Napa Valley Abundance

In his 40-year career, John T. Armstrong Jr., MD, has experienced more than 230,000 patient encounters. “I was blessed to have the TTUHSC School of Medicine as my foundation; otherwise, none of this would have happened,” Armstrong said.

He opened his OB-GYN private practice in the Napa Valley after completing his residency at UCSF Medical Center. Armstrong has had some memorable experiences, including delivering a set of quadruplets.

As a gynecologist, Armstrong has brought innovative patient care to the region. One such innovation is the Ultrasound Breast and Ovarian Cancer Screening of the Napa Valley, a program whose goal is to greatly improve the early detection of these maladies.

Armstrong is currently working on a new innovation: a redesigned vaginal pessary device to provide improved, nonsurgical treatment for pelvic organ prolapse and urinary incontinence.

“Each day of work is challenging and rewarding,” he said. “The reward is in the doctor-patient connection I’ve been able to enjoy for the past four decades. I’m grateful for TTUHSC — my cup truly runneth over.” -Glenys Young
