The Black Eyed Peas released their hit “Boom Boom Pow,” leggings were the big fashion trend and The Snuggie made its illustrious debut, taking the “As Seen on TV” store to new heights.
Yes, the year was 2009 — and while all of these trends and milestones are fun to look back on, there’s another one that we’d like to celebrate here at FĒNOM Women’s Care. It’s the year that Dr. Sunny Glenn, MD, FACOG, started her career in private practice.
Now, a decade later, Dr. Glenn is still holding true on her mission statement of treating every patient with the utmost compassion, respect and skill. Pop culture may have changed, but Dr. Glenn continues to excel at her craft — and we’re honored to have her on our team.
‘The Best OBGYN in the Metroplex’
“Genuine.” “Attentive.” “Dedicated.” Those are just a few of the words that Dr. Glenn’s patients use to describe her.
While we’ve known for 10 years how great of a doctor Dr. Glenn is, it’s the opinion of her patients that truly matters in any sort of medical practice. And while she’s beloved by everyone here at FENOM, she’s equally beloved by the women she cares for each and every day. She’s regularly lauded by her patients as the best OB/Gyn in the Texas Metroplex area, and one of her patients from Azie, Texas, remembers how impactful her care was throughout her two high-risk pregnancies.
Another patient remembers how Dr. Glenn went above and beyond, and on a holiday weekend no less, to deliver her child. “When my water broke that Monday morning, Dr. Glenn came and checked on me as soon as she got in the office then throughout the day three to four more times,” the patient from Burleson, Texas, wrote on Yelp. “When her office closed at 5 p.m., she came back ready to stay and deliver my baby, but (the baby) just wasn’t ready to come out yet. Let me remind you that she was on call all weekend and it was Thanksgiving weekend! She came back in my room around 7 p.m., told me she was going to go home and eat lunch with her son and then she would be back, and sure enough she kept her word. She was back within two hours and stayed with me until I delivered at 11 p.m. that night! This makes me tear up thinking about it because she could have easily pawned me off on the on-call doctor and went home to be with her family and rest after a long busy weekend, but delivering her babies is important to her and it shows she genuinely cares about what she does.”
Delivering Babies: Exactly What Dr. Glenn is Supposed to be Doing
Ten years. A decade. If you ask Dr. Glenn, she’ll tell you that 10 years equates to 3,650 days or 5.256 million minutes. Dr. Glenn will tell you that the nights have been long, but the years have been short. She’ll also be the first to tell you that there’s nothing else she’d rather be doing with her life. To her, there’s the warm fuzzy feeling she gets when she delivers a baby and places it into its mother’s arms for the first time. There’s the satisfaction of a perfectly executed vaginal hysterectomy. But she’s also experienced heartbreak with her patients, and acted as a pillar of support for the mother during periods of loss — something that’s arguably just as important as a successful delivery. As she’s always quick to note, every woman that she treats is fighting a different battle. Some result in successful pregnancies, others do not.
Dr. Glenn has never doubted her purpose in life, even amid infertility struggles of her own. The pendulum continues to swing, and Dr. Glenn continues to excel at what she does. While one constant of life is change, some things always stay the same. And since she started at FENOM Women’s Care 10 years ago, the exceptional care and attention that Dr. Glenn has given every one of her patients has remained unchanged. We’re so lucky to call her a teammate and friend.
Congratulations on 10 years in private practice Dr. Glenn! Here’s to many, many more.
