Dr. Matthew King is a board-certified OB/GYN who has been practicing in Washington D.C. since 2014. His educational path allowed him to travel through much of Illinois, completing his undergraduate training at the University of Illinois in Champaign followed by medical school at the University of Illinois in Chicago. Dr. King stayed in Chicago for four more years to finish his OB/GYN residency at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center and served as chief resident during his final year of training. Seeking a new experience, as well as an escape from the freezing Chicago winters, Dr. King set his sights on a new course and landed in Washington D.C.
Dr. King enjoys all aspects of Obstetrics & Gynecology and caring for women at all stages of their lives, which is what excited him to join the field. He has special interests in caring for the high-risk obstetrical patient with complex medical problems; minimally invasive gynecologic surgery including laparoscopic and hysteroscopic management of abnormal uterine bleeding; and outpatient gynecologic care including contraceptive management, long-acting reversible contraception, managing cervical dysplasia, and the use of ultrasound in gynecologic practice. He has previously given an oral presentation at the Central Association of Obstetricians / Gynecologists on the role of sonography in the diagnosis of retained products of conception. His goal as an OB/GYN is to provide his patients with personalized, up to date, and evidence-based medicine so that his patients can make informed healthcare decisions and take charge of their health.
