WELCOME, DR. ALLISON R. CAVAZOS!
The physician and staff of Oak Hills Women’s Center, P.A. are pleased to introduce the newest addition to our medical family, Allison R. Cavazos, M.D. We ask everyone to join us in extending to her a sincere welcome to the medical practice. Having completed the Obstetrics-Gynecology residency program at Parkland Hospital, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, Texas on June 30, 2017, Dr. Cavazos will begin seeing patients in the clinic on August 1, 2017.
Dr. Cavazos was born and raised in San Antonio, and I can truthfully say that her father, Dr. Bernard Cavazos, and I are thrilled that she and her husband, Justin Scharwath, made the decision to move to San Antonio in order for her to begin her career at Oak Hills Women’s Center.
A graduate of Tom C. Clark High School in San Antonio, Dr. Cavazos received a Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences at Stanford University, with high honors in Academic Achievement. She returned home to attend medical school at UTHSCSA, and graduated with a Doctorate of Medicine and Master of Public Health in 2013. Through the residency match program in which medical students participate, Dr. Cavazos was selected to begin her training at UT Southwestern. The demanding four- year Ob-Gyn residency has prepared her well for private practice, and she is very excited to become the newest member of our staff.
Dr. Cavazos is no stranger to Oak Hills Women’s Center, having worked with us in the business office prior to attending medical school. Many of our patients remember her and frequently ask if she is coming back to San Antonio to practice. Now we can proudly say yes!
Appointments are now being accepted for Dr. Allison Cavazos at Oak Hills Women’s Center, P.A. at 210-692-3636. She is available to see patients with obstetrical or gynecological needs, and will see patients of all ages, from teenage years through menopause. Routine appointments may be made with her Monday-Friday. In the event of an urgent problem, same day appointments are available.
