About FWMG

About Fresno Women's Medical Group (FWMG)

For a long time, Dr. Kelli Beingesser and Dr. Gail Newel had a dream. They wanted to start a group of obstetrician-gynecologists who would take care of women in the special way that they deserve. Both physicians were at the forefront of medical education for women, and as women themselves – consumers of the product they wanted to deliver – they had ideas about how to provide quality health care to women.

In 1998, they realized this dream by founding Fresno Women’s Medical Group (FWMG), offering excellence in Obstetrics and Gynecology in a setting that is supportive of women’s comfort and needs. In 2014, Dr. Sharon Kopacz took over the practice. She and Dr. Linscheid have continued to build upon the original vision of FWMG, to provide safe, non-judgmental, patient-focused care, using wisdom, education, & empathy. Along with our wonderful mid-levels, we provide health care for men, women and their families. At FWMG, we believe in patient choice and responsibility through education.
