About Me

As an Ob/Gyn physician, I’m very fortunate to have the ability to heal the sick and improve the lives of my patients. I care about delivering quality care and listening to my patients’ concerns. Over the years, I’ve met people from varying backgrounds and understand that each person deserves respect and guidance as they try to reach their health care goals.

Here are the ways I help patients the most: (1) helping restore health for patients who are sick or in pain, (2) helping patients have a healthy and safe experience in pregnancy, and watching families grow, (3) helping patients to gain control in times of transition, such as menopause, undesired fertility and desired pregnancy, (4) helping patients have a safe, healthy sexual relationship with their partner, and (5) helping patients maintain their health, stay safe, and avoid infections and cancer.

Throughout my career, I’ve worked with thousands of learners. My involvement in the Learning Communities (program director) and Applied Health Systems Science (lead coach) curricula has allowed me to guide medical students as they become physicians and in showing ways to improve health care. In addition, I teach a course on human sexuality and am a mentor for medical students interested in applying for Ob/Gyn residency.

Many of my research interests center on pregnancy. I received a grant from the CDC to assess changes in the immune system during pregnancy. Currently, I’m working on a research project that examines how the bacteria on a person’s skin may affect their pregnancy and mood. In addition, I’ve published multiple papers, and I received a Coca-Cola “Making a Difference” grant to help understand why pregnant women smoke. Outside of that research, I have published multiple articles on female sexual dysfunction and helped run an FDA trial for a new device. My interest in mentoring students has been relevant in my research as well. I have published papers regarding medical student and resident-physician professionalism, in addition to trying to improve the OB/GYN residency application process.

When I’m not at work, I spend time with my wife and four children, coach Little League football, baseball and basketball, and take it easy after having just completed a master’s degree in business administration. I also enjoy cooking, travel and movies.

    I was looking for a new gynecologist/sexual dysfunction expert and had requested a female doctor, but the only appointments available were with Dr. Worly. I continued with the scheduling however was beyond nervous for my appointment since I have a fear of males, since I am a young female who has been sexually assaulted. To my surprise, the appointment went very well and he made feel very comfortable, listened to me, treated me like a human being, demonstrated great empathy and understanding, didn't judge me at all, and I felt a sense of trust. I highly recommend Dr. Worly!
