Norman Regional Health System’s Care for Women – Norman is welcoming obstetrician/gynecologist Alyssa “Mady” Ohs, MD, to its team.

Dr. Ohs will care for patients at Care for Women – Norman, 3400 W. Tecumseh Rd., Suite 205. She is joining Laurel Jordan, DO, at the clinic. She will be delivering babies and performing surgeries at Norman Regional HealthPlex.

Dr. Ohs received her doctorate of medicine from the University of Oklahoma in 2015 and completed her residency at TriHealth Bethesda North and Good Samaritan Hospitals in Cincinnati, Ohio.

During her residency, she served as the chief resident and received the “Residents Teaching Medical Students Award” in 2018 and 2019.

 “My interest in obstetrics and gynecology began when I was 16 years old and my mom needed a hysterectomy. I remember meeting her OBGYN and being fascinated by a job that focused on science and helping women,” Dr. Ohs said. “In medical school, students rotate in all medical specialties. My favorite experiences were delivering babies and the opportunities I had to support women during the many different challenging times in their lives.”

As an OBGYN, Dr. Ohs offers all types of care for women, but she has a special interest in women’s health and wellness, pediatric and adolescent gynecology, comprehensive pregnancy care, evaluation and management of cervical health, birth control evaluation, menopause health, pelvic pain and endometriosis evaluation, pre-pregnancy counseling, breastfeeding and postpartum care, evaluation and treatment of uterine bleeding, and more.

Breastfeeding

Her interest in breastfeeding came after she had her son. She thought that being an OBGYN would somehow make breastfeeding “easier.”

“I was so wrong. Breastfeeding can be extremely challenging. My own journey inspired me to research and learn more about complications of breastfeeding,” she said.

While in Cincinnati, Dr. Ohs served as a Breastfeeding in Residency committee member and as a Bethesda North Exclusive Breastfeeding task force member.

Her interest in pediatric and adolescent gynecology started during medical school through her involvement with the SUCCEED Clinic, a multidisciplinary team at University of Oklahoma Children’s Hospital that cares for people affected by disorders of sex development.

Dr. Ohs said she realizes that going to see the gynecologist can be a very vulnerable experience, but her goal is to create a safe place that feels comfortable. She values taking the time to listen and teach.

In her free time

Aside from medicine, Dr. Ohs enjoys spending time with her son and husband. She also enjoys hiking and camping. One of her favorite places to go camping in Oklahoma is the Wichita Wildlife Refuge.

She also plays violin. Dr. Ohs said all her years of playing violin has helped her with her surgical skills due to the violin also requiring precise, steady movements.
