Our Story

Generations of Women OBGYN was founded by Dr. Barbara Mercado. Dr. Mercado has been an OBGYN doctor in the Fredericksburg area for over 15 years. Her passion for her patients and women’s health have driven her to exceed the typical medical standards. Through her many years of experience she noticed a major lack of preventative care in the medical community and decided to take on the challenge to change that. In early 2011, Generations of Women OBGYN was established.

Generations of Women OBGYN is built on a vision where prevention is the standard of medical care. With so many medical advancements now available, why would we wait for symptoms to present? Our commitment has been to provide the highest quality medical service in obstetrics and gynecology through every stage of a women’s life. We want to make sure we are not only providing the highest level of medical care available, but also an experience that every patient looks forward to. Every aspect of your appointment matters from the time you walk in the front door to the time you checkout. Generations of Women is a team of highly skilled individuals with a passion for preventative women’s health.
