About Sharon A. Vaz, MD, MPH

  • When she is not working, Dr. Vaz enjoys traveling to new destinations, hosting and visiting friends and family, and exploring all that Austin has to offer. Being relatively new to the region, she welcomes recommendations on your favorite spots!

It is a privilege to be able to guide women through some of the most personal and powerful moments of their lives. I enjoy the variety of clinical experiences in the field of OB/GYN, from adolescents going through puberty to women navigating family planning, pregnancy, and menopause. My goal is to provide compassionate, evidence-based care to every patient, in order to help women understand their bodies, manage their symptoms, and make educated choices about their reproductive health.
