John Bruchalski, PhD

Dr. John Bruchalski is the Founder of Tepeyac OB/GYN, a pro-life, faith-based practice in Fairfax, Virginia serving women in the D.C. metropolitan area for over 25 years. Tepeyac’s unique model is the first of its kind to provide patients, including those who are uninsured or low income, with quality medical care of the highest life-affirming standards.

Dr. Bruchalski received his M.D. from the University of South Alabama College of Medicine in Mobile, AL in 1987. He completed his residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Eastern Virginia Medical Center and the Jones Institute for Reproductive Medicine in Norfolk, Virginia in 1991. He received board certification in 1993.

During his training, Dr. Bruchalski performed abortions believing he was helping women. After a spiritual awakening, he realized abortion was not achieving freedom, health, and happiness for women. Dr. Bruchalski stopped performing abortions, returned to the faith, and felt God’s call to start a medical practice that truly helped women. Dr. Bruchalski started Tepeyac Family Center in 1994, and in 2000, he founded Divine Mercy Care, a non-profit to advance pro-life healthcare by supporting Tepeyac and educating and unifying pro-lifers.

Bruchalski’s hope is to educate medical students and the broader community about what it means to view medicine as mercy, to hate diseases but love patients, and to present a philosophy of medicine coherent with an integrated view of women’s health. He strives to combine the best of OB/GYN medicine and care for those in need while following the teachings of the church on the sacredness of life.Bruchalski
