Dr. Shanon Forseter, MD
St. Louis area OBGYN
Voted "Best OBGYN in Saint Louis"
by St Louis Magazine
About Me—I was born and raised in St. Louis and lucky enough to be able to remain in Missouri for both medical school and residency. I have a beautiful wife and a perfect son, and I always enjoy life to the fullest!
I chose to be an OBGYN because it is a branch of medicine where I form lifelong relationships with my patients. There is nothing more fulfilling to me than assisting my Saint Louis area Obstetrics and Gynecology patients as they go through each phase of life, navigating the joys, challenges and transitions of the female body.
"Dr. Forseter is, by far, the best physician I have ever seen. Now that our baby is born, I am actually a bit sad not to be seeing him on a regular basis! ...Throughout my entire pregnancy, he was extremely respectful of wishes (which at times included refusing certain tests), supportive of my decisions and always had time for me. I honestly could go on an on about what a phenomenal doctor he is!"

We truly believe that we are only as strong as our staff. We employ highly qualified individuals who excel in their roles and service.
As one of not very many Saint Louis OBGYN’s operating solo private practices, one of my goals has always been to be accessible to my patients. That means being able to spend time with patients, be reachable and responsive by phone and email and yes—even starting our appointments on time. (My wonderful and efficient staff are really extraordinary at making this happen!)
While a board-certified OB-GYN, I am always still learning. My philosophy is "listen to the patient." I firmly believe that, while I have the medical knowledge and skills, you know your own body best. For example, there are many different positive ways for a woman to give birth—quite simply I am there to support the mother’s personal preferences and plans. I will always do my best to make sure each individual and family has that special moment unfold as they envision it. Similarly, as a woman ages and finds her body changing, it is essential that we choose the path that is not only medically beneficial, but also is in alignment with her personal preferences.
I take pride in getting to know each of my patients individually. As your OB-GYN, I vow to provide the best and most personalized care possible. I truly look forward to meeting you and embarking on this journey through life with you!
We offer a diverse selection of services from gynecological exams to infertility solutions to natural and cesarean childbirth.
