See DOC Run for Family Health & Fitness Day

Dr. Timothy E. Phelan, is kicking off SeeDadRun with an early run on Saturday, June 13! Dr. Phelan, an ob/gyn physician who practices at Creekside Ob/Gyn of Folsom, has taken care of thousands of women and delivered hundreds of babies.  In his free time he challenges himself by running long distances. In the last 10 years he has completed over 50 competitive running events.  Along with 10 road marathons (26.2 miles) he has also completed 17 ultra-marathons.  Many races are held to raise money for worthy causes, but with the current pandemic all races have been canceled. So, Dr. Phelan has created his own Sacramento Life Center Solo Charity Run.  Donations will go to expand Health and Nutrition classes for new moms at the Sacramento Life Center. 

Running From His Office to Ours!

Leaving from Creekside Ob/Gyn of Folsom at 6:30am Saturday June 13 he will run 25.5 miles to the Sacramento Life Center office in the Arden-Arcade neighborhood.  Starting with the Humbug Creek trail behind his office he will follow the beautiful bike trails of Folsom and Sacramento County.  After 1 mile the Humbug Creek trail joins the Willow Creek Trail, which 4 miles later meets the Jedediah Smith Memorial Trail at Lake Natoma.  He will continue downstream along the American River Bike Trail for another 20 miles.  Passing Hazel, Sunrise, Watt, and Howe avenues he will eventually reach Cal Expo.  Leaving the bike trail near Cal Expo he will finish up by running along Hurley Avenue, take a left at Bell Avenue and then less than a mile later reach the Sacramento Life Center around 11:30 am.

By running these 25.5 miles Dr. Phelan hopes to raise money to expand Health and Nutrition classes for new moms at the Sacramento Life Center. 

Get to Know Dr. Phelan

Originally from Oregon, Dr. Timothy E. Phelan, has studied and worked all over the U.S. in order to learn how to provide exceptional health care for women.  After he graduated cum laude from the University of Rochester in New York with a B.A. in Biology he returned to Oregon and received his medical degree from the Oregon Health Sciences University.  During medical school he saw his first delivery and from that moment knew he wanted to be an obstetrician.  Knowing that skilled doctors require vast amounts of experience he sought out a residency program that was famous for its large number of patients. After a year of internship at the renowned Charity Hospital in New Orleans he completed his residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Louisiana State University School of Medicine in New Orleans.  Moving to Northern California in 1999 he established his own private practice, Creekside OB/GYN of Folsom, to provide exceptional-compassionate care to women from adolescence to menopause.

To maintain his skills Dr. Phelan is a diplomat of the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology and a Fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.  He delivers and operates at Mercy Hospital of Folsom where he has served as chair of the OB/GYN Department, the Physicians Performance and Improvement Committee and the Interdisciplinary Committee.  As a de Vinci trained laparoscopic surgeon he has the distinction of being the first surgeon at Mercy Hospital of Folsom to perform a da Vinci robotic surgery.  Dr. Phelan enjoys spending time with his wife and three daughters.  In his free time he challenges himself by running ultra-marathons.
