A native Canadian, Dr. Amy Sigman originated from Montreal when she was 9 years old and spent her youth in the greater Dallas area. Following in her father’s, Dr. Gerald Sigman, footsteps, she became an obstetrician and gynecologist after she saw the positive impact he had on the lives of thousands throughout his career in medicine. Because of his influence and her own experiences, she’s committed to upholding his legacy by continuing to care for patients with compassion and excellence in medical care throughout her career.
Now a proud U.S. citizen, Dr. Sigman had the honor of attending the Ivy League’s University of Pennsylvania and completed her study of medicine at the University of Texas’ Southwestern Medical School. She was a resident at Parkland Memorial Hospital.
“I have patients that started with me when they were teenagers and now are having babies of their own, and other patients that had babies when I was having my own.”
In private practice since 1999, she was the first female doctor to practice at Medical City, now an all-female physicians practice. She is proud of the work of her and her partners, and she feels they stand out in the community because they continue to be at the forefront of exciting improvements in the field of medicine and specifically gynecologic procedures to improve female health.
About her own experiences at Medical City, she said: “I love the continuity of care that is so central to the field of obstetrics and gynecology. I have patients that started with me when they were teenagers and now are having babies of their own, and other patients that had babies when I was having my own. It is the sharing of these life experiences in the setting of providing compassionate medical care that really inspired me, and I look forward to meeting new patients and growing older together, as well.”
A board-certified obstetrician and gynecologist, Sigman divides her time between healthy, normal pregnancies and complicated operative deliveries, and she is particularly interested in minimally invasive surgeries including robotics and hysteroscopy.
Dr. Sigman has been featured in D Magazine as one of the best doctors in Dallas on numerous occasions, an honor among itself, but she also enjoys the privilege of spending time with her husband and two girls. She has a deep passion for music that’s reflected in her love of the piano (she recently held her first recital in nearly 20 years), as well as cooking and gardening.
Regarding serving the greater Dallas area, “We have a varied mix of patient populations and I love the fact that our patients comes to see us for generations,” she said. “In other words, even as the communities change around us, the same patients and families continue to stay with the practice.”
