He found himself, upon graduation, in unexpected territory a Family Medicine Residency at the University of Minnesota, Bethesda Clinic. Michael excelled, and was active in leadership and research there as well. He won several teaching awards, most notably, the Minnesota Academy of Family Medicine Resident of the Year award, and was nominated for the National award. Dr. Hervey enjoyed critical care and obstetrics so much that he applied for a Family Medicine fellowship in both fields at Maricopa Medical Center.

Dr. Hervey trained at Phoenix Integrated OB/GYN Residency. Once again, he received numerous teaching awards, nominated and voted upon by peers and the Faculty.
In 2013, Dr. Hervey joined forces with Dr’s. Michael Medchill and Eugenia Politis. Together they provided safe and efficient care to the most complex and high-risk patients. Dr. Hervey has a significant interest in full spectrum women’s health. His training as an OB/GYN and Family Medicine physician allows for him to provide a broad spectrum of care competently and completely. Since joining Dr. Medchill’s practice, Dr. Hervey has branched out into developing a robust integrated women’s health care model. He, has lead hospital administrators, is in discussion regarding facility design. He has also aligned with multiple birthing centers (Baby Moon Inn) and Midwifery practices to provide a stronger, yet softer, patient touch. He has explored deep relationships with Bayless Health Care to support the mental health and primary care of women throughout their pregnancy and beyond. From these explorations, Dr. Hervey, together with his wife; Ellie Tan CNM, WHNP-BC developed Premier OB/GYN LLC- TeamBabyCatcher.com. Together they hope to combine all of what they have learned in theirvarious explorations and provide a compassionate and unique care team as they venture out on their own.
