Lisa McLeod, DO, FACOOG

Dr. Lisa McLeod has been a practicing OB/GYN since 2014. Originally from New York, she began practicing there after receiving her Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine training from Western University of Health Sciences in California.

As a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine, Dr. McLeod is passionate for patient education, community outreach, and integrating osteopathic manipulation into clinical practice.

Interestingly, Dr. McLeod received her undergraduate degree in engineering. Then, in her early twenties, she began to have questions about her own body as a female, which led her to start thinking about becoming a doctor so she could do something significant to affect change in women. She decided to go into osteopathic medicine because it appealed to her from her engineering side — to be able to understand the body mechanics and fluidity of the entire body. When Dr. McLeod decided to specialize in obstetrics, she knew she had found her purpose.

Having a love for travel, Dr. McLeod has been to over 40 countries. In addition to her busy career, Dr. McLeod is also a single mom to her 5-year-old son, who has already been to over ten countries himself. 

Dr. McLeod has done multiple speaking engagements and has participated in clinical and public health activities in Haiti, Ecuador, Ghana, and Cuba.

Dr. McLeod shares why she’s so passionate about being an OB/GYN.
