Get to know Obstetrician-Gynecologist Dr. Viviana Ellis, who serves patients in San Antonio, Texas.

Dr. Ellis is a distinguished and compassionate physician whose commitment to women’s healthcare is marked by both dedication and honor. With a passion for assisting women of all ages, she approaches her profession as a privilege, taking great pride in empowering her patients to make informed decisions about their health. At Legacy Women’s Health OB/GYN in San Antonio, her goal is to form partnerships with her patients, fostering a sense of agency in their well-being.

Academically, she graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Chemistry from Texas A&M University, setting the stage for her illustrious medical career. Her unwavering pursuit of knowledge led her to the University of Texas McGovern Medical School in Houston, where she earned her medical degree. She further honed her expertise during her residency in obstetrics and gynecology at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, where she served as the Chief Resident in her fourth year.

Passionate about her profession, the doctor is board-certified in obstetrics and gynecology by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ABOG). The mission of the ABOG is to define specialty standards, certify obstetricians and gynecologists, and facilitate continuous learning to advance knowledge, practice, and professionalism in women’s health.

Throughout her academic and professional journey, Dr. Ellis’s dedication to advancing women’s health is underscored by her contributions to medical literature. She has published and contributed to several articles in esteemed medical journals, reflecting her commitment to staying at the forefront of her field. Additionally, her fluency in Spanish enables her to connect with a broader range of patients, ensuring they receive the care they deserve.

As an active member of the American Medical Association and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, she remains at the cutting edge of advancements in women’s healthcare. This dedication to staying current enables her to offer her patients the most up-to-date and effective treatments and procedures available.

Obstetrics and gynecology (OB-GYN) is the medical specialty that encompasses the two subspecialties of obstetrics (covering pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period) and gynecology (covering the health of the female reproductive system – vagina, uterus, ovaries, and breasts).

On a more personal level, Dr. Ellis finds solace and joy in her family. With two children who keep her on her toes, she relishes the time spent with them. In her moments of leisure, she indulges in her passion for science fiction literature and enjoys watching volleyball, whether it be on television or in person.
