and unwavering commitment to the highest standards of care. To this day, the best compliment I've ever received is when
the labor and delivery nurses tell me that I’m ‘more midwife than MD.’”

Paula M. Miner, MD, FACOG

Jill E. Jertson, MD, FACOG - Essex Junction, VT “Part of what interested me in obstetrics and gynecology is the variety of care. But the fact
is that I loved caring for women, which is why I finished my family practice residency and
went straight into Ob-Gyn residency. I still love it, because I get to empower women by
listening to them, giving them the compassion they deserve and providing the very highest
standard of care.”

Sally A. Stockwell, MD, FACOG

Jill E. Jertson, MD, FACOG - Essex Junction, VT “When I chose to specialize in gynecology, there were very few women in this field.
I felt there was a huge need… and caring for women gave me a great sense of personal
reward. And it still does, more than 25 years later. What I enjoy most is the mutual
relationship of trust and respect and the sense that I am truly contributing to your
health and quality of life.”

Maria G. Carracino, MD

Maria-Carracinol Gallagher, Jr., MD, FACOG - Essex Junction, VT "I was a patient long before I was a physician, so I appreciate and understand the woman who wants to take an assertive role in her own well-being. I am a strong believer in the doctor as health coach and advisor, while maintaining excellent standard of medical care. Although very well-versed in the latest guidelines, research and technologies in the field of gynecology and obstetrics, I do not forget that health care is exquisitely personal and that you are trusting your safe-keeping to me. I look forward to building a partnership based on confidence and good health!"
