Dr. Maria Reyes grew up in East Texas where her father was an OB/GYN physician who not only inspired her, but also allowed her to experience his vocation firsthand. “For years, my father was the only OB in town. I saw the positive impact he had in our community. I loved going with him on rounds, even when I was very young. Getting to see the new babies through the nursery window was a real thrill for me. I started working in his office when I was only ten, and thought the pregnant women were so beautiful.”
“It is such an honor to partner with women and be part of their pregnancy and their lives, often delivering two or three babies together. Honestly, I see my patients as a close friend or relative…”
After attending high school at The Hockaday School in Dallas, Dr. Reyes attended Emory University where she earned a degree in psychology. She received her medical degree from Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston, Massachusetts and returned to “The Big D” to complete her residency at Parkland Memorial Hospital at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. During residency, Dr. Reyes trained with the AWH physicians so she is excited to partner with them after knowing them for many years.
Dr. Reyes enjoys caring for women in all stages of life. Her clinical interests include preventive care, general and high-risk obstetrics, family planning/contraception, and bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. In addition, she likes helping women through the challenges of menopause and sexual dysfunction. She is proficient at minimally invasive surgery, including the use of the da Vinci robot and offers in office procedures such as endometrial ablations.
Board certified and fluent in Spanish, Dr. Reyes is a member of the American Medical Association, Texas Medical Association and Dallas County Medical Society. She is a Fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and has practiced in the Dallas area since 2004.
Dr. Reyes is humbled and grateful for the time she spends with her patients. “It is such an honor to partner with women and be part of their pregnancy and their lives, often delivering two or three babies together. Honestly, I see my patients as a close friend or relative,” Dr. Reyes said. “Once you choose the physician you want to partner with, you’ll continue your care with that physician throughout pregnancy, delivery, postpartum follow-up, and future pregnancies.”
Dr. Maria Reyes is accepting new patients and looks forward to partnering with her current and future patients, working towards healthy lives and healthy families, just like her dad.
