The Hormone Experts

Dr. Polly Watson


Dr. Polly Watson is a board certified OBGYN who has been refining her practice of women’s medicine for almost 20 years. After graduating from the Medical College of Georgia in 2000, she completed her OBGYN residency at Mercy Hospital and Medical Center in Chicago, IL in 2004. After starting her own family, she chose to focus solely on gynecology beginning in 2007. Early in her career, she found that many women felt underserved in busy OBGYN practices which focused on delivering babies. Seeking to serve these women better, she concentrated her practice on menopausal medicine and became a North American Menopause Society Certified Practitioner in 2009. She has maintained that certification for almost a decade.

In her free time, Dr. Watson enjoys yoga, hiking, biking with her kids, cooking, reading and growing heirloom veggies.

Kate Willis, NP-C

Kate has been working in women's health for 14 years in the field of gynecologic oncology and sexual wellness. In 2021, she received her certification through the Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM), and is thankful for such solid and evidence-based training. She uses it daily in her care for patients as she works to address the root cause of disease and dysfunction in the body.
