Christine Cimo Hemphill, MD​
Medical Director, Geisinger Holy Spirit OBGYN

Dr. Hemphill attended the University of South Carolina for her undergraduate degree in exercise science. She received her medical degree from the Medical University of South Carolina and completed her OB/GYN residency at Pitt County Memorial Hospital/East Carolina University. In addition, Dr. Hemphill completed a fellowship in Medical and Surgical NaProTECHNOLOGY® at the Pope Paul VI Institute with Dr. Thomas Hilgers, co-creator of the Creighton Model FertilityCare™ System. Dr. Hemphill is Board Certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology. She is currently the Medical Director for Geisinger Holy Spirit OBGYN and Department Chief for Obestetrics and Gynecology at Geisinger Holy Spirit Hospital.

She is a natural family planning only provider, meaning she does not prescribe or refer for contraceptives, nor does she perform or refer for abortions or assisted reproductive technologies, such as inseminations or in vitro fertilization. She has been specially trained to surgically diagnose and treat chronic endometritis and cervicitis, tubal disease, endometriosis, polycystic ovarian syndrome, and pelvic adhesions/scarring with the goals of restoring health, preserving fertility, and decrease the formation of future pelvic adhesions. She is experienced in laparoscopic and robotic surgery, as well as micro-surgery to perform reversals of tubal sterilizations.

In addition to this specialized surgical training, Dr. Hemphill will evaluate and treat thyroid system dysfunction, adrenal fatigue, abnormal mucus cycles, ovarian cysts, postpartum depression as well as implementing obstetrical care, which greatly reduces the preterm delivery rate. In additiona to providing general gynecologic and obstetric care, she has a primary focus on treating subfertile and infertile couples. She also likes to offer adolescent gynecologic care in a manner that allows parents not to worry that their daughters are being pressured to begin contraceptives and that encourages chaste behaviors.
