  1. WebJason_Gooch-0311-Edit-What inspired you to begin working in obstetrics and gynecology?

As a medical student, I had the opportunity to follow an ob/gyn physician in practice. I loved the diversity of the care he was able to provide and the relationships he developed over the years with his patients. He often knew the patients and their family without having to look at their medical record.

  1. Why are you passionate about working in this area of health care?

I love being able to care for women throughout all stages of their life. Helping families through pregnancy and childbirth has always been a very exciting and emotionally rewarding experience for me. At the same time, I’m passionate about minimally invasive surgery and being able to provide state of the art surgical care.

  1. How is the relationship with your patients important to you?

My relationship with my patients is the reason I chose to be an obstetrician/gynecologist rather than a surgical subspecialist. I enjoy getting to know my patients beyond their “diagnoses” and medical problems.

  1. What are a few of your favorite things to do around the Austin area?

I’ve really enjoyed the culinary revolution here in Austin so trying new, inventive restaurants is high on the list. I also developed a running “habit” about 7 years ago and have been running and training for marathons ever since.

  1. Tell us what patients can expect during their first visit with you.

Patients can expect a courteous staff, a thorough review of their history and the opportunity to have all their questions addressed without feeling rushed.

  1. What is your favorite part about being a physician?

I think the ability to have a positive impact on people’s health and their family has been the favorite part of my career as a physician.

  1. Share with us some of your favorite hobbies!

Aside from running, I enjoy being in the kitchen cooking.
