Learn more about our Round Rock OBGYN, Dr. Alicia Hernandez

Dr. Alicia Hernandez has always loved obstetrics and gynecology. She values the continuity of care and the variety of tasks she gets to do as an OBGYN. She says, “As a woman, it’s nice to take care of other women.”

After college, she spent some time doing research at Duke University and Massachusetts General Hospital. She enjoyed the work, but she realized that she wanted to interact with patients and decided to pursue a career in medicine.

Dr. Alicia Hernandez received her education at several prestigious institutions

This Round Rock OBGYN attended high school at Phillips Exeter Academy, an esteemed boarding school in New Hampshire. She stayed in the Eastern U.S. for her undergraduate education at Duke University. When it was time for medical school, Dr. Hernandez returned to Texas to attend the University of Texas Medical School in Houston. For residency, she moved to New York City to complete her medical training at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.

After her residency training, Dr. Alicia Hernandez worked as an instructor in obstetrics, gynecology and reproductive science at Mount Sinai Doctors Brooklyn Heights for several months, before moving on to NYOBGYN, a private practice affiliated with Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City.

Back to Texas to practice at Oakwood Women’s Centre

Dr. Hernandez’ parents have lived in Texas for around 20 years, but this Round Rock OBGYN grew up and was primarily educated in the east. She says, “I’m sort of new to Texas and from Texas in the same breath, so it’s been nice to come back here and work in the place where I trained.” She is looking forward to seeing patients at Women’s Health Texas.

With two young daughters at home, Dr. Alicia Hernandez spends most of her free time with her children and her husband. She also enjoys skiing and running when she has the opportunity.

Dr. Hernandez provides compassionate, comprehensive wellness, gynecological and obstetrical care for women of all ages. To make an appointment with our Round Rock OBGYN, contact us.
