Amy Hempel

Dr. Hempel, one of the most recent providers to join the VPFW team, was inspired to go into medicine and found a passion for obstetrics and gynecology after hearing about her own parents’ struggles with infertility. She now has a particular interest in helping her patients through the challenges of starting a family and loves having the honor of being a part of the celebration when they are able to bring a child into the world.

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! She’s a total foodie and loves that RVA has so much to offer!

“Dr. Hempel and the entire staff are excellent. I’ve never been to a doctor’s office where everyone was sooooo extraordinary.” – Patient Survey, 2017
