Originally from Monroe, Louisiana, Dr. Erin Hall-Minnie credits her non-medical family and several dedicated high school science teachers with encouraging her interest in medicine and the confidence to pursue that dream. Her academic success and character as a medical student earned her election to the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society.
Dr. Hall-Minnie says she chose obstetrics and gynecology because “I love the opportunity to build relationships with my patients that can make a difference in their health as they go through significant life events. At the same time, I can channel my passion for advocacy toward improving the availability and quality of women’s health care.” As a Junior Fellow Section Officer for the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, she has worked on some of these issues at the national level on Capitol Hill, as well as at the state and local level in Texas. She has accumulated an impressive record of service in healthcare, volunteering on medical missions in Nicaragua, Uganda, Honduras, and Kenya, and in numerous community programs.
In her medical practice, Dr. Hall-Minnie enjoys helping women learn more about their bodies and their health—whether helping them to choose birth control, to plan for and achieve a healthy pregnancy, or to manage gynecologic concerns. She also has a particular interest in working with her patients to develop strategies to prepare for and recover from surgeries like hysterectomies and cesarean deliveries so that they can have the best possible outcome and experience.
Dr. Hall-Minnie feels that communication is the most important part of the relationship between a woman and her doctor. “I hope to make each patient feel comfortable sharing her wishes, fears, goals, and expectations. I will strive to communicate in a way that she can understand, so we can work together to develop a plan for her care.
Dr. Hall-Minnie and her husband have two dogs “who make us laugh every day.” They both enjoy cooking, traveling, and good food. She adds, “We are excited to plant roots and become a part of the Birmingham community.”
