HUNTINGTON, W.Va. - Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine, Marshall Health and Cabell Huntington Hospital medical and dental staff welcome Jesse N. Cottrell, M.D., to their obstetrics and gynecology team of providers.

Cottrell has been named an assistant professor in the department of obstetrics and gynecology at the Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine. He specializes in high-risk pregnancies, including cases of preterm labor, placenta previa, miscarriage risk, multiple births, preeclampsia and gestational diabetes. 

He earned his medical degree from the American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine in St. Maarten. He completed his residency training at Marshall’s school of medicine, followed by a maternal-fetal medicine fellowship at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson, Mississippi. He is certified by the American Board of Obstetrics & Gynecology and is a fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.

Cottrell is part of a team of specialists who provide maternal-fetal medicine care in-office and through telemedicine. Telemedicine uses a real-time video conference in the office of the patient’s local physician to interact with a maternal-fetal medicine specialist. This technology is available for high-risk pregnancy patients across West Virginia. Other team members include fellowship-trained physicians, David Chaffin, M.D., FACOG, and Kelly Cummings, M.D., FACOG.

Cottrell is accepting new patients and referrals at Marshall Obstetrics & Gynecology, an outpatient department of Cabell Huntington Hospital, located in the Marshall University Medical Center at 1600 Medical Center Drive in Huntington and Marshall Health – Teays Valley located at 300 Corporate Center Drive in Scott Depot.
