Pushpa Liseli Phillips, MD, MPH, FACOG
Dr. Pushpa Phillips has been a practicing OB/GYN since 2013.
Originally from Trinidad and Tobago in the West Indies, Dr. Phillips received her Doctor of Medicine from St. George’s University in Grenada. She then completed her residency in New York at Staten Island University Hospital, where she met her husband, Charles, who is now a practicing internist. Dr. Phillips and her husband have five children, including a set of toddler twins.
Dr. Phillips hails from a large family full of females. Besides being the oldest of three girls, she has many aunts and female cousins. Being surrounded by so many females and seeing the issues women experience, is what inspired her to choose women’s health.
“If you can help the leading female in a family, you can help the entire family.”– Dr. Phillips’ philosophy
Her parents worked very hard to provide for their three daughters and modeled for them love and appreciation for all people. She attributes this to why she feels at ease interacting with people from all walks of life and backgrounds. She feels very blessed to have grown up in such a large and supportive family.
As an OB/GYN, Dr. Phillips enjoys all aspects of treating women and has helped patients ranging from teens to her oldest patient who was 99. Her real passion is in serving the underserved and especially in educating women in all health issues. She also has an MPH – Master of Public Health. Dr. Phillips receives fulfillment and satisfaction from helping women in all aspects of their health, including the importance of nutrition and fitness. Even as a busy physician, wife, and mother to five, Dr. Phillips still makes time to exercise.
Having experienced her own GYN issues and difficult pregnancies, Dr. Phillips uses her personal experiences to relate to her patients. She truly enjoys listening to her patients, and has an unparalleled attention to detail, and feels she is living her true purpose.
“If I can help somebody as I pass along, then my living shall not be in vain.”– Dr. Phillips shares her life motto — a verse from a song her father sang to her as a child.
