About Catawba Women's Center:

Founded in 1972, Catawba Women's Center (CWC) is the provider of choice for obstetrics and gynecology for the majority of women in the Catawba Valley region of western North Carolina. We are pleased that you have chosen to partner with CWC for your special healthcare needs.

The specialty of obstetrics and gynecology is constantly changing. Operating as a group practice permits our professionals to stay up-to-date with new advances in our field. During Obstetrical Care, our patients have appointments with all of our professional staff; providing the reassurance of a “familiar face” at the time of delivery. Likewise, our providers come to know patients both from a medical standpoint and as an individual. Most gynecologic care and surgical procedures are provided by the provider of your choice. As a large and diverse group, you do have the availability of other practitioners if your needs require other skills or if your provider is unavailable.

We are also the only practice in the Foothills area that offers 24/7 Midwifery Care to our patients. Our midwives are committed to providing personalized care to each woman they encounter and have the skills and knowledge to facilitate healthy, normal childbirth. We offer full scope midwifery care including well woman care, adolescent gynecology and obstetrics. Our midwives collaborate with our obstetricians, pediatricians, and other specialists during your care when the need arises.

In addition to our professional staff, CWC employs nursing, ultrasound, laboratory, and an office staff second to none. All of our employees are dedicated to providing excellent patient relations and services in a friendly, caring manner.

Our goal is to provide the best medical care available, in the most relaxed and comfortable atmosphere possible. We realize women have special medical concerns and needs, and we intend to meet them in the most acceptable way, both medically and financially.

Annual Well Woman Exam

She took time to listen to me and time for discussion. She is very caring and sincere

Gynecological Problem Visit

Dr Dufour took time to listen, comfort and explain options

Gynecological Problem Visit

I truly admire and respect Amber and Dr. Dufour. They are a great team and truly care about their patients.

Gynecological Problem Visit

Dr. Chase took the time to listen to my symptoms and complaints at the previous visit and took me seriously. She suggested having an ultrasound just so we could say we checked all we could and it turned out there was something wrong! Now, I get the relief of knowing I'm not crazy and all because she took the time to really listen. She is honest, funny, and thoughtful and unfortunately, you don't find that everywhere in the medical field these days. Thank you!


Dr. Chase is a very caring and explained all my options for possible hormone treatments as I go through this new chapter in my life.

[Highly satisfied?] Yes.

Office Visit / Follow-up

Detailed review of findings. Honest about not knowing exactly what I should do but to order follow up test and refer out.

Both the nurse and the physician were fantastic. I barely had to wait, and they ensured all of my questions were answered.

New Patient Visit

I felt that I finally had someone who was listening and willing to help instead of just blowing me off to get to the next patient as soon as possible.

Robert Boyd, MD Hickory , NC

Gynecological Problem Visit

The procedure was quick and painless and I was given a clear and precise explanation of what was expected as an outcome from it and what the next step was if not. I received a phone call with the results within 2 days and told I should follow up in 1 year. I would recommend this facility to every woman without hesitation.

Annual Well Woman Exam

Dr Whitton was easy to talk to

Treatment / Procedure

He was kind and patient in answering questions you may have. Thought I was going to have a problem finding someone to actually preform a Tubal Ligation, but he said I was old enough to make my own decision and was approved for surgery.

Follow-up Visit (Problem / Complication)

Everyone involved with the procedure were reassuring and professional.
