Board-certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Dr. Greenwood received his Doctor of Medicine from the Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences. After a career serving in the U.S. Air Force, Dr. Greenwood comes to Southern Maryland by way of Langley Air Force Base in Hampton, Va., where he was the medical director of OB/GYN services at Langley Women’s Health Clinic working alongside Lauren Ervin, DNP, CNM, certified nurse-midwife now also practicing at MMG Women’s Health. Dr. Greenwood and his wife enjoy taking their daughter to ice skating lessons and competitions, as well as spending time with horses and watching their six-year-old learn to ride.

“As an obstetrician, I enjoy working closely with expectant patients to learn about their needs and desires for childbirth. I understand the birth process is not about me—it’s a life-changing experience for the parents, and I’m fortunate to be allowed to experience their joy,” said Dr. Greenwood. “Through my work as a gynecologist, it’s very rewarding to work with women to address medical issues they’ve been dealing with for months, even years, and restore them to a normal lifestyle as quickly as possible.”

Dr. Greenwood joins a committed practice caring for women through every stage of life—from pregnancy to menopause and beyond. The team includes Lisa Polko, MD, now focusing exclusively on gynecology; midwives committed to “high touch, low intervention” care; and nurse practitioners to address many health needs.

MedStar Medical Group Women’s Health is located at 41680 Miss Bessie Dr., Suite 102 in Leonardtown, Maryland. To learn more or make an appointment, call 301-997-1788.
