Alessandra M. Taylor, MD
Dr. Taylor grew up in Brazil, moving with her family to Florida when she was 16. In her free time, Dr. Taylor loves the outdoors, traveling, and spending time with her husband, young child, and dog. She also enjoys exercising, Peloton, and CrossFit. Dr. Taylor is relatively new to Central Texas, and looks forward to exploring all the different trails and springs.
I chose to be a doctor when I was 14 and witnessed a young girl lose her life in a small village in Brazil because they didn’t have enough doctors to care for her. It was a very clear moment in which I knew I wanted to have the skills to be able to at least give my best and try to help as many women as possible. I shadowed an OB/Gyn for a few weeks and knew this was the specialty for me. I loved the idea of helping women through each step in their lives, from painful periods to pregnancy, miscarriages, and menopause, along with all the cultural pressures imposed on them. I deeply believe in evidence based medicine and shared-decision making. My goal is to educate my patients, present them with their options and share my expertise. Then together, we can find the best individualized course of care for them.
