About Us

After years of practicing as an OB-GYN in the Tri-cities area, Dr. Fox moved to Idaho to be closer to his family. In 2008, he founded Locust Grove Women’s Health, a gynecological practice.

Gloria Beery provides comprehensive general health care for women aged 12-65. After over 35 years of working for others, she decided to break out on her own. Dr. Fox had space to share at Locust Grove, so the two joined forces.

In 2014, Laura Bainbridge joined the team. With her enthusiasm and passion for helping people, as well as her experience with mental health services, she has been a great addition to the practice!

Our staff prides themselves in providing personalized, competent, and compassionate care. See a bit about each one of us below!
