Welcome to the Journey!

I'm Luissa Kiprono,

My professional story...

Helping people has inspired and fueled me since a young age. Becoming a women's physician, first an obstetrician-gynecologist, then Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialist has helped me attain this goal for the past twenty years.

Let’s get started. Who am I? Dr. Luissa K, a women’s doctor & healer of souls.

The desire to help people inspired and fueled me from a young age. Becoming a women’s physician—first an obstetrician-gynecologist, and then a maternal-fetal medicine specialist—has allowed me to fulfill this desire over the past twenty years.

When I cared for patients of all ages and from all walks of life, through my residency and fellowship, in academia, as a military doctor, and later in private practice, I discovered a privilege incomparable with anything I had ever experienced: the power of doing good, making a difference in peoples’ lives, and helping them regain something that most of us mistakenly take as status quo, our health.

Thirty-six years ago, one month shy of turning nineteen years old — a refugee from former Communist Romania — you could say that I was born again. I gained resilience, experienced the rollercoasters of a new journey, mastered a new language, a new system, and a new way of life.

One thing remained steadfast through it all: my desire to help people heal. And I started to realize that people need emotional and spiritual healing as well as the physical, organic form. This realization led me to my next chapter, writing my first non-fiction book based on the first fifteen years of my reborn life. Having the tenacity to take this step meant coming full circle spiritually, making it my mission through my own vulnerability and life experience to help my fellow women and patients face their own fears, overcome perceived shortcomings, and pursue their inner value.

In the summer of 2022, when my employer’s practice closed its doors in San Antonio, I knew I had the opportunity of a lifetime. I could serve my two life missions: professionally, through my maternal-fetal telemedicine practice TeleMed MFM, https://telemedmfm.com/, I could make high-risk pregnancy care available to all women beyond borders or geographical limitations; and holistically through my book PUSH, THEN BREATHE: Trauma, Triumph, and the Making of an American Doctor and my platform Dr. Luissa K I could reach out to all women to join the quest for self-empowerment.

 I invite you to join in this search for self-empowerment, defining intentional presence, and resilience.
