Our Approach

Dr. Brougher feels that each patient is special,  and she has built her practice and assembled her team to reflect these values. She and her team are deeply committed to ensuring that each patient’s needs are fully met. Since opening her practice in 1990, many things have changed, but this is one that never will. As a result, Dr. Brougher and her team have embarked on this new journey of Bluebonnet OB/GYN to ensure that above everything else, in her practice, the patient is the top priority.

Our Story

Bluebonnet OB/GYN was born out of a desire to provide patients with a warmer, more comfortable, personal, and intimate experience. In 2014 Dr. Brougher decided to make this healthcare model a reality and separated her practice from a shared office with a larger group and moved to a new location in Methodist Plaza. Nurse Practitioner Laurie Hudec, WHNP shared this vision and followed Dr. Brougher to the new practice. The rest is history!
