Dr. Lisa DeAngelis
A typical grade school student in Brecksville, OH most-likely would select something other than a Merck manual for casual reading, however Dr. Lisa DeAngelis
was not a typical grade-schooler.
Intrigued by the effects of illness on the human body, it was clear from an early age that she
wanted to be a scientist or a doctor.
It was during her
first year of medical school at The University of Toledo College of Medicine
that women's health care caught Dr. DeAngelis'
The blend of surgery and preventative care, reinforced by an interest in the specific medical issues faced by women influenced her
decision to complete her
residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Connecticut
The desire to be a woman to whom other women could go to for trusted care led Dr. DeAngelis to join Litchfield County OB/GYN in 2011, where she has since become a valued physician with Women's Health Connecticut.
The community hospital setting in Torrington, CT allows Dr. Lisa DeAngelis
to know most of her
prenatal patients by name.
"I really enjoy the continuity of care, getting to know patients personally and developing relationships with them," shared Dr. DeAngelis
when asked what she
loves most about being an Ob/Gyn.
"It's very rewarding when a woman lets you into her
life to help with a problem or guide her
through a pregnancy.
Delivering a healthy baby and solving a woman's health issue are the fulfilling results for Dr. DeAngelis
as well for her
For a young woman, that very first Ob/Gyn visit can be an overwhelming experience.
Lindsey Rodrigues, 20, shared with Women's Health Connecticut
found Dr. DeAngelis
and all her
worries were put to rest.
"I was looking online for what to expect when going to the gynecologist for the first time.
I kept finding all these traumatic stories other women had posted and wasn't sure what to think.
Thankfully I found the Women's Health CT website and made an appointment with Dr. DeAngelis
Everyone I dealt with at the office was very nice and helpful and Lisa
is the best!"
"I loved that Dr. DeAngelis
is young, female doctor; she
made me feel totally comfortable.
Lindsey said she would definitely recommend Dr. DeAngelis
to her friends so they too can have a great doctor.
