Acadiana Women’s Health Group recently welcomed Dr. A’Dair Herrington, OB-GYN, to its team of physicians.
Acadiana is home for Dr. Herrington, an Opelousas native, whose husband is a Lafayette gastroenterologist and her brother a local orthopedic surgeon. Dr. Herrington provides obstetric and gynecological services to women of all ages, but has a particular interest in performing minimally invasive gynecologic surgery as well as treating adolescents.
“The teenage years are such a delicate time of life, a time when young women are just beginning gynecological care,” Dr. Herrington said. “I am dedicated to meeting their healthcare needs and their unique emotional needs during this special time. Hopefully, we can establish a strong bond and trust that will last for years to come.”
Dr. Herrington graduated from Episcopal School of Acadiana in Cade in May 2000 before entering pre-med studies at LSU in Baton Rouge. Her undergraduate studies included a semester at the University of Exeter in Exeter, England as part of the LSU Academic Program Abroad.
She graduated summa cum laude in 2004 from LSU in Baton Rouge with a bachelor’s degree in biological sciences and was awarded the Chancellor’s Medal for a cumulative 4.0 GPA. Dr. Herrington earned a medical doctorate in 2008 from LSU Health Sciences Center in Shreveport.
During medical school, in addition to serving as a class president, Dr. Herrington earned several accolades including the prestigious Dr. and Mrs. Adrian F. Reed Memorial Award and the Aaron Selber Jr. Leadership Award.
Dr. Herrington completed her OB-GYN training at Ochsner Clinic Foundation in New Orleans, where she then worked in private practice for two years prior to moving back home to Lafayette.
“Dr. Herrington is a great addition to our team of specialists, and we are proud to welcome her into our group,” said Dr. Truman Hawes, OB-GYN with Acadiana Women’s Health Group.
Acadiana Women’s Health Group, located on the Women’s & Children’s Hospital campus, is comprised of eight OB-GYNs and two nurse practitioners with more than 180 years of combined experience. In addition to traditional obstetric and gynecological services, the group provides minimally invasive laparoscopic hysterectomy, ultrasound, bone density testing, laser services for hair removal and skin rejuvenation and tattoo removal.
“We are thrilled to add Dr. Herrington to our team,” said Dr. Mika King, OB-GYN, with Acadiana Women’s Health Group. “She will be an invaluable member of our practice, allowing us to continue to provide the highest quality of care to our patients.”
Acadiana Women’s Health Group is located at 4640 Ambassador Caffery Pkwy., Lafayette, LA 70508. Call (337) 984-1050 today for more information or to schedule an appointment.
