ABOUT DR. ALYSSA PRICE

OBGYN Residency at the University of Connecticut, Farmington,
Dr. Alyssa Price is originally from the lone star state of Texas, and she was raised in the city of Carrollton.
“I love being back in the metroplex, so I can serve the community where I grew up.”- Dr. Price.
Growing up she always knew she wanted to be a doctor. There are no other doctors within her family, but she has always known this is what she wanted to do. Dr. Price fell in love with OBGYN as a specialty when she began her 3rd-year medical school rotations. Her most memorable experience was when she shadowed a patient through her prenatal visits, helped deliver her baby, and saw her for follow-up at her postpartum visit.
Walking through this experience with a patient firsthand helped her see how rewarding this specialty can be. From there, she was able to explore all the other aspects of the specialty that make it so diverse, hands-on, technically challenging, and exciting.
Dr. Price was the first person in her family to complete a bachelor’s degree and become a doctor. She completed her undergraduate degree in Child Development at Texas Women’s University, Master’s degree at University of North Texas Health Sciences Center, and attended medical school at Texas Tech Health Sciences Center Paul L. Foster School of Medicine in El Paso.
Under many achievements, Dr. Price graduated magna cum laude from Texas Women’s University, received an award for completing over 350 volunteer service hours during medical school, and was elected to serve on the Student Leadership Team for the Medical Student Run Free Clinic at Texas Tech Health Sciences Center Paul L. Foster School of Medicine.
This will be her fifth year of practicing as a medical doctor. Dr. Price enjoys helping women through all walks of life. She believes it is an honor to be a part of some of the most important moments women will experience. OBGYN is a rewarding specialty; she enjoys all aspects of the job, from helping women in the office, to the OR, and the delivery room.
Dr. Price specializes in low and high-risk obstetrics, postpartum care, breastfeeding medicine, minimally invasive surgery, robotic surgery, and much more.
For Dr. Price, becoming a doctor has been her most tremendous success of her professional career. Her greatest personal success was becoming a mom to her two beautiful children.
When not practicing, Dr. Price enjoys spending time with her husband, two children, and close family and friends. The Price family enjoys walks, hikes, shopping, and trying new restaurants.
Dr. Price feels very honored to join the MacArthur Family and is ready to serve the community.
“From the very first interview, I have felt supported as a physician joining the practice.”
