Dr. Cortez’ Treatment Philosophy
When I first started a career in medicine, I was like most young doctors. “Why be a doctor? To help people” – but with medicine today that has become increasingly difficult.
As people come to see me, their lives are more complicated than they have ever been before. In addition, people today are educated about medical problems and their options to treat those problems. If you go online, you have a wealth of information at your fingertips. Many patients come to me with an idea of what they have going on. So the question becomes, where do I fit into this equation as a doctor?
Because the truth is, I may be a specialist in hormones, a specialist in medical weight loss and a specialist in women’s health but YOU ARE STILL THE SPECIALIST IN YOU!
You know you better than anyone else. There has never been another you and there will never be another you. And you know when you feel “off” or when “something if not right”, whatever that may be.
So when I meet someone for the first time I always have the same goal – How can I help this person be the best person that they can be? How can I help this person to achieve their goals?
Sometimes that question is answered easily and sometimes it takes time and patience – but I will not stop until we get there. This is how I help people.
Leora C. Collins, M.D.
Dr. Collins offers a wide range of obstetric and gynecological services for women. She has received training in medically supervised weight loss as well as hormone management training for both men and women.
Dr. Collins is a Junior Fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology. She was born in South Texas and knew from a young age that she wanted to be a doctor. In high school she decided she wanted to be an Obstetrician/Gynecologist after noticing how difficult it was to find female physicians for herself. She graduated in the top 3 of her high school class in San Antonio and was recognized as a National Hispanic Scholar.
She then received a scholarship to attend Stanford University in California, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Human Biology and a minor in Latin American Studies. During college, she traveled to other countries such as Chile and Cuba, where she studied different healthcare systems and how they compare to the United States. She then decided to return to her home state to pursue a career in medicine that she hoped would influence young women in a positive way.
After receiving her medical degree at University of Texas Southwestern in Dallas, Dr. Collins completed her residency at Methodist Health systems in Dallas. There, she participated in leadership roles and learned a lot about high risk obstetrics and minimally invasive surgery. Dr. Collins offers a wide range of obstetric and gynecological services for women. She has special interests in holistic obstetrics and minimally invasive gynecologic surgery. She has also received additional training for weight loss, thyroid, and hormone management for men and women.
In her spare time, Dr. Collins enjoys spending time with her family, gardening and reading.
