About Leah M. Mello, MD

  • Dr. Mello grew up in Oregon. In her free time, she enjoys raising two children, outdoor activities that the Hill Country offers, Austin restaurants, and music venues. Her favorite area locale is Lake Travis.

Why wouldn’t I want to be an Ob/Gyn?  I am privileged to care for women at every stage of their lives. I chose a career in medicine so I could help improve the quality of life of the women in my community.  I believe in providing every woman with consistent, compassionate, evidence-based medical care. Before I became a medical provider, I sometimes felt I was not being heard when relaying my healthcare concerns, so I strive to listen to and educate my patients.

OVERALL PROVIDER RATING

Rating based on the helpfulness of the doctor's nurse and/or medical assistant (MA)

4.8out of 5
  • November 28, 2022

    I called before my lab appointment to ask if we could add an additional panel. I spent about 20 minutes on hold, hung up and tried back for another 10-15 minutes before I connected with a nurse. I know that your recording says that there may be longer wait times and I appreciate that message to set expectations. I know everyone is very busy and even with the wait, between the call, the front desk staff, and the lab tech, I was able to get everything done without scheduling an additional visit. Thank you.

  • November 23, 2022

    Nurse and doctor made things very comfortable and were very kind.

  • November 23, 2022

    Dr. Mello and her nurse were very friendly and helpful in getting me through what could have been a very stressful visit. God bless them both!

  • November 19, 2022

    I LOVED THAT THE PROVIDER WAS ATTENTIVE AND LISTENED TO MY CONCERNS. SHE WENT OUT OF HER WAY TO MAKE SURE I GOT AN ULTRASOUND APPT.

  • November 16, 2022

    Was told provider was running 20 to 30 behind. However, it was over an hour behind. Understand things happen, but additional communication would have been appreciated with that wait time.

  • November 15, 2022

    I was called and told I needed an ultra sound so they rescheduled my whole appoint so I could go for the ultra sound just to be told they can't even see what was requested through an ultra sound and I was sent back to the office to wait over and hour without even doing the ultrasound. I arrived before 11 and wasn't even seen til 12:30.
