Board-Certified Gynecologist, Dr. Baggot
At Guadalupe Medical Center, Dr. Paddy Jim Baggot offers comprehensive gynecology services to teens and women in central Los Angeles. Whether you need a well-woman exam or a surgical procedure, Dr. Baggot will approach your care with genuine concern and professionalism.
As a board-certified gynecologist, Dr. Baggot treats common gynecologic problems as well as infertility. For many women, the cause of infertility cannot be explained. If you have been trying to conceive, Dr. Baggot will check for toxins and nutrient deficiencies and correct them.
With a certification in clinical metal toxicology, Dr. Baggot will test for the presence of heavy metals such as lead, mercury, arsenic, antimony, uranium, nickel, aluminum, and cadmium – all of which are environmental pollutants that may affect hormone levels and contribute to infertility.
Research has found that nutritional imbalances or deficiencies may also play a role in fertility, as well as in preventing miscarriages and having a healthy baby. Dr. Baggot will check your levels of a number of nutrients, including folic acid, iron, vitamin B12, vitamin D, calcium, magnesium, zinc, copper, selenium, manganese, and chromium.
