Dr. Riley, I can’t thank you enough for making my visit a wonderful experience. This is my third time seeing anOBGYN and I had a lot of questions and concerns that my primary doctor couldn’t answer. Dr Riley went through my medical history/records and talked to me about my problems, thoroughly, before giving me suggestions. She’s very knowledgeable and made my visit productive. I’m glad I found an OBGYN that I can trust and feel comfortable with.

This was my first visit to the office. Everyone I encountered was friendly, conversational and engaging. The staff turnedwhat could’ve been an unpleasant/uncomfortable visit, in to an enjoyable one. I will definitely be back!

About Dr. Carolyn Riley

Dr. Carolyn Riley was raised in Los Angeles, California. She is board certified in obstetrics and gynecology. She graduated with honors from Xavier University of Louisiana where she received a Bachelor of Science degree. She completed her undergraduate medical education at Meharry Medical College School of Medicine prior to completing her residency training in obstetrics and gynecology at Tulane University. Dr. Riley chose obstetrics and gynecology as her life’s work because she enjoys guiding women through the progression of their reproductive years and assisting them through a smooth transition into menopause. During her her years in private practice, she has observed a growing need to address the weight loss needs of her patients. It is this observation that has ignited a passion to practice weight loss medicine. Her goal at the end of every patient encounter is that each person leaves feeling a little more empowered than when she/he arrived. In her office, Dr. Riley offers weight loss and gynecologic services that are tailored to individual needs. She has special interests in weight loss medicine, adolescent health, abnormal uterine bleeding, minimally invasive surgery, and educating women about their bodies and their health. Dr. Riley is a proud member of The Obesity Medicine Association, as well as The American Congress of Obstetrics and Gynecology and The National Medical Association. Her personal interests include traveling, exploring new restaurants, attending sporting events, listening to music, attending plays, and spending time with family and friends. Dr. Riley is happily married and has a wonderful 15 year old daughter. Dr. Riley and her family recently moved to Dallas from Houston.

Went in for an annual women's exam. It was very efficient. Make sure to check in on ZocDoc ahead of time to cut down paperwork when you get to the office.

I went to Dr.Riley’s office today and I can’t tell you enough how thankful I am to have found her! She ACTUALLY listened to my concerns, explained the details of what we were going through by each step, and had outof this world bedside manner! She was not pushy, nor dismissive of anything and I felt like she really heard my concerns and offered helpful solutions of what the best next step may be for ME and not just like I was patient #XYZ pushing me through to the end of the line like other gynecologist/OBGYN or shutting me down like I was made my symptoms up. Thank you sincerely Dr.Riley for all that you do and your kindness; it is noted and Malden a difference. I finally found my go to lady doctor! I will recommend!!

She was thorough and concerned with my needs. She did not judge me like other doctors did about my weight, and listened to all of my questions. I did not feel anxious like I did with other doctors as well.

I came into the office for my annual Pap smear and to inquire on a issue I’m currently having. My pap lasted all of 5 mins definitely the quickest I’ve ever had that wouldn’t be a problem for me however themain issue I wanted to be seen for was not resolved or mentioned.Now I’ll be seeing another OBGYN at a different office this week for the same issue I will not be returning to this practice or referring anyone here!

This was my first pap smear and she made me feel really comfortable and made sure I understood everything. She also educated me on things I asked about beyond the general "yes or no" answers.

I never write reviews on anything, but I had to make sure to leave one for Dr. Riley and her entire office. She was kind, well-mannered, extremely professional, and respectful. So one was everyone else in her office! I don’t thinkI would go back to any other GYN after seeing her. I am extremely impressed!
