Female center for women's health doctor headshot

Xochitl Garcia, MD, FACOG, will soon provide obstetrics & gynecological services to central Illinois patients as part of Springfield Clinic Peoria.

Dr. Garcia has served the Peoria community for the past 10 years and is one of only three providers in the area that offers minimally invasive, robotic procedures. She places special emphasis on empowering women to take charge of their health, and her patients describe her as both caring and collaborative. She says one of the best parts of her job is working hand in hand with patients as a team to ensure the best outcome.

"I feel like this profession is very unique. I get to oversee the full spectrum of care for a woman. It's also a hybrid of surgery and primary care. That's why I went into OB-GYN. I love procedures, and I love to take care of pregnant patients and deliver their babies."
In her free time, Dr. Garcia enjoys running, traveling and reading. She's fluent in Spanish and also volunteers for medical mission work. She lives with her husband, two daughters and two dogs.

Springfield Clinic Peoria is comprised of 12 surgeons and four advanced practitioners who provide procedures in general surgery, breast surgery, plastic surgery, surgical oncology, surgical weight loss, thoracic surgery and colon and rectal specialties. They also offer minimally invasive surgery and procedures for hernia treatment, LINX reflux management and Mediport® insertion.
