About Leah D. Tatum, MD, FACOG

  • Dr. Tatum and her husband spend most of their time chasing after their young twins! They love to get outside and hike, kayak, and play golf, as well as traveling to new places and meeting new people. She also enjoys painting, crafting, and cooking. Her favorite local spots include walks along South Congress, viewing the city at sunset from Zilker Park, and Torchy’s Tacos!

I was drawn to medicine from a background in engineering, as medicine allowed me to put my problem-solving ability to use in an exciting and useful way. I truly enjoy developing relationships with women that allow me to take part in beautiful moments throughout their lives. I believe good care starts with great communication, compassion, and mutual respect, creating a safe place for my patients without any judgment that allows us to work together as a team to make personalized healthcare decisions.

OVERALL PROVIDER RATING

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

4.8out of 5
  • November 10, 2022

    Dr Tatum always makes me feel heard and valid with my experiences. I've seen many Obgyns over the years and the majority of visits left me feeling like a checkbox marked off. Dr Tatum has never made me feel that way. She is empathetic, engaged, and genuinely invested in me as a patient, which is so refreshing. I cried tears of relief in my car today after leaving because I finally feel heard by my medical provider. She is amazing!
