Atlanta Parent magazine named eight Longstreet Clinic providers among the “Mom-Approved Doctors” in its September issue. Readers were given an opportunity to nominate their favorite OB/GYN, midwife or fertility specialist for providing excellent medical care in their field.

Four Longstreet Clinic OB/GYNs were recognized: Dr. R. Brett Barger, Dr. Jeffry J. Bizon, Dr. W. Thomas Jenkins and Dr. Crystal A. Terrill. 

Two Longstreet Clinic gynecologists were recognized: Dr. Karin D. Dillard and Dr. Cricket Garlich. Two certified nurse midwives were also honored: Kim Blasingame and Liz S. Coleman.

The magazine asked readers, “Who is your favorite OB/GYN, midwife or fertility specialist?” as well as what made him or her “so exceptional” that they’d recommend the provider to other women.

The Longstreet Clinic’s 12 board-certified OB/GYNs and 11 certified nurse midwives care for women at locations in Gainesville, Braselton, Baldwin and Dahlonega.

Atlanta Parent Magazine recognizes Mom-Approved Doctors in three categories annually: pediatricians, dentists and OB/GYNs. Top dentists are recognized in February, top pediatricians in June and top OB/GYNs in the September issue. Readers and patients can submit nominees two to three months before they are announced at
