Meeting Individual Patient Needs

I am dedicated to providing women’s care and addressing women’s issues at the highest levels. As an OB/GYN, I’m fortunate to build lifelong relationships with women and families of all backgrounds and life stages.

I believe listening to a patient is just as important as providing opinions and medical guidance. I also enjoy the surgical aspects of gynecology — everything from hysterectomies to laparoscopies.

Dr. Summer Gilmer, who is originally from Spartanburg, S.C., has resided in Asheville for the past six years. 

She went to undergraduate school at Wofford College in her hometown, where she studied biology and was a member of the school’s tennis team. She earned her medical degree from the University of South Carolina, in Columbia, and completed her residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Mountain Area Health Education Center in Asheville. 

After her training she worked in Boone, N.C., for five years before returning to Asheville to join Laurel OB/GYN.

Dr. Gilmer enjoys following a patient through her pregnancy, getting to know her personally, and continuing to see her throughout her lifetime. Whether its an annual exam or another gynecological concern, she provides individualized care to address her patient’s unique needs and health goals.

Dr. Gilmer is an active mom to a son and daughter. When she’s not providing care to her patients, she can be found playing outside with her kids or trying to defeat her children at card games, like UNO and Go Fish. She’s also an avid reader and runner.

Laurel is the best!  I have been a patient for 21 years. They have helped me through infertility issues, pregnancy and now menopause. I wouldn’t go anywhere else!!

What a wonderful practice! I had to bring my screaming two month old to my appointment and the entire staff was patient and kind. Thorough visit and Dr. Summer Gilmer has been a blessing pre pregnancy and postpartum!

The staff seemed genuinely glad to see me and were very helpful in making a routine doctor’s visit a very pleasant experience. Dr. Gilmer was attentive and thorough. From start to finish, this was the best doctor’s visit I think I’ve ever had.
