Meet Dr. Pecht
Denise B. Pecht, MD, FACOG, is an OB/GYN at Gwinnett's Progressive Healthcare for Women in Lawrenceville, Georgia. Dr. Pecht has been practicing medicine for over 25 years and has been practicing gynecology exclusively since 2004.
Dr. Pecht has always been passionate about helping people and solving problems, so becoming a medical doctor was the most natural career move for her. She earned her Bachelor of Science in education at the University of Tennessee (don’t let that fool you, she is and will always be a UGA fan – GO DAWGS!). She received her medical degree from Louisiana State University School of Medicine and completed her residency at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Denver, Colorado.
She is inspired daily by her patients and her team at Gwinnett's Progressive Healthcare for Women and has enjoyed building relationships throughout her entire career. With her passionate, go-getter attitude, she works hard to ensure her patients are well taken care of and their health care needs are met.
Dr. Pecht was born and raised in Gwinnett County (Lawrenceville, to be exact). She has been married since 1979 to her husband, Tom, and they have two grown children (and one son-in-law) – Britt, Adam, and Ryan. She enjoys reading, shopping, and Pilates. But most of all, she loves to try new things, whether it’s hiking, sailing, or eating at a new restaurant. You’ll never find her sitting still, and you certainly won’t see her retire any time soon!
Dr. Pecht’s favorite quote is “Just do it.” – Nike
