Carolyn Ross Riley, MD
Gynecologist and Weight Loss Physician in North Dallas, TX
Dr. Carolyn Riley was raised in Los Angeles, California. She is board certified in obstetrics and gynecology. She graduated with honors from Xavier University of Louisiana where she received a Bachelor of Science degree. She completed her undergraduate medical education at Meharry Medical College School of Medicine prior to completing her residency training in obstetrics and gynecology at Tulane University.
Dr. Riley chose obstetrics and gynecology as her life’s work because she enjoys guiding women through the progression of their reproductive years and assisting them through a smooth transition into menopause. During her her years in private practice, she has observed a growing need to address the weight loss needs of her patients. It is this observation that has ignited a passion to practice weight loss medicine. Her goal at the end of every patient encounter is that each person leaves feeling a little more empowered than when she/he arrived. In her office, Dr. Riley offers weight loss and gynecologic services that are tailored to individual needs. She has special interests in weight loss medicine, adolescent health, abnormal uterine bleeding, minimally invasive surgery, and educating women about their bodies and their health.
Dr. Riley is a proud member of The Obesity Medicine Association, as well as The American Congress of Obstetrics and Gynecology and The National Medical Association. Her personal interests include traveling, exploring new restaurants, attending sporting events, listening to music, attending plays, and spending time with family and friends. Dr. Riley is happily married and has a wonderful 15 year old daughter. Dr. Riley and her family recently moved to Dallas from Houston. The family is excited about becoming active members in the Dallas community.
