Dr. Amy Hempel is the most recent physician to join our practice! Dr. Hempel, who grew up in Greenville, South Carolina, received her undergraduate degree at Wake Forest University before attending medical school at MCV and completing her residency at VCU. We’re thrilled that she’s decided to remain in Richmond to add her experience and expertise to our VPFW family of outstanding physicians. Dr. Hempel decided to become a doctor and found a passion for obstetrics and gynecology after hearing about her own parents struggles with infertility. She’s now especially interested in helping her patients through the challenges of starting a family, and she’s also interested in adolescent gynecologic care as well as robotic surgery and low intervention birth. When she’s not at work caring for her patients, you can find Dr. Hempel hosting friends at her new house–she loves to cook for them, participating in local races like the Richmond Half Marathon, or trying the newest restaurant or brewery!
