Southern OB/GYN Associates (SOGA) offers obstetrical and gynecological services to women in the Metro-east St. Louis and Southwestern Illinois communities. We are currently accepting new patients in all 4 of our office locations. Our main office is in Breese, Illinois. We have additional locations in Highland, Greenville and Salem.
SOGA is committed to bringing high quality, compassionate care to our service areas. All of our physicians are university trained and board certified. Our mid level providers are all trained specifically in Women's Health, not just family practice. We have chosen to deliver babies at St. Joseph's Breese because we believe that it is the highest quality Women and Infant Center in the area.
SOGA is also a small, locally owned business. We live in the communities we serve and work very hard to support local events, charities and youth activities.
